Condition is a big determinant of the price of back-dated ase's and fractional age's, because of the way they are packaged and attrition. The vast majority are not gems.
Way back I bought a box of 20 1994 PCGS MS69s. Sequential serial numbers. I'm too embarrassed to mention what I paid. :cry_smile:
Have a tube of 96s that were never graded. They all sit in a far corner of the safe.
