Hi all,

Like most collectors I usually need a prod to start a new collection. In the cases of the Canada Small and Large Cents, I had all of Canada "Bully" me:

http://goccf.com/t/368817
http://goccf.com/t/366497

But even though I already have a 20th century type:





I got "bullied" into doing the 7070.

As I already had the 20th century type set I had most of the coins, but after looking at the missing ones, I was having a hard time getting raw coins to put in an album (especially raw MS coins). So following in the great footsteps of @grapecollect I decided to do a Registry Set.

So which set? Well NGC lets one use both PGCS and NGC coins so that was a no brainer. I am never a slab buyer, I am coin buyer so being limited to one TPG well was "limiting".

I recently put all the coins I had into my registry collection and was in the 190's.

But I need to make sure I can afford to complete the set, so I needed to go out and check prices on the most expensive coins and I was able to find ones that I could afford. So what will my type set consist of:

1) Sadly only NGC and PGCS coins. In this case buying and slabbing doesn't look like it will make it worthwhile, so I will be concentrating on pre slabbed coins.
2) I want to keep the majority of coins under $300, yes I know a few are over, but I will cross that price point when its time.
3) While I was looking locally, a few of the lower cost coins aren't available, so eBay maybe used.
4) The grade doesn't matter, but I would like a minimum VF grade, but eye appeal and price are as important.

As the above was getting too long, starting chapter 2:

5) The registry set will be stored here: https://NGCcoin.com/registry/compet...sets/305404/

6) I already had a lot of coins prior as I've been picking up slabbed coins when they are a good price and available locally.
7) And I'm starting now as my US Currency Type was pretty much done the few notes I need, I haven't found at a good price and I needed a break from Currency. For those that want to check out my US currency type set here http://goccf.com/t/373956
8) My eventual goal is to get to the top 100, I would like to be in the top 50, but I'll doubt I'll spend that much.

Today I went to my Local Coin Shop and purchased 2 coins that I was missing and I also ordered a few coins from eBay so I figured why start now.

I'll post when I get a new coin, but NGC will have the latest.

My Local Coin Shop in early 2020 purchased a massive collection of coins. Vast majority were PCGS slabbed coins and the collector actually had a top 50 registry set. Sadly I was trying to complete the currency type set so I passed on a lot of coins. The owner and I have a good relationship, so he puts coins on hold for me and I pick them up when I can. I've only put 2 away but have another 3 that I am very interested in.

Today, after putting the 2 away I checked my list and picked up that I was missing.

First is the $1 Susan B. Anthony



2nd was a slabbed ASE (I have lots of ASE but none slabbed)




When I can, I will pick up proofs (just because I like the way they look, you can thank Barry G for that :) )

And if you don't like this post, you can all blame jBuck as he was the bully that pushed me to do this set

Yes his coins set the bar pretty high for the rest of us.

Looks like the makings of a great 7070 type set.

Now that they are accepting PCGS coins, too, I'm considering starting a 7070-with-gold registry set.

Great start, smart methods, including (in my opinion) buying coins already graded. While it can be argued you might then be paying more, by buying slabbed coins you remove several risks - counterfeit coins, coins with surface and other problems that will come back "detailed", and grading disappointments.

I like that you're including proof coins when affordable. Advantage #1 - As you correctly point out, they typically have much greater eye appeal due to the stronger strike, super high luster, and watery mirrors. Advantage #2 - Many times proof coins are less expensive than Mint State coins in the same grade, so always check that before making a purchase.

Finally, besides hunting on eBay, I strongly suggest looking at Great Collections. Each week they offer a ton of coins that you need in the grades you want - NGC and PCGS. Use their search filters to save you time. Additionally, use their Coin Auction Archive (scroll to the bottom of the page to find that) to see what people have been paying. Make sure to use their filters too for that, including setting the results to sort by "Most Recent", since many of these coins have been selling for less recently than several years ago. CAUTION: I believe you're going to find MANY of the coins you'll need, and that can be frustrating, since it's a Budget Buster!
Take their 10% (or 12.5%) Buyers Fee into account as you place your bids. Finally, their shipping charges are very reasonable.

You're on your way to putting together a set that you'll be VERY proud of!

By the way, I think you may discover the 7070 set will require MANY more coins than you think that are currently in your current 20th Century Type Set. I started out exactly like you, but it was FUN working on those missing coins over a period of time.

Happy Hunting!
A day without fine wine and working on your coin collection is like a day without sunshine!

Thank you all for the nice words! I'm pretty excited about completing this set. I ended up ordering a few of the new/common coins from eBay as I can't find them locally. But I should have known that the USPS would delay every one of the coins. All are "Delayed in Transit", oh well after the 25th hopefully I'll get them.

Well one package finally came in. Not to spam the forum, I'll post one per day. As jBuck has a fascination with a certain president, I'll start off with that one. I decided to go for Silver as the regular bicentennial are very common.

An excellent example!

That is a great way to open a show.

Nice start. I enjoyed seeing your initial progress. With COVID and spending so much time at home, I have also started a new Type Set and focusing on 1794 thru 1964. I am using the PCGS Registry and decided as well that I would be adding slabbed material only and limiting it primarily to PCGS. So far, the 1793 issues are obviously out as are the half dimes thru the capped bust half dime. I am sure there will be other unachievable items, but I am going to do as much as I can. I am focusing on XF45 as my target grade with a few lower and some higher. But I am after a reasonably matched set, so 40 to 45 grades are the sweet spot. Anyhow, good luck on your journey!
