About This Set: I started working on The Comer Collection of Early Commemoratives in 1998 and completed it in 2004. I plan on upgrading a few more to MS66 or higher. This is a well matched set of high grade, bright white to very lightly toned coins. The Early Commemoratives are my favorite coins to collect. Look at my coin pictures and read the description to see what each coin commemorates. I love COMmEmoRative COINS!
