A substantial accomplishment* that, over time, will only slide in to obscurity having never reached the top ten.
*In my humble opinion anyway.
Well, I finally got as close to the top ten as I ever will with my registry set for "Modern Commemorative Silver Dollars 1983-Date".
My labor of love (read obsession) is 100% complete as of today; simultaneously debuting as a full member of society and reaching the zenith of its existence.
I knew from conception, by its very design, that ever reaching those lofty single digit rankings was not to be its' fate; comprised solely of NGC graded xx69's as it is.
Yet never once did I waver; no other grade would do; nor could I accept the adoption and re-branding of a PCGS coin or two.
So before my baby gets much older and fades into obscurity I?ll do my best to put up pictures and acquisition tale or two.
Just a tidbit: every single coin was purchased on eBay, as are all the coins in my master registry set in Modern Commemoratives 1982-Date, Complete.
Now my attentions turn to the remaining four phases -
Modern Commemoratives 1982-Date, Proofs Only
Modern Commemoratives 1982-Date, Mint State Only
Modern Commemorative Half Dollars 1982-Date
Modern Gold and Platinum Commemoratives 1984-Date
