Another tough hole filled today...
Outstanding!

It is a tough hole, for sure. I let one get by me and it was several years before I found another I liked that was in my budget.

Type sets are truly amazing, and you have some beautiful coins to show off. I have about 10 holes left in my set. Hopefully I'll be able to fill them in the near future.

I started my set in 1993 and was at ten holes remaining about eight years ago. I have had one empty hole for two years now. I hope you are able to move faster than I have!

Nice score on that Classic Head cent. I know those are very tricky to get in good condition.

You are quite right. 1808-1814 were bad years for strike quality, plus they had issues with the copper quality also.

You don't see a classic head with honest wear often! Fantastic picks!

@jbuck, which hole are you currently missing?

My dream is one day I'll be able to compile a type set of much higher-quality coins to really show off their beauty, but there's something to be said for the lesser-quality and circulated coinage (particularly in a type set) to know all these different coins you have in your possession have actually passed through countless hands all throughout history.

I think he is missing one of the Seated dollar slots, the one with the motto.

Great additions! You seem to have a good eye to pick coins.

If you keep banging your head every time you buy a coin, you will be banging your head 76 times. Might not have a head left after completing your Dansco album!
