As some of you know, I have for the last few years been working on my Washington quarter set. I finally finished it late last year and thought I would post some pictures.
I broke a LOT of slabs along the way as I wanted to fill the album, but toward the end I did decide to keep a few of them encased.
Probably should have kept more of them that way but I didn't.























Here is one of my favorites. It's hard to photograph, but a 1936-D DDO

First rate collection. Congratulations.

I'm glad you were more inclined to keep the latter purchases TPG intact.

Being able to use the 9 pocket pages in the same album made it a lot easier for me to do the same as you have done.

Brilliant and stunning!

I'm doing the same thing at the moment in a Dansco and trying to stay focused. No varieties or errors. All graded MS61's or better, with the exception of one "32-S AU58". After I take pictures of them, they are all broken out. The pictures are in a sleeve, in the back of the album.

Your 32 D & S blow me completely out of the water!! I only need two more. Can I ask you a question? Your 36-D, (not the DDO) the other one. Was it graded? If so, what was the grade? Thanks!

Wow, Debra. Those first two pictures.......

1932-D in MS64? 1932-S in MS63? I'd like to hear the circumstances surrounding those acquisitions! The set looks amazing in the CAPS album. It has that museum quality look. Thanks for sharing all the photos. Love seeing album shots.

Very nice set.
I like how they look in the caps book. The slab binder is a interesting way to look at them I have never seen that before.

awwwww...thanks for all the kind words everyone.

@GR58 - yes, I have always had hole filler albums as well but I wanted to do one "nice" set.
I choose Washington quarters because it was both challenging but also attainable over a few years.
So this is my very first MS set.

@USSID18 - I have been following your progress. Happy to hear you are down to the last 2~!! Woo Hoo!
The 1936D was a raw coin but the dealer I bought it from is a 20+ year dealer that knows his grades,
and has attended grading school (the two week classes) a couple of times over the years. Not the best
picture but it was labeled MS-65. It's beautiful in hand.

@Darth Morgan - Thank you so much. I bought the 1932S MS-63 from a dealer at the FUN show (Jan 2017).
I had spent at that time probably 3 years on the set. This MS-63 was far superior than most of the 64's
I had looked at in the past. This was truly buy a the coin not the slab purchase. Many of the 1932
both in the D's and S's had that ugly black toning on them. Nice coins but eye appeal is what I was
trying to satisfy and these two had exactly what I was looking for. The purchase of the 1932-D was
just luck of being at the right place at the right time. I didn't hesitate when I found it.

@AlbumAccumulator - yes, these are nice albums.
BIG but nice.

Thanks again!
