From the same lot that silverfever bought at a BIN price of $500.  
http://china-mint.info/forum/index.php?topic=2193.msg43744#msg43744

It is at$410 with 65 bids.  Seems to have a lot of interests.

The updated census of small D is still at 13.  Give it a few weeks, it will rocket upward.

Edit: I see the auction has ended at $410.  Not bad, since small D is distributed inside China, the price in China should be lower, so $500 eBay is about the right price, for now.

Now that XuHong entered the arena and made a nice profit with his first flip, the game is on.  China is where the action is, so dragondollar, I hope you'll give us periodic updates.  Your sheet of 10 is a bit of dilemma.  It probably will be the few surviving sheet of 10.  Forgery of small D is not far behind and intact sheet of 10 will protect you in somewhat.  Still, I would take high quality photo and post them here on CCF as date stamps to establish its pedigree if you want to keep it in OMP.

Actually, I sent it for grading today already, while going to the EMS office send my last loose coin. I also went to the smaller 爱家 market nearby. There was a grand total of 9 2001-D there, not in pouches but directly in capsules... I have always thought this market was somewhat crappy. All were big D anyway. I start to think I was really lucky to get this sheet of coins back in the days.

That's for the offline report. On Taobao, there is a truckload of Ds available, but only big Ds. I guess all the serious guys picked it clean already.

This thread is read 5784 times at this moment.  I'm sure there are enough Chinese readers that the big marketplaces are already picked clean.

I'm glad you sent them in to NGC.  I'm biased toward NGC/PCGS, but that's just my opinion.

I hope no one here accuses you for shilling or hyping up the 2001 Small "d"...

dragondollar,
Is this your French friend?  Someone from Paris found a sheet of ten 2001D small D, and one of them is a MS70.  He is asking a lot of money for it, $6K.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/2001D-PERFECT-SMALL-D-Silver-Panda-China-1oz-MS-70-SUPER-RARE-NGC-POP-1-/230902820861?pt=US_World_Coins&hash=item35c2e16ffd

I did find a couple small-D from older NGC certified slabs,  2780136-046, -047.  So they do exist previously, but rarely.

I don't know this french seller, but it is a possibility one of the sheet I got originally for my friend was sold to this seller. My friend sold a bunch at the time, and got others from different sources, so he was not able to tell me how much coins he had left from what I provided him at the time.

I don't understand why -018 is MS 70, while it has a dark spot at about 4 o'clock on the reverse, while -017 looks flawless...

Let's hope this proves to be "The Sleeper".

That the 2000 Mirror, the 1995 Micro Date, and the 1998 Large Date didn't.

Maybe a temporary sleeper.  Many more varieties to be discovered...............
