In the post Is numismatics in danger? I made a reference to a 2016 Silver Eagle costing $53.95 when purchased from the U.S, Mint and $21.19 when purchased from an online coin shop. Like a moron, I was comparing a Proof ASE to a regular strike ASE. That's what I get for hurrying. I have removed that part of the post. Sorry for the mistake!
The REAL price difference between the U.S. Mint and an online coin shop for SIMILAR products (2016 ASE Proof) is:
U.S. Mint - $53.95
Online Coin Shop - $55.99
The U.S. Mint price is clearly better.
