Type set question

Numis-maniac's
    I am working on a type set of 20th century issues, and am wondering if a
collection with all of the coins grading exactly the same is worth more i.e.
all coins MS-63 or if they are all about the same, ranging from MS-62 to
MS-67.

Thanks
Zemmy

Such sets are rarely sold as a single item, so the value is
largely determined by the values of the individual pieces.

A matched high grade set might be sold either by denomination
or by series and fetch a premium price.  This means that the
coins are matched for grade, toning, strike, and luster.

The best bet is to put together the set that you will enjoy
looking at.  If you are trying to make money, a mutual fund
will do much better.
