This grouping of sales consists of items sold that normally are not found priced in any of the grey sheets. Nor, can be found in published books showing specialty items. If prices are listed in books, when the book hits the market, these prices are out of date.
Many of these lots are third party slabbed and graded. Others, may be too big to fit in holders due to the error. Or, multiple errors not found or listed anywhere else. Currency and foreign errors are also included.
