Insane prices

I looked at this sale and was surprised at some of the estimates they have. Crazy prices, but this has been going on for a while now. For high end coins the insanity continues. It will be interesting to see if these prices can continue if the West starts to freeze assets of Russians. This may have unexpected consequences.

Pretty, but ...

It is a very pretty coin, but the surfaces are not pristine, and even if they were I think the estimate would ridiculous. Either the consignor is dreaming or has a person with unlimited funds on the hook.
