Collects82- I knew it wouldn't take long before someone said something in that vein.
I've found a multitude of the lower value varieties, and due to time constraints and where I am right now, I feel like the ones with a bit of a premium are more worth it.
My goal isn't to come off snarky here, please don't take it as such.
One hand you are looking for a budget copy of a resource to do your job, cause the Cherry Picker's Guide is "too expensive". But on the other hand selling what you have found, even though they might only be a stack of $5 coins is "not worth the time." As you have found a few 1938 D/D and D/S, that should cover most of the book if you bothered to sell them, no?
I am working on a set of Snow varieties for the 1882 Indian cents
and I always appreciate a buffalo variety. For the 1882, some rather obscure stuff like misplaced dates in the denticles. But unless the coin itself is AU/BU, the obscure varieties don't drive much premiums to $50+. It's not they aren't rare or cool, just VERY few buyers propping up prices. Supply and demand do wonky things to an arbitrary price. In 10 years, you might regret tossing a bunch of those 2022 low values varieties with little guarantee you found many of what is currently of a $50+ value, and those varieties currently with demand might loose it too.
Enjoy the hobby :)
