About this set: As David Hall once wrote, the most popular way to collect Morgan dollars is to collect what you like. Welcome to my collection of what I like! PCGS doesn't have a registry category by that title, however. There are 2 themes here - one quite obvious, the other not so much. There is a complete Carson City set and a partially completed set of Morgans I just like a whole lot for many reasons. Some of my favorites, to be obtained and added to my registry are the 79-Sr78, 80/79-CC, 88-S, 89-S, 95-S, 00-O/CC, and 02-S. I bought many keys first; that was logical as they keep going up in price. It's nice to see my CC set ranked at 102 all-time finest, although I have no such hope for the others; if they make it, great. If not, I'll still enjoy the hunt nonetheless.
