Sweet 39s! At least EF, maybe AU. Good luck with your quest; don't give up! The 39d and the 50d will probably take a large number of boxes. I've only found 3 50d through over 400 boxes.

OK, I'll admit it....

I'm a very weak and impatient man...

As of this past friday morning, I only had 12 holes to fill.

For $10...at 10AM on Friday...I filled 3 of the holes. (I picked these up from my local dealer)





As of 8PM PST tonight and $28 later...after a few "buy-it-now" purchases via e-bay, I've managed to fill the remaining holes.


I've got less than $75 invested in the entire album. Now, all I need to do is start searching for "upgrades".

The nickels look great! I have the odds and ends of a possible collection. Now you guys are making me salivate at the thought of actually searching in earnest! I thought I was joining a hobby but this is a bit addictive at times it would seem. Kinda like my bargain hunting. There is a certain thrill there both in the hunt itself and also when you find it at a bargain or a steal of a deal.

Next week is a huge halves search if the bank teller told me the truth and ordered all my boxes of halves. I decided to obsess over the halves next week then get just a few boxes the next week as I have to have some time to fix a few things here at my old place before time to leave and also time to pack what I already have.

Now you are making me want some more nickels and wish I had been looking closer at the box I already searched a few weeks ago and kept more for my collection that I have now decided to start in earnest! Lol. Still need some more quarters to find my next ATB for my budding collection.

very impressive. This should be a motivation to anyone who wanted to try to fill an album from what you can still get.

We've all been there with the "impatience" part ! .....

And the "upgrading".....that's related to the O.C.D. of this hobby ....
Once you've built one from circulation.....then you can't rest until you build another one with all "high grades", Proofs, etc. etc.
Then you want to do this with ALL of the coinage !

Congrats and good luck ! ....

That looks like alot of fun! Congrats. That is alot of the fun of the hobby, as far as I am concern. Hunting, looking through change. I can relate to impatience!

After 20 years of casually looking, a forum member helped me finish my Jefferson collection.

There is no shame in that. Congratulations!
