Sounds like there's a lot of stuff you want to collect. I would say go out and buy all the simple Whitman albums for the pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters and just start filling up holes from coins you get in circulation. Then after a while you'll figure out which ones you're not going to find in circulation and you can start buying those from dealers.

This is the way I started and I think most people start.

Thanks jpsned!

I actually jumped the gun on supplies and bought them first, maybe not the brightest idea. I have Mylar 2x2 flips; 2x2 flip pages from BCW and then Uni-Keep Binders to store those in. My biggest issues almost all my pages are empty!...haha

For modern coins, you might want to take a look at mint sets and proof sets. Even if you just want to collect quarters, you may find that the incremental cost of getting a set with all the coins is worthwhile to you.

Most modern mint and proof sets are readily available at prices less than the original mint issue price as well.

If you go this route though, you have to keep in mind that if you want a so called "complete" set that there are some coins that weren't included in the mint and proof sets. For example, since 2012 the Mint has been issuing S mint BU quarters that are only available in rolls and bags. There are other NIFCs as well.

Most important thing is to have fun at whatever route you decide to take

clad proof and silver proof, are they the San Francisco Mint or are they made in Philadelphia & Denver as well?


For more current coins, all proofs are made at the San Francisco Mint. This wasn't always the case, though as you go further back. For State and ATB Quarters, the proofs are all S-mint.

A clad proof quarter has the same composition as normal circulating quarters of our day: a copper core between two layers of copper-nickel (called cladding). Silver proofs for these series are what's called "coin silver" which is 90% silver and 10% copper.

If you are interested in filling large numbers of coins, then I have used 'Daves Collectibles" on eBay many times and have been very happy.

They have "coin runs" and full 'series sets' that you can buy for large numbers of date ranges.

Here is there link:

They also have tons of proof sets as well.

When putting together a State Quarter set, I used them quite often.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Michael

Coin shows...

Even at smaller shows, there will be a dealer or several with binders of 2x2s of "modern" coins. Dealers buy rolls of them and put them in 2x2s for people doing date sets.

with the Dave's Coins suggestion. Great for jump-starting a collection and reasonably priced.

I've purchased several times from Dave's on eBay and my expectations are consistently met. His stock level is tremendous and combined shipping works wonders.

I also recommend JT Stanton for the same reasons:

Why don't you get a folder and start collecting the state and ATB Quarters from circulation. It would be enjoyable and you go a little crazy thing to complete it. You can get rolls from the bank and search. I still cannot come across a WV-D.
