Circulated Or Mint State?

| user_55599

Many new collectors wonder which one is better to collect. Circulated or Mint State. I know I experienced this problem. While I can't personally tell you what to collect, I will say to just collect what you are happy with. Collect within your budget as well. And simply be patient (especially when collecting Mint State coins) Study the coins before you buy. Know what to look for in a coin.
