My main interests right now are my US Phillipines Admin Date/MM set, DANSCO 7070 US Type set album, and 3 Whitman US 20th century Type Set albums (For the young'uns).

What other type sets do you find interesting and affordable?

I think the 4 coin type set for 3 cent pieces are interesting and will not cost your dirst born to complete.

Maybe a Standing leberty 3 coin type set?

Many, many years ago there was this plastic sheet encasement for the 20th Century Type Set. Bought it and filled it and put it in a safe deposit box and haven't even looked at it since. Many people like type sets but for some reason I have no or little interest in them.

I've had an interest in putting together several type sets for many years. The only one that I'm even close on would be the 1 cent coins, but I don't see myself completing that any time soon due to the expense of the pre 1800 ones.

I have enjoyed putting together a couple of the Whitman 20th Century Type sets But what I would like to see is a similar 19th Century Type set. Something covering the obsoletes but not getting into details with varieties.

I personally would like to put together a set of Standing Liberty quarters.

That would actually be a set or collection of just one type of coin. Almost all Album and Folder manufacturers make them for that coin alone. A type set of Quarters alone would be interesting though just not enough to make a real type set of them.

I have three U.S. Type sets. The first I finished as a kid with lawn mowing money in a push-in folder album with barely recognizable coins, many with holes or corrosion, but I love it. The second I finished during grad school and is mostly G to VG coins in the older dates, but nice looking examples, in a Whitman album. The third is in a Dansco 7070 and is half complete, focusing on XF coins on up, or as close as I can afford.

I like having all three and the progression they represent...

I have some other sets... A culion leper colony set, philippines (U.S. Admin as well as Spanish decimal), and an India (Republic, 1950+) type collection.

Make a buffalo set: one type of every American coin that has a buffalo on it. All in the best condition.

I used to collect only Morgans and collected almost a whole set of MS-64 Date and MM set but got really bored with it. I then started a Dansco 7070 type set and that lit the collecting fire again that I had lost looking at the whole collection that looks alike. I even tried selling off some of the MS-64 coins and making the whole set with nothing lower than a MS-66 but still that fizzled out rather quickly also. I do still collect Morgans but mostly its by VAM now instead of just trying to finish up the date/mm set I have going in MS-66 or above grades but maybe some day I will work on it again. I think any type set no matter if its Lincoln cents or 20.00 Gold pieces could get boring to the collector after you see so many of them and that is why I suggest a 20th century type set or something like that where every coin in the set looks different

I just started the Dansco 7070 type set, I have most of the coins for it already just missing those few early 1800s coins. Does anyone know a set that has the commerative gold ($5,$10 and AGE as well)

A Longacre type set(either non-gold, or fully inclusive) would be fun, and relatively cheap (as gold goes.)

My latest sort of type sets are those of the same type of coin but continous from one type to another. By that I made an Album of Cents from Flying Eagle, Indian Head, Lincoln Cents all in one Album. All proofs and errors are not included. Another one is Liberty Seated, Liberty Head, Mercury Head, Roosevelt dimes all in one Album. Again, no proofs, no errors, and in some instances, no repetitious dates such as 1982's where there are so many. A Nickel one of Shield type to present also. Mostly all must be made from blank pages of that denomination. Nice to break the monotony of just one thing.
