About this set: 10 April 2005: In it's infancy, this set will grow as I find specimens I like. Having tasted the glory in owning a finest set, and the mere weight of a gold coin, it's easy to see why these are so popular. George V sovereigns isn't a large set, so I hope to complete it within the next year or two. (PCGS started this set with only the London Mint dates. Now they've expanded to include all dates with George V regardless of mint.) To keep the quality issue, it'll take a bit longer than my original estimate to complete, but we'll see what happens. To all who may read this, I have been a collector for nearly 30 years off and on, but never lost the love for this hobby. Only since joining PCGS, have I become a serious collector/investor. You'll find I am not a fan of proof coins, but after acquiring a PR70DC half-sovereign, I had to add a set. My British prize is still a 1847 Victoria Gothic Crown in PR62 (naturally, by PCGS). For the young numismatist, it's not where you begin, but how. Start where you are, and with what you have. Upgrade as you can, have fun, and learn about this fantastic hobby!
