    Some coins certainly do look better in their original box /case but as already mentioned storage, viewing and reduced damage risk are the benefits of of graded coins. The main problem associated with buying graded coins are the excessive premiums some sellers are loading on to 70 grade coins which of course is another reason for some people to grade.
    Personally i look at my coins with the naked eye and not with  5 x magnification and i can't tell the difference between most 69's and 70's, sometimes you can't see the difference with magnification so for me a 69 grade coin is perfect enough. Of course it is pleasing to get a 70 when grading coins from raw for your collection but then you are not paying the OTT premiums.

    Yes booking in advance is the key to getting decent prices, i normally get Staffordshire to London for £16 return but normally you can only travel on the specific trains that you have booked for that price. As previously said there are many tricks to get cheaper tickets, i recently went to a coin auction in Sheffield and purchased a Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket which is a type of day rover ticket, the trip cost me £20 instead of the best other fare available on that day of £45. And before anyone comments i know that Sheffield is in Yorkshire and not Derbyshire but the ticket allows travel to Sheffield

    It's possible that  the seller could be  using mates or colleagues to " bid up " the prices on these coins, the bidding patterns and buyer profiles are unusual.
