About This Set: Welcome to the Pocket Piece Collection...that is, coins that have apparently spent a lot of time in someones pocket or in circulation! Ever had a pocket piece - that is a coin that you carried around raw for years and years? They get very smooth and the details slowly vanish until you're left with a very very low grade coin - a pocket piece. This set is a tribute to the circulation of coins - coins that have paid their dues in serving this wonderful country and have at last, found their peace of mind residing in a PCGS holder for posterity (so to speak). Check back often as there will always be some new pieces coming into this set but its going to be awhile before they ALL get here!

Awesome set of Low ball graded coins. Job well done.

Thanks for the pics! A superb set!!

Posted @ 7/20/2011 7:00 PM By CDudzik

"Make" in coin lingo means you sent the coin in raw to the grading company which certified/slabbed it; also referred to as "home made." HTH! And I love looking at this set, thanks for posting all the great pics, and glad to see one of my former 'home made' coins in this famous set!!

I'm just curious. How do you "make" a coin? Thanks - Tom
