About this set:  In the Summer of 1960 a friend showed me a copy of Yeoman's Red Book that sparked my interest in coin collecting. A few months later my parents gave me a Whitman Mercury Dime folder for my tenth birthday. Over the next two years I completed the board from pocket change. (The 16-D was a $60 gift from Mom and Dad.) I began this collection in 1974. From coin shops and shows I put together a partial set through the 70's and 80's. During the 90's I mixed raw coins with certified examples. In 2001 I decided to certify the raw coins and put together a PCGS set. My preferences are original coins, toned or white, with minimum marks. Visiting dealers, surfing the net, and walking the bourse is like searching through pocket change as a kid. By the way, I still have my original Whitman collection. This set was completed September 23, 2005. Best of good fortune to all of you as you continue the hunt!
