Cherry-picked this off eBay for $16.

Everything looks like a match including mint mark location and the die crack in the hair is there.

These are quite rare in mint state and go for nice prices at auction. I am considering slabbing this one at some point. Thanks for taking a look!

Wow what an amazing coin, spectacular job!

What's your strategy with cherrypicking these?

Also congrats of 4000 posts!

Thanks! Strategy, for cherry-picking this particular variety, or just cherry-picking varieties in general?

I would say both, but mainly picking varieties in general. I have a hard time cherrypicking in general when it comes to varieties.

Well, on eBay I set my sights on one date/mint mark and hunt for any varieties I want for that date/mint combo until I run out of search results or find a variety I'm looking for. I know, a little time consuming. I'm sure there are much better ways to cherry-pick online but this has worked for me. If you want me to clarify anything or would like me to offer any advice let me know. I'm no expert or pro but I know some stuff.

Thanks a lot! I see you have your email closed off so I'll just ask for some clarification here if you don't mind.

When I attempt to do such things, I usually end up with either crappy photos, or multiple coins being sold at once. Any idea how to get around this or something specific to look for?

Also what would be a good starting point? What's an easy thing to cherrypick (even if it isn't that valuable) just to help get me started, as practice in a sense?

Thanks a lot!

If I zoom in on a picture and all I can see are blurry pixelated images of what I want to see, I pass it by. By multiple coins, you mean where there are more than one available, and you might not receive the one in the picture? I find that a lot. If I won't receive the coin pictured, I move on. I always check the description to see if it says I will receive the coin pictured or not. If not, I will contact the seller and ask. I hope that all made sense.

As for varieties you can "easily cherry-pick", you can try 1946 half dollar DDR FS-801, 1864 Indian Head cent Re-punched dates (there are many), Wheat cent DDRs as they are easily passed by, and 1954 proof dime FS-101. There are surely more and if I think of any I will let you know. 1954 proof dime FS-101 is very easy to identify by the die chip below the four in the date:

Brilliant, thanks for the help. And yes by multiple coins I mean multiple for sale. Thanks, that makes sense!

I will try to practice with those. Thanks again, seriously, this is a huge help!

EDIT: Do you mainly focus on auctions or BIN when it comes to cherrypicking?

BIN. With auctions there is always a chance that others will notice the variety, which happens quite often to me. I've lost quite a few 1888 O $1 hot lips that way. If you find anything, let me know!

Thanks! Sounds great, I'll certainly let you know!

One final question, what site should I use to look at the RPD IHCs?

1864 RPDs (and other varieties for that date):

Do you have the cherry pickers guides? If not I HIGHLY recommend you get them. They are very useful and the varieties included are all recognized by PCGS NGC and ANACS.

The website which is linked above includes all Indian Head cent dates and Flying Eagle cents.

Thanks! No I do not have it but I am going to get it.

Volume 5 Edition 1 right?

Are RPDs actually valuable? How much does it increase the price of a 1864 IHC? As that date is already a decent bit pricey, at least for me that has a limited budget.

I completely understand, I have a budget of under $25 a coin. Some of the 1864 varieties are valuable while others aren't as much. RPD-001 and 002 are the best for that date IMO and they will bring a premium over the regular coin. A snow-1 in G-06 just sold for $52 recently. I recommend checking eBay sold listings to get an accurate value idea.

I own sixth edition volume 1 and fifth edition volume 2. Those give me all varieties from Flying Eagle cents to gold, bullion and commemorative coins. The 6th edition has Cents to Nickels and The fifth edition has dimes to gold coins.

Alright sounds good, I'll try to keep practicing. I just went through all the 1954 proof dime listings. Found one with the die chip, however it was one of those listings where there are multiple available so I ignored it. Sounds good I'll do that! I've noticed there are also die breaks/cracks listed as well on the IHCs. Are these worth buying if I find one? I've already found one but I'm unsure whether it's worth buying.

Alright cool! I'll look into that, thanks!

The die cracks aren't something I would purchase for a premium as it isn't a die variety. It is a die event. Others may pay a small premium for them but I doubt it would be much more than a regular coin. A major die break (cud) is something that is very popular and are usually rare as they get noticed quickly and pulled from striking. Those will bring strong premiums over a normal coin.
