I see your thread there to make a set


Yeah, you inspired me to make the thread. Many of the collectors here have some gorgeous commemoratives. I think that we all could complete 90% of the set with all but the rarest dates ($50 Panama Exposition, etc) spoken for.

Its a cool idea for what will be a eyepopping thread , do you propose we go in order of issue ? If so we need an Isabella quarter from 1893 and a Lafayette dollar from 1901 both of which have eyepopping pricetags too.


I do propose order of issue. I need to find a good list that clearly denotes what the order is.
