About this set: This collection is dedicated to my parents who were born during the period these coins were minted. Many thanks to the PCGS Forum members and friends for their insight and advice...couldn't have completed it without them. (Composite photos courtesy of Mark Goodman.)

Great set. I'm currently building an XF40-45 set with 9 coins to go. This set took a long time to put together; I wonder how long it took you?

What a great looking set. So many of your pieces have that original toning & 5 star eye appeal that I refer to as "the look". I believe I have let my set drift from that aesthetic objective a bit too much.

you have a great eye - fabulous set - this set is on a completely different level than the complete XF45 that auctioned off a year or two ago.
