The boos you mention, while definitely standards in the hobby, all have the prices way too elevated for what actual prices are. I own al three myself as references but understand the listed prices are there just to let me know whether the coin is face value, somewhat desired, or greatly desired in the hobby.

Part of the elevated prices is b/c the books list what you would expect to PAY for one (not get when selling - I know, seems contradictory, but in real life its not). Another reason they prices are too high is that they only have once chance to guess what price might be somewhat correct in the coming year. So they set them higher. unlike eBay, the prices in the books are static.

If you cannot find one on eBay sold, shoot us a pic and we can help you find it. After awhile you will be practiced enough to find them for yourself.

This is an excellent example of coins that have been graded/attributed/valued on a flip by undereducated collectors.

Very rarely will you find two coins that look alike, this will not add any value to the coin.
