A few coins that (*gasp!*) aren't made of silver.
Ok, well, I've been really enjoying working on my signature set the last 2 months or so but I also have a few other projects that require a little attention from time to time. It occurred to me the other day that I still had not acquired the new William H. Harrison presidential dollars for my mint state set. I have all the 2007 and the 2008 dollars in MS66 FDI and I don't like to fall too far behind when making sets like this. I also naturally wanted to get the new coins in the same MS66 FDI grade/label. I managed to order just such a pair of coins, a P&D set, and managed to do so before the next coin gets released in May. For both of the first 2 years I didn't buy any of the new issues until the summer.
I'm not complaining about the delays I normally make mind you. I never rush to buy a new mint release immediately after the first graded examples start becoming available. I like to wait for at least a month before I start to even look. Immediately after coins start to become available a frenzy atmosphare sets in and some crazy prices can be achieved. I've never been interested in taking part in that. It usually just takes a couple of weeks before people stop paying the crazy money and I'm usually more than willing to wait that long.
