I received some positive feedback on my post of my current Jefferson set and I decided to post another album for your amusement.


WARNING: The last page is depressing

















Thanks for viewing

Why do people throw the NIFC halves into circulation?

I think some of it comes from coin shops. I know sometimes
a shop will buy big collection that might have multiples
of BU and proof coins. More than they will ever sell.
So they buy the NIFC and proof coins for face, then dump
them at the banks.

Looks about in the same state as my album. I have a complete graded set and just recently picked up the dansco because I had a lot of extra halves laying around and they needed to go somewhere.

Looks like a good start. I've been working on this one from time to time for about 4 years now.

And sometimes people buy bags and rolls of NIFC dollars and half dollars, cherry pick the best and spend the rest. For example:

I actually found a 2010 D today. They page is no longer depressing

I buy all the proofs/silver proofs and the rest come from CRH. It is much more fun and rewarding that way.

That's a great way to do it. You should probably just go ahead and buy an album for silver proof quarters and dimes now too
it is a reasonable excuse to buy the whole proof set and not just the half, right?

Keep plugging away at it, you're making progress.

I went to a coin show today and got the last 3 Kennedy halves I needed. My collection is or was a bit easier though, I only did business strikes (no specials or proofs). I also stopped at 2001, because starting in 2002 the mint did not put the coins into circulation. No album, just using 2X2s and a binder.
