Default 19th century

If you were going to start collecting a 19th century set or subset, which would it be? Or, what is your favorite 19th century issue?

Default I think

N173s can be astoundingly beautiful. Hard to think of something like a "complete set" -- but even a modest collect of N173s would be extra ordinary!

I've always liked the Mayo set. To me the design is gorgeous.

IMO nothing better than the Old Judge (N172) set. You know you are never going to finish it so if you are a completist it ain't for you but you can approach it in so many ways and there are so many price levels that almost anyone can have an OJ collection of one kind or another. It can be pretty addictive though.

Jeff,

Don't recall ever seeing any!

Lone Jack Cigs, because I am a native and life-long Virginian, and the Lone Jacks relate to Lynchburg, VA, where some of my wife's relatives reside. I hope to some day acquire an example for my type collection.

Default Without A Doubt..

...it's the N172 set.

I have no aspirations to even attempt to complete a set, but I can easily chase items in this set for the rest of my life and amuse myself for the next twenty+ years.

There is just such breadth and depth that it is an enormously entertaining pursuit.

Default Why Not Go For The Best

There is not set rarer than Four Base Hits.

We only know of three collectors who have three more examples.

Go for it. It will be the investment you ever made

N690 Kalamazoo Bats. Their oversized & beautiful!!! I'm normally a portrait guy
but the images on the K Bats are some of the best from the 19th century imo.
