The Whitman book still has holes for 1955s 1954 1953s 1952s 1951s 1949s 1946s 1945s 1942s. Is it possible to fill all of them in MS condition for 14 dollars?
If not, what is the best route to buy these coins? I plan to buy them over time whenever I have some money on ebay bucks.

Your best bet is to look for lots for sale that have most of the coins you want and then maybe you can trade extras for what's left. I did a search on eBay for "S BU Lot" and saw a couple of options.

I will say that the 42-S was tough for me in BU. I think I spent $14 for it alone. Many of the other are do-able for $1-2 per coin but you need to buy them together or shipping will kill you.

Thanks. Ken.
I just purchased this
http://www.ebay.com/itm/400936185271
I have two Whitman books. I guess that I just upgrade one of my Whitman book from 1941 to 1951 to BU. I have 3 1943 steeler sets in BUs. I guess that 1950 pennies are not difficult to fill and I have to wait next round of purchase.

I agree with KenKat. Some of those pics in that auction are blurry, but from what I see, they look pretty good, especially for the price.

If those turn out to be in nice condition, I think you did well.

Good lead KenKat. Nice additions for a reasonable price. This forum should consider having some of old folks contribute much duplicated inventory to newer collectors. I wouldn't mind donating a few pounds of stuff for newer collectors. Do we have anything like that?

Yup, that was for sure one of the listings I saw! That's a nice lot for that price - good pickup and the eBay bucks makes it all the better.

p.s. I started my Lincoln collection with brown circulated coins and then went down the same BU upgrade path that you are going down. There are some bargains out there if you are patient and it's a great set to build.

Awesome use of your eBay Bucks.

I used my last certificate to buy a Macro Converter lens for my camera to take better pix of my coins.

Wow, great idea mdrosophila! I got my email from ebay the other day saying that I have $29 ebay buck avail. Wasnt sure what to spend them on, but filling a few holes in my Lincoln set sounds like a great idea. anyone know of really good ebay sellers for Lincoln cents. looking for some gembu's from late 40's through the 50's if anyone has any favorite sellers...
