I've got an ANACS graded MS67 Casascius Coin... 2011, actually it's one of the ones from Mike's first day of minting on 9/7/2011!  What do you think it is worth?  I'd like to get a fair price for it, but am not sure.

I have previously sold a first-day coin (not graded) on eBay for $866.  I have also sold a graded MS63 September 19, 2011 coin for $909 on eBay, an MS63 here on the forum for 5 BTC, and an MS64 for 5.9 BTC.

Any opinions on value?  I've never done any sort of coin collecting before these Casascius coins, so I don't really know how the grades might be expected to affect value.

an NGC or PCGS ms-67 rating would be worth more, for traditional coins.  unsure if someone buying that would care or not

in general, ms67 is worth a godawful amount more than ms63 or ms64.

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

Thanks.  How much more is typical for 63/64 vs 67?  50% more or something?

Yes, yes it is.

Yes, yes it is.

triple the value or (much) more, depending on rarity of coin (*maybe how old the coin is would be more accurate...  very few coins pre-1960 or 1970 will be ms67...  before people started getting stuff just as 'collector's items'.... think of like the baseball card price crash)......

ed: ANACS is a 2nd tier grading service, for a coin of significant value, i'd get it graded by PCGS or NGC.  i don't really know what these are though?  and i guess just a niche market, instead of coin collectors as a whole?

Interesting...!  I think it certainly would affect the price given the fact that there very well could be several other early coins like this one in just as good of shape, but it really does remain to be seen how many of them are actually out there.  Especially the first-day mint coins, since those number less than 200.

Regarding ANACS, I really had no idea who to send the coins to.  I found them as the first grading service I came across in a google search, contacted them to see if they would grade Casascius coins, and the vice president came back and told me they would.  I probably won't have this coin regraded, but I'll keep that in mind for any coins I have graded in the future.  Good to know.  Smiley
