Information about the Auction Prices Realized

The prices realized include all buyers fees. The letters A, N, or P following the selling price identify the grading service: ANACS, NGC, or PCGS. Raw coins are not included since the grading is less consistent.

The data covers all Teletrade, Heritage, Bowers & Merena, Superior and Stacks auctions since June 1996 for which prices realized is available to the compiler (i.e. a few auction sales for these firms aren't included: data is not complete).

Only the three most recent auction sales for each grade are included.

Some of the lots have been re-acquired by the consignor, especially for Stack's sales. Stack's does not distinguish buybacks in their prices realized, unlike the other firms.

Not all data has been double-checked (i.e. some database entries may be incorrect).
