One of the nice things about type sets is that you can define what goes in it - problem is, they are never finished.

3/3

Of course I had to add a couple of commemoratives. First just a classic or two or three or four, then a modern or two - very addictive.

I'm never really finished with these halves.  Picked this one up today and I think it makes a nice addition.

 

 

I just purchased a Texas half myself. I think they are one of the more majestic commems. My dream set of halves for the Dansco type set are:

 

Texas (have one)

San Deigo Pan Pacific (have one)

Oregon Trail

Gettysburg

 

I am halfway there. The Oregon trail is very doable, the Gettysburg is going to pinch the pocketbook quite a bit. I had considered the Missouri half as it is my home state, but I don't like the design as much.

 

I find myself looking at Capped bust and seated liberty halves a great deal. barber halves, for some reason, leave me cold. High grade examples are too expensive for what I find to be a truly boring coin.

 

Anyways, great type set!

I don't know if everyone experiences this, but I found my tastes changing about the Barbers, I started to like them a lot - especially VF+ grades.

 

The seateds, on the other hand, I am cooling on a bit - maybe because of all the pseudo types (arrows, motto, all combinations etc..)

 

Used to be blah on Franklins, but I like them a lot now too!
