Most Chinese do not have access to ebay. It's all about supply and demand!

"What a big gap !"

I completely agree. That is why China Pricepedia lists the region of the world in which sales take place. It's also the only China coin price guide (that I know of) that includes the author's observations on the coins, including things like white spots and grading company. I didn't invent that, though. A long time ago I saw a US coin catalog that did the same thing. I liked that feature so much that decades later I included it in China Pricepedia.

I find this extra information useful and I hope it is equally helpful to China Pricepedia's readers.

Best wishes,
