My Basic U.S. Coin Design Set (1792 - Present) is now "complete"!
Ranked #2 All-time. (a LOT behind the uncatchable D.L. Hansen). However, my set, while clearly lower in grade by about 1-1/2 grading points on average, has some things that his phenomenal set doesn't:
1. Every one of my coins eligible for a CAC (44 coins) has one.
2. Of the 44 coins potentially eligible for a "+", 30 of those 44 has a "+". (But his coins don't need a "+", as they are typically at least a full point or two grading points higher than mine)!
3. This set has one Flying Eagle cent and one Indian Head cent. Each of those two coins has a CAC AND also has the Eagle Eye Photo Seal from Rick Snow!

What caught my eye was the 1792....sigh....maybe you'll get one someday....

I am most impressed with your 1803 eagle.

My personal favorite would be the 1884 Liberty Seated quarter PR-67CAM.

Thanks everyone so very much for your kind words. I have passion for this wonderful hobby, and greatly appreciate the camaraderie of forum members. I work during the day, and always look so forward to reading the forum postings each evening. THAT's the best time of my day! (Some of you may be thinking "wow, if spending time on this forum is the highlight of his day, I feel sorry for him", lol).

Amazing set!

I must say though, I am a bit confused about how this overall registry set was designed, as in I don't quite get what is/isn't included. There is only the one space for Half Cent and one for large cent, but small cents get the 3 major designs. Anyone able to shed a little light?

The first coin that inspired this collection was a 20 cent piece that my dad brought home from his coffee shop in the early 1960's. Apparently early that day a customer used it to pay for a cup of coffee, thinking it was a quarter. Years later, as I upgraded the coins in my set, I sold this coin. Looking back, it's obviously clear that was a big mistake, as I truly wished I saved it for sentimentality.

The most recent coin I obtained yesterday, the 1835 Classic Head Half Eagle. While the True View shows a very distracting large dark area on the right obverse field, the seller assured me the separate obverse photo truly represents what the coin looks like in hand.

Thanks for asking.

While PCGS made the final decisions as to what to include, your example does not present any conflict in logic TO ME. The different Half Cent and Large Cent designs all exhibit Liberty on the obverse, where the Flying Eagle cent, Indian Head cent, and Lincoln Cent are night and day tremendously different designs from each other.
