Re: trend

They are actually SELLING for between $800 and $890US on Ebay right now. These are what they actually SOLD for, not asked. Here is one currently for a best offer MS63 coin. The seller previously sold at least one other for something LESS than his asking price .. he accepted a "best offer". m
