    Is it only full steps that matter or are you somehow less of a collector if you have some coins (maybe more than some) with worn steps but a fine obverse?
    I enjoy seeing the proofs with the mirror finish...just beautiful.
    But somehow some of these worn coins that have obviously been around the block are still a thrill for me to find in a roll... especially the pre-1950 stuff. Here is what I think is one of my best finds. No FS but just a nice coin.

    I could buy it (FS) but the fun I think is in the hunt.

    I’d love to hear opinions from some seasoned collectors. Thanks

    Full steps are very rare.
    1939-D is a good coin. Second lowest mintage after the 1950-D I believe.
    $7 in F-12.

    Great find! I have always collected for my own enjoyment and good finds always have thrilled me. If you can fill a Whitman Album with the whole series with this being the base grade you will have some serious bragging rights. Anyone can grab one in a 2x2 somewhere but to do it solely by going through rolls is a serious collector in their own right.

    Thanks. It gave me incentive to keep going for that 1950-d

    The only thing that really matters is what makes you happy. Keep what you like and know that your tastes will evolve as you go.
