    I didn’t think anyone collected this series anymore

    I still collect the series, but haven't added to it in AGES! But a nice short series.

    Back in the days when I actively collected them, I got down to the more expensive dates (1864 small-date, 1872, & 1873), and just couldn't justify spending the necessary $ on them when we had a mortgage, kids in college, work-loss, etc.

    But still one of my favorite (and simplistic) designs - - along with the IH/FlyingEagle Cent, Walker half, & Morgan $1's.

    Everytime I build a set (no 1873) and place it in my showcase, it sells quickly.
    I'm still looking for 2c pieces.

    Pro hack:
    Stop placing them in your showcase.

    @BigAL I collect these coins and really enjoy them. When ever i find a good price i usually pull the trigger w/o regard for the date. i bought a lot of 2 cent pieces on Ebay a few years ago and when it was delivered there was a low grade 1863 SM in the lot. Every once in a while, a blind squirrel finds a nut.

    Just a senor moment. 1 year wouldn't make any difference, would it? HaHa. Here is a picture of that1864 SM that I got from that $25 lot.
