Post your sub-sets, mini-sets.

It's always interesting to see what others consider a sub-set, mini-set, etc. This is one of mine:

1861-O Seated Half made under Union control


( will be upgrading soon I hope)

1861-O Seated Half made under Louisiana state control



1861-O Seated Half made under CSA control

    What exactly is a sub-set or mini-set?

    That is a cool subset OP.

    Whatever you define it to be, steel Lincolns could be considered a sub or mini set, or a short set of Walkers. Even a transition year like 1909 where the cent has both Lincoln and IHC coins could be a sub set.

    Thanks @coinbuf! So maybe something like this. W Quarters I've found and but some sets together.

    Seems like a perfect subset to me! Maybe both years makes a mini set.

    A very short set of Lincolns found during a search through a 1000Ct bag..........

    I have a lot of 'subs'... but no real 'sub sets'....That is what happens when you just get coins that attract you, for any one or more multiple reasons. :D Cheers, RickO
