Set Description:

Back in 1973, I purchased 3 Carson City Morgans in the GSA auction. Those 3, 1878, 1883, & 1884, have been in my collection since then. Upon joining NGC in the fall of 2005, I sent them off for grading and the madness kicked into higher gear. I had added the 1885 while completing a "raw" set of Morgans and sent that in at the same time. Those 4 coins all graded MS63 and became the charter members of this set. The others were added at a fairly fast clip. The final piece will be the 1879. I'm not sure when, or even if, I'll be able to afford that final piece to this puzzle. When, or if, I add that coin, I'll work on upgrading the set a little at a time.

You've gotta love these survivors!!

UPDATE: Feb 18, 2006

Final piece is on its way! I'll be registering it soon.

UPDATE: Mar 1, 2006

1879 CC arrived today! My first 100% set is in the books, although, there is room for improvement.

That 61 bucks spent with the GSA in 1973 has cost me a small fortune.
