Thanks Dennis for posting this. I just assumed I was subscribed for these at the mint and was wondering why I hadn't received them. I got last years by subscription. Turns out I was somehow 'unsubscribed' from the program. I don't know how the devil that happened, but I went in and resubscribed.
Lovely set dear fellow.
Happy I could help. I get these for my grand daughters as gifts.
Wow. Nice. Sure looks like a 65 to me.
I doubt that I'll ever be able to afford the 1793 Half Cent, the Chain Cent, the Half Disme, the 1796 Quarter, the 1796-97 Draped Bust Small Eagle Half Dollar, or the Gobrecht Dollar. Excluding those coins I am but four 19th century coins and four 20th century coins away from completing the type set. https://www.ngccoin.com/registry/competitive-sets/419597/
I like that early Seated stuff!
have to buy a key date, but I did. Dad’s birthyear, too.
Very nice. I've been looking for a ND half for some time now in the VF-30 to EF-45 range. Pretty elusive and when found are quite pricey. Yours is very attractive.
Thank you. In a similar vein as your search for a ND Half Dollar, I've been hunting for a nice 1800-1805 Half Dime. It's also a tough coin to find in a decent non-detail condition. Good luck with your search.
In my old 1798-2000 nongold type set, it was that Draped Bust half dime that gave me the most trouble. Everything affordable looked like roadkill, while the rest available were untouchable AU and MS coins.
There was nothing in between the junk and gems. Simply no nice affordable VG-VF “collector grade” coins without problems available. People must hang on to those. I finally settled on a slightly bent but straight graded ANACS G6, even though the goal for the rest of my set was F12 and up.
Well, they are out there. I just ran across this at last summer's FUN show. Saw it and snapped it up even though I wasn't specifically looking for it at this show. Sometimes dealers ask me "What are you looking for?" I say "Targets of opportunity."
If it had a D I be very sick...
