After looking at JBuck's type set http://goccf.com/t/82365 I came to the realization that I could (almost) complete a vastly cheaper one.... So I picked up the Whitman 20/21st century type set album and went crazy. I'm currently missing 8 coins but I have 5 on order and the other 3 are reasonable as long as I don't go MS state (which I wasn't planning to do), majority of coins came from 2 mint sets 1967 Proof set and 1999 Uncirculated set (actually 3 as I forgot that Sacajawea only came out in 2000 and I had removed the NJ quarter from 1999).

So here is my vastly cheaper not Dando 7070 type set. I'm very happy and its all Jbuck's fault ;)

I have an order:
Liberty Head Nickel
Territorial quarter (silver proof)
1964 Kennedy 50 Cent
1976 Kennedy 50 Cent
Morgan dollar

After getting the missing 3, which shouldn't be too long, I wasn't planning in seated or bust, well not at this time. My next goal is completing the IHC as I'm only missing the key dates (1909 s and 1877). After that I have no real goals. Kenkat has the LWC in BU, I thought about doing that but the teen LWC really go up in price. Maybe I'll just collect Silver Eagles for bullion.

Just reread my original post, it's confusing as I said I have 6 holes but there are 8 holes. That's because I have 2 coins not in the set, I want to get replacements. But the correct number is 8 coins. A few replacements on order and missing 3 (barber quarter, Standing quarter and barber 50 cent)

Looks like you're off to a great start!

Be careful when putting a type set together, they're addicting. Before you know it, you'll be starting a 7070 too!
Sets in progress... Mercury dimes, Washington quarters, 7070 Type Set, WLH Short Set

I didn't even want to put in the Presidential dollars. I mean we went from UGLY (the Ike) to Uglier ( SBA) and then gold colored old man on coins. I want a beautiful women on a coin, not ugly old man ;)

Jbuck,

Just so you know I actually went out and got a (YUCK) 1971 S silver proof Ike to put in the album... I actually paid for an Ike, I feel really bad... But my Ike was kind of sad.. well all Ikes are kind of sad ;) But I figured since he is Silver, he might not be as sad looking and its almost, possibly, hmmmm not likely. Still sad..

Not sure if I want to , , , , , or this one.

Silliness aside, Well done!

Next step is to get an a Ike lbum and fill it up.

Now I'm wondering which of the OP album's types I actually don't have - and which I do...

...OK, here's a list.


Have in my 7070:

Indian Head cent
Wheat cent
Steel cent
Memorial cent (copper)
V nickel
Buffalo nickel
War nickel
Mercury dime
Roosevelt dime (silver)
Barber quarter
Standing Liberty quarter
Washington quarter (silver)
Washington quarter (clad)
Bicentennial quarter
State Quarter
Barber half
Walking Liberty half
Franklin half
Kennedy half (silver, 1964)
Kennedy half (clad, post-1971)
Bicentennial half
Morgan dollar
Peace dollar
Eisenhower dollar
Bicentennial dollar
SBA dollar

Definitely have, not in my 7070 due to lack of spaces to put them:

Memorial cent (zinc)
Bicentennial cent
Westward Journey nickel
ATB Quarter
Presidential dollar
Native American dollar

Definitely have, but not currently in my 7070, despite spaces waiting for them:

Jefferson nickel (1938-2003) - too many of this very common type to choose from
Barber dime - misplaced my example, which will be placed in my 7070 when I find it
Roosevelt dime (clad) - too many of this very common type to choose from
Sacagawea dollar - misplaced my example, which will be placed in my 7070 when I find it

Probably have, but not actually sure:

Shield cent
Jefferson nickel (post-2006)


That leaves two relatively certain gaps - the territory quarter (which I might actually have, but I don't recall ever getting one), and the silver-clad Kennedy half (which I definitely don't have).

Obviously, neither would be particularly complicated, or particularly expensive, to acquire.


...Alas, while I've made some progress with the later 19th century cents and nickels, I have yet to acquire any Seated or Bust coinage (the examples I have seen were well over my budget), which means that I'm only about halfway done on the actual 7070 set (which features a very large amount of spaces for such types).

I looked at the Dansco 7070 set and there are just so many coins that are very costly and if I wanted them in BU crazy priced. I pretty much have all the ones I am missing on order so I'll complete this one very quickly. I have a few I may upgrade to BU/Proof but anything expensive (>$100) needs to wait till I finish the IHC set.

Alright... I know its only been a few days since I posted the album but...

I had an envelope with foreign currency and I don't collect foreign currency so it was time to give it a good home. With the trade I was able to update a few not in MS coins with MS and actually got much more value from the currency than I expected. What I like about this set is that you can get most of the coins in MS for not a lot of money. First up was an MS War Nickel.



I also picked up a Proof SBA and a Proof Washington President coin. These aren't my favorite coins (I mean they aren't as bad as an Ike Jbuck ), but at least in proof they are almost OK



I also got a Morgan. Now Morgans are beautiful!



Finished the dollar page.
