None of the coins. I started from scratch the second week of March. Guess that means I'm OCD! Just made it a "full time job" until I got it finished. The 1903S Barber Half was my first purchase on the 8th of March.

I've had a 7070 for ? years. Ummmmmm...it don't look like that. My 20c is barely discernible as a 20c. Some of my large cents are cleaned. Yuck. Many spots are empty!! I just need to make more money so that I can fill mine, or at least find the focus to shift my priorities to the 7070 for a while. Too many other temptations and albums.

Nice set. Since you are calling it volume 1, I am assuming you are going to upgrade some of them in the future>?

What a wonderful set. You're lucky to have the resources to complete something that high grade in a mere 4 months. I especially like the 2c piece and all of your capped bust coinage is amazing. Very nice.

Very nice!

I have been working on mine for about seventeen years now; nowhere near done.

I really thought your Indian cents 1859, '62 and '02 were nice in detail. Look great in the pictures. I also enjoyed the contrast you displayed in the photos of the 4 different Lincoln cents. Perhaps it's the lighting, but those really showed themselves off. Great job.

Ah, you were looking for suggestions... I'd say to get this set looking right, I'd go for uprades on your early halves and cents. But then again, you knew that. But, were it me, that's where I'd start! Both of your draped busts have great detail but seem to lack a bit in eye appeal. I've read in a couple of places that for early copper, it's important to get clean, problem free coins - and apparently this is more important for collectability than detail.

As for me, I prefer nice detail because, well, I can't always afford "problem free"! hehehe... but in terms of making your set look complete and consistent, that'd be where I start.

If you want to go for a consistent look, you might also step down on some of your newer stuff (your dimes, quarters, halves and dollars come to mind) - unless you're looking to make everything MS eventually, you might find those beauties you've got another home? Maybe start another set of some kind?

Again, a beautiful set! I hope my ideas are helpful and give you an idea of a good direction. If not, itwasn'tmenobodysawmedoityoucan'tproveanything.
