Just a curiosity question.
How do you decide when to group certain dates, and not others?
Seems to me the earliest dates should go year-by-year.
The later dates (Capped Bust and Seated Liberty) could be done in small groups.
37 years of SL coins with varieties and Mint Marks can get a bit boring.

I'll give 1794 its own day by starting NOW, with my beat up V-4 pocket piece:

I was hoping this would attract more of them jbuck. Oh well.

The thing I like most is the turkey-like eagle. We've had a few wild ones strutting through the neighborhood lately, gobbling away, and looking just like the bird on the coin with their big wings and scrawny bodies. I've seen as many as 13 of them flocked together. They seem to know that it's too early for us to be interested in eating them.

We would have to ask Moe, it is the same schedule he used in the first version...

That is correct and SD2017 used the same one Moe used previously. So the question, "How do you decide?" is better asked as "How did Moe decide?"

I'm guessing that the scarcer/more expensive years are combined to minimize the number of days without posts?

That would be a good guess, as it was what I have always assumed. I deferred to the experts.

1795 Flowing Hair






Sorry about the blurry reverse.
But I can't correct that; the coin is in a safe deposit box at a bank.
