I was lucky when I started mine. A member was selling about a dozen coins he had upgraded in his album. I purchased them from him. Those, plus what I had in my possession, gave me a nice jumpstart. Now I just basically choose a hole at random, do some reading up on the piece, then figure out what grade I'm willing to budget for.

I agree. I feel the same way that it's pretty overwhelming. So many holes. I just keep telling myself,"One at a time... One at a time." Eventually it'll be,"One left to go! One left to go!"

I would pick a set, a budget, a grade, and or a price.

For instance I am doing Morgans and the best coin and grade I can get for under $500 for each year and mint mark combination. So it might be a MS61 for one and a MS66 for another. I am doing the same with a few other series, like the Barber dime, but in that case it is $60 limit.

I am also collecting modern Silver Eagles and all those are MS70 regardless of price so I going by grade not price in that c ASE

Since I already have a thread on starting a type set collection going, I will only update progress and ask questions there.

Thanks!

Like I said:

txgolfer56- Why do you have two threads going for the same subject?
