I found a list someone suggested as the best coins to own (in the highest grade that is affordable) and wondering what y'all think ?
1909 S VDB
1921 Peace dollar
1878 CC Morgan
1914 D penny
1955 DD penny
1937 D nickel
1916 D dime
1917 Standing Liberty quarter
1932 D quarter
1908 St Gaudens no motto

Some good choices but how about 1916 SLQ not the 1917 . and do you mean the 1937-D 3 legged Buffalo ?

Your list is interesting ,
Should be labelled as
" Easily Available better Date Coins"
Nothing on that list is really rare or hard to find.
Just takes the right amount of money .
Every coin on the list would be available
In most grades at a decent sized coin Show .

The 1955 Doubled Die Lincoln Wheat cent remains on my want list. Always been one of those I'd love to have but just can't justify buying.
My favorite album!

I 2nd that the 1937-D Buffalo is likely the 3-legged variety as the general coin is far from anything special in terms of rarity.

What these have in common is they are key dates in their series.

The Morgan (especially) and Peace dollars / Lincoln Pennys / Jefferson nickels / Mercury dimes / Washington quarter are widely collected series, so the demand will stay strong on the key dates of these series, especially for higher grade coins with eye appeal and no problems.

Standing Liberty quarters - The 1916 is the better date, but IMO is kind of a 2nd tier when it comes to the collecting base. I don't hear / see as many chasing after the set.

The St Gaudens set, due to the high entry point as its ~an ounce of gold very much limits its collecting base. Back in the late 90s when gold was $300/ounce, there likely was a base, but at this $1700-1900 range we've been at probably sent a lot of those folks into other areas of the hobby. Maybe I'm ignorant, but the pricing I'm seeing on in suggest that its viewed more as a "common" in the series and valued similarly to much of the rest of the set. That its value is primarily tied to gold might suggest that any scarcity premiums have already been wiped out by the high cost of gold.

Rather than the St Gaudens, maybe consider early branch mint Buffalo nickels, 1921 D or 41/42 overdate Mercuries, or higher grade earl S mint Walking Liberty halves.
My hoard of '82s is up to 204! 218 BC x 1, 118 BC x 3, 18 BC x 1, 82 x 1, 182 x 1, 282 x 2, 382 x 1, 582 x 2, 682 x 1, 782 x 2, 882 x 1, 982 x 4, 1082 x 1 1182 x 8, 1282 x 2, 1382 x 1, 1482 x 5, 1582 x 13, 1682 x 15, 1782 x 57, 1882 x 49, 1982 x 33

good point on the gold coin and on the SL Quarter. It does seems like there are several key Morgan dates beyond the one he/she mentioned. Personally, my Morgan set is my favorite, but maybe the 20th century coins are in more demand.(?) than Morgan dolalrs

The list could be long but if we're restricting it to 10, I might swap out the 1932-D for the 1895-O 10c. Not as well-known but they always get strong prices and in 64-65 they're almost ten times more expensive than the 32.

How about a 1920-S Walking Liberty in mid-to-high MS condition, CAC stickered.

I'm a Mercury dime nut so I'd put the 16D one with FSB at the top of the list.

Eagles and half eagles 1866-1875. The cc's have escalated like the Southern branch mints, but the P and S mints haven't, except in high grades. They've gotten very hard to find.

agree on the Mercury dime; I didn't type that list in any priority order. I do own a red S-VDB in 65 and I think the dime is on my next wish list some day. My concern is on the sticker price. I am worried that the higher the grade, the less liquid the dime becomes. Do you have an opinion non this ?

I have several of those coins already but would much rather have a nice bust dollar in an older holder with CAC. Ditto for any 18th or early 19th century type coin. Try finding a nice, original early (1790's-1800's) half dime. They are out there but much rarer than an MS '09-S VDB.

Type 1 I presume?
I actually bought a nice AU for my own type set. I will post it when it arrives.

Yep Type 1, looking for an AU one and they are currently priced over greysheet. Still have 19 other coins needed so it may wait, unless I find one for a good price.
