Set of Commemorative Silver Coins (143), 1892-1954, PCGS MS 65 (118), NGC MS 65 (23), ANACS MS 65 (2)
A virtually complete long set of fully gem quality examples which only lacks the Panama-Pacific half dollar (which is included as part of the Panama-Pacific set in this collection). A superbly well-matched set. All of the coins are in pre-1995 holders, and almost a quarter are in PCGS Generation 1.2 (green label ‘rattler’) holders.

The Isabella quarter (NGC) has lovely soft golden toning; the Lafayette dollar (PCGS) is deeply toned, with gold at the peripheries, and blues to the centers; the Grant with Star (PCGS) has rich gold and russet toning overlaid on satiny surfaces so fresh that the original die swirl lines can be seen; the Hawaii (PCGS) is an all over creamy gold; the pattern of toning on the Hudson (NGC) shows evidence of having once been in the original paper holder; the Missouri issues (both NGC) are well-matched with mainly peripheral toning; the Sesquicentennial (NGC) is lustrous and flashy beneath pale gold toning; the Spanish Trail (NGC) is a muted white and virtually free of marks.

A splendid set in early holders which was largely assembled during heyday of the commemorative boom.
