I finished my first set yesterday! It's a 68 piece WWII U.S. coinage collection. I tried to make sure all coins were at least MS63 and a couple are as high as MS65/MS66. It includes 15 Walking Liberty halves, 15 Washington quarters, 11 Silver Jefferson nickels, 3 Steel Lincoln Cents, 9 Shell-Case Lincoln Cents and 15 Mercury dimes. Even though I just completed it, I might try to sell it on eBay because there are some bullion coins I want badly! I would probably be able to get more selling the coins individually but they belong together. It's a fantastic set! Enjoy the pictures!

Beautiful!

And now you're going to get rid of them after all that work!

I've got all the bullion you need.

Very pretty set; quite an accomplishment. Even I could purchase the exact same set, ready made, it would not be the same as building it one coin at a time with matching luster and strike. You should keep it around for awhile to bask in the glow of accomplishment.

That is a SA-WEET set Congrats on your How about adding the Philippines coins from WWII that the USA minted? Are you sure you want to sell it? Looks like something you should hand down in the family.

Um, why would you sell It for bullion? Haven't we learned that bullion is not "where it's at" anymore? That's what all the talking heads are telling us.

Nice set!

Absolutely stunning! I am a little biased towards the WWII era coins...That set would stay in my safe until I passed it on to my kids.

Great set, certainly a tribute to your collecting skills. Had to be an enjoyable experience, what will you do next?
