    those are beautiful .... I am surprised the 68-S has 24 higher ranked registry sets today

    Do not be surprise, some of the first strikes was almost perfect.

    I may have missed your motivation, explanation or collecting method. Let me ask you a question @SanctionII-

    You're posting a lot of graded proof coins. Are you looking for these coins and pulling them from many different proof sets (looking for the best ones) to compile one set? Or buying them already graded?

    Oakstar.

    I returned to the hobby as an adult in 1998. Since then my primary focus has been 1936-1970 proof and SMS coinage.

    I have searched and collected raw coins, both toned, Cameo and varieties.

    In 2021 I started to submit coins for grading and building Registry Sets. I have purchased a few graded coins.

    The sets I have posted photos of are mostly coins I have graded.

    your 1969-S Lincoln seems to have an ultra rare error with a die chip on the jaw

    Once again a fine set of modern proofs. I have a complete set of Lincoln Cents 1930-2023, including proof issues shown above, and have recently purchased the Kennedy Half Dollar ones from 1964-1970, SMS and Proof. Thank you for sharing these, proof coins are easy on the eyes.

    All superb sets. Some of those are hard in higher DCAM grades, especially the Lincolns.

    Thanks for the feedback. Always helpful to know ones motivation and process. Great looking sets! 👍 👍

    Do you have any 64 SMS coins?

  • SanctionIISanctionII Posts: 11,589 ✭✭✭✭✭

    No 1964 SMS coins for me.
