I know you already decided - and beautiful coin by the way - but when building sets, especially copper where color comes into play, it's going to depend on the rest of your set. A 63RB is going to stand out in a set of all brown coins. A brown coin, even a high grade 64 or 65, will stand out amongst a red brown set. So, if you have mostly AU coins, I'd stick with that. If you are building a mostly uncirculated set, stick with those wherever you can afford to.

And you can always look for one in a lower grade later.

My strategy, right or wrong, is to collect MS63RB or MS64 RB on the late years of the series and then move down to AU for the older common dates and XF or even VF for the semi-key dates and likely F for 1877. So, the "set" will generally move from RB to chocolate as the dates get older.
Actively collecting US Type coins and Morgans. Thinking about LWC upgrades.

I think that is a good strategy. Did something similar with my 7070.

LOL. Sometimes you have to move on a coin when you see it.
This is true.

Never a right or wrong here, but for what it is worth I like the plan.
