A couple of months ago I decided to start a US 19th Century Type Set. Selected the set from Littleton as it contains a reasonable amount of type coins (57). Not too few, not too many in my opinion.
Anyhow, my first two rows of "odd denominations" are completed!

Some close-ups. Note that the shades seem to cutoff part of the coins. However, I can assure you the coins are in good conditions and by no means damaged.
Three Cent Silver:



Three Cent Nickel:



Liberty no "cents"



Liberty "cents":



Photographing the two Shield nickels seems to be impossible. Can't get them sharp.

If you keep up those high quality standards, it is going to really get expensive.

Yes, I estimated that it will cost me about $35,000 for the entire type set.

Is that including Draped Bust and Flowing Hair and if so what grades? I ask because I've got 70 coins in my set so far and am half way done and only spent $20,000 so I'm trying to figure out where you got that $35,000 figure. It also is worth noting that my cost per coins was probably a few times yours or in some cases perhaps 10x as much.

It does not include Flowing Hair, but it does include Draped Bust (my set starts in 1800 and only has 57 holes to fill).
Also, for the smaller coins (e.g. half dimes, dimes) I will probably stick with VF grades.
As I see it, the most expensive coins will be every Draped Bust, the Classic Head Large Cent, and the Capped Bust quarter.

Maybe I'm doing the math wrong here, but all of the Draped Bust stuff and the capped quarter would only be $12000. That's if you were to get the capped quarter in MS. Unless you did the rest of your 19th century stuff in MS I dont know how you hit 35k. I'm not trying to be insulting or whatever, I'm just confused

I checked the PCGS website for the price of every coin in XF grade. That adds up to $35K. If I go lower in grade with the Draped Busts, then the total price will be a bit lower.
I guess it depends on what grade you want for the type of coins you collect as part of the entire set. So, I decided to do VF-ish for the half dimes and dimes, but probably high AU and MS for the (half) cents. For quarters, half dollars, and dollars I probably also would like to stick with the better grades as these coins are relatively large and may therefore benefit from AU through MS with respect to eye appeal.
