Peter, I found these 2 listing. They do look like BU quality to me. Also one with the COA claims that its a BU version.

I was wondering if it is because the BU version was the "Exported" version while the Proof version is both exported and sold to domestic market? As all the Chinese dealers I have ask, they say they never heard of a BU version.

I have both types in my collection.  Colin has always listed both varieties on his web site and NGC has certified both types.  Is is possible that there aren't two varieties but just two diffrent COA's?  I suppose.

I can upload photos tonight.  I don't recall off hand if the varieties look different in hand.

These certainly look like proof and BU versions to me.  I have the COA's and boxes too but it will take a while to dig them up.

unusual thing is that the BU version is more rare than the proof.  You don't see that often in the panda series.

$60 for shipping? That's insulting. The Postal Service charges $26 for sending a small box to Asia by registered mail.

It's insane.  But if the cost is clearly stated before the bid/buy, then backing out of the deal is a breach of contract.

The 1993 that is posted here on the Forum is a Shanghai Large Date. The eBay item is a 1993 Shenyang Small Date.

THx peter. I just ain't good enough to tell the difference just by using pictures from Ebay.... Especially for 1992 and 1993 which IMO is impossible unless I get the both style on hand.

By the way I am asking the seller since it fail to sell it, to sell it to me for USD 90, as I have also won the following 1996, 97 & 98 Large Date ( I got all small dates for these years), is USD 90 a good price if I get it?
