    Don't mean to be a killjoy, but make sure you carefully check weight and size for authenticity. I'm one of those boneheads who will never snag something like that - I've been ripped off so many times my mantra is 'if it looks too good to be true, that's cuz it probably is'.

    If it is real, my hats off to you - unbelievable snag!

    Anything on ebay I would suspect as well. Maybe take it to a LCS dealer and pretend to be interested in selling it.

    Nah! We would not laugh at you. FWIW I posted my 6-gram .999 silver Coca-Cola bottle cap-shaped coin (see post # 9912 of this thread) that I paid $29.95 for on ebay and nobody laughed out at me.

    Well he did. :D

    I got the 1928 Condor in, it looks great. I posted the seller's pics of it at the coin collectors forum and first 3 replies to the thread all say AU, one specifically AU58.

    Value is tough. But checking Ebay, there are only three available, all MS 63, all $1413 flat to $1550 OBO. Checking sold listings, there are two, one being mine and the other an UNC Details (hairlines) that sold for $850. If I were to list it for sale, I'd price it at 875. But I'm just going to toss it on the pile.

    Somebody please win this rare and gorgeous little Sovereign. I would hate to see some heathen get it.
    I can't do it I'm still recovering from paying forced tribute to 2 Michigan townships and the secretary of state is winding up to kick me in the balls next.

    Well gold is ~ 1333 oz now, so 1333 -1279 = 54 x 2.119 oz = ~ 114 bucks under melt total. I think these are great coins even at spot. The $50 coin is gorgeous.
