I'm looking at these two SLQ. One is MS, one is high AU. Price difference is about$50.

Which would you get?

I like the 1930.

Me too; the '30 is much more visually attractive.

If we think that, so will will your buyer, should you decide to sell at a later time.

The 30 has very nice eye appeal. 1930 is $108, and the 27 is $180. The 30 also has a lower mintage.

Surprised you even had to ask us . The 1930 is hands down the better coin . Sharpen up on your eye appeal .

IMO unless you have financial restrictions ignore all coins graded in the MS-60 to -62 range.
In fact an AU-58 coin often exceeds the appearance of an MS-63 coin
The -58 generally has only minor rubs on the high points otherwise is could have been an MS-64 or higher.
A -58 generally has what's known as "cabinet friction" and is called a "slider".

I think from this you can guess which coin I would recommend.

Definitely the 1930 - the 27 may be technically superior but the eye appeal is terrible. IMHO

Good for you. I think eye appeal is very important, and 1930 looks better!

1930

Many years ago I knew a dealer who specialized in AU "slider" coins. He told me that these were the best coins to buy: they looked BU in so many cases and came at a fraction of the cost.
