I have never purchased full sets of coins. I like putting my own coins together, gives me the option of what grades I want, color, etc. Like mention above if you buy a full set you really don't know what your getting. I hand pick with great scrutiny every coin in my albums.

Plagiarism and cutting and pasting is easy! Thanks T-BOP!

I didn't read through all the posts, however, I would buy modern sets that are complete because, let's face it, they aren't worth THAT much. And I would tend to put together my own sets of older coins. I might still buy a set to cherry pick and then pass off the rest. If I can buy a set of silver quarters for x amount of money, cherry pick it and then sell it for the same amount, it's like getting free coins!

I would have never started a high grade Lincoln set if I had started with the key dates. I just incrementally started upgrading going backwards from the later dates until I got to the point where I said "might as well try to finish it out".


Yeah, I never start with the keys. For me, it's natural for the keys to be the LAST coins obtained.

Dealers love to buy full sets. They know they can get them for a decent price and they well know selling each coin will get them the biggest return.
