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 _______________________________________________________________________________ Proof Trade Dollars are large coins, many with beautiful toning and contrast. Usually I prefer these to the DCAMS unless they appear to be original or dipped long ago. Always looking to upgrade or to purchase stunning Trade Dollars in any grade. Thanks Laura, and John(s)!
