It seems to be an easy one to find in lower grades jbuck, or in AU with crappy surfaces and strikes. A nice, well struck BU is seeming impossible, granted I have quite a while to look so no real rush. Though I think it's a really cool type coin.

Yes, the ones with a face for radio are easy to find. Ten years ago I found one that was just over my budget, but I let it go. I spent the next five years only seeing low, low grade and high grade. Nothing in my sweet spot. I finally filled the hole five years ago.

MOR.

Middle of the Road. I want my coin to have history, but not too much.

Here is my 1875-S Twenty Cents. She looks way better in hand. The smartphone camera I had in 2014 was terrible.

Nice example jbuck. I'm going for a wow factor with my set. I'm trying to do everything seated and forward BU. Maybe a few capped busts in UNC if they're reasonably priced.

Wow, you have quite the collection started!

I really like your Draped Bust Half, that's exactly how you want a 200+ year old silver coin to look!

You have no idea how hard they are to find looking like this. I've gone through every major listing house (eBay, HA, GC, DLRC, ect) and been unable to find one like it on a different denomination.

Good luck trying to find an attractive Seated dollar. There's a lot of details SLDs in straight grade holders.

Unfortunately that has been a struggle. I think I'll probably do my Trade dollar before seated. I also want to upgrade my morgan to a MS67 so I'm budgeting that out right now.

Beautiful coins for sure love your set it's the smaller moves getting ready for our sets to be assembled that piques my attention. You sure do have an incredible set of coins there I like your approach and the fact they are slabbed keep up the killer work assembling my set along the same lines though with key dates or errors making up my collection.

@johnny Thanks I like them as well. The bust half was a hard find.

@muddyknuckles, thanks. I just nailed down my next piece. I should have it in about a week. Nice coin, but very expensive.
