I started a few years ago with the purchase of a MS66 1941 S. This week I received the final coin a to complete my Walker short set a 1944 S. All are MS66. Most of the coins are blast white.
My next quest will be a set of VF Capped Bust quarter the small size 1831-1838.

    That's a really nice 44-s with a pretty dang nice strike for the issue. Congratulations on completing the set!

    If they all look something like that, WOW! <3

    Great looking coin!

    @MrBluster what date range constitutes a short set? I know the 38-D Walker is a scarcer date but not sure if your set includes that one; or is its scarcity a stopper?

    Have a short set myself. MS Walkers were the first thing that jumped out at me as a kid attending my first coin shows. They just seemed to glow brighter than anything else. I’ve been in love with them ever since.

    Nice, common dates could be had for about $7.50 each. That was long before third party grading.
