My Type Set

15 Oct 2016

I will add pictures eventually! I forgot to make the pictures a smaller size and can't import them!

I have been working on building a type set since the beginning of last year. An experienced collector may not be impressed yet, but there are a few specimens that I am proud of. Some coins are popular beauties and others have quite a story behind them in either history or how I came to acquire them.

I also have been working on upgrading coins to NGC or PCGS slabs, and I am up to 13 (I think). Those are as follows:
1909 V.D.B. Lincoln Cent NGC MS-64 BN, interesting diagonal streaks. One of the newest coins for my type set.
1883 No Cents Liberty Nickel, PCGS MS-63, common coin, but a beautiful edition to my collection. The other new coin.
1913 Type 1 Buffalo Nickel, NGC MS-64, beautiful strong strike. The highest price I have paid for any coin in my collection.
1938-D Jefferson Nickel, PCGS MS-64
1943-D Jefferson War Nickel, PCGS MS-65+ FS
1941-S Mercury Dime, NGC MS-66, almost FB
1948-D Silver Roosevelt Dime, PCGS MS-66 FB
1983-S Clad Roosevelt Dime, PCGS PR-69 (Only $1.00, why not?)
1962 Silver Washington Quarter, PCGS PR-69
1963 Franklin Half Dollar, PCGS PR-65
2000-S Sacagawea Dollar, NGC PR-69 (Bargain Bin)
2007-S George Washington Dollar, NGC PR-70 (My only "perfect" coin)
2009-S Native American Dollar, NGC PR-69 (Only two times face value!)

That actually does come out to 13. My unslabbed specimens include:
