....The first Long Beach Expo of the year is this week and begins Wednesday for dealers. The Heritage Auction will feature numerous rarities including a 1921 $20 Saint Gaudens in PCGS MS62 with a current Market value of $97,500 and always popular with only 61 coins certified in MS62 and higher....

....The Modern Bullion charts contain an enormous amount of increases this week with Gold, Silver, and Platinum on the rise. Common date $50 Gold in MS69 is up to $1,240 Market and the lower denominations are higher as well. Still, there are many PR70 & MS70 dates that are lower; resistance to the previous levels is evident and these highest grade coins need to be discounted to entice buyers. The 1987 $50 Gold in MS70 is down to $2,350 Market and the 1989 $25 Gold in MS70 is lower at $7,850....

....The Walking Liberty Half Dollar has always been popular with collectors. However, since the beginning of 2012, prices for the most common dates have fallen considerably; the MS64 is down from $64 to $47 Market, the MS65 is down from $122 to $79, the MS66 is down from $185 to $125, and the MS67 is down from $665 to $440 Market. These are sizable drops, yet, at these lower prices, these dates have the potential to increase in value as they could bounce back in the coming years. Also, today’s market is allowing buyers to be more selective and purchase only the coins that appear to be upper end and have good eye appeal....

....Just as surely as the end of the year brings lower prices in many series due to a lack of dealer activity, you can count on the trend reversing as January rolls around. In this week’s LD Wholesale Market Dealer Price Guide there are a lot of increases to help balance out the number of declines....

....The highlights continued with the sale of an 1839 O Reeded Edge Half Dollar in NGC PR65 that realized $211,500 and the exceptionally rare and infrequently available 1884 Trade Dollar in PCGS PR63 that sold for $423,000. The previous Market price of $235,000 for the Trade Dollar will be adjusted dramatically....

....There may be a lot of bargain-hunting going on in the wholesale market but that does not mean real buyers are not looking for rarities. The latest Legend Rare Coin Auctions, Regency Auction XIX, took place in Las Vegas at the PCGS Members Only show last week. One of the many highlights of this important sale was a set of Buffalo Nickels; many finest knowns and some with spectacular color. Nearly every coin in this set brought a substantial premium above the NumisMedia Market price....

....Despite the lower prices, dealers are determined to buy and sell rare coins at current levels in hopes of stabilizing the price structure. One area that has been active is the Morgan Dollar market; common dates in MS63 through MS66 are steady at current Market prices. However, buyers have been somewhat selective looking for mostly white coins....

....The 1909 S VDB Lincoln Cent is very popular and always in demand; lately, there have been too many available in the market and buyers have been able to be picky. The MS65 in Brown is down to $2,250 and the Red & Brown dropped to $2,375. With such a small difference in the current price between the two, most serious buyers would likely be looking for a nice RB over the Brown cent....

....With the metals weakening it is difficult to find positives in the market. However, recent auctions indicate that there are still many active buyers looking for rare coins, which is leading to some increasing prices and many are substantial. The 1852 O $10 Gold is an extremely rare coin with just three coins certified in Mint State; the highest is MS61. There are only 184 coins certified in all circulated grades. With the recent auction sale, the MS60 Market price has jumped to $28,500; this is an increase of over 70%. The adjustment was significant because this rare coin had not been on the market for many years....

....Another extreme rarity in this Heritage Auctions sale was the 1870 S Seated Dollar in NGC XF40. There is just one Mint State coin certified by either service, PCGS MS62, and there are presumably only 12 coins known. This XF40 Seated Dollar sold for $434,750....
