About this set: The core of this set was originally put together by Brian Vaile, achieving the all-time highest ranked complete proof variety set. All original coins in his set carry "Gandyjai's DIVA PR Set" on their labels. On top of the difficult-to-find Cherrypicker FS- varieties, the set has two rare DIVa (Designated Ike Varieties)proof Ikes: the 71 "Nightcrawler", and the 73 "Snake Crater". As custodian of the set, I will upgrade in the rare instances that are possible - like a) adding a PR69DCAM FS-106 (to replace Brian's PR68DC FS-106), b) filling the originally open FS-801 slot eventually with a PR69DCAM that was originally found raw by Randy O'Donnell, c) replacing the original PR69DCAM 1974S silver with a DIVa micro-S variety of the same grade, and d) making a PR69DCAM FS-103 to replace the original PR68CAM FS-103.
