That is less than melt, It might be a good deal if close by and you dont have to spend much on gas. try coinflation.com to see if you can get a better idea of melt value.

$55 is the total as it would be shipped to me. Dates are all common ones.

Don't pay for shipped items on craigslist. It's all scams!

Trolling is an art.

I just asked them to lower it to $50. though i feel bad because the guy already took the ad off CL and that was this morning. I'd be put off if I went through the trouble doing that for someone else...

All scams huh. Wow that's a scary thought. I guess i'm too trusting with CL.


I am going to buy them for $50 so i'm happy with that price.

You can sidestep would-be scammers by following these common-sense rules:

* DEAL LOCALLY WITH FOLKS YOU CAN MEET IN PERSON - follow this one simple rule and you will avoid 99% of the scam attempts on craigslist.
* NEVER WIRE FUNDS VIA WESTERN UNION, MONEYGRAM or any other wire service - anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer.
* FAKE CASHIER CHECKS & MONEY ORDERS ARE COMMON, and BANKS WILL CASH THEM AND THEN HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE when the fake is discovered weeks later.
* CRAIGSLIST IS NOT INVOLVED IN ANY TRANSACTION, and does not handle payments, guarantee transactions, provide escrow services, or offer "buyer protection" or "seller certification"
* NEVER GIVE OUT FINANCIAL INFORMATION (bank account number, social security number, eBay/PayPal info, etc.)
* AVOID DEALS INVOLVING SHIPPING OR ESCROW SERVICES and know that ONLY A SCAMMER WILL "GUARANTEE" YOUR TRANSACTION.

Trolling is an art.

I would have passed on this one. The would have to be MS-63 or 4 before I'd consider taking that chance.
