After some crossovers, sales, and otherwise repositioning I've "completed" (for now) my Late Date Walker set and digital album. A few or more will likely be upgrade in due time. I really like they way they let you display them in the digital album. I wish I had Trueviews for all of them, but I think the cell phone photos work well enough for now. Here is a link to the set. Thanks for looking, comments are always welcome.


And here's one of them to round out the post.

    Attractive set, and I agree, a nice way to display. It's a little weird to me to see 58's and 66's grouped together, but still, there are some very attractive coins in your set.

    Absolutely beautiful! You did a great job, and should be very proud!

    You have the ability to write anything you’d like on the bottom half of the inside front cover, perhaps something you feel is of particular interest about your set, or an interesting tidbit about how some coins were acquired, etc.

    A day without fine wine and working on your coin collection is like a day without sunshine!!!

    Very nice set... Congratulations on completion. Nice display. WLH's are a favorite of mine...Having one or two in my pocket as a kid made me feel good...Still part of commerce back then. Cheers, RickO

    Very nice group of coins, I Hope one day to have a group as attractive as those. I especially like the color on the 36-S and 44 S. The digital album is quite nice and easy to use. Do you mind me asking how long it took to build this set? I'm putting together a similar one currently.

    Very nice set!
    And I have no problem with wide grade ranges within a set (as mine has as well), as each coin stands on its own anyway.

    @pursuitofliberty and @Walkerguy21D I like the 58’s in my set, they’re very nice for the grade and yes they do stand alone. But with that said, those will likely be upgrade candidates as they don’t quite fit the set as I’d like.

    The early date set has some MS, some AU’s and an XF and will probably follow that distribution for the remainder of the set.

    Thanks again. I appreciate your comments. B)

    Congrats on a FINE looking set!!

    Nothing wrong with selecting AU sliders to represent some of the KEYS.

    They blend in nicely.

    I don't have any issues with the mix, at all. It's a good looking set overall. It was just a little unusual to me to see the grade splits, but if we really collect what we like, it's also refreshing. And solid 58's are often mistaken for 63's and 64's at arms length (or closer) anyway.

    FWIW, sometimes I appreciate the 55's an 58's more. At one time I had a complete Final 40 Set ('33 to '47) in what would be 55/58, about 2/3rds of a second set in the same grades, as well as a dozen or so Choice/Gem examples ... along with some earlier dates in ChEF to ChAU.
