About This Set: Varieties take a very sincere desire and a lot of searching to find. When I started this search, there were 49 coins to the set and now there are 50, making the search that much harder. Some of the variety coins, because they are rare and might be found in any grade, I knew from the start might be lower graded. My goal was to put together a set of at least 90% completion with a Rating of at least 58 and a GPA of no worse than 63. This set contains 47 of the 50 for the set. PCGS has graded only one 1952 Bugs Bunny. There are no grades for the 1953 and 1954-D Bugs Bunny. The set contains an example of all but one of the coins that PCGS has graded. ( Two coins at N-92 for a grade sure lowers the GPA very quickly, but the 94% completion rate that those coins give you sure is nice to have. ) My emphasis has been on completion, but at this point in time, a high completion rate means a lower GPA. I will continue to replace lower rated coins with higher rated coins to increase my set GPA and my set rating. 94% completion in the first year of the NEW PCGS SET exceeds my expectations.
