All of the coins you want tend to be available on eBay at most times, with the exception of 1878 VAM 14.11. Simply locating one of those for sale can easily take years, and if one turns up in an auction you will have an enormous amount of competition.

The 1896, 1900 and 1902 Micro-Os are basically never available for sale in PCGS holders.
When in doubt... don't.

Hopefully my 1878CC VAM 24A PCGS XF40 with a VSS sticker will show up soon for sale on GC
(they've had it for well over a month and assigned it a lot number but not yet an auction date, will edit this post when listed)

EDIT: Finally posted. Lot ends 9/3. Low starting bid

But even all the micro o’s are available if you just want an example raw or certified by less known grading services
Good luck on the 14.11
