Corrections to Roll Bids on November GreysheetJohn Feigenbaum · Nov 7, 2020
Pricing Coin Dealers U.S. Coins
We have adjusted levels on uncirculated half dollar rolls based in the November Greysheet based on dealer feedback. Buyers should use the corrected levels when trading these items.
In early October we made pricing adjustments in Greysheet values for uncirculated half dollar rolls dated 1934-present. This range spans series from Walkers to Kennedys. The roll bids on the Greysheet have been a major part of our publication since our inception in 1963 but they are also problematic because values for single coins of the same issues have long be divorced, and we believe these values should match up. An "uncirculated" roll-quality Walking Liberty half is different than one expects in a Kennedy half dollar roll, so we faced some challenges in matching these up. When we published the new levels in the November Greysheet, we had some pricing problems which were quickly pointed out by several dealers, especially in Franklins and Kennedys. We worked closely with two large market-makers, and the values were adjusted as soon as we had them.

They will also appear in print in the December Greysheet. Subscribers can email us for a copy of the PDF of the specific pricing pages for rolls. Send an email to us at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
