type set additions - some merry Christmas to me pieces
Seasons greetings to all!
So the back story is that I worked on a 7070 for a number of years. I got stymied with earliest copper and silver dollars and ended up selling off some parts (mostly half dollar portion) that did not get cracked out. The set went to a SDB for a number of years, but I've never found album in SDB a terribly satisfying approach to collecting. Over the years I've migrated a few sets to the PCGS registry format, and have started to do so with the 7070. Some pieces were still slabbed from prior purchases, some are in grading now and some pieces will be newPs (either because I find examples I like more than existing raw coins, or it just doesn't make financial sense to slab existing raw coin). Here are the December additions. Each of these represent 'improvements' over existing coins. I see a vision coming together :-)
