Great job Steven! Selecting choice full head SLQs is a real task. While selecting examples for my type set I encountered examples with great head strikes, but poor shields or reverses. The few that didn't often had weak luster or spotting. Assembling a full date set is much more of a challenge! We were tasked with assembling a full set (Date and Mint) of SLQs for a client. That project started 3 years prior to me joining the shop I currently work at, and only ended 2 years ago. My only I suppose, regret, regarding that set is that the client was willing to make compromises when it came to strikes or eye appeal, even though we advised against it.

Grape - Such wise advice and insight! Yes, as I noted, it seems like every one of the SLQ business strikes has some issue regarding eye appeal. While compromises may have to be made, I've learned to be patient and only accept a compromise when the pops in the grades I want are very few, AND where the positive attributes of a coins eye appeal FAR outweigh the disadvantage(s)! It's not like ordering a car, where we can get everything we want when it's a "Limited Edition"!

This in my opinion is the only correct approach. This doesn't only apply to high end coins either. I've purchased some great details coins in the past. For clients and customers on a budget, sometimes they prefer an AU Details Scratched over a F-12 Straight, and I don't blame them for it so long as the positive (extra meat on the coin) outweighs the negative (the scratch). Though generally speaking I advise against most compromises as I feel compromising will often lead to buyers remorse and a want to upgrade. I'm dealing with that right now regarding my type set actually, the pair of Liberty Head Nickels I selected are nice, but I know I could have done much better, and will certainly upgrade them at some point in the future.

Grape - I fully agree 110% on EACH of the wise points you make!

You should write a book, and with your experience in the shop, you've probably seen everything!!!!! The best way to learn is from mistakes, and it's always nice for the person if they can learn from mistakes of others. Admittedly, I've made more than my fair share of mistakes over the years, and when I mentor other collectors, I share those mistakes with them so they can hopefully avoid making those same errors. I call the cost of my mistakes "tuition"!

Great coins. It's hard to find strikes like that.

I bought this key earlier this year. As nice as the coin looks in the photos, despite today's hi-res photo technology, it doesn't even come close to capturing the blazing luster.

Oh boy, that 16-fh one don't see every day, and for those wondering what a fh goes for according to PCGS is around 25 grand in MS-64, though the cac sticker probably ups the value some .

You're sharp! Despite the CAC sticker, and this being one of the more attractive of the 26 1916 MS64FH with a CAC, I paid $24,850. This is about the most I've ever paid for the very few coins I've paid more than $10K for.
