About this set: Years after watching the fun my dad has from his silver classic commemorative set, I wanted to start a set of my own. This is the culmination of my efforts although I continue to seek PQ upgrades where appropriate. I do not purchase already slabbed coins. Instead, I get 3 or 4 raw coins. I grade them and submit the one I believe will receive the highest grade. My ultimate goal is that I remain the highest ranking Young Numismatist for this set in the world! Most importantly, this set is dedicated to my parents, particularly my mom who has courageously fought breast cancer.

997541997$10MS698072880728Solid and strong luster for an uncirculated platinum. How can anyone not love this series?
97651998$10MS6986878687I'm barely 19 but I already know how much of a significant investment against a falling dollar can be found in owning exquisite coins in precious metals. This coin rocks with detail.
97731999$10MS691275712757I've seldom encountered such a strong, vibrant, strike on a coin as on this one.
97792000$10MS69151015151015Neither myself or my dad can find a flaw in this coin through 10x. I've never submitted a coin for a regrade before but I am, seriously, considering it for this one. It's that good!
97862001$10MS69156921156921This is a lovely coin. It's one of those rare ones that even under 20x, you can't see a flaw. Alas, it has to settle for being an MS69PQ in my estimation.
97942002$10MS69552953552953As a YN, the price of a purchased MS70 is beyond my means. I'm happy to own a great MS69 like this that most collectors would never be able to figure out why it isn't in an MS70 holder.
211002003$10MS69498355498355This will, forever, have a place in my heart. It's my first uncirculated platinum that I purchased for my collection. Sweet! I hope, someday, to hand it down to my children.
211042004$10MS69413276413276What can I say that hasn't already been said? Superb luster, color, strike; you name it and this issue possesses it.
211082005$10MS69340362706176I was so sure this was an MS70! It is, I believe, perfection but I'm very happy to consider it as an MS69PQ in my numismatic book. I know platinum doesn't tone but this one appears to be starting to do so.
8211162006$10MS6915101213037230Everytime I look at platinum eagles, in any denomination, I can't help but think that they are the most underappreciate series by today's modern collectors. Superb strikes, great frosts, and a metal that insures value for decades to come.
211252006-W$10SP69228139762405Looking at this coin, I see why I, finally, fell in love with coin collecting as it goes beyond luster to sheer brillance when you look at it. A strike that looks like Superman made it only brings this home more in my opinion.
1469222007$10MS6911532211781241This is a strong candidate for a regrade. Through 20x, I do not see a flaw nor does anyone else who looks at it.
1504332007-W$10SP69222430660663For an uncirculated coin, the luster from this is strong enough to cause you to blink.
3931052008$10MS69111431983441Got a First Strike here and it's one of the best MS69's I've ever seen based on every important numismatic criteria.
3930792008-W$10SP706705310Finally, my first perfect MS70 First Strike coin! Perfection in platinum is truly something to behold. I've had so many raw plats submitted before that I thought were MS 70 but turned out to be MS 69 that I refused to get my hopes up this time. Yet, as I examined it with a 20x loupe, I could not see a flaw. My hopes were raised again and this time came true!
