No Complete Type Sets?

scooter25scooter25 Posts: 769 ✭✭✭✭

I could be wrong, but I have been looking through the set registry looking for a complete U.S. coin type set that goes all the way to present. I have found them going to 1964, 20th century, and 21st century but nothing that combines them all. It is something that I am currently working on and have to use the three sets above to get them all. I am not talking about each individual NP quarter and each individual state quarter, each presidential dollar, etc. I am talking about one that has one example of each type of coin from the late 1700's until now. Am I missing it or does the line between old coin collectors and modern coin collectors loom so large that there couldn't possibly be a set that combines the two?

    No, you're not missing anything. In order to get the "Complete" Type set you have to combine the 3 sets
    I am also working on this monster set.

    It’s a fun run to put together. I wish there was a 21st century type set with no gold as well.

    Not saying anything will happen but there is a set request page/form.

    Across the street has this https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive/united-states/type-sets/191/

    I’m currently ranked at 49. I’d be much higher if they had a circulated version. I don’t actively collect MS grades, but of course I have some Moderns that are MS

    According to the NGC registry, includes only one State Quarter, America the Beautiful Quarter and others, and representational dollars, I was complete until about a year ago. Now there are a couple of modern coins I can’t buy without paying very high prices for certified coins. The mint puts out a huge number of varieties of modern coins that don’t circulate and have no historical significance.

    I don’t want them. If they are part of the Proof sets, I have them. If they are not, I don’t. It’s very expensive to keep up with that stuff if it has to be certified. I’m done. I’ve got everything up to the mid 1980s plus. Beyond that, it’s hit and miss for me.

In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    I would love a “circulation only” type set through the 21st century.

    They have it through 1964. Close enough??

    Not really, I’d like one through the modern era.

    I don't see a need to start a set across the street when I don't own any of their coins,
    I'll just stay here and have the 3 sets for the complete type set

    Be aware even with 100% PCGS coins you can still partake in the various NGC Registry sets.

    There was a time when I could keep up with the new coins in the registry sets by buying “dealer rejects.” Dealers used to get modern Proof coins bulk graded. The idea was to sell “the winners,” the PR-70 coins, for strong money and blow off the “losers,” the PR-69 coins, for $20 or do. Those days seem to be over.
