Actually, for me it's "none of the above". I pretty much only use eBay for low-dollar certified MS/Proof modern issue coins that are not generally available through my normal dealers or major auction sites. I want those for my type sets, and I do find eBay a good source for those types of coins.
For other online purchases through dealers, since I'm primarily a type collector, there's no one specific series of coins I focus on in my purchases.
My U.S. Type Set: https://www.NGCcoin.com/registry/co...sets/278808/
My U.S. Classic Commemorative Complete Set: https://www.NGCcoin.com/registry/co...sets/278741/
My 20th Century U.S. Type Set - Proofs only, No Gold https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/co...sets/396301/

Generally for me I don't buy American coins on eBay. Most canadian sellers I find have everything American over priced, and generally less attractive examples. I see many great deals from American sellers but then the shipping jumps from 0-4$ right up to 15-20+ which deters me from buying nicer examples so it's rare for me to find a half decent US coin for a half decent price. That being said the only American coins I have purchased in eBay were 1 43S nickel and 2 rough common Indian Head cents.

All that said I guess Indian Head cents would be the answer for me but only due to inconvenient shipping costs

I don't do much buying on ebay. What I have bought more than once and would consider buying again is silver Washington quarters for bullion. You don't have that on the list.

I would never buy morgan dollhair.

Well when build my Dansco album - it would have been Quarters - because there are so many of the little darlings to get to fill my 5 albums.
But from the list? let me think Well ASE would have been next, then Lincoln cents Is my answer due to lack of options to pick from.. [shr}

I'm not sure why "Barber series" and "Barber half" are both options, but I picked series. Many years ago (when I first joined this forum actually) all I bought from ebay was Canadian George VI silver. Lately I've made some Barber discoveries and sought examples of them.

Sorry, this is an ill-conceived thread. No mention of any Liberty Seated issues, Bust coins, minor denominations like 2 and 3 cent pieces, gold, and so on. C'mon.

I'm trying to see what coins are most popular.

I was only able to put 15 coins so I'll make another thread being more inclusive.

However you construct this poll, I don't believe the replies will form a meaningful sample on this small forum.
