Why not try for a complete set of Mercury dimes in all FSB. One set I don't think I'll ever finish is the Seated dimes. A great set to attempt is the Walking Liberty halves in all MS grades.

I was thinking of picking up an 1804 silver dollar, 1913 Liberty nickel and maybe a 1933 St Gaudens while I'm at it for my type set too! lol

Try to save a little money for a Brasher Doubloon and 1894-S Barber dime too.

I know we are in the US Classic forum, but I have to mention Eisenhower dollars. Short and relatively easy set.

I have a number of Morgans. Several CC Morgans and a 1903-O. :) Need to figure out a strategy to go after type coins. Start with a denomination? Start with a style (e.g. Barber coins)? Start with copper or silver? Gold is out of my price range except the smaller denominations ($1, $2.5, $5).

Well from a purist standpoint I don't know if the Ancients ever minted Gadolinium coins ...


Well that got a chuckle from me at least

I would have to agree with just carl when it comes to Walking Liberty Halves

A reasonably large collection of those, blast white, with good mint luster, in MS grades, would look spectacular.

The best set to start is the one you'll never be able to finish. I have lots of sets like that. And occasionally I start a new one.... for instance, the coins of 1794....this cost me an 1882-cc half eagle in similar condition....

thq, interesting approach. The basics of eye appeal and condition apply regardless of pursuing a date and mint set or a representative type coin. Either approach is going to be a journey. Resisting a purchase just to fill a hole applies either way.

For example, I've seen some really ugly looking 1957 Franklins in MS65. I have resisted as they won't fit in with the rest of the Franklins I have acquired.

I'll also chime in that ancients and world coins are a great breath of fresh air when one is feeling burnt out on US coins.

None of these would even come close to a high grade capped bust silver of just about any type

Alexander the Great ($50-100)


Nero ($150)


Trajan ($100)


Hadrian ($50)



With some thrifty spending, you can complete the entire dynasty of Constantine (Him, his father, mother, and stepmother, his wife, his four sons, and three of his five nephews) in high grade (XF/AU equivalent) for $200 or less.

Okay, shameless plug over

Finn235, you make a good point. It reminded me to see what this seller on eBay is up to:

https://www.ebay.com/sch/razorman2/m.html

I know him through buying old razors. He's written several books about them, but now he seems to be selling more old coins than razors. Based on my dealings with him about razors, I would have no reservations about buying old coins from him.

One of his current auctions is for a piece of eight, the old Spanish dollar.
