Registry Collectors in Hot Pursuit

May 5, 2014

     Gold is trying to make another run the last few trading days and this morning it is up to $1,310. Experts cite the conflict between the Ukraine and Russia as the main reason for stronger metals. Most dealers feel that the metals will certainly move toward previous highs but it may not be this year. Over the last several months this is how Gold looked at the beginning of each month.

November 2013$1,306.75
December 2013$1,229.50
January 2014$1,225.00
February 2014$1,262.00
March 2014$1,349.50
April 2014$1,283.75
May 2014$1,278.50

     Some analysts think that $1,400 is a reasonable target for this year.

     Proof Gold Eagles in the OGP are wholesaling at $1,550 per one ounce and there is about an 8% premium for the one-tenth ounce coins. Proof Silver Eagles are trading at $50 in today’s market. Circulated Silver Dollars are very strong with lots of demand among dealers. VG’s are selling for $28,500 per 1,000 coin bag. Silver bags are right at $15,000.

     Registry Set collectors remain steadfast in their pursuit of highest grades for specific series. Many increases are included in this week’s Moderns Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide. In the Kennedy Half Dollar series the 1964 Accented Hair variety is still very active at current levels with some dealers willing to pay premiums for the highest grades available. These are few and far between, especially above PR66 in Cameo and Deep Cameo. The 1965 to 1967 SMS coins are difficult to locate in Cameo and Deep Cameo as well; the 1967 SMS Deep Cameo 67 is now up to $740 Market. These coins have tremendous demand and there is very limited availability.

     Highest grade Lincoln Cents are still a mainstay for many collectors. Coins with extra eye appeal can bring premiums of the new higher levels. The 1934 D in MS67 Red is up to $1,475 Market and the 1936 S Red in the same grade is $850. Below are a few others with the previous Market price listed along with the current Market price.
