1983 Mint Set

I am not an expert, but it seems the Russian Mint Set from 1983 offer on ebay is a bit expensive by today's standards. Any ideas.

Here is the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/1983-Leningrad-Mint-Russia-9-piece-Set-coins-USSR-/300504977888?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item45f77e11e0

I know the 1974 and 1976 command a bit of a premium, especially with a special 20 kopek piece, but this is a "highway ROBBERY".

 

I don't know much about these, but according to coins.su excel price guide (can be found in the BKB's soviet coins thread), the 1983 set should be about 5000 roubles, so the current ebay price is consistent with that estimate.

I undwerstand that the catalogue price is 5000 roubles, but if I use US as an analogy - Mint sets from 1967, 68, 69, 70 are priced in catalogues for way higher than I get people to buy from me )about $5. Som is 1983 better than lets say 1974 or 1976?

No the set is in this large carboard folder type, with 2 sets to a page. I've seen those on ebay before for about $500.

Honestly, since my move I dont even know where the mint sets are :unsure::confus:

I will find them eventually, but I know I paid no more than $8/set about 4-5 years ago.

I will take 1970 off your hands any day for double that. :grin:
