I think that the problem with the Barbers (nickels, dimes, quarter, halves) is that they are all the same. If I'm going to collect four different denominations, I'd like to have a little variety in the designs.

Of all the Barbers the nickel and dime are the least objectionable. They aren't ugly, a Liberty nickel in AU/MS is pretty nice. Not Mercury dime nice though. I don't know why the whole Barber series look alike, I'm pretty certain Barber could have created different designs.

For those critiquing the Morgans, please note that no one mentioned Morgan's as a top 10 pretty coin. When I was looking at completing a silver dollar set I went with Peace dollars as they are prettier to me (and also doable as a complete set)

We need to bring back the golden age of coins! The Mercury dimes, the standing liberty, walking liberty, IHC and flying eagle! And the Peace dollars and bison nickels!

I agree but why not the Franklin half? Got to remember all our past presidents? Ooopps, wait. He never even ran for that. I wonder if he did would we still have had a coin with him on it? It really is a shame our government refuses to listen to how many people want those old coins back.

Basebal I agree a circulated Morgan gets ugly quickly but I'm comparing MS to MS, an SBA in proof doesn't look terrible neither does a proof Ike (it's bad but not Ben bad) but for the general series they aren't Walking Liberties or ASE.


ASEs ruined walkers for me. No matter how pretty a design is I really dislike them being reused. The walker reverse is a million times better though.

The big problem is just that nice ones are expensive. They were a work horse during their period, all the cheap ones definitely look their age.

That's just how it was done. It wasn't until after barbers that everything started getting it's own design

But since ugly Ben is so bad we only see the reverse? Ugly Ben is slightly better as a proof but it's one of the few coins that even the reverse is boring.

I agree with some other posts: I really like the Lincoln Shield cent, but it unfortunately is made on a poor metal. I feel it would be a winner if it went back to copper/bronze.

Also, I NEVER liked the Barber coins or the Morgan dollars. I do think all of the coins that follow right behind were sharp though.

There's nothing to get out of. This dumb game bhas been played efore and I've explained it before. First there's limited options and I don't really care about my avatar.

Then I said ASEs ruined walkers for me. Has nothing to do with not liking the design in general and if I was going to like it why wouldn't I like the biggest best made version of it?

Hopefully he can get some new material so I don't have to reexplain this to the same people everytime I say something bad about Walkers
