I just purchased a 1904 Lewis and Clark PCGS AU50 to finish this set. I've been looking for a 50 or lower for some time. Would have preferred the VF20 that is out there somewhere but for now this will do. Found it at the right time too. 8% eBay bucks.

You would think a measly 11 coin set would be easy to complete. As I'm sure you've found - it is a bear of a set, especially if you are targeting your grading.

Congratulations on a beautiful accomplishment. We'd love to see some photos.

Great photos indeed - showing the power of this very difficult collecting accomplishment.

The very nature of collecting is our personal quest to assemble items that appeal to us - and for many (me included) - we select collecting goals that are nearly impossible - at best very difficult.

The completion of this 11 coin gold commemorative set in honest PCGS certified circulated state is a true testament to the spirit of collecting - and to the collector.

Nothing here was easy - and the assembled coins represent a long term achievement given and done in the true spirit of collecting passion.

Well done indeed.
