I have yet to see any collectors of SBA's. The shortest dollar run in the history of the country.There are things to to do with those.

That is called Lamination laffaa. The layer of top coating peels off and exposes the inner layer.This is a mint error so if you see something like that you will know.The second coin is a wide rim.It is a rare coin in the SBA series.

I have the SBA series too. I don't have the proof varieties (although I do have all the regular proofs). I do have a 1979 Wide rim though. It was a nice set to start with since it was a relatively short run (with a big time gap to 1999) and fairly inexpensive. It was the first set I completed actually

I worked in Six Flags great adventure about 11 years ago, and we used these coins all the time, I never thought anything of it back then, I was not a coin collector at all, but we had to take dollars bills from people and then put a dollar coin into a machine that would count the amount of money that had been spent on the game!

I'm an SBA collector. The 81 S type 2 proof is real expensive coin in the series.

SBA four years production over a twenty year period
Ike dollar 9 years production over 9 years.
Bust dollars 9 years production over a 10 year period
Gobrecht dollars. Three years production over a four year period.
Flowing hair dollars two years production over a 10 month period.

I have some uncirculated and Proof Sets ......and a few singles. And I feel they definately have a place in the collection !
My fiancee' says it's her favorite coin......but putting together a "complete" Set with Proofs would just be too expensive for me to do for her....
I just have never gotten into the varieties....or even "near date/far date"....or anything like that.
But I would feel as though there were a "hole" in my collection without some shining examples of the good ole Suzy B. in it ! ....

I'm saving them also. So far I have only the 1979 D & P but when the 80, 81 & 99's appear I'll put them in my collection also.
