Question about details coins that make you scratch your head
For some reason this seller's coins have the look I really like. Unfortunately for me, they all have a price I do not like. I have bought straight graded coins from this seller, but I don't buy detailed graded coins because I fear that when my wife goes to sell my coins, a details grade, deserved or not, will give the buyer the ability to say they are worth only melt due to the grader's opinion on the slab.
My question has to do with the detailes graded coins this dealer occasionally lists, usually at the price they would sell for if straight graded. I still like the look of the coins, and obviously the grader is seeing something that I don't because I wish all of my gold looked this nice with this same orange luster.
Do sellers like this just have a bad rep with the graders and that is why so many of his coins end up in details holders?
Or does this seller just look for really nice coins already in details holders that he can list and sell?
Here are some examples of some very nice looking gold that the graders did not like:
