A crazy auction result.
In last night's Heritage auction session, one of the Walkers I had my eye on, before bidding got insane, was a 1945-S PCGS MS67 CAC. The price guides, as quoted on the Heritage site, say the following: Numismedia retail, $2600; Numismedia Wholesale $2000; Numismedia PCGS (nmp), $1875; PCGS Price Guide $19,500 (Yes, $19.5K).
That last number is strikingly high, but recent Heritage results justify the price guide number. My guess is that it has to do with the PCGS registry. The 1945-S Walker in PCGS MS67 is a pop 6/0 coin. The coin in question is colorfully toned. Last night's result: $37,375.
So if you can find a really nice 1945-S Walker in NGC MS67 for a couple Gs, you might think about getting it and crossing it...
