Sir Sisu Posted November 22, 2005 Report Share Posted November 22, 2005 A while back I decided that in addition to my Finnish coin collection, my other long term collection will be for crown and crown-size coins. Though I have piked up some 19th century stuff recently, I am going to focus on the 20th first. Here is a list that I compiled of the coins that I will look to completet my set. There are some basic definitions that I gave to what I am looking to get. Some of the samples that I have chosen do not neatly fall within these rules, but for almost all of them I worked out a reason why I feel it is justified to be in the collection that I am after. I will not explain individual cases now, but if someone is curious about a particular inclusion, feel free to ask. The general definitions: -Business strikes i.e. non-proof/proof-like -silver -minimum 20g -in general I avoided commems dating after the 1960s, when silver was no longer used in circulating coins -MAIN types included; types with very minor design changes were often bulked together The list is organized alphabetically and them by Krause #. There are some "AND"s & "OR"s for some where I have bulked types together. The grades listed are the ranges that I hope to get them in. I may have to adjust these when I confront actual prices. I used the Krause prices as a rough starting guide. For example an "XF-UNC" means that for a certain date I may have to settle for an XF, whereas a different date in the series might be affordable in UNC. The indented red ones listed I already have. When I complete this someday, I will move on to the 19th century. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
