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 money 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 continuauly
try to replace white coins in my top sets with toned examples. If I can’t due to the score I usually have a toned
example in my duplicate box!
Lastly, 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. However 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 of any grade. Thank You
