Building a Lincoln Wheat Registry Basic Set (1909-1958)
I’ve decided to start a PCGS Set Registry Basic Lincoln Set from 1909-1958 All with Full RD Designation, There is a total of 140 Total Coins. I’m focusing on the basic set without major varieties because I would never be able to complete it without the highly coveted 1958 DDO, which is virtually unobtainable (only 3 known) On the other hand the 1969-S DDO is also very hard to find and very expensive. I plan on spending more money on key dates rather than common date top pop’s. I don’t see the point in spending a few thousand more dollars when top pop’s are a risky investment, I’m mostly sticking with MS67RD’s for the common dates. I do plan on having a few MS68RD’s, a bunch of MS67+RD’s and mostly MS67RD’s except for the key dates because they get super pricey. Lincoln’s have always been my favorite. My goal is to get quality over quantity. I’m Calling It “The Ruby Red Collection.” So far I’ve got 13 out of the 140 coins needed. I got inspired by Stewart Blay and of course seeing D.L Hansen’s all time finest set to start collecting high quality Lincoln's, and I am up for the challenge to build this set. I will keep posting coins that are added to the set, please feel free to comment your thoughts on any of the coins added or advice on how to make the set better.
