All I have to do is LOOK!
I have been looking to add to my SP69 Satin Lincoln set and I had several bookmarked on eBay. I also collect Kennedys and there were several of those on my watch list also. It so happened that one seller had an 2007-P SP69 Lincoln that I needed for my set, but he also had an SP69 Kennedy of the same year. Same seller, same grade, same strike. DIFFERENT COIN!!!!
You have probably figured it out by now. Yeah, I bought the wrong coin.
I contacted the seller and he was willing to work with me. I asked that he accept payment, retain the Kennedy that I didn't need and put the 07 Lincoln on hold. He agreed to use the Kennedy payment as a "down payment" for the Lincoln coin (my coin budget for the month was exhausted for July at this point).
In the end I couldn't go through with it. I just didn't want to make the seller jump through hoops for my mistake.
On it's way to me is an NGC SP69 2007-P Kennedy.
Top grade coin (none higher), 649,076 mintage and it only cost me $60.00.
Mistake? Well, maybe. I will find out in a few years. It may be the most profitable mistake I ever made.
