Never a complete set

Coins-United States | CoinLady

I've always been a fan of type collecting. Finding one of each basic design type can teach a collector so much coin history, American history, something about mintage, metals and art. There is also the possibility of finding a new collecting interest. When you find a pretty two-cent piece, or another different coin, you may learn more about this series and decide to pursue it.

Whatever you like

Assembling a type collection is more than just filling holes in an album. There are the basic types to collect, such as Shield nickels, Mercury dimes, and so forth. But what to include in a type set? It would depend on how many years and how much you want to include.

Small eagles are special

Coins-United States | CoinLady

Type collectors know that the hardest-to-find type is the small eagle type, used on silver coins from 1795-98. Half dimes, dimes, quarters, half dollars, and dollars used this motif. The eagle is shown sitting on a cloud, holding its head high, surrounded by a wreath.

Type set surprise

Coins-United States | CoinLady

I've always been a big fan of type collecting. Numismatists are often told to specialize in one series. But a type set has much to offer. It's a real artifact of history. A collector can learn about mintage figures, art, design, metals, and even become interested in a new series to collect.
