I'll be the contrarian here ... I very much appreciate the set and salute the collector who had the vision, patience and financial means to pull it together.
Sure ... some of the coins can be criticized as being too low in value to send to PCGS
... but that misses the point of the collection.
Assembling this fabulous collection took most likely years (decades) of dedicated searching to achieve ... and shows our Nation's coinage history on the low end of the grading spectrum.
I personally view it as a monumental success ... and despite a few coins that we can argue about grade and slabbing costs ... the assembled collection is IMHO a masterpiece of work by a serious and dedicated collector.
That's my view ... and I'm sticking with it.
