Kinda tired of the set building… what 5 coins should I own
I have built a number of sets some range in 22 coins to 115 coins in the set. I have decided after reading these forums I would like to own a 5 coins (yes only 5)… which are the 5 examples I should consider adding to my collection.
I do not want to try to get the coin that’s going to take me forever to find…. I have a couple after reading these threads that seem to be a must:
( I am mentioning what I have so it saves those that offer me an idea the trouble of doubling me up)
Morgan silver dollars date set 1878-1904 + 1921
3 cent nickel set 1865 -1889
American Silver Eagles 1986-2023 (All graded MS70 except for 2 that I am waiting to find)
Kennedy Half dollars Circulation strikes 1964-2023
*** I have a few of the coins below but need help with year and grade that I should acquire.****
I would like to cap my cost for each coin at $5,000.00
My total investment in these 5 should not exceed $25,000.00 ….
I will post pictures on this thread of the Coins as I acquire them…
Again, please if anyone is well versed in the ones I have listed knowing my budget please identify the year and grade I should look for in that particular coin.
2 of the 5 that I come up with are:
1- St Gaudens 20.00 double eagle
2 - Capped Bust Quarter
Okay, those are the 2 so far that I think would be really nice additions to the collection.
I’m looking for 3 more…..
Thank you in advance for your ideas.
I am not looking to sell these, I am adding them to enjoy and be introduced to other coins for which I have not been aware of or know much about….
