When you say BN (used for brown uncirculated coins), does that mean you're looking for MS examples?

Replying to Coinfrog: In terms of the present project--an MS coin, any mint, for each year--yes, and BN's more often fit the budget, but if the price for something else is reasonable, all the better. I love 66RD's like I suppose everyone does! In terms of grade, on my limited budget, I'll take a 63 if it's OK, am usually happy with a 64, and consider a 65 a bonus. I personally consider color less important than grade, but that could be an interesting discussion for another day: is a collection more enhanced by a 64RD or a 65BN? I often wonder what people think about that, and I suppose the entry-level answer is, "It depends on the coin in hand."

I think it's an obvious answer. You said you are trying to sort of get a MS graded set. Not sure what the rest of your set looks like but if not like this one, only better, I suspect you would not be happy with this one.

I think BN unc Lincolns can be fantastic, but unless you are a stud grader, I would not advise paying up for raw examples.

Coinfrog, I'm sorry for the late reply to your last comment, but I just checked back and saw it. I am in complete agreement with your observation, and a couple of years of reading CCF and the (somewhat delayed) observation that so many eBay uncirculated raw coins were, shall we say, enhanced, led me to be willing to pay the extra for certified coins. I admire and envy folks who can identify an unmolested coin, but, alas, with so many ways to deceive the buyer, I am quick to say I don't have that level of expertise or experience. The internet is a wonderful thing for collectors, but am I becoming a geezer if I have a bit of nostalgia for the old local coin dealer who would not do such tricks?
