Might I make a suggestion of, though it will be more expensive, buying higher grade coins if you can afford it? You'll not be able to build the set as quickly but one thing I really wish someone had told me when I started collecting is that quantity =/ quality. Now I'm stuck with a load of low grade coins from when I started many years ago that I can't really do anything with, nor are they really good to look at. Obviously, if most of your money is going on stamps and you'd rather get as close to a set as possible then buying lower grades won't matter so much. However, if you intend to make this a serious hobby then you'll really be grateful for investing more in better examples many years down the line.
My advice would be to learn about coin grading, values, storage and other such areas before delving too deep - as I mentioned Morgan dollars
isn't typically where people start because mistakes can be very costly and the set itself is very expensive, so people typically start on other sets (if you overpay for a Buffalo nickel
by a few dollars then it's no biggie, but if you've no knowledge of Morgan dollars
you could be overpaying by tens of dollars or even more). Not to say that you couldn't start with Morgans, but please do your research beforehand.
Feel free to ask questions here - don't be afraid to ask them because we're here to help - there are plenty of Morgan collectors on here who'll be able to guide you far more than I.
