I've always called them Barber nickels. Not sure why. It does beg the question.. "Why are Barber Quarters not called Liberty Head Quarters?

I have all but the Morgan and Peace. I break out the Kennedys into 90% and 40% types, otherwise the list is the same.

Once people started adding pre 20th century coins, I figured I'd do the entire federal series (excluding gold; my list would be one gold coin of any type). I've found about 2/3rds of them. I'd be curious to know what we have done collectively. The rest seem unlikely for me, except for the seated half dime, which is my personal white whale.

Half Cent: Liberty Cap, Left Head (1793)
Half Cent: Liberty Cap, Right Head (1794-1797) - YES
Half Cent: Draped Bust (1800-1808) - YES

I feel confident that God willing, I will someday find a Franklin half, a silver Kennedy half, and a Morgan dollar, but that steel wheat cent scares me!

I am by no means a dirt pro. But when I read the title , I thought it meant a particular coin is more difficult to dig than another. No , it's just a goal or wish list. What I find odd is that nobody really mentions U.S gold coins in their lists.

Stiffwrists,
It seems to me that you left off a common 20th century non-currency silver coin, specifically the silver American Eagle. I haven't found a Peace or Morgan dollar, but I've found an '87 American Eagle near the U. It's an ounce of silver, even if it isn't currency.
I don't ever expect to find a steel cent, except in the coinstar. Maybe the hardest to find is the '64 Kennedy half. Great list. As few silvers as I find each year, I don't expect to ever find them all.

You'd be surprised. You find them in a spill. As long as your machine can find coins in close proximity to ferrous targets, you'll find one eventually. I never thought I'd find one either.
