Complete US Mint Year Set (Foreign and Domestic) – 1935

The depression seemingly neared an end, but as we all know, this was a false rally in what we now know to be a very big bear market. Babe Ruth was traded to the Boston Braves where his career soon ended at the age of 40. Hitler modernized his army by adding the airplane creating his air force. As for good news, the 1st Sugar Bowl and Orange Bowls were played.

This was a good year for collectors as most mints were running at full steam with all making their version of the cent, nickel, dime, quarter and half. When added to the many commemoratives, foreign coins, and two pattern coins, the collectors were busy seeking these coins to fill their collections. And now there were many places to find these coins. From 1929 to the end of 1934, the number of coin shops across the nation increased by 40 fold as Americans tried to turn what few coins they owned into more than face value. With the new stores, the following were the coins the collectors were asking their local coin shop to help them acquire:

  • Lincoln Cent – P, D, & S
  • Buffalo Nickel – P, D, & S plus DD Reverse
  • Mercury Dime – P, D, & S
  • Washington Quarter – P, D, & S
