$100 Dansco 7070
I have been out of actively collecting for a good number of years since my previous collection was stolen (Army PCS move, nothing was covered, long story). So outside of stacking a little silver and the occasional coin received as a gift, I just have not been motivated to devote much time or money into collecting. Now that I have retired from the Army and settled into a regular job, I’m starting to get to collecting itch again. I have always been a bit of an eclectic collector to begin with and I have always liked the Dansco 7070, so this seems like a great way to get back into the hobby. Also, maybe while working on it one series or another will catch my eye and I can focus on them next. I’ll never have the resources to have a top set, so I decided to make up my own challenge.
My goal is to complete a 7070 (no gold) with the following stipulations:
1. $100 max per coin.
2. All PCGS graded.
3. No problem coins (cleaned, damaged etc.).
4. Best possible grade per type (condition over rarity).
5. Coin be in good enough condition as to not look a washer in a slab.
Clearly, some of these coins will be much more challenging than others, but I was wondering if this was a realistic goal to set for myself. Also, which coin(s) do you feel with be the most difficult to find?
