My 2 kopeks' worth of advice:

You have to buy the coin, not the slab! :ninja:

 

Without pictures, or seeing the coin in hand, it is impossible to say whether the prices are good or not.

OH MY! $169 for 20 kopecks 1915 :ninja: Doesn't matter if these coins in such grade, it doesn't cost so much anyway. I bought 4 of same year last weekend in same condition for $3 each. It is quite cheap even for my country but I will have hard time to sell them here more than for $15 (usually it goes around $10-12). I guess your dealer just want a lot of money for things that cost lot cheaper.

"1812-EM HM 2 Kopecks NGC AU58BN Choice glossy surfaces. $225"

 

Really? I think its bit high... but then again it has a plastic box with a printed sticker and hologram..

Hey, plastic is expensive! They make that stuff from oil, you know. :ninja:

And Holograms are very high-tech, which is also expensive. In fact, i predict in the future, slabs will contain a HOLOGRAM of the coin, instead of the actual coin, and the actual coin will be stored in a pcgs bunker 2 miles underground, on the island of Svalbard.

North East Numismatics are known for slabbing coins (and now medals too) and trying to get top $ for it. Well, I guess there is nothing wrong with it. At least they are a reputable outfit. If the coins do not sell in the first two weeks, I am sure you will be able to negotiate a better deal.

They are currently offering this coin which, I was interested to learn, is not only a kopeck but rare as well.

 

Russia

1925

1 Kopeck

NGC - MS64BN

A rare issue and exceptional quality. $695

 

Of course, only a fool would buy such a coin raw (or so I've been told).

Thanks for sharing a good Hi Resolution Picture of your pol-kopek _ I was looking for picture of 1/2 kopek coins and I have got one from you - but this is a better picture then the one I have already got :ninja:

 

Thanks

 

Is there a place on the net or maybe in this forus where they teach you how to take great pictures of your coins (not scaning the coins)?

I have seen great pictures of coins arround (i.e gxseries coins) and I would be glad to take some pictures of my coins also ;)

 

Thanks again

You're welcome, but neither of the pol-kopeks I posted belong to me. I have a few Soviet coins, but not of this type. I collect (when I can) Imperial coins.

 

Thanks to Hussulo for the great coin photography link which I have now bookmarked.
