I'm curious as to how some of you US Type Set collectors might answer these
1. The portrait of JFK on the Kennedy half dollar has been significantly
and noticeably modified from its design of the 1960s. (Frankly, I don't
think it looks much like JFK anymore, but that's another issue.) Do you
consider this new portrait to be a different collectible type coin for your
US type set? If you do collect the new portrait as a separate type, do you
also collect the different portrait varieties of the Lincoln cent?
2. I checked Google, and there was some discussion here back in 1999 of
whether or not statehood quarters should be included in a US type set. Like
the bicentennial coins, statehood quarters are commemorative issues, but,
then again, most type set albums include bicentennial coins. Do you include
statehood quarters in your US type set?
3. The list of type coins needed to fill my old Whitman albums is different
from the list of coins needed for my Eagle albums. I, of course, reserve the
right to collect whatever I want, but I am curious as to whether there's a
definitive list of US type coins somewhere?
