About This Set: This set initially consisted of raw coins which I have submitted over the years that have been graded either Genuine or AU58 and less. These mercs did not make it into any of my other sets. I can sort of say that these are my mistakes from the learning process. Since starting this set in September 2009, most of these mercs have been upgraded. I have found that AU58 mercs are more difficult to find than I thought and there has been strong competition in acquiring them. Many have low pops in this grade. It has been a fun set to assemble and I have completed the set today (March 29, 2017) with all PCGS AU58's. Since then, I have sent in some of the nicer mercs for reconsideration and true-views and got a few pluses . The most difficult coin to find for this set was the 30-S . The 31-D was rare, and the 24, 24-S, 25, 27-D, 27-S, 28-S, 38-D and 45.
