About This Set: This collection was started by Bernie putting aside an 1890 dime he found in circulation around 1940. He married Doris in 1951. These are my parents. The collection is named after them, in their honor. They are not with us anymore.

After receiving the 1890 dime, I acquired the rest of the dimes. Bernie supplied the most important part, the inspiration!

The collecting strategy here is to buy the toughest dates first as budget allows!

Looks like you have most of the tough dates. That's the smart way to start a set. Now start filling in those easier dates. Nice set!!

Was looking at your Seated Dime set and noticed that the 1878-CC is the shattered rev. F104 variety. You have a lot of the key dates out of the way. Are you going to finish the rest. I did have at one time all of the basic set and most of the varieties then sold some off and haven't bought some of the keys back. Collecting All Dimes All Varieties...it is a slow process. Good luck in your collecting.

Very nice start on a great set. I would put that 1890 in because it was given to me by my father and started the set.
