Set Description:

I bought the first coin of this set on January 6, 2014. My goal is to build a top 20 set and see how much the points cost me on a per point average. I was able to stay at $1 per point until I got to the 35,000 point range. It looks like from this point forward the points will cost dramatically more. I could have kept the price per point level lower by using lower grade 1879-cc, 1890-cc, & 1891-cc coins which do not give very many points in relation to cost.

At 36,114 points and rank 23, I have $36,538 in the set and NGC shows the value at $37,450

At 39,090 points and rank 22, I have $41,938 in the set and NGC shows the value at $38,600...

8/22/14 - I have been collecting GSA Hard Packs for exactly 7.5 months now! Today, I broke into the top 20, which was my starting goal. I did so by adding an 1885-CC in MS66+, a beautiful coin which I was fortunate to find. Now, at 40,857 points, I rank #20 and have $46,068 invested, while NGC shows the value of the set at $39,600…

10/14/14 - Replaced 78-CC MS64 with MS65, Replaced 83-CC MS66* with MS66+.

12-14-14 Replaced 83-CC MS66+ with 83-CC MS66+* (Plus Star) and replaced 1884-CC MS66 with 1884-CC MS66+

12/24/14 - Replaced 1880-CC with MS66, Replaced 1884-CC with MS67

1/20/15 - Replaced 1880-CC Rev of 78 with MS66

Note: NGC assigns minimal value for + designation, whereas coins graded 66+ consistently sell in the marketplace for multiples of what the NGC guide value shows.
