Wholesalers Spur Advances

     Dealers are confident that the increase in wholesale trading over the last couple of weeks signifies a change in market momentum. With the success of the ANA and summer winding down, buyers are back into the market and ready to participate once again. Dealers need coins for these aggressive buyers and are willing to pay in advance of current listed wholesale prices for properly graded coins.

     In addition, with bullion having retreated significantly in the last few weeks, it affords investors another opportunity to buy modern issues at reduced levels from the recent highs. This lower market also attracts those who buy generic U.S. Gold coins, $5’s, $10’s, and $20’s since these values have also dropped in recent weeks. As long as collectors are confident in the future rise in bullion, today’s prices can represent great opportunities for future growth.

     Results from the ANA are apparent in this week’s LD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide, especially for the early issues from and around 1800. Bust and Seated material continue to create higher wholesale prices. We have added new prices to specific issues in grades where we previously had no active information. For example, in the Half Dimes, the 1842 O in MS 66 is now listed at $19,500 wholesale and the 1853 O No Arrows in MS63 at $15,000. Issues such as these typically have a very low census and do not trade very often. There are many other increases this week, including Half and Large Cents.
