Anyone up for some Roosie Talk? - Thread #6

Every once in a while I have been asked to start a new Roosie thread since I started the first one back a few years ago after I decided to get back to collecting these little gems. Usually it's to celebrate a milestone achievement in someone elses set, but today I get to say it is my set I'm gloating over.

I finally finished the silver portion of my Roosie set 100% complete, 100% Full Bands, all MS66FB or higher. This is a feat I haven't done before as I concentrated on the clads usually, but this time I'm doing both. Now my set is just a work in progress and is now in 7th place. I plan on upgrading until I can't afford anything further or something else happens.

The last coin in question was a 1958 MS66FB which I had to pay dearly for. It seems to be an all there dime from what the TV shows. Best looking bands I've seen on a '58 in my days of searching. Here is a picture of said coin:

MS66FB

Now that I have finished this set, my immeadiate goal is to get everything in 66+FB, then up to 7's and beyond.
Here is my set as it stands today. Thanks for looking and as always comments are welcome.

    Paul, first and foremost. We missed you at FUN. A BIG congratulations to you on your 100% FB completion. Am beginning to open up to the idea of having a complete FB set. I was watching your 58P tonight, and was shocked to see the final price it realized. Are you thinking it will 67?

    I'd like to finish by saying that your 55-D is beautiful, and that I feel honored to know that my old 53-P is in such a nice collection.

    Thanks for the great comments. It's the first '58 I've liked, not to mention it's the first one in 66FB to come along in a long while. For some reason they just don't pop up. The last on to sell cashed at $464 on eBay in May 2018. I knew it was going to be a strong price, but was hoping for less. I put my 1 shot nuclear bid in with about 3 seconds to go. As far as it upgrading, it will see a trip out west in it's future. I'll take anything I can get, but would be grateful for a 66+FB.

    Nice set! I like the mix of white coins and toned coins. Good job reaching for the 58

    @Stooge

    1958 Roosevelts with FB sure are difficult to locate. According to the population report, it is the lowest populated date with Full Bands. I remember a year or two ago on eBay there was a 66FB selling in an eBay auction, it was a white coin. The bid was $100ish up until ten seconds til the close of the auction. I prefer ones with color compared to white ones, so yours sure is nice in my opinion!

    I am so glad you completed your set. Can't wait to join you at the top.

    Congrats Paul, When I sold my Last set the 58P was the only date I needed in FB to have a complete FB set. It is
    the toughest to locate in FB.

    As of today there are 103 1958P Roosies graded FB in all grades. It is second only to the 1949S where 102 have
    been graded FB in all grades. Seems there is always a 49S FB coin available somewhere. Not so for the 58P.

    Great Set Paul. Hope to see you next year at FUN

    Absolutely! Not really worried about the registry rankings, but would like to have a really solid set. It was certainly fun to assemble.

    Yep I saw it. I had the pop 1/0 which John now has. So his went to pop 2/0. Great for John if the eBay coin sells.
