Without knowing anything about your area or situation, it's tough to say what you should expect, but my guess is that you'll have at least a few opportunities and different examples to choose from. Still, don't settle.
I live close to Denver and there are 10 local coin shows during the year. That and a monthly coin club where there are dealers too. There are several coin shops around me also.
Based upon this I'd think you'll be fine. Like I said, just be patient and wait for the right examples.
1880-S $1 MS66 PCGS. CAC
It seems you didn’t buy the first MS65 you came across. So it must be an eye-appealing coin, right? If you upgrade, don’t look at the label/slab, but try to get a better coin. I own at least 2 MS65 Morgans from the 80-82S era which I like much more than my MS66 Morgans.
I was looking at that last night. Beautiful Coin. I will be patient. Maybe throw some bids up on HA.
Yes, I looked at quite a few 81S's at shows and everywhere last year. The dealer who I bought it from had 7 others that I had to choose from. He actually helped me pick the best one. I brought it to my coin club and showed people I respect a lot and they all agree it is a solid 65.
Not quite toning I love.
I assumed you wanted to buy only if in-person. Expanding your horizons certainly changes things.
For a REALLY nice 66 of that date, I would go $200. Toning complicates that, as it can increase the price drastically, if the toning is very attractive.
I can get the price down to $250 with a coupon. If you are saying $200 that makes sense. I noticed Grey Sheet has it at $185 in a 66. CAC could bump it up to $220 I think (20% bump in price?).
I am not interested in DMPL's right now. Now that you have me thinking about it I could go DMPL later on if I find some GEMS.
