Is PR58 better than PR60?
Was browsing auction sites and saw a 19th century gold coin in PR58. Lots of folks have an opinion that, all else being equal, an AU58 is going to have better eye appeal than a MS60 of the same date/denomination. While I understand that all else is never equal, and all coins have to be judged individually, on the balance is a PR58 going to look nicer than a PR60? I'm expecting a PR60 to have problems.
Disclaimer - have never seen either a PR58 or PR60 19th century gold coin in person, so I'm only judging from photos.
