About this set: This collector would first like to thank his good friend, Charley G., for getting him started in 1996 with the West Point dime. Charley G. now say's that he has created a monster! Maybe he has. Secondly, RL would like to thank, his wife, Peggy, for believing in him. Lastly, he would like to thank two other really great friends that have helped him, more than he can say, to complete this set, a MR. D.K. and a MR. G.A. After starting into coins in 1996, RL went on to other modern coins, including the Premier Silver Proof Sets, which was his first complete set. Then with the start of the new State Quarter program, he got involved with it. Finally he began collecting the American Silver Eagles, both Proofs and Mint State. He has moved on to PCGS high grade versions of the Silver Eagles of both types. As for the future, he is always looking for the MS and PR 70 hiding out there. RL feels that today, we are on the ground floor of something so big that in 10 years the market today, as we know it, will be nothing compared to tomorrow's. RL is glad he got involved with coins when he did, and thanks once again all the people that helped him get to where he is today.
