After some deliberation, I decided to stop (and sell off) my half-finished 19th Century Type Set (as it had become too cost-prohibitive for me) and refocus on modern, affordable coins.

I decided to go with the Whitman 20th & 21st Century Type Album and start with Dollar coins. Today I finished the commemorative-style dollar section starting with the 1981-S SBA PR69DCAM and ending with the 2020-S Maryland/Hubble Telescope PR69DCAM.

Is it really worth buying these high-graded moderns to crack out when the same quality coins are readily available raw?

I agree with you. They are nice coins but if doing albums I get raw.

Saves me time by not having to go through thousands of ads for raw coins attempting to ascertain a grade.
Besides, the graded stuff isn't that expensive. Often only a couple of dollars more than the raw coin (if you can find a raw coin in the first place, as they are NOT readily available in high proof grades).

Nice start!

I agree that graded modern proof coins like these are relatively inexpensive, so it may be worth cracking them to make sure you're getting a high quality example.

I really like the Hubble Telescope. And the coin was not easy to get as a regular proof. Most of these are sold as reverse proofs.

Yes, Whitman made a few changes/additions. I've got the new version.

I do plan to buy select coins for my type set from my birth year, but that year is before the SBA series.

Not sure, I think they just added the American Innovation Dollar. My album has 41 holes.
