Don't be a chump

Hi everyone. Was looking on Ebay today trying to add some Lincolns to my registry set when I came across listing number 200331820150. It is for a 2005D NGC MS69 Red Lincoln memorial. I made an offer for $95.00 which is a little over list and was rejected. I then realized the seller was asking $995.00 for this coin. Are you #%*@^+% kidding me. I ask the seller if I had misread the list price and his response was that this is a
Business Strike coin and not a SMS coin. I am very aware of the difference. Wow, some people have a lot of nerve. This seller states he is a certified NGC dealer and ANA member. Come on, you know what this coin is worth or you should. Granted, it is your coin and you can ask what you want for it. This coin list for $69.00. It has a population report of 94. I am not an expert by any means because I have made my share of collecting mistakes over the years and it is because of sellers like this hoping to take advantage of a CHUMP. I took my share of lumps buying coins without having the proper knowledge or info. You should be ashamed of yourself. I do not know how sellers like this do it. Look for yourself and see. $69.00 coin listing for $995.00. Do I look like I was born yesterday?
