Complete US Mint Year Set (Foreign and Domestic) – 1907

I’m sure those living in 1907 would not agree, but very little of historical interest outside of numismatics occurred in 1907. Christmas seals were issued early in December and the ball dropped on Time Square for the first time, but other than that, the year was “ho-hum.”

But that wasn’t the case for coinage! Gold’s average price rose 4 cent to $18.94 for the year while silver dropped almost 15 cent to a 55 cent average. Forty US coins were issued and with many of them being gold, the cost of collecting this “birth-year” can be very expensive (not to mention the cost of the pattern coins for 1907!) In addition, 12 foreign coins were minted in theUSand 13 pattern coins are listed in Hewitt Judd’s book named “United States Pattern Coins.” So, good luck and I hope you win the lottery so you can put this great year-set collection together.
