US CENTS

hi! does anyone else collect cents, (Large and small), for most of their collection? or, do you like cents? (In case you're wondering, CENTS AER AMAZING!!!) but the government wants to get rid of them... :(

 I love cents! My favorite is the flying eagle.

My primary focus is Liberty Nickels, but the set I had the most fun doing was my Large Cents for a Dansco album. Trying to track down all of the different varieties of the dates made if challenging and fun at the same time.

 large cents are cool, but I prefer small cents!

I like all of the cents, large and small. I wish I had done a better job with the large cents before they got so costly but I plan to at least get a few type large cents. I also prefer the flying Eagle...I do like the new shield cents, it seems to hold a very vintage look. Indian heads are undeniably  cool.

 I agree. shield cents are my least favorite, but they're still cool.

As far as the shield cents go, (as well as the memorial cents since 82) I just don't like the new alloy. They are much less durable, wear horribly, the zinc tarnished and they are just, well lame for that reason.
That's probably a double edged sword as one day, the beautiful ones will be harder to come by.

you have a point... anything hard to get in MS70 is really expensive when found!

 Most of my small collection is wheat pennies. I also have some Indian heads, which are probably my favorite coins out of the ones I have. I have other denominations as well.
