I will be adding an XF45 1935-S Boone to this set shortly and then I will be down to 42 to go :)
Excellent!

Congrats on the latest acquisition. Your set is certainly a long-term endeavor and not one for the impatient.

As a knowledgeable fan of the pursuit of circulated classic silver commemorative ... I extend a true tip of the cap to your continued efforts to collect all 144 of them.

This is likely the most difficult set to collect of all ... and not many appreciate the true numismatic challenge associated with finding these coins which were not intended for circulation.

Pleased that my 'eyes' have found a few examples for you ... and I'll continue looking in support of your patient endeavor.

Best - David

When trying to put together a lowball commem set you just can't do it by yourself. As David said it's a must to have extra "eyes" looking for you. And I thank all of those that have contributed to my sets.

Three of my favorites are the FR02 Albany(should be PO01), the PO01 Lafayette and the AG03 Gettysberg. Actually I like them all and always wonder the special reason that each one of them got carried
