    Very nice. I really wish I had put aside some Double Eagles a few years ago when they were cheaper. Congratulations.

    Looks like an excellent example of perhaps the most beautiful coin. Thanks for sharing!

    I am doing a similar project with Seated Dollars...Buying several from each of the 4 decades that they were produced. Trying to get at least 3 mint marks. Also, buying Civil war era, Reconstruction era and at least one proof. I am currently up to 7 examples. So, 3 more and I'll be halfway there.

    care to share an example? sounds like a awesome project.

    thanks! yeah, i wanted to start a set of $20, but figured i would not be able to afford it. then, i decided to trade up coins and just take my time...keep looking for the right pieces and opportunities. i used to have fives, but sold the last two just recently as part of getting this coin. one of the keys to this game is patience, i have learned.

    Nice addition Steveben.

    My Box o' $20 began with a MS63 CAC version...

    ...the 20 have been paired down to 5 to make room for a different lineup. I still have HR.

    Cool way to collect $20! I once put together a set of Liberties and St. Gaudens from all mints. Eight coins in all. They look great in a Capital Plastics holder.

    Stunning, congrats! If I just could have one and only one more coin, this is it.

    Great coin! I love your idea of a box of 20 20's, and the principle you've outlined for yours. There's something awfully compelling and authoritative about those big old gold pieces. They kind of eclipse everything else in a collection.

    @steveben - Unfortunately, no photo at the moment. The set is currently in my SDB. I'll take a photo next time I visit my coins.
