Question on Seated Liberty type set

Does this set need six coins or just five???  (Ie, does this set need
the twenty-cent piece as well?)

Thank you very much. :-)

If you're collecting by die variety (e.g. no stars, stars, no drapery,
drapery, obverse legend, stars on reverse, Gobrecht's name below base,
Gobrecht's name on base, etc.) then the answer is neither, there are
more than six types.

If you're collecting by denomination, then you need at least one of
each denomination.

Incidentally, do you consider $1 not to be a US denomination on account
of the US mints not presently making any? And what about half-cents?
Under current US law, you could use a 20-cent coin to pay part of a debt
without needing two of them :-)

This set needs the number of coins that you want to put
into it.

By denomination, there is 5 cents, 10 cents, 20 cent, 25 cents,
50 cents, and 1 dollar.  By significant design change there is

No drapery 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, and 50 cents (with or
without stars on the 5cents and 10 cents, and ignoring the Gobrecht
dollars).

With drapery 5 cents, 10 cents, 25 cents, 50 cents, and dollar.
(dramatic change on 5 cent and 10 cent, more subtle on the 25 cents
and 50 cents).

Obverse legend 5 cents and 10 cents

Reverse with motto 25 cents, 50 cents and dollar

Different from any of the above: 20 cent and trade dollar

So I count anywhere from 6 to 16 coins.  More can be added
if you include all the more minor changes that got made over
the years, such as the temporary addition of arrows at the
date, rays on the reverse, changes in weight, and minor
changes to the portrait.  Some people like to make sure they
have one from each mint, Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans,
Carson City.

Did you ever get a response? If not, the set does include the twenty cent
piece.The Liberty Seated Collectors Club's position is that the trade
dollar is certainly part of that set as well. Good luck on your set if you
decide to undertake this!
