In mint state, about 5200, vs. an existing population of 37 (NGC
and PCGS). The pre-release Numismedia fmv was around $6200 (MS62),
more expensive than the 1865-S whose population was recently
augmented from the Brother Jonathan shipwreck to 500 from 250
and whose price continues to drop at $5660 (MS62). David Hall
has a few on eBay, I suppose testing the waters. Two MS62s have
a starting bid of $4100. 3 days left in a 10 day auction and the
top price has risen only to $4250 which I don't think bodes
well for the rest. I've posted several times on them, with
comparisons to Brother Jonathan and Wells Fargo G$20 hoards.
I'm a buyer at MS62-$2K or so.
Or maybe I'm dreaming :)
In addition, there are about 2300 1854-S, 55-S, 56-S, and other
US and foreign coins.
2000 is NOT the 21st century. 2001 is. You can look it up at U.S.
