19Lyds 61  CA Eisenhower Dollars and mostly Moderns!
AAcoinco   PA I am a full time dealer of US Coins. Visit us online at WWW.AACoinCO.Com or email me at Bob@AACoinCo.Com. I got into this business after a dealer tried to take my mother across for my grandfathers coins after his death. I did not even know that he collected so this hobby came to me late in life. I wish that I had the chance to collect with him. I am a District Delegate for the ANA and spend 40 weeks a year on the road attending coin shows. Look me up at the coin shows in your area and say hello. Bob @ All American Coin Company, Inc.
abmluce 43  MA Mostly type coins, have almost a full circulated set. I Love bust halves, wish i could have more, along with proof coins from the 1800's. Also somewhat collect morgans (120 or so), and I am starting to collect modern cameo proofs. Do some metal detecting, but having 4 kids puts a strain on my budget and time !
aem4162 42  OH i have some morgans, mint/proof sets, a REALLY pretty gobrecht/rittenhouse commem medal made by the hanover (pa) numismatic society, some international coins, and a lot of junk. my collection is ugly but it has personality (thank you stujoe).

arlea1957 47  PA New collector interested in most coins. trying to focus on Morgans for now but find the bust coinage pretty interesting, will probably venture into that area next.
ArtR 66  TN I collect any US coin with nice or Monster Tone, primarily Morgan Dollars.
Askari 45  TX German Imperial era coins and banknotes, especially colonial issues. A related but secondary field is WWI Notgeld. I also collect 20th century military occupation coins, notes and guerrilla notes. A further collecting area is coinage of the ancient Celtic civilization.
auandag 63  NV My emphasis is on Carson City dollars but Morgans of any mint mark are just fine with me. I've completed sets of Walkers and Barber halfs and sold them. I've completed several Washingtons and sold them too. No interest in anything smaller than dollars now. Have yet to buy a coin from a B & M. I buy collections and sell off what I don't want to fund more purchases. Been collecting since the 50's. Grew up in Carson City but live in Vegas now.
AuldFartte 55  NM Major U.S. Type Set, British Conder Tokens, U.S. Half Cents, and U.S. Large Cents are my current active collections, along with some "odd" items that attract my attention including some counterstamped U.S. coins, 18th century Calendar Medals, and a few "darkside" coins.
BAJJERFAN 56  IA I am a collector mostly of Morgan silver dollars. I have at the present a completed set number 18 current finest in the PCGS registry. I dabble too in Silver Eagles and SQ proof sets and such like stuff from the Mint. How I got my handle!! Easy.

Barberian 51  FL Mainly half dollars: capped bust, seated liberty, Barbers, Walkers, and classic commemoratives
BarCoder DE Morgans, Peace Dollars Walking Liberty, Franklin MS64FBL Some gold type but not much
barnical 52  TX I am a novice silver collector. I started on a whim then got bit really bad. My collection is growing slowly. I joined PCGS a month ago and the info I have aquired is fantastic. I am looking at all the advice I can get. I have made a few mistakes but have truly learned from them. I am sure there are more to come. I know that in coin collecting you gotta be able to trust someone.I have heard of some of the scams. I am sure I have bought some also. It is nice to be on board.
beartracks42 63  OH I collect most US coinage.
My main collecting effort is High grade Silver Washington Quarters.
I also collect proof sets and mint sets.
I have a complete set of the Lincolns, with the 1909svdb being the only slabbed coin in the set.
I also like the modern coins. I collect Commemoratives and have complete sets of the Unc and Proof ASE's.
I am beginning to get really fixated with the seated series of coins, especially in the years of 1842(100 years older than I am) and 1878. I find this to be a slow moving venture as the coins are somewhat expensive and hard to find uncleaned.
Well, that is me, for now. Gary
betta285 15  NJ I collect Morgans specifically, but if it's nice and within my budget, i'll buy it. I am currently working on U.S. Type Set but always on the look out for quality and original pieces.

billboat   TX Draped and Capped Bust Halves (year set), Morgans (have a complete year set, but I try to upgrade to include as many keys as posssible), Peace dollars (year, MM) and am working on a type set (1800 to present).

Bruce 43  ON Coins. Started with U.S. coins then when I moved to Canada I branched out into world coins and Canadian coins.
bstat1020 IL I live in Freeport IL and I am working on a PCGS Registry set in mint state Lincoln Wheat backs. I also collect pretty much everything in a Whitman folder.

Also Mint and Proof Sets. 08-28-01 Thanks in advance Brian
bubblehead 62  CA I'm retired US Navy (Subs). I now have the time to put some sets together for the 3 grandsons. I'm not focused on any particular coin, or series of coins. I have some of everything. It's lots of fun, and perhaps the boys will someday benefit from my efforts.

I am building a base in most of these areas and will improve the quality of each as time and moneies permit.
busterwilson 46  CA I seem to have collected everything and anything I could get my little hands on. It all interests me, but my main passions are in the Old U.S. Commemorative Halves and American GOLD. I also collect things I dig up with a metal detector that I hope would be the big treasure haul, but never is... Soon...
cacheman   OR I saw the Light, and it was Dark! Sold all of my mundane U.S. coinage and now collect World coins and medals exclusively. Hasta!
calgolddiver 45  SC California Small Denomination Gold - period 1 and 2. These are very rare pieces. The thrill is in the hunt and the bidding.
calvet 39  CT Just started to get serious about collecting. I have been collecting all silver U.S. coins minted prior to 1964, although some of the modern silver proofs are eye catching. Also pre 1933 gold U.S. coins raw, but I just started getting some of them slabbed when I can afford it.
Cam40 42  TX Interests are Proof sets mainly.I collect any coin or exonomia if its interesting.I enjoy collecting early US coinage,to modern mint-state coins and all the great stuff in between.
carolj   CA
ccex 45  IL I spend most of my coin budget pursuing VF-AU Barber Dimes, F-XF Barber halves, F-AU Barber Quarters by date. I'm always interested in upgrading my Dansco U.S. Type album, which is complete except for a few remaining holes on the gold page. Finally, I love no-problem U.S. coins in Poor-1 and U.S. Commemoratives which were issued with the flimsiest of excuses.

CharlieB 59  MD I have collected primarily mint state Washington's, SLQ's, especially 1916's, Mercs, Barber quarters, especially 1913-s, Walkers and Isabellas. The SLQ is my favorite coin, obviously the Type I design is hard to beat. My current interest at this time is no specific series, just a beautiful coin that catches my eye. I like the history and beauty of all coins, pure and simple. Click on some of the topics I discuss in my website on Coin Collecting

chuckylucky3 60  TN Although i am fairly new at serious collecting, i really enjoy the beauty of mint, and especially Proof coins. I usually like to buy complete sets, but i do collect circulated coins to complete various albums. Enjoy chatting about coins too!
cjmbuffalo 53  CO Been collecting for two years. Collecting all proof coins from 1950 to present. Proof SAE. Working on registery set of IKES both in proof and mint and varieties.
Cladiator 32  CA My main area of interest is in collecting and studying the Capped Bust Half Dime (1829-1837) by die marriage and die re-marriage. I'm striving to complete this collection, one day, with target condition range of AU. I'm currently a bit over 25% of the way there. I'd say about 90% of my numismatic time, funds and effort go into this collection. I also have a handfull of sideline collections that I work on from time to time; ~ Type 1 Gold Dollars in AU ~ Fractional currency by type beginning with the Continentals ~ Large size U.S. currency by type

Cocoinut 52  CO I like to pick up a few nice MS 19th century type coins each year, but recently have been concentrating on a MS silver Washington set, and have begun working on a modern type set; both are in the PCGS Registry. I still need a many of the tougher dates in my SL quarter set (MS64+), and have a weakness for choice early Lincolns. I've been a collector since I was 6, so I've accumulated a lot of nice raw coins over the years, mainly U.S., but occasionally I'll pick up some nice foreign coins that I find attractive. Other likes: Walking Liberty halves, Mercury dimes, Morgan and Peace dollars, half cents by die variety, Buffalo nickels.
codamyer 47  SD Mostly 1943-D Steel cents. Got lucky back in 1975 to open a OBW roll of 1943-D cents that contained 20+ RPM#1 (The Big One) I joined the Airforce in 1984 and stopped collecting. I retired in 2005 and now have started to collect coins again.
coinblue1 58  MI Dealer
coincollecter15   ND I collect everythign with a focus on Mercury Dimes.
coindaughter   CA I'm not a collector...yet! My siblings and I inherited a LOT of coins from our father, Jack. I have undertaken the task of learning all I can about his coins. He has all kinds, old, new, silver, gold. Mostly US, but some foreign as well. It is a huge undertaking, but I am enjoying it and having fun.
coinfinder 15  WA I am a BIG fan of proof sets! I aslo like mint sets and SAE's. And I like almost anything minted in 1986 (birth year). I love coins!
coinguy1 48  CA
coinguyerick 39  OH I collect all U.S, coins. I have recently been more focused on CC dollars and bust halves.I do really enjoy the Franklins and have just a couple more to finish a FBL half set.
coinhead1 54  FL I collect U.S. coins both circulated and uncirculated. Main interest lie in buffalo nickles, Lincoln cents, Franklin halves. I have recently been interested in slabbed coins, mint and proof sets. I started collected in the 60s and gave it up while I raised a family. I gave away or sold most of what I called a collection during that period so most of what I have now has been gotten recently. I enjoy the coins as an art form and a history stimulus. The new state quarters are an interest to my grand-kids so I have started sets for them, and if the truth be known enjoy that part of it as well. I enjoy reading, writing and gardening and I guess that goes with my age. i joined the forum in July 2001 and have gained a lot from it.
CoinJP 17  NY My main interests are U.S. coins. I like to collect U.S. type coins,medals,tokens,etc. Right now, I seem to be chasing after early coins. I try to buy about two coins a month.

CTGREATONE 60  CA Washington Quarters and Large cents are my thing!
cvan68 51  AZ Began collecting in the mid to late 60's. Started out with Jefferson nickels because my brother collected cents my sister collected dimes and anything else was to expensive. Eventually I managed to branch out into just about everything, and my siblings pretty much stopped collecting. As with most people I had a lull in collecting form my late teens to mid 20's. My more favorite collection is my type set in the old Library of Coins books, which are still my personal favorite books. Recently completed a set of Walking Liberty Halves and Mercury Dimes. Complete sets of Jeffersons, Roosevelts, Washingtons, Franklins, Kennedys, Dollars 1971 on. Still working on Lincolns & Buffalos. Wish I had started on SLQ a long time ago. Have a fair number of modern commemorative, but am missing the more high dollar ones from the mid 90's when I was in my "protest of the deluge of coins from the mint stage" and was tired of paying issue prices only to see them drop on the after market, the number of coins for the Atlanta Olympics really set me off - figured to buy them for less on the after market...still don't have them. Have recently picked up a couple of Colonial coins, Massachussetts Cent and Virginia Halfpenny, and could see mysel going off in that direction quite easily.
Dabigkahuna 41  FL I have been busy lately with the modern American Eagle series. Gold and Silver in both mint state and proof. I am also working on a $20 Gold Liberty set with S mint marks. It is hard to pick a favorite since I like most coins and can't buy them all, yet!
dakra 32  NY Coins: I collect mostly modern coins which include: Uncirculated, Proof, and Silver Proof sets, Commemerative Coins, Gold American Eagles, Silver American Eagles. I do have an appreciation for old coins but my collection is limited. These include Wheat Pennies, Indian Head Pennies, Silver Coinage and Morgans. I go to the bank each week to pick up coin rolls in hopes to find something out of the ordinary.
dan1ecu 34  OK I collect coins that I think are rare and interesting: 19th century proofs, colonials, early U.S. coins, superb brilliant uncirculated moderns (1940's-1960's), and FBL Franklins.
danarchy I collect many a coin,yes. US likes are pretty much limited to silver coinage, with exception to Roosevelts and franklins(which I finished as fast as I could)Favorites are Mercs, Morgans, and WLH's. I will someday have a collection of MS SLQ's, but at this point they are cost prohibitive. I am currently Building 3 pcgs type sets. complete,upgrade, that's the goal. My first submission contained my first 2 gold coins...both came back pr69dcam. Not a bad start. I will be playing the grading game, hopefully with the big boys someday! World coinage, I collect Swedish(as I am a Swede) As a passing thought, a family member sailed on the Kalmar Nyckel to the now USA in 1638. The vessle is commemerated on both Swedish and US coinage!
Danegeld 44  SD 18th, 19th, 20th Century US Coinage/ 18th, 19th, 20th Century World Coinage/Roman & Greek Ancients/Sports Cards/Rocks/Books/Volksmarch Memorabilia/and whatever else catchs my eye ;)
danreller 44  SC I collect US Type Coins in the highest grade I can afford "at the time". I do upgrade as desirable coins become available. I've gotten to the point where almost all of the remaining coins needed are over $800 and I don't want to drop down in grade to get an example. I feel a "type coin" should have the detail to show what the coin looks like. I want to stay at least in the VF+ grades. Almost all of my coins thus far are XF+ and 97% are Certified MS coins. I also collect Japanese Type Coins. As with the US Type Coins I am to the point where the remaining coins are more than I'm willing to pay. Some Japanese Type Coins that are certified are extremely hard to find. I have collected coins "off and on" for around 36 years now. I am a dentist in the US Air Force and am stationed at Shaw AFB, South Carolina. I have lived in Japan for over 16 years and is the reason I collect Japanese Type Coins.
darktone 37  WI I collect mostly mint state coins from the early 1800's to the early 1900's. I don't collect modern coins at all except my 1972 double die. The only circulated coin I have is a 1942/1 mercury dime I really like the over date.I have collected since I was about six years old but only seriously collected for about twenty years. I do not collect state quarters and I avoid reading or listening to any talk about them as far as I am concerned they are only worth a quarter. Not trying to put anybody down they just bore me. I am a self employed auto mechanic so feel free to ask me any car questions . Mike
Dawg144   I'm assembling a set of PCGS certified Franklin halves, looking especially for high quality toned examples with FBLs. I'm also working on filling a 7070 with mid-grade cherrypicks, and I plan to accompany the album with a PCGS draped bust type set. I also have a liking for Australian material, and am beginning to extend that interest to other British imperial issues.

djt 41  OH I'm working on a set of white, evenly matched with cartwheel luster Washington Quarters (32-64). Although I haven't created a registry set the stats are currently [65% complete, 65.19 average grade. I have been working on this set for a number of years and have managed to buy most of my coins raw ($3-$10) and submitted to PCGS with grades mostly at 65 & 66. Lately I've been buying from eBay, Heritage and Superior. I plan on finishing the set with an average grade of 65+ and then selling it to begin a type set of Bust coins in VG/F. I'm also putting together a type/variety set of Seated coins and a 20th Century type set of PCGS MS66 coins.

dsessom 40  OK I began collecting again in 2008. I had collected coins when I was 12-15 years old and lost interest. I found some circulated early 20th century coins in an old box, which sparked my interest again a few years ago. I collect all US coins, but have a love for Barber coins, V Nickels, Morgan and Trade dollars, and early copper. I am most knowledgable in the V (Liberty) nickel series, and had a decent collection of MS examples until selling them in mid 2009. I do plan on building a new set one day, but I am currently working on a US Type set which is 85% complete as of Feb 2010.

flaminio 43  CA My core collection is commemoratives, both modern and classic. I'm also working on a type set, and a few other eccentricities.
Flash 43  CA I am working on a U.S. Type Set with grades in the AU-MS range until I get into the early 19th and 18th century stuff. Then I'll have to give a little bit on the grades (ok.. alot!) depending on prices. I'm also working on a complete collection of U.S. Mint-issued Uncirculated and Proof Sets in addition to a complete Lincoln set.. mostly grades F-AU, but also MS grades for the more recent issues. To add a little spice to my life, I'm also working on a mint-state early commemorative type set. I live in Lakeside, CA (San Diego area) and work as a Business Manager for a used car dealership/credit union auto-buying service in La Mesa, CA. In addition to collecting coins I also collect pre-1972 Coca Cola memorabilia. I am divorced with a daughter who is 22 years old.

FoundingFather 35  NY I collect colonial coins. They tell the story of America's pregnancy and birth. "Freedom Coins" baby! I am a pro-rights patriot and I really enjoy the history beyond the mere surface of each coin. These first true American coins are what I refer to as "Screw The King Money." The backup expression for my collection is "Tyranny PunkSlap Money." Heh.

Gilbert 42  PA Primarily, Morgan silver dollars (by series and limited varieties, particularly those minted in Philadelphia bearing the date of 1878); Franklin half dollars (mint state and Proof); silver Washington quarters (mint state and Proof). Eventually, I will collect the following U.S series: quarters, half dollars, silver Commemoratives and selected other individual U.S. coins. I respect and admire many series and type, am not limited in my collecting goals, and imagine there are really no coins the DO NOT appeal to me; NOTHING is off limits.
gmarguli 29  CA I'm putting together a complete set (144 coins & 2 Norse Medals) of colorfully toned commemoratives.

The appearance and color is the most important feature, not grade, but nothing below MS60. Currently the set averages well over MS65 with only 2 coins grading below that. I'm NOT a PCGS snob, so all grading services are represented.

The current highlight is an OUTRAGEOUSLY toned GWC

I'm always looking to acquire COLORFULLY toned commemoratives.

goyankeez 23  NY My main collection/interest is 1950-1970 cameo proof coinage. I have an almost complete set of silver Roosevelt dime proofs in high grades. Although most are not DCAM, I'm happy with the cameo contrast on all of them. I'm just starting the nickel proofs, and am looking at clad dimes. My side collections/interests lie everywhere else. I'm starting on a U.S. major type coin set in circ. grades. The more I look at these old coins in the books, the more I want them all!! Before I'm finished with this type set, I'll probably be starting another one. I've been collecting on and off for around 10 years. I've been spending some serious time and money on this hobby for a year now. I LOVE IT.

HansMoleman 31  IL I like collecting coins the old fashioned way. I collect all sorts of old US coins. If I like the coins I find, I buy them. I don't like the new plastic cases they come in these days. I don't depend on the grades on the new cases either. I don't care if a case says MS-67 or MS-68. If I like it and the price isn't too high for how the coin looks, I buy it. If not I don't. It's as simple as that.

ironhorse19   WY Everything. High interest in seaching for varieties and errors.
islemangu 42  GU I enjoy collecting all US type coins. My favorites are toned Morgans, Buffalo nickels and proof barber halves. My Grandfather planted the coinbug seed in me when I was 8 years old. Was an avid numismatics reader and coin hustler/trader/buyer all the way into high school. Dropped out of coins in the 80s while focusing then on college, then carreer and then family. Returned to enjoying coins in the 90s to present. Also collect/raise/nurture different types of tropical bonsai trees and cockatiel birds as pets.

JAMERICON 28  NJ Collecting since I was 11, my tastes have changed over the last few years. Went from accumulator to collector. My interest parallels both coins and currency. I concentrate on US Type coins, mostly key and better dates, in circulated to high MS grades. Eye appeal is the key! As for currency, I specialize in $5 small-size notes. My goal is to have a complete type set by Friedberg numbers with Oakes and Schwartz varities. I firmly believe that the best thing a numismatist can do is educate themselves and buy what they like.
jd4science 12  ID I really collect whatever i can get my hands on and afford. I am currently saving for a 1908 no motto st. guadens which is taking all my money for now. Other hobbies include astrophotography,and drawing.I have a 34th finest ms lincoln set.Thanks for reading!!!
jdbcoin MN I am currently working on a collection of Buffalo nickels and S.L. quarters in MS condition. Progress is slow, but steady. I have been interested in collecting coins since 1982 when the "new" Lincoln cents came out, which is funny because I don't like Linc cents. I don't like any modern coins and try to stay as far away from them as possible.
jdp2 42  GA I have been collecting for about 30 years now. I collect for a while and really get into it and then don't for a while. I collect Jefferson nickels, proof sets and silver eagles. I have all the proof sets since 1960 and am kind of proud of that. My nickel collection is complete, I am upgrading now. I am also putting together a MS set of the state quarters. Since my nickel collection is complete I guess I will start collecting the dimes and quarters. I do have a penny collection but there is no way to complete it. The key dates are just way out of my league.
Jeffrey 41  MD I used to collect Morgan dollars. I'm now losing most of the Morgans and am doing some type collecting. All of my new acquisitions are in PCGS slabs, mostly in the $50 - $200 range.
jessewvu 29  MD I collect modern coins, commemorative, ASE's, and special mint sets. I am starting to move backwards in time from now. Modern coins are nice because of the strong strikes and many different designs. I would love to complete a 1909 Mint Set in the next few years in MS63 or better, where I can.
jfoot13 57  CT love buff and jefferson varieties... especially fond of war nickel RPM's ( so much for an 11 coin set ) lately I've been drawn to the beauty of the cameo franklin..
jhar 36  NC Silver Dollars are my favorites, Morgans most of all, although other series sometimes catch my eye, such as Buffalo Nickels, Bust Halves, and Lg Cents. I want to get into VAM collecting especially. I am also allways on the lookout for books to add to my tiny Numismatic library.

JLW 45  CA I collect circulated Lincoln cents, Unc. Franklin halves, Unc. and proof silver Eagles, circulated Walking Liberty halves, Morgan dollars, Commemoratives,(old and new), Proof sets, Mint sets and have recently started acquiring higher-grade certified coins.

jmp81 DC I am collecting dollars from 1900-present. I am trying to connect the history of the 20th century with the minting of dollars. Collecting Morgans and Peace dollars in mint state where I can afford them. For the Ikes and SBAs, I am collecting the highest grades I can afford. I am collecting SACs from the mint... will not collect graded SACs. Years from now when everything is collected, I will create a CD of photos and history to place with the coins. All of this to pass on to a grandson who was born July 9, 2001.
joeforex 27  NY I really enjoy modern US coins. As i do appreciate the beaty of coins from the past I prefer coins and notes that circulated, or currently circulate.

joemon2 49  MO I collect Morgan dollars and am currently working on a set of Walkers in MS64 or better (1934-1947). Really like toned coins, especially Morgan and Peace dollars. I am also putting together a 20th century type set so there is always something I'm looking to add to my collection.
jpumper 55  CA Mostly unc Morgans,working on key dates in any modern US coinage. Love unc Walkers and Lincoln's. Have complete sets of lincolns, jeffs, mercs, Wash, Walkers, I would love to complete my Morgans with at least a AU 95. Invest in gold and silver yet love the numismatic value of a good Coronet or St Gauden.
JR CA I've started several Registry Sets and have put together the #1 Mint State Silver Eagle Registry set and I'm aiming for a top 10 spot in the Proof Franklin Half dollar series too. Once I crossover a few coins, I should make it there.

I like most all proof coins and I have collected coins in a wide variety of series. I've just recently started collecting PCGS and NGC certified Kennedy proof Half-dollar coins with the goal of putting together a complete set. I want to someday soon own one excellent certified Morgan Silver Dollar.

For fun, I have been collecting raw Jefferson nickels (all dates, mintmarks and varieties) in hopes of putting together a complete high-grade raw uncirculated coin set. I also collect most any uncirculated MS and proof modern coins (raw and certified) that catch my interest.

jtryka 32  OR I like anything pretty, especially classical US gold coins (the bigger and heavier the better). I have been working on a certified MS type set, and I always like adding to my gold coin collection (currently saving state quarters for the purchase of a MS-63 to MS-65 Type 1 Lib $20, probably a SSCA or Brother Jonathan). I have also started to put together a set of Washington quarters in circulated condition in an effort to recapture the fun of collecting from my childhood, without all the stress of grading, slabs and registry sets! This is supposed to be fun right? Oh, and I also really enjoy sponsoring grading contests on the board!

Julian 58  MD I have been a full time dealer since 1965 and came to the realization in the early 70's that I could not collect what I deal in. My clients would not want to hear that this item is for my collection. That said, I do have collections of currency with low serial #'s 00000081, 82, 84, but I would sell them if anyone was interested. I mostly satisfy my collecting urges with the knowledge that the collections that I help build are to an extent, mine, so I "collect through my clients' collections". It is cheaper and nearly as enjoyable.

kryptonitecomics 33  FL I pretty much collect all US coin Series except for 3 Cent Silvers, 3 Cent Nickels, Shield Nickels and Half Cents. I am currently concentrating on Key and Semi-key coins from each of the modern series. I don't pass up on a good deal no mater what the grade, but I tend to stick to only Certified coins were the keys are concerned. I enjoy searching flea markets and shows for coins as you never know what you are going to come across. I have tried several times to put together a Registry set, but my tastes vary so often I never stick with anything long enough to finish a set. My favorite coins are Liberty Head Nickels, followed closely by Seated Dimes and Half Dimes, and Mercs. My newest interest is in collecting toned Morgan Silver Dollars. I am a super collector and I have at least 8 to 10 hobbies other than coins and I love my Corvette.

I really want to buy old gold but, can only afford the occasional $2.50 piece or something under $300. I have too many mouths to feed to go overboard. I may also sell a few on the bay to go after the ones I really want. Anyway, that's pretty much it.

Leodinus 23  CA I collect anything U.S. that is obsolete. I love the older coins (late 1700s, early 1800s), but they bite into my budget hard. I'm working on getting a gold coin of each type, but the $20 is killing me :D. I'm now in the market to start buying and selling, but I find it so hard to part with them.

mrpaseo 34  TN I'm up in the air right now as to what I collect, I'm about finished with my Circ Merc collection (Two left) and all but stalled on my Lincoln sets (Due to many of the coins going bad in the holders). The two deployments put a damper on my research and with an upcomming move, I may be just dabbling in stuff that catches my eye.
ms70   NJ I have started toward the goal of a U.S. Type set by coin/decade/mint. For example: Roosevelt Dimes, one coin from each decade they were made, examples spanning all the mints they were made at. Emphasis is more toward exceptional eye appeal than rarity. I love original coins, white or beautifully toned. I also have collected some "Types" & "Varieties" that I took a liking to such as 3 legged Buffalos! Who doesn't love them?!! Lastly, I also enjoy metal detecting. No newsworthy finds as of this writing but all the change I dig up is dedicated toward the purchase of new coins for my collection. My advice for new collectors: Get educated! There's much to learn in this great hobby!

Pcunix 66  MA When I was quite young, I inherited what I now realize was a partial U.S. Type set that my grandfather had. That sparked my interest, and I began collecting coins, a hobby which continued for almost 30 years. At one time I did some small time dealing at local shows. The amount of dishonesty and deception turned me off and I sold everything I owned and gave it all up for another thirty years. I now regret that and am buying the coins that I remember from that type set. Unfortunately some have gone up so much in price that I'll have to settle for lesser grades, but I'm trying to get as close as I can. It's a weird way to collect, because I'll pass over some coins not because they are too expensive but just because they don't match my memory.

If I get lucky in the grading of my items, I might dig deeper and really get more in depth of collecting.

I was the first (& still the only) person in PCGS registry history to complete all 12 of the Lincoln registry sets. PCGS has since added the 09-VDB DD to the 09-58 variety set & now I'm only 99.33% complete in that set - but my sets are still more complete than anyone else's. I completed all those sets in less than 1 year. I've since sold ALMOST all of them (but not the big DD's) off for a small profit & intend to do it all again this year.

See my Registry sets on PCGS under "Roger's Coins" & on NGC under "redcents".

If you have a coin that "fits", let us know what it is and how much or if you are interested in one of ours please make an offer.

BTW, I HAVEN'T been banned from the message boards, but HAVE been prevented from posting due to my truth telling (since corroborated by Russ in the "Isn't this registry abuse?" thread) that no one wanted to hear - oh well. Feel free to e-mail (ttsd@hotmail.com) or call me.

One goal I have set for myself is to buy the complete sets [mint,clad and silver] of the state quarter program.I also buy U.S. currency.My prize bills are an 1899 Black Eagle $1 in XF and a 1917 FRN $2 Jefferson in XF.It is a shame they don't make bills like that any more. I dabble in foreign coins but refrain from any major purchase until I can learn more.
sn3nut 55  OK A varied mix including a little of anything I find interesting ... although for the past couple of years I have been concentrating on Proof Jefferson Nickels. I have a few Morgans, some gold, a complete 1949 mint set (my birth year), and some commems. I also have some of the modern gold, silver and platinum proof eagles. Almost all of my better coins are in PCGS slabs, but I still have boxes of mint and proof sets from the 50's thru the 80's and several Whitman folders I worked on as a kid. I have been collecting, on and off, for about forty years. I have three sets currently in the PCGS Set Registry.

spyponder   ME Primarily any series prior to it being "presidentialized". Starting in 1909 through 1948 the designs of our coins, in my opinion, became very ordinary compared to those minted previously.

stev32k 64  AL I collect mostly type coins and am fond of Trade Dollars, Bust Halves, and almost all older proofs. I've started hording AU58 Trade Dollars and Bust halves. I also collect DMPL Morgans, and some U.S. Mint products. I also like 1837 no stars dimes and half dimes.
STONE 18  IL I am a collector of all U.S. coin types. My numismatic goal is to have a complete collection of regular strike (MS-type) U.S. coins from 1793 to Present. Grades don't matter a lot to me right now as long as the coin hasn't been harshly cleaned, damaged, or holed. My interest right now is focused on Pre 1840 U.S. coins (1793-1840). Once this goal is achieved, or 90% achieved, I plan to focus on key date Seated coins and so on. I'm not a huge fan of slabbed coins and thus my collection doesn't revolve around having coins in slabs, but I understand their importance as a coin preservation and authentication unit. Raw coins allow more versatility to my viewing of them. I'm not concerned with die varieties or rare errors as of yet. Below is a breakdown of my collection: Bust type: 47/410 coins (11.49%) Seated type: 58/480 coins (11.76%) Barber type: 224/261 coins (85.82%) All other type: 493/722 coins (68.28%) Modern type: 198/1098 coins (18.03%) Total: 1018/2971 coins (34.26%)

I've made pretty good progress, except there is some work left in the Barbers (dimes, quarters, and halves). While they aren't all great coins, it is pretty complete from the civil War to the present in most denominations: I'm starting to document the collection here!

I have been collecting since I recieved a Sears and Roebuck coin collecting kit from Santa Clause at the age of 12. I dont think to this date that I have ever sold a coin, just a pure collector with a passion for learning all I can about us coins especially toned US Silver and look forward to soaking up knowledge from members of this board. Where I am currently located in NE Ga there are is only one shop in SC across the state line that I can frequent and no clubs to lean on for help and info. I hope to publish a book called TONERS about different types of toning with examples of the good, the bad and the ugly and the do's and dont's, this is a goal and will be a slow work in progress.

TRADERBOBZ 38  ID I collect a wide variety of us coinage,started out with morgan silver dollars and yes beleive it or not 1 of my first coins to the set of dollars was the 1895 proof(cert)ofcourse.my wife says i have a addictive behavior( :) ) whatever i start collecting,or doing i do with a attitude or 100%.after much hardship in the last year,i am sad to say i have no morgan dollars left in my collection(out of 3 sets 1 being complete with the 1895 proof). and now i am starting over collecting cents(lincoln)thought it would be cheaper to do rather than jumping into ms-65 or better morgans again :(. but you know the fun is in the hunt,and when you do complete a set or 3 sets of something(atleast for me) it only wants you to start over with something else again and again,so yea you would say i am a avid collector!even if sometimes life is shitty and you have to sell everything you have to stay alive,and keep the family going,i dont mind again its the thrill of the hunt for me,i dont think anyone would like to go hunting at a petting zoo? anyway i collect what i can afford and enjoy the people i meet along the way.

usarok 53  AP AP in the state is correct, it stands for Area Pacific it's part of the US Military APO address for those stationed in Korea and elsewhere in the Pacific Theater. It also helps explain my forum ID, USAROK. I'm from the USA and part of the US Forces here in the Republic of Korea (ROK). My main collecting interest is to complete a 50 piece early commemorative type set with coins primarily in the grades of MS65 or better, possessing exceptional eye appeal, and preferably nicely toned. I'm also working on a 20 piece USA-Philippines Type Set and my Birth Year Mint Set. Although it doesn't fit into any of the previously mentioned sets, my favorite coin is the PCGS AU50 1794 Head of 1794 Sheldon 31 Large Cent that I added to my collection in January 2005. The beauty and history of this coin just fascinates me.
