I've been selling off my Dad's Morgan dollar collection for a few months now, and now that I'm getting to the end of that supply, I'm starting to dig through his Peace dollars to figure out the best way to sell them on eBay.
When selling Morgan dollars in auctions, I found that I didn't need to set a high minimum bid or a reserve to get a decent price. the auctions naturally averaged out at least more than $20/coin, which I was happy with.
However, I'm looking through the Peace dollar auctions, and I'm seeing a disturbing number of them sell for .99 cents or significantly less than $20. Since Morgan and Peace dollars have the same amount of silver, I don't understand what's going on. Can anyone give me any insight into this? Is the only way to get decent prices for Peace dollars to use BIN?
