    I'm having some difficulty finding quality examples in XF or AU for certain key dates. So, I'm considering also looking for VF35 examples to broaden the available coins. I was able to find a nice quality VF35 for 1877. Thinking of doing the same for other key dates.

    Of course, waiting to find that problem free XF or AU coin to come along may be a better approach.

    Locating quality examples in xf40 or xf45. Going up into AU and they tend to be better quality as expected but get pricey per my budget.

    Angel Dee's specializes in small cents.
    That's where I completed my FE and IHC set.
    They pretty much stick to MS coins.

    I'm familiar with Rick Snow, Angel Dee and The Penny Lady. I posted wants with them. I've also been perusing Ebay, CollectorsCorner, Heritage Auctions and a few other places. I've actually bought from all three dealers above for various coins. I found one of the key dates by checking ebay and then seeing if the ebay seller had their own website to compare prices. Saved some money buying from the dealer's website vs ebay. I should have jumped on a Heritage auction for a certain date. Could have had a good savings over dealers. Will keep that in mind for the future. I just hate paying sales tax on top of the buyer's premium.

    I've got a full MS set of FE's and IHC's thanks to Angel Dee's. That does NOT include any of the Red Book listed errors.

    But if you still get it cheaper than a dealer it is worth it. :) Just figure it into your bid price. :) And for a quality VF35 to XF45 a little extra may not hurt. Before I sold most of my IHC's, it took me a long time to find a coin graded and priced like I wanted for the 1877. To me a lot of the VF's were really F in my mind.
