About This Set: CAC Date Set:
Wonderful set containing many amazing coins with the utmost eye appeal.
I love my Barber sets!

MS Sets are very difficult set to build if you want all coins that are "strong for the grade". (CAC) MS Toned coins are very desirable and much harder to find than proofs or white examples.

Please contact me if you have beautiful coins of any grade to sell. Thank You

NEWS! I sold this set. I never thought I would sell a set but it happened. The buyer had the majority of the
top CAC coins that I would need to improve my set. He is a passionate quarter collector and I basically have been
unable to improve my set much over the last few years. The combination of his top coins and mine will create an amazing, all CAC Barber quarter set that will never be beat.
Sometimes when you sell something it makes you amenable to selling more. I would now consider selling a couple of other sets because it is very difficult to improve them. I have moved on to buying beautiful coins in any series. I am no longer constrained by looking for "set" coins. I have also been buying much more gold coins, many with great
eye appeal.
Good luck Mr. Buyer! My set took years to build and had many spectacular coins! Enjoy!
2017 Update
7/26/2017 I noticed a new set that has been entered. i believe it is owned by Mr. Pogue.
The score is very close to this set. Mr. Pogue has purchased amazing coins over the years. The best!
However, approximately 40% of the coins he sold would not pass CAC. That means, at least to me, that
CAC found flaws that they did not care for. Is CAC correct? Yes 100%.
They find wear, scratches and more. The question is, should these things effect the grade? Not everyone agrees that they do.
For the sake of registry competition, Mr. Pogue should submit this Barber
Quarter Set to CAC and publish the results for all to see. It is very difficult to build a top set that is ALL CAC.
If you have read my other posts you know how I feel about CAC. In most cases, I see no reason to buy a coin that
they find fault with even if the grading services and expert graders do not agree. Who needs it? Buy something else! The only exception is if the eye appeal is a ten, I am not as concerned with the grade on the holder or the lack of the CAC sticker if the coin is amazing looking. However, I have many coins and only perhaps 20 meet this criteria.

2017
I added three gems this year, all toned coins. I might have also replaced a few other coins with
examples that have more eye appeal.

2016
I added a few coins this year. It is not easy to improve with only CAC coins. I also replaced a couple of coins with better looking examples in the same grade.
The scoring on this set needs to be totally revamped. See my comments on Barber Halves. Briefly, after 30 years of pops we now know which coins in a series are the rarest in the top grades. The 1901 S is not but its score is the highest. Most registry scoring needs to be looked at and changed somewhat with the help of certain collectors and experts based on the population of the coin and not what was thought to be the rarest years ago.

2015 CAC COMPLETE SET
Finally! It was not easy. MS sets are difficult to achieve. This took many years.
I am still looking for Gem CAC examples with top
eye appeal in any grade even if lower than what I have.
