What component of MS grading is the most important to YOU?
We all know that our host uses eye appeal, surface preservation, luster, and strike to grade mint-state coins. Is there one particular attribute that is the most important to you, all other things being equal? Are there certain things you can easily look past?
We can go down the rabbit-hole of technical vs. market grading, or get off on a side-tangent CAC discussion if you want, but what really makes a coin attractive to you? For example, from Bowers’ writings, he seems to really emphasize strike detail.
I’ll share my thoughts later.
