I would recommend doing this:
Regular and star from 1928 plain to 1928B.. Regular only on 1928C to 1928E.
Regular and star on 1934 through 1957B
1935 plain regular and mule
1935A regular and mule.
And be done with it after that which would be quite an achievement.
Larry, your list actually mirrors what I am collecting in the $1 Silver Certificate department. It's not something I trumpet very often, but I am quietly putting together sets that are similar to many of your lists above. Great minds must think alike, huh?
I agree, shorter, more targeted collections in the $1 denomination are more fun. When it comes to collecting every variety, type, series, etc....there are simply too many notes.
I am doing the same thing with $1 FRN's. Just 1963-1963B. Nothing more.
