PF67 DDR 801

PF67DCAM

The 1950, 1960 and 1961 were purchased in slabs. The 1950 was a PCI PF67CAM and dropped two grades when graded by PCGS. The 1960 is an upgrade I obtained from Modcrewman when he made a PF68DCAM. He sold me his 67DCAM asan upgrade to a PF67CAM I had made. The 1961 was purchased at Long Beach after I had tried and failed to make a 1961 Cameo. The other 13 coins were raw pickups I had graded.

Here is a 1951 PF64CAM that had been in this set, but I upgraded to the PF66.

One day I hope to upgrade this set with a 1959 PF67CAM half and a 1956 PF67CAM Type 1 half, both preferably made by me from raw purchases.

Group photo to follow.

    Kevin,

    Thanks for sharing those, I know you have spent numerous hours tracking each of those down to add to your collection. I know I have seen many of these in hand and they all look spectacular. Thanks again for letting all ride along on your journey of finding these in the wild. Well done my friend.

    Jay

    Those are very nice. I have noticed it is now much harder to cherrypick 1956 type 1's :(

    Yes.

    The 1961 DDR is the Big One that is included in the 1950-1963 Proof Franklins with Major Variety Registry Set.

    Gorgeous.

    I was snooping on Ebay last night for a raw Cameo.

    That’s a great looking group. I’ve got a full set (mixed raw and slabbed) that pales in comparison to yours. It was really fun to put together and I might do some upgrades in the future.
    I got to hold a really nice ‘61 DDR this past weekend but was about $5k short on being able to buy it.
