Silver Surfer Quarter Coming to Shore
About a month ago I posted a second report on the market for the promotional Silver Surfer quarter created by Franklin Mint for the Twentieth Century Fox - Marvel Entertainment film, indicating that prices were dropping, and supply was still available. Since then many new film releases have taken theater space away from Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, so I though it might be a good time to look again at how the market is treating these interesting cross collectibles.
A quick search of last weeks eBay sales for the Silver Surfer quarter reveal a continuing decline in prices realized. Seems that most of them are now being sold in the $25 to $35 range, either in single offerings or in pairs. Most examples opening for more than $35 or so don't seem to be selling, though there are still a few people fishing in that area of the lake.
As for quantity available, there still seems to be a reasonable amount of supply in the market, and demand remains healthy, though prices would indicate that it is slowly tapering off as the film exits the first run theaters. If you have been waiting to buy one once the price goes down, now is the time to begin looking for a bargain and keeping an eye on how many are offered each week. Silver Surfer quarters may still get cheaper, but the lower the price goes the less you will see sellers offering them.
