    I picked the 420 grain because it took me 6 month of research to just buy one and I had to go to a VERY reliable source just to get that. I think all of the sets are great and give credit to all who have made it to the list above.

    All great sets. Some take time, some take money and others just for fun.

  • Thanks Kkathyl -- appreciate the vote and feel honored just to have been nominated. The digital album is a great way to view a slabbed set. Like being a kid again!
    The 420 set was fun to build. (Favorite of all my sets!) Trade dollars are an amazing part of numismatic history both here and in Asia. They are actually hard to find at shows {despite not being 'collector darlings'} and I'm always pleased when one turns up in someone's case or collection.

  • Congratulations to all of the owners of the nominated digital albums.

    I've viewed all ten of them several times ... and each digital album is indeed in its own way are a true testament to the spirit of the collector - each of us pursuing the hobby in our own way.

    I say it is impossible to choose a 'winner' - regardless of 'votes' - everyone who chooses to pursue PCGS certified coins ... and also shares them with us in a digital album - they are all winners IMHO.

    For me - I'm truly humbled that my honestly circulated classic silver commemorative set was even considered for this honor ... that said - it's been a 10 year truly dedicated pursuit to obtain these coins which were not intended to circulate.

    If you are just checking in then take a look at all the sets - they are all wonderful - mine is Chesapeake Collection.

    When I embarked on Libertas Americana Tokens of the U.S. Centennial collection, I had no idea how many merchants used that obverse, but I soon found out there were more than a 100 different ones! The various books on civil war tokens and merchant tokens provide a LOT of information, but with tens of thousands of different tokens out there, it's hard to drill down to a specialized category such at the Libertas tokens.

    I researched all of the available publications, and then decided to compile a separate reference focusing on the Libertas tokens, to be published very soon:

    The book includes images of all of the known tokens bearing the Libertas Americana obverse (either TrueViews of actual specimens or composites of obverse and reverse images). This will be the first time in history that all of the tokens are illustrated in one reference.

    Libertas Americana Medals of the US Centennial

    The Album includes 125 different tokens (with 124 being pop tops), including representatives of merchants in each state where the Libertas Americana design was used -- Maryland, Missouri, Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, with both merchant tokens and patriotic medals.
