Dealers and Collectors Remain Selective

áááááBust Half Dollars are very attractive to most dealers and collectors at present levels. They are in strong demand and have been for the last year. Dealers have raised their buy prices for individual dates and grades. Strict grading is a must and the more original the higher the asking price.

áááááA coin you do not usually see in large supply is the Standing Liberty Quarter in Mint State. These are aggressively collected because of their beauty and they are a short set. Dealers are increasing their buy prices and still are unable to locate enough coins. The Full Head specimens are a difficult find and usually priced above current FMV levels.

áááááKey date coins in most modern series, such as Indian and Lincoln Cents, Buffalo Nickels, Mercury Dimes, and Walking Liberty Half Dollars are still easy sellers. Most dealers will pay slightly above present wholesale levels. Dealers know collectors need these coins to build their sets. These are some of the most popular sets with new collectors.
