Up until my retirement I was collecting more expensive coins over 600.00 in all slabs with very little raw buying. Most of my certified is cac. Now I have a lower monthly budget and have gravitated to primarily raw. I have several sets ongoing such as buff nickels, large cents, cwt / store cards and more. It is a refreshing change. I'm with Coinfrog - go with the flow!

Collecting Raw Copper

I am assembling the large cent middle board 1816 to 1839. I am a beginner focusing on pieces that are F12 to VF20. I was wondering how seasoned copper collectors view slabbed coins in light of the more strict EAC grading standards. Do they avoid slabs? I would imagine that purchasing a slab coin and cracking it out would rarely work out due the price associated with the looser grade. Any thoughts will be greatly appreciated!

I have learned over the years is to be opportunistic. If you are working on a single collection and are being selective (which you should be), you may not make a purchase at a show at all. If working multiple collections then you can switch gears and may find something suitable for that collection. This weekend I went to the VNA show in Fredericksburg Va looking for Buffalo nickels but came home with 3 nice Civil war tokens.

Nice find. You have to wonder what collections that coin was a part of prior to Mr Wolfe acquiring it. It so cool seeing the envelope from the old school collecting method. Nice collector grade with a nice planchet. F12 is extremely conservative.
