** Heritage FUN 2000 Signature, average of 3 MS66 Lots 7983-5 (old)
However, a Wells Fargo slab (66) sold for $3220
Lot 573 FUN Bullet, so hype did have an effect on 2 bidders
A WFNG lot on Teletrade late last year was bid to only $1750,
but did not meet the seller's reserve and was not reauctioned.
*** Heritage Santa Clara Signature, Nov.1999, MS67 lot 7028
Retail: In late 1999, Tulving was selling old NM 66 slabs for $1895
and Wells Fargo 66 slabs for $2295. Now, Tulving no longer lists
Wells Fargo for sale (except MS68) and lists 1908NM for $1695.
Poor suckers who bought 1908NM last year!
SS Central America will have a larger effect on the availability of
MS T1 G$20 than WFNG had on high grade 1908NM.
The reported $100 million price for 3 tons of gold works out to
around $1000/oz or 4 times bullion. Coin sales will have to be
much higher than that to offset lower premiums on large bars.
2000 is NOT the 21st century. 2001 is. You can look it up at U.S.
