About this set: Here is what I like to call my "working man's set". Not all are perfect, not all are RD, but a good bit of time, money and patience has went and is still going into this collection. I pride myself with getting a lot of my earlier coins raw at great prices rather than buying them slabbed at current value. Some examples.....the 09s vdb I bought in 2001 for $398, 14D was purchased in 2008 for $257 and the 16S I purchased in 2007 for under $15!
