About this set: The pursuit of this circulated silver commemorative type set requires patience and enjoyment of the 'numismatic hunt' ... many of the examples needed are rarely seen in the marketplace, and perhaps some of them have been lost to us forever. The coins that comprise this set were not intended for commerce ... thus market availability in honestly circulated state is a true numismatic challenge. I view this circulated type set to be a lifetime hunt ... perhaps never completed. Hoping you enjoy viewing my humble collecting results so far.

Nicely done. I had a VF35 Hudson and XF45 New Rochelle (overgraded) that would have gone well with your set. Many lovely pieces - I think the Elgin is my favorite for look + difficulty combination.

David, You've got some great looking circs there. Are you going to be the first to have a complete lowball set as well as an MS set?
