Revised sales figures for 2008 proof Buffalo gold coins raises more questions than it answers for collectors who are anxious to pin down releative scarcity.
There are wide variations between the figures published in late March and the most recent update.
The gold ounce and tenth ounce numbers are in the same ballpark, but dramatic drops occurred for the half ounce and quarter ounce and a dramatic increase occurred for the four-coin set.
It should be remembered that the set total should be added to the individual coin totals to get the grand total for the coins of each size.
“Frankly, I think there are errors in the numbers,” said specialist Eric Jordan, who is following them closely.
