A few years ago, I was looking for something to collect. I was just randomly looking through the red book and trying to find something. I was having trouble, but I went back to the seated dimes. I remembered how easy it was to get my type coins at an affordable price, so I decided seated dimes would be the one. I started buying coins at my local coin show, and putting them in a red box for 2x2s. Once I got enough, my grandfather got me some albums for the coins, which also included bust dimes. I started collecting those, too and that's why I collect early dimes now.
