30 down and 14 to go. Finally decided my next set venture and it's not a Barber!

Curious how many here can forget about the 2 reverse rim bumps. I usually shun rim bumps but this look is so hard to find.

    The rim mark between the U and N on the reverse looks more like a planchet flaw. Is it straight graded?

    Yes, I don't think I've ever seen a coin bagged for rim bumps like this..maybe netted a bit.

    ** Yes, I don't think I've ever seen a coin bagged for rim bumps like this..maybe netted a bit**

    And I’ve seen them straight graded with worse, even in older holders.

    That is a great looking seated dollar.

    Nice coin.

    Good for you! I'm sure you are already aware, but you are tackling a tall mountain in attempting to put a full set of liberty seated dollars together. The 50-o is a nice start and not an easy coin to find in quality.

    @amwldcoin - Excellent choice for a new series. I would love to hear more about your plans for this set build. What grade range? Are you hoping to complete a full set eventually? If not which dates will you exclude? How long do you think it will take to complete the set with your standards? @Inspired70 hit the mail on the head. This set is a very tall mountain to climb!

    Yeap, I figured you would weigh in. My 1st major set I was building years ago was Seated Halves with this look. Man I wish I had a lot of the coins back I sold. Those and my Foreign gold type set are what financed my bridge to becoming a dealer. I'm going for XF-AU with the give or take looks of this coin. Yeah...maybe 1 day I will break my record and spend what it takes to get a 70-S if the right coin comes along! Oh, and maybe I will finish it before I die....just hope I have enough time to update my custom made coffin so I can take them with me! :#

    Those bumps look more like marks from being in a holder of some sort

  • Options
    amwldcoinamwldcoin Posts: 11,269 ✭✭✭✭✭

    Yeah, I do know. I would do the Halves but I figure there's more competition and maybe I can keep what I have to pay for the dollars in the realm of reality. I've never been a fan of Morgans(well except when I was a teeniebooper), but there's always been an alure for me for Seated and the dollar is so satisfying to look at!

    One of my all time favorite coins had a small rim bump and then a tiny one beside that one. I ignored them for the longest time and they did bother me, but I still kept the coin for 10 or more years and finally sold it, with intentions of replacing it with a better one, but never did.

    FYI, I have an 1850 Braided Hair Large Cent with a rim ding. It's in an MS 65 RB holder with a CAC sticker. So it depends on the kind of rim ding when it comes to answering your question. On your coin, I don't think it's an issue.

    I agree. I will say this, if the dings were on the Obv. I would have passed.

    As you know it doesn’t take more then a couple of new collectors to really affect prices. Unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at things) there is quite a few people that have started sets in the last couple years.

    I started this set many years ago. Good luck finding an 1854 or 1855 in problem free grades. Are you including the 1851, 1852 and1858? I still need 7 more but have not purchased one in ages. I collect coins in albums. My album has a place for an 1873-CC but not an 1871-CC which I have. I purchased my 1855 from the late Jimmy O' Donnell in 2000. Fun set to put together if you have the money.

    For sure the 51 + 52 if I can find them. The 58 would be an after thought.

    There is supposedly an AU set of seated halves near where I live, all dates and mints, all unslabbed and assembled in the 1970's and 1980's. The dealer that put it together died 20 years ago and was a good friend. I believe the person that owns it is someone who would literally shoot me if I asked about it, so I never have. It will only surface if he dies and a family member brings it forward.

    Nice one. At this rate you should have a very nice set with all 42 of them by the end of the year!

    Actually that's pretty much everything I've seen on the market that meets my parameters and is acceptable to me. This is going to be a long road to travel. I'm thinking about lowering the bar to 35 so more examples may come available.

    Don't lower your standards. Go for all 43-44. It's the journey that makes it fun. Have been on same/similar journey for a long time on this series and wouldn't trade it for the world. Enjoy the ride.
