About this set: 2016
I found some incredible high end coins this year which over came Bob's five 69's and moved my set back to number one.
The 1895 in this set is probably the nicest example of this year that exists. It is highly toned and truly amazing. I replaced my 66+DCAM which is also amazing but not like this!
CAC Complete Set!
This set is a major disappointment. A heart breaker.
Morgan's are my favorite. This set was number one of all time for two years. It beat Mr. Simpson's set which has FIVE PR69's. I was able to rank higher by having the best and highest graded DCAMS. In case you are not familiar with PCGS scoring, a DCAM gets two additional points. In MANY cases a lower graded DCAM is rarer than a regular coin in the next grade. So a PR67DCAM can be much rarer than some PR68's. A PR67DCAM used to have the same score as a PR69.
Early this year PCGS decided to give additional points to top pop coins and coins that are tied for the top pop. Mr. Simpson's score went from 68.42 to 69.18 without any of the coins being replaced/upgraded. It is now the top set even though the average grades of the coins are lower than mine. I have the utmost respect for Mr. Simpson and love the coins he buys and his sets. Bob, if you are reading this perhaps you would consider having PCGS remove the top pop extra points and competing with me on an even basis? If not, congratulations. I submit!
