I have to include my upgrades and additions to this set like 1861, 1878, 1870, and better 1860 and1858 large letters (I don't think the one in the pic is even large letters). I have several AU coins and a 1886 Type II not in the book.

Nice copper everyone, I have not added any new copper so an old one will have to do.

Here's one I picked up for my Dansco album but I can't bring myself to crack it out just yet:

As a gerneral rule I like my copper only one color, red. But seeing as it's almost x-mas this one seems in order. Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone.

Very nice 16 coinbuf.

 

The new dies served their purpose well on your piece.

 

I'm a big fan of beard detail:

I hear you Lee, a well struck/full beard is somewhat like a FH on an SLQ. Not a required for the coin to to be nice but it really adds depth to the look of the coin. Sweet one there Wheat. :)

Beautiful two-cent pieces! I particularly like the color on the 1871.

Thanks. I have a few other nice 2c's, but sometimes they're just difficult to photograph

Thanks. Still a work in progress. This is my second time working on the 09-58 wheat cents.

 

My first set had some super nice examples in it.

 

Seller's regret now.

I hope to cure that by never selling. That may make me a hoarder though

When I upgraded, I'd sell the coin replaced.

 

Used the funds to continue the set.

A final 2015 pic and might as well make it a first year coin at that.

Pretty low buck compared to most of these but this is for my 1917 date set.
