I found this great video by Bill Ecberg from Heritage that discusses how to collect a type set of Half Cents. its extremely interesting and has history of the development of the Half Cents, how hubs and dies were used, the different hubs and dies from 1793 through 1857 and what it takes to collect a type set of these unique coins. I wasn't sure the appropriate forum or if we can post similar links that provides this type of information to help us learn about our hobby

I think classic might be the better forum, but there is no rule against putting a video like this, in fact it's encouraged. Just use the[.youtube] tags to embed the video and you should be fine. Now, I'm off to watch the video.

I just watched the video because I'm a type set collector.
My type set is based on the NGC Registry Type Set - 1793-1964.

Turns out I have four of the half set types mentioned in the video and four is all that NGC included.

1793 - F-12
1795 - Lettered Edge with Pole - XF-40
1806 - AU-58 BN
1834 - AU 58

I'll have to consider whether I'll include the missing four.
It's very tempting.

Describe it as if there were no picture.

I saw the presentation in person. I don't agree with Bill in all aspects but it does give you food for thought.
