I believe that most look for...

1942/1
1942/1-D
1952 super bird
1995 DDO
?


Do you have 3-5 that you always scan for?

If you need references, I can provide them.

I am always interested in key date coins, double dies, New Orleans gold, US Error Notes and 1928 US Currency. PM and let's make a deal.

My favorite cherrypick was an accidental one...by my father in the 70s. Bought an 1874 20$ gold piece from his great aunt. Kept it for 6 years, got into coins and figured out that it was actually a proof!

Don't think this is the most popular, but I would say that a 20$ gold piece Proof cherry pick is among the most sought after.

I was looking through the slabbed coins of a major dealer about 10 yrs ago and an NGC MS63 1850 half caught my eye because it's a nice date in decent unc. You see a lot
of early seated coins looking somewhat PL under heavy toning (ie little luster). This coin was no exception. It was a decent coin but the price was strong enough to eliminate
further consideration. Next time I saw the coin it was in a Proof 63 holder. It never crossed my mind that the coin could be a proof.

Although not among the most sought after, I check the legions of 1861 quarter eagles offered on ebay for these.

1916 DDO Buffalo nickel. This is one you can identify without the date being visible if you know what you're looking for.

Also, 1918/7 Buffalo nickel. It's not obvious to the untrained eye, but it's worth a fortune.

The 1892-O micro O half is a good one. Three legged buffalos can still be found, too. Various overdates, double dies, etc.

IMO the best cherrypicks for the morgan series
1900 o/cc
and any 1880 over 79 overdates (single or both digits) from all mints

1901 DDR Morgan. Easy to see with the naked eye, scarce enough to be worth your while, mainstream enough to be included in most price lists (i.e. Redbook, Coin Values, etc.). I've picked two off of Ebay in the past two years...

I also regularly scan for the 1890 CC "Tailbar" Morgan, of which I've found many and the 1916 DDO Buffalo, of which I've found zilch...

Did either grade? I remember the AU details one you found was quite a coin save for a few hairlines.

I believe; 1) 3-legged buff. 2) 1995 double-die cent 3) 1970 no "s" proof set 4) Superbird Quarter 5) Hot lips Morgan dollar It's a toss up,what I rather find. #3 or #5.

The 2009p Lincoln cent wddr-006 (skeleton finger) with the late stage large die crack obverse and reverse. It's a modern rarity!

Although I doubt that many (if any) are left in the wild I suspect that every 1955 cent is at least checked.

Yeah, the AU details one could have been REALLY nice without those obverse hairlines. It is in a PCGS Genuine AU details slab. The other one I found a couple months ago and should grade VF30 or 35. It will go in as soon as I have 8 raw coins to fill out my coupon submission...

I know that plenty of folks check their worn, dateless type I SLQs, looking for that elusive '16.

I see the 1946DDR WLH as good cherry pick- top five? Not likely

1888-o hotlips Morgan followed by the 1901DDR shifted eagle

1937-d 3 Legged Buff

I would list the 1955 DDO Lincoln and the 1972- but those just do not seem to be cherry picked
