Here are pics of my finally completed Liberty nickel Set. Some obvious upgrades required...excluding the key dates. My first complete set. Now back to my 7070.

My favorite for sentimental reasons is the 1883 n/c because it was the first nice coin I could afford back when I was 7 in 1973.



Not the nicest grade.

The 1909 has the most original luster.

All the coins were raw.

It's always a pretty cool accomplishment to complete a set. Some sets are extremely difficult, especially where some of the coins are almost always slabbed and would have to be broken out to actually put it into a set.

But, you're not done yet! It looks like there's a handful of coins (some of which are fairly common) that should be easy to upgrade for a bit more quality and eye appeal. Even the key date ones you might want to consider upgrading to a higher grade (but when you can afford it, of course!).

Good job!

Sit back and admire your fine accomplishment.
And as you do, start thinking about your next goal.
Describe it as if there were no picture.

Absolutely! First step is to replace 2 cleaned coins ( what did I know back when I was 11; the 1893 and the 1906. Also, upgrade the 1895 to at least a high XF and replace the 1891.

Next, I want all 1900s to be AU. Not hard, but will take time. Most are soooo overpriced.

Also, acquire a proof... kept slabbed.
