Coin: Like it's 1999

Introducing "Coin" Collection
Over the weekend, I finished up my renewed United States coin collection. I sorted through over $14 in pennies over three days, using a several step process. Each column represents a decade; eventually, I take each decade and sort in rows representing individual years and columns representing different mint marks. Once I have the individual year/mark stacks, I sort through each stack for the "best" coin -- least dings and dents, deepest imprint, strongest details, most legible letters, etc.
I used a similar process for nickels, dimes, and quarters as well ... a painstaking process, but I'm very happy with the results.
Anyway, when I had these stacks laid out for the pennies, the resulting arrangement really caught my eye, so I took a few pictures.
