Numismatist's are an interesting group

Coins-United States | LNCS

As a group, coin collectors have some interesting quirks. Take the 1922 "Plain" Denver cent. Since no cents were minted in Philadelphia, there is a premium for the 1922 Denver cents that had the mint mark removed prior to minting. The money paid for these is very substantial when compared to a well struck 1922-D cent. For the last 20 years or so, people are even paying a premium for 1922 Weak D cents. (as graded by the third party grading services).Now ask yourself: Would you pay a premium for a 1914-D cent with a very weak mint-mark? How about a premium for a 1909-S VDB cent with weak "VDB" initials?I suspect that you would not only not pay a premium, but only purchase if the price was discounted and even then you may avoid the coin until a better one comes along.The same sort of die extending procedures led to the 1937-D 3-legged Buffalo nickel and they also demand quite a premium.Why is it that we will pay a huge premium for certain weak struck coins and avoid entirely others?
