    This collection also has a lot of, shall we say, "upgrade potential" [​IMG] It's chalk full of fillers that I obtained from junk lots, but I also got the dateless 1916 and the 1921 and multiple semi-keys from junk lots, so that was enough motivation to go for the whole set. I'm only missing 3 right now.

    I have the 1919, and the 1924-D on the way, so the only one missing is the 1919-D. After I have the set completed and photographed, I'll send the dateless 1916 to ANACS for certification....and then I will start to upgrade.:cool: Opinions?

    They're beautiful all lined up like that. Not all of us can afford perfect everything, most of us are far from it. Be proud of what you have accomplished, I know I would be if I could show that off.

    I think it is quite an accomplishment to finish the SLQ set in any grade, when you consider it is so small a run of coins and has a high occurance of harder to get coins in it.

    Terrific score on getting the dateless 1916 from a junk lot. This series has many difficult coins when looking for pieces with full, strong dates.

    Thanks all! I have posted the dateless 16 before, but here is a closeup. It looks like a FR-02, full obverse rim and some of the beading but lotsa reverse wear...

    You have a very nice collectiion of liberties. This series is one of my favorites and also most challenging. My set is only 40% complete and they are tough to find that have detail. AG and G grades abound so your collection to me is already on the upgrade side lol.:D
     
  13. WOW thats awesome youll get the last one soon =)

    It is mighty hard to finish an SLQ set, you have quite a collection there. Very nice! When I'm looking at a collection, I don't care so much what the grade is. I care more about the effort that went into it, and how they all look so nice together. Good job!

    Thanks everyone! ;) Yeah, I'm having a blast putting it together. It's funny though, because the tougher dates seem to be the semi-keys, not the keys. The 1921 seems to be everywhere.

    I do too. If you start upgrading you'll more than likely always just have a mismatched set unless you have big bucks to spend on the keys, and it will never look as nice as a complete set of matched lower grade coins. I like it!

    Very nice set you have going there. :thumb:

    It's cool to put together a complete set. As for upgrading, hey, if the the price is right, why not?
