I have collected many diff sets including barber halves, merc dimes, seated anythings, morgans, toned coins, etc…. And I have recently been bitten by the Pre-33 gold bug…
I just feel more comfortable in gold vs. silver coinage, but only the old stuff…. And only US…. I particularly like Indians in all denoms.
…is this a smart place to collect? Yes? No? …and why???
