Certified 1908 No Motto St Gaudens $20 US Gold - Fair Market Value

Post by Michael W. T. Ho » Thu, 20 Mar 1997 04:00:00



Can anyone tell me the fair market value of a 1908 St Gaudens $20 from
Philadelphia without the motto?  It is certified by either NGC or PCGS, I
don't know which.  I'd also be interested to know of a web site which has such
information available.  I used to look at a site which is no longer there.  
Any lead to a good pricing guide on the web, or a current fair market value

Mike, do you what grade is that coin, because it has a big factor in
price when you take grade into consideration.  I think a link from
http://www.coin-universe.com may help you in this.  Anyone else out here
know the web site that has the market values (b/c IDKIFTTOMH (because I
don't know it from the top of my head))?

First of all, the fair market value first and foremost depends on the
condition of the coin.  A certified MS-64 is obviously more valuable
than a certified MS-62.

Also, while one of the attempts of slabbing was to enable "sight unseen"
trading, it has actually hurt, in many cases, the value of really
choice pieces for a grade.

Think about it.  If I advertised to buy slabbed MS-63 Saints for (say)
$600 sight unseen, I'm probably setting my price at what I would pay
for the very *worst* looking coin likely to get the MS-63 designation,
and probably sell it off to a wholesaler after that.  If I were a
dealer, I'd be stupid to do it any other way.  

Yet that also tends to underestimate the value of the more choice MS-63
Saints, those with very nice eye appeal (fewer marks, better luster,
and so on).  So if someone sells it to a dealer "sight unseen," they'd
get less money than a reputable, quality-minded dealer would likely pay
for a "sight seen" MS-63 of very high quality (relative to the grade).

Of course, quality is subjective, but almost all of us can agree that
certain coins at a certain slabbed grade are "nicer" than others
also slabbed at the same grade.

Might I be the first one to say "HUH?" And why are we yelling at each
other?
