About this set: The Blue Angel Collection represents my ongoing effort to build a complete colonial type set featuring well-matched pieces grading from F to MS, all original, with nice eye appeal. I have in many cases chosen a coin in lower numerical grade if I felt it was more attractive and original than one in a higher holder, and I have continued to improve the set over time using this same rationale. Eventually, I intend to list every piece and include a photograph of every item in the hope that others will enjoy viewing this set as much as I have enjoyed building it. I would also like to thank my friends at Coin Rarities Online who have spent so much time assisting me in building this set and tracking down the pieces I need! Finally, many thanks to all of you who visit this site to view my collection! And note that I would very much appreciate any comments or suggestions anyone wishes to make. In the French Colonies specialty in particular, I have a number of additional pieces which are not (yet!) considered part of the PCGS Registry in this area, including the two best gold Louis D'Or coins from the Ford offering of La Chameau shipwreck pieces, and several additional choice 1720-A "John Law" copper and silver types.
