About this set: CAC Complete Set! It is my opinion that a "Top Set Of All Time" must meet three criteria. First, each coin should be graded by PCGS the most respected and conservative grading service. PCGS coins in most cases bring much higher prices at auction and in the general marketplace. Second a “Top Set Of All Time” should have the CAC sticker on all of the coins which states that the coin is "solid or at the top of its grade". Third most if not all coins should also have "eye appeal". It is easy to spend whatever it takes and simply "buy the grade". However, I am sure most people would agree that if you look at 20 exact coins of the same grade, perhaps three would stand out. It is these that should be in a top set of all time.Eye Appeal is a difficult criteria for various reasons. White, Cams and DCams that are sometimes recently dipped, are given extra points in the registry. Also, many people seem to like them over a beautifully toned original coin. I have no idea why. I prefer amazingly toned coins except with Proof Morgan’s and a select few other coins. I continually try to replace white coins in my top sets with toned examples. If I can’t due to the lower score, I usually have a toned example in my duplicate box! Lastly, In most cases, I do not believe in paying crazy prices simply to beat other registry people. To obtain the nicest coins one usually has to pay a decent premium but going crazy seems to defeat the purpose of being patient and collecting. I see many coins selling for 50-100% more than what they are worth because two set people want them. Please contact me if you have beautiful coins of any grade. Thank You _____________________________________ Morgan's are my favorites. Building this set was/is very challenging, difficult and expensive. I prefer beautifully toned original coins. However, most DCAM grades can only be had by dipping toned coins so that the mirrors are evident to the graders. PCGS rarely gives the DCAM grade to toned coins.I prefer original toned Cameo Morgans with vivid color that are not too dark and continue to buy special coins in all grades. Email, I will pay the price! I own five incredible Morgan's that CAC would not approve that I will include in a second set at some point. Costly crossing and downgrading were used to build this set but it was worth it. I am still looking to improve the set by adding higher grades, and also CAC + coins. I will also pay the price for amazing Morgan's of any grade, even if it is lower than what I have. I prefer toned Morgan's where the toning is 100% evident and versus having to tilt the coin to see it. Also, I pass on the darker Morgan's. I will also buy many other coins (Non Morgan's that have wonderful eye appeal) Please feel free to email me. Thanks to Laura at Legend, both John's at DLRC and many others who might not want to be mentioned. Thanks for looking!
