    Golden.

    It takes higher quality coins. :)

    It also takes buying coins already graded in those higher grades.

    I believe @SanctionII ”made” his high ranked set by spending countless hours scouring through hundreds of raw proof sets. As such, he should be VERY proud and satisfied, as he did it the hard way!

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

    Winesteven is correct.

    All 5 coins in this 1957 proof set are raw cherrypicks that I had graded.

    I have some additional 1957 coins at our host being graded and look forward to seeing grades post. There is a remote chance of my 1957 set upgrading further.

    Today I looked at the current rankings for 1957 proof sets and see that my set has now moved from #15 to #14 (three sets are at #14), all without me doing anything, I do not know which higher ranked set was removed or retired to cause my set to move up. If I do get a further upgrade it would likely move my set into a tie for #8 (five sets are currently at #8, including Modcrewman; with Cameonut sitting at #7).

    Just curious, how many years have you been working on this absolutely beautiful set? Something seems familiar....other than its just continuously improving.

    Becoka.

    I returned to the hobby as an adult 25 years ago. Since then I have collected raw 1936-1970 proofs and SMS coinage (mostly Cameos). In 2021 I started submitting coins I have collected for grading. Since 2021 I have also created some Registry Sets of these coins. It has been fun.

    If my memory is correct you took photos of a toned MS set of silver Roosevelt dimes I have. Your photos were fantastic.

    That was yours? It's been a long time.....was it the one in the big acrylic display case? That was an amazing set.

    Yes. It was (and still is) my set. It was (and is) in a Capital holder manufactured prior to 1964 (with holes for dimes dated 1946 to 1968 [and with holes for 1965 P, 1965 D, 1966 P, 1966 D, 1967 P and 1967 D dimes]).

    Unfortunately I no longer have the photos you took of the dimes; and I think that the forum thread in which you posted your photos no longer displays the photos of the dimes. Are you interested in photographing them a second time? :)
