About this set:  In 2011 Gabrial Murphy retired his "Murhy's DRG Set". The DRG set was created by Dr. David R. Golan. He searched tens of thousands of coins to create a set with all top pops, including up to now, the unique 1979-P in MS-68. I was able to acquire a few of his coins, including the 1979-P. For decades no one has been able to find a coin that exceeded his top pop finds. It took over 3 decades for a second 1981-S MS-67 to get graded. Mitch Spivack gets credit for that accomplishment. I am still searching for another coin that will exceed one of Dr. Golan's top pops. This is a difficult task, as access to huge quantities of uncirculated specimens at face value is no longer a viable option.
