Poll Question
So as many of you already know, I've been doing more flipping over the last few months. I've gotten better at locating slds with original surfaces.

From email exchanges and comments, I know many of you are seeking a Seated dollar for your type sets with original surfaces.

So what price points are you looking for?

Poll Choices
  $100 - $200
  $200 - $300
  $300 - $400
  $400 - $500
  $500 - $600
  $600 - $700
  $700 - $800
  $800 - $900
  $1,000 or higher

When I bought both examples for my graded type set I wanted original xf40 pieces. Each PCGS xf40 piece ran between $500-$550.

FIRST I go for a coin that appeals to me.
That generally means a coin in XF or better.
THEN I look at the price.
That means I'm trying to find a balance between appearance and cost.

For my type set it turned out as follows:
1846-No Motto-XF45
1872-Motto-AU50
Describe it as if there were no picture.

I think too much depends on your pocketbook. Not everyone can afford higher grade examples.

I haven't been looking. I bought an SL half a while back and that kind of satisfied me as far as type. There's so much nice stuff to collect, I guess I have to draw the line somewhere.

So, what would be a FMV price for an original, VF to AU, SLD these days?

It depends on the year. Common dates (which you really can't call them common because they are still scarce... so common in terms of the sld universe) are the 42's 46's 47's 59-O's, 60-O's 70's and 71's.

And Vf- AU is to broad of a range

I understand your question. The series has such vast price differences between the "common date" and the rare that the majority of collectors only care to find one of the easier dates in a grade they can afford.

Quite frequently the SLDs are the last empty holes to fill.

But since there are so few SLD full set collectors you can often get a slightly better date for very little more.

Even more so than for most type, beauty is essential, not just the grade.

I would much rather have an original VF with light natural tone and few bag marks than a "market acceptable" cleaned and dented low AU, even at the same price.

Across the whole series something like 350ish to several hundred thousand dollars

The first one I was really satisfied with was an 1841 in VF, back when it was a $175 coin. Since then, I've been more interested in getting lower mintage but not rare SLD's, like the 1859-S, 1870-CC, 1853 and 1865. If an 1872-S showed up in original F I'd be kind of interested at the $500 level, but probably not a buyer.

I went with $600-$700. Anything less than that probably doesn't have eye appeal in my desired grade, though I'll probably end up paying a bit more when I finally see one I decide I want.

I voted $300 to $400, but I can see myself pushing that up a little if the right coin came along.

I have never seen anything below $300 that I would be happy with, but that is not to say they do not exist. Maybe.

I was lucky enough to get mine for my 7070 for the $200-300 range but that was probably close to 10 years ago. The same coins are probably $400+ now it seems.

I picked $400-500 range, and is what I'd paid for my 7070 also.
