I certainly notice that CAC coins at auction tend to sell for more money than non-CAC, and appear to sell to retail buyers/end-users more often than non-CAC coins.Let’s say you read about an auction that contains some great Liberty Head eagles that bring very strong prices. Should you turn around and sell as soon as possible? Sometimes you get lucky and can find the underbidder who just missed out on a record-setting coin.But more often than not he was an underbidder who might not feel so good about the level he was at a second time.
I think the best thing about CAC is that it instills confidence in buyers and makes a coin more liquid.
If they know that you are in a situation of desperation, it is likely that they’ll take advantage of you.
The worst thing that you can do as a seller is to tell someone–even someone that you have a “close” relationship with–that you have to sell a coin and that you need a fair offer.
That will give you enough time to prepare the coin for sale, market it, and give the buyer time to pay if this becomes a factor.
Although the internet is blurring the traditional coin seasons, the two best times of the year for selling your coins are still around the FUN show in January and at the summer ANA in July or August.
