Blue Angel's Coin Album

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.

Great coins! And to paraphrase Aristotle, "The whole is even greater than the sum of its parts."
