Hi all! When type collecting, what's your opinion on going for better-dates vs common ones?
Hi everyone! Long time no see. Hope you are all doing well! So I go to F.U.N. when it is my hometown of Orlando and I usually go just to browse and learn. (I have two kids now and don't have the funds or time to devote much to the hobby these days.) I might pick up one or two coins, but I'm not working on anything too specific at the moment. I'm a type guy and I have a TON of unfilled holes lol.
I enjoy rarity over condition and I like to take the show as an opportunity to look at series or coins I may be interested in the future but I also hear people say "Don't' overpay for better-date type because you won't recoup it later."
I know, I know: "Buy what you like and don't worry about it."
I get it. But in your experience, does having better-date type help when going to sell, or are you better off buying high-condition, high-pop coins for type?
