    All you perfectionists out there don't be too hard on me ;), I know there is a lot of culls here and some are really ugly... my standards didn't used to be very high lol...

    I started compiling this set a couple years ago with the idea that it was just going to be a date set and therefore didn't matter what condition they were in as long as they had a legible date and I could get them cheap... A lot of these are culls (damaged, holed, corroded, etc)
    So far I haven't paid more than $50 for any one of these, and 70% of them have been under $12 (you get discounts for culls)

    Well as I got further into it I decided that I wanted nicer examples of all of them (and some of the major varieties and overdates) and so I have slowly been phasing out the culls for better grade examples and will continue to do so as time (and funds) allow. ;)
    Thanks for looking!

    It cost just as much to buy one of those replicas as a decent draped bust LC... I can't stand a hole in my collection tho...:p

    Looks great and better yet you are enjoying collecting!!

    Ps I like the air-tites with the gaskets, I have a few large cents I should put them in rather that be kicking around. What size did you get for them, never saw anything listed for large cents?

    I got a box of 100 (31mm) they also came with like 500 foam inserts of different sizes, I just used one of the largest ones and they fit pretty nice, It was like $15 for 100 on ebay, that was a couple years ago, I'm not sure if they're still around for that price but I would imagine somebody's got some ;)
