Everything came across just fine. I'll start working on developing a new page for Cuba this weekend and then update the Philippines. Awesome work and appreciate the help!

Let me know if the files uploaded ok. Feel free to edit according to your taste. I tried to do in your formate.

Thanks, Mike

Thanks Mike, additions are always welcome. I created the following page so you can upload the two files http://typesets.wikidot.com/cuba simply scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the "Files" link and that should allow you to upload the files.

I have put together 2 Excel templates for type collecting for Cuba Republic, Pre-1962 and for U.S. Administration period for the Philippines. I have completed type sets for both and am willing to upload the templates for others to use. Let me know if interested.

What are the three letters on the reverse, just right of the letter R and below the eagle's tail. Who or what do they represent or signify?

There is not a lot of collector demand for Israeli coinage so prices are low. I've seen uncirculated pieces sell around $2 and extremely high grades for around $5 and as high as $7.

I have the type 2 1980 20th anniversary 5 pound piece in a labeled coin protecting pouch. Was wondering how much it is worth?

Thanks for putting this list of "coins with ships" together. This list is exactly what I was looking for—two thumbs up!

It's up to the collector but the most common method is to have just one commemorative. Many collectors have one example of the following:

Silver Commemorative Half Dollar
Modern Silver Commemorative Dollar (post 1980)
Modern Silver Commemorative Half Dollar (post 1980)
Silver Bullion Dollar

Of course nothing is engraved in stone so it is still up to your taste

Re: Silver Commemoratives by Ken KashKen Kash, 02 Sep 2015 19:44

I have completed a 1850 to 2015 coin type set collection and am working on another. Are Silver Commemoratives included in a type set, such as the 50 cent 1918 Lincoln or the 1925 Stone Mountain? Trying to find more than a few of these in an XF or better condition is an expensive proposition. Is anyone including these in their type set? Any thoughts on the subject?

Welcome Claykan :)

Great thing about type sets there are no rules, collect what you want and display how you want. There is no wrong way but I will help where I can if you have questions.

Regards,
Ken

I've been collecting coins for many years, but got to the point that I was becoming bored. So I took a look at "Type Set Collecting" and quickly became hooked. What a breath of fresh air. Happily I ran across this website and its wealth of information. I'm still learning the basics of Type Set Collecting so hopefully won't bore anyone with any questions I might have in the future.

Claykan

You are welcome. Its just a base do folks like yourself can adjust it to what you need.

Best of Luck,
Ken

Needs a bit of tweaking but perfect for the way I wanted to store my typeset.

I just grabbed the 2x2 template for my 20th Century US TS. Thanks, this is nice!

You can try using (experiment) kointain shells, they might be thin enough to use Mylar slides. Another idea is using air-tire capsules but the thickness would prevent use of Mylar slides so entire section would have to be capsules.

Possibly why you are not looking for, have you considered using Danscos coin stock album (#7000)? BTW, love the passion for the hobby :)

Re: I'm in love... by Ken KashKen Kash, 01 Aug 2014 09:08

I am a huge huge huge type collector. I don't like collecting just one coin or series as I get bored with it, I mean I love Walking Liberty Halves and Standing Liberty Quarters and Buffalo nickels but I just get bored collecting the same coin over and over and over.

I have done three different US type sets a 7070 and the Whitman 20th Century album for each of my boys. I was thinking of doing one for myself to in MS grade as its not an overly expensive set and I have been thinking of also doing the Whitman 20th and 21st century album too that is even easier to do as they took out all the varieties like the t1 standing liberty quarter and t1 buffalo. I have also thought about doing the littleton US type album and looking into other albums.

But my new project is I decided to start a crowns of the world type set. That's how I found this website as I was doing research for the different crowns of the world. I am going to mix it with a modern bullion of the world theme. So say you have a 1890's jubilee UK crown but you also have a UK Brittania coin or Canadian Maple Leaf and a Canadian Dollar or a Morgan dollar and a Silver Eagle. Mixing the modern with the ancient.

I think the Dansco crowns of the world album will be the album I go with but what a pain of an album. It has 5 pages a 36mm, 38mm, 39mm, 40mm and 42mm page. The 36mm seems almost worthless as the Canadian dollar is the only 36mm I could find, I might ditch it for a 37mm page an then I can at least put in the Peruvian Sol and the Austrian Philharmonic on the page. Has anyone done this? Problem is the dimensions on a lot of the coins for example the New Zealand Crown is 38.61mm so would you try and cram that in the 38mm page or have it loosely sit in the 39mm page. Same say with the Silver Eagle thats 40.66mm do you try and fit it in the 40mm page or do you buy a 41mm page. Anyway know of way to add a little filler so a coin wouldn't slide if you went up to the bigger page.
