Have some extra time and a few dollars these days so I decided to start a JFK half album. Purchased some individual pre 1970 coins separately and am using Uncirculated mint sets for 1970 and above. As others have mentioned, the eye appeal of coins in mint sets is variable. Some look good, others I may upgrade in the future. Some pictures of my progress.

Album is looking great! Can't wait to see your project progress!

I know how you feel on the eye appeal factor....I'm trying to upgrade a few in my P/D Dansco album!

Like Earle42 stated; you've got a pretty nice start. You're also beginning with a very nice folder too.

Are you thinking about jumping into the proofs too?

Yes. I plan to fill all the holes.

Thanks. Dansco albums are tough to find these days, but the Whitman albums are good too.

Good looking set so far!

I have mine housed in a Dansco, but I've always liked the Whitman for silver, that blue just really does the silver justice. Maybe one day I'll bring myself to breaking the uniformity of all Dansco's and move a few silver coinage sets to Whitman's.

Look forward to your progress

Great job 88isgreat! That's a very nice silver proof you got there.
I'm working on a Kennedy half dollar Dansco Album myself.
Keep up the good work,
Jon

Nice looking 88. I had recently started an Eisenhower dollar album. Upon going through those I realized just how many Kennedy Halfs I had in my possession so I too have started a Whitman Kennedy Album. Mine is much sparser looking than yours but a start nonetheless. Now I just need some $.
