I assume that's the silver plug variety? And adjustment marks at 4 and
10 o'clock? I know markets are volatile, but that some seriously
optimistic starting price, IMO.

Dumb.
He says "AU25" but lower he cites the following grades:
-------------
MS 60-70 Uncirculated
AU 50, 53, 55, 58 About Uncirculated
XF 40, 45 Extremely Fine
VF 20, 25, 30, 35 Very Fine
F 12, 15 Fine
VG 8, 10 Very Good
G 4, 6 Good
AG 3 About Good
FR 2 Fair
PR 1 Poor


So after his own table, it's a VF25 and *not* an AU !
It's not going to sell at that price.

I think Superior has some issues either with its software or the human
bean entering the grades:

http://www.superiorgalleries.com/sub...1=582&2=-1&6=1

I see grades such as:

MS55, MS30, MS45, MS53, etc


Hilarious !

None of which are correct MS grades. Other coins do say XF45, AU50, etc
so I am not sure where the problem lies but there is obviously a
problem.


Absolutely !
Look he
http://www.superiorgalleries.com/pro...&1=582&3=45931
The slab is an XF45 but he is presenting it as an ... MS45 !!!
IMO, he is deliberately misrepresenting his coins.

I went to the page Stujoe suggested and I clicked on a coin described as ...
MS45 !
Well, it *is* a PCGS slab but it's an ... XF45 :-)
The guy is deliberately misrepresenting the coins he is selling, maybe
someone less knowledgeable will believe without watching the slab :-)

http://www.superiorgalleries.com/pro...&1=582&3=45931

His prices are also huge and IMO many coins (if not all) are overpriced !
I wonder if he sells any coins at all...

I suspect their computer system just uses MSnumerical grade.
Stupid thing is the complete lack of description for the coin,
given its value and the fact it appears to be one of the
mint-plugged specimens. Maybe they just like throwing away ebay
fees.

Not IMHO. They are making a mistake somewhere in their listing
procedures either on the human side or the computer side, IMHO.



Sure, I'm not saying I am 100% sure for them deliberately misrepresenting
their items, it's just not credible the "mistake" explanation to me...
They are not new sellers, they could have fix the bug if they wanted...
Anyway, their coins are out of my league...

This is probably valid for their e-Bay auctions.
What about the coins on their site ?...
They also have the same "fault"...
