Difficulty Relative explanation (my own opinion)
Relatively easy to complete, with perhaps about up to 5% which may prove to be difficult or challenging
Moderately difficult to complete with several key dates (perhaps doable over a long period of time)
Extremely difficult to complete with too many key dates or simply too expensive (perhaps need a lottery to finish such type set)

Currently looking for:


I normally don't pay more than 100USD at any one time unless I desperately want it OR the coin that I am looking for is better than what I am looking for. Note: damaged, bent, scratched, holed etc are all fine provided the price is just right for it!
