    I continue to amaze myself (but that's not difficult :banghead:).
    I thought I had completed my FE-IHC set when I found that I was missing a coin.
    [NOTE: Error coins don't count.]
    I had an 1886 Type 2 but somehow totally ignored the Type 1.
    That omission has now been corrected.

    NOW my set is complete ... I think.

    Congrats on finishing the set!

    Do you have it on a Registry or have a gallery somewhere so we can see the whole thing?

    That is quite an accomplishment Kanga. I have a couple of IHC but nothing like the quality ofyour posted coin.

    Unfortunately not.
    It's been a work in progress for the last 10-15 years.
    I ignored taking pictures.
    I may have images of about 10 of the set.
    I want to get started rectifying that oversight but the set is in the bank and it will be a PITA to retrieve them.
    I've got an NGC Registry Set started since I at least have the slab numbers.
    Most of the slabs are PCGS but I can't put the few that are NGC into a PCGS Registry Set.

    I am considering creating my own show-and-tell website using HTML5.
    I did something like that years ago but my HTML knowledge is old and has significantly degraded so I have to relearn.
    THAT will take a while.
    And I don't know if there's a third-party site that will accommodate such an effort.
