An Incredible $15 snag off ebay...

#1 Unread post by Mrweaseluv »

was shopping for a 68-69 wheat cent for my type set, and as i expected, I got a 1958 (figured on a 55-58 as least expensive)
What I never expected was to get it for the opening bid of $14.99 :D This just made my day :D
Bright pic's were the sellers, dark pic's are NGCs.

Yup yup got rolls myself of 55-58 all pretty and red.. but getting an MS68 or 69 out of em is another story.
getting an MS68 for less then the cost of slabbing is a great buy. To be honest I have sent off 30 pretty red cents just last year.. of the lot the highest came back ms64 and that just doesn't cut it for my type set :D
