Set Description:

Uncirculated Indians. I got into Indian collecting as a measure of retribution after I spent $130 of my 13th birthday money in 1982 at Merri-Seven Coins in Livonia Michigan. I asked "Lucky Leo" for the best coin in the house for the money and he sold me an 1888 indian cent which I treasured for years. Some 40 years later I learned from NGC it was whizzed and only worth $30 in present day money. Whizzed coins were certainly in vogue then but he should have done a little better for a 13 year old.
I don't care so much about red vs red brown (I have quite a few nice red coins, but I think "red" RBs are a much better value in the long run given clear grading inconsistencies). I have some RBs that are more red than many of my Reds. I try to concentrate on mark free surfaces regardless of color and buy a lot of EE or CAC coins (if only for the 2nd opinion) and have got lucky a few times, notably my 1908 which is one of the best few surviving. Still don't know how I got it for under $5,000. I have also had a few bad days, which I will try to ameliorate in the coming years. One memorable example looked great on the HA website and showed up with a nice fingerprint across the obverse that had been heretofore invisible and unmentioned. Anyway, a much more rewarding and interesting pursuit than just buying paper!
