    The Pillar was a long term want and finding that one was very satisfying.
    The AU 58 8R was one I lost at Stacks and then won at an eBay auction for less even though I bid more!

    For those curious, the breakdown of where I got these is as follows:

    10 - eBay
    7 - Great Collections
    2 - Forum members (on CU, one of whom is also on CoinTalk)
    1- Stacks

    ~1 of the eBay purchases I was previously an underbidder for at Stacks

    Bonus factoids:

    ~only one of the 20 was bought raw and sent in to grade (the Kazakhstan Turtle)

    ~one other was bought in a PCGS details holder, cracked, and sent to PCGS where it got the AU 58 (Isabella)

    ~two were bought in straight graded holders, cracked, and sent to PCGS for TrueView photos, and a potential upgrade (which did not happen)...the 1961 Quarter went from PCGS MS 65 to PCGS MS 65.....the 1881-S Morgan went from NGC MS 65 to again NGC MS 65 to PCGS MS 65

    ~the remaining 16 were bought in the holders they currently reside in
