Type Set Additions

Coins-United States | Mr. B Coins

I recently added to my Type Set Collection.The first coin is a 1957 Proof Franklin Half.There were 1,247,952 proofs minted in 1957. The designer was John R. Sinnock. The Franklin Half was produced from 1948 to 1963.
The second coin is a 1945 S Walking Liberty Half. The mint mark is on the lower left rev. There were 10,156,000 1945 S produced. The designer was Adolph A. Weinman. The Walking Liberty Half was produced from 1916 to 1947.
Both coins are .900 silver.
As I mentioned in a previous blog, I'm not sure if I'm using Type Set properly. I buy the best coin I can afford.
I apologize if the images are sideways.
Stay safe and warm,

Mr. B

Great coins. I don't think it's possible to do a Type Set wrong. It's what you want it to be. Dansco makes a great album for this, if you can find one. I love the Franklin. I remember them in my pocket. That was a lot of money. Thanks.

Both are beautiful coins! You should add these pictures and the rest of your coins into "My Collections" under your account so that we can see your type set all together. Thanks for the update!

Very nice selections for a type set. Capital Plastics makes very nice presentation holders for Type Sets, in various sizes from individual denominations to complete U.S. coinage. Search "Capital holders".

Looks good to me! I have a full set of Franklins that I finished last year, I always liked the stance of the Eagle on the Walker reverse

You are absolutely doing your Type Set right. In fact, regardless of anyone's method, a Type Set is never going to be done wrong. It is what you have as your personal goal that is most important. BTW, Windows has software that will rotate those pictures the way you want, just go into Explorer, click your picture, and the upper right hand corner of the screen will display the clickable EDIT AND CREATE.

Nice addition. I take pictures with the coin sideways. That seems to get the right again when posting.
