About this set: The Amherst Collection is a comprehensive colonial set built on the premise that quality is more important than completion, and includes the best examples of each colonial issue that I have been able to obtain to date. As opportunities arise I will update this set with coins that are objectively better, more attractive or more original than the pieces I have, even if they are in the same grade or lower grade holders. All coins will be shown with a photograph, as it makes little sense to me to list one's collection here and then keep the coins hidden.
