With inspiration from Ralph, Paralyse, and Wizardnyc, I'm thinking about starting a circulated Liberty nickel set.

When I say set, my goal would be to complete it. The 2 or 3 keys will not be easy. Budget is always a concern. We're not talking high grades here. I'm thinking F-VF all LIBERTY showing, no obvious cleaning, damage or details. (Not easy/probably not doable for the keys) Basically, a consistent looking set if possible.

Has anyone else had the same type goal for these nickels? Looking for your opinions.

It can be done with the keys in Fine for $1,500 with a bit of patience.

I was thinking it may cost a bit to build such a collection, if they are reasonably matched for condition.

I can't even think about V nickels right now!

I do plan on starting the Buffalo set after I'm more satisfied with my Jeffs. That may take a bit, though.

I have that set and decided to do it a little differently: every thing except the keys in VF-XF with the exception of the 1883 No Cents as MS64ish. I put them in a vintage Whitman Felt board. It was a really fun one to do. I would like to build another higher grade set one day.

You might want to rethink that . The Buffaloes will , as a set cost you more than a set of V-Nickels .

I may have to re-evaluate this!

I may need to do some creative financing.

Yes, get the painful one out of the way first.

Your Jefferson set would be a full-time job for me.

One like this?

I always thought (and I haven't done all the research) that Buffalo's would be more difficult to complete in decent (fine) condition.

Or you could set yourself a $30 goal. Buy them all from dealer's junk boxes in NICE G6 ish... cost you somewhere from 25c to $1 each - depending on the junk boxes.

You can do the entire set at a big coin show except for the 1885, 1886, and the D and S 1912s...

No, appreciate that though. My above goal is F to VF condition. It's just to easy to put a cull, AG or G set together that would look like heck! I need something more challenging that would look halfway decent when it's done.

Yes, that is the Whitman board I used. I have started a Buffalo nickel board but have a ways to go.

True, but I like the Buffs way more.
