With some recent acquisitions from SixMileRick, I finally achieved the goal of filling the 100th slot in this 140-coin Registry Set!
Since I last posted, I have acquired 16 more coins and now have 101 in this set. The collection is now 72% complete.
The 100th coin is the 2008-P Arizona NGC MS66.
I took the advice of SixMileRick recently to go ahead and not focus so much on NGC MS67 or better and I'm glad I did because I was struggling to find specimens for my Registry set and looking clos
Mid-way point of the Registry Set!
As mentioned a few weeks ago in my original Statehood Quarter Fun journal, I began building my Statehood Quarter Registry set back in late November 2015 with 3 coins. In December 2015, I added 42 more coins to their slots. This January, I added 40 more and am now just past the 1/2 way point with 60% of the collection and 85 coins!
With the addition of my 2007 P SMS IDAHO NGC MS-68 coin, I slid into the #20 spot of NGC-only coins as well!
55 coins rema
The beginning of the Registry Set
After a 13 year hiatus, I finally got back into the coin world, and in November 2015 I purchased 79 quarters from usstatequarters.com to fill the remaining holes I had in my Dansco 1999-2008 Statehood Quarter album.
I was pretty happy going through the quarters as I placed them into the Dansco album after not having even opened it up in 13 years, and felt a sense of accomplishment getting all 100 P&D coins in there!
Then, I remembered I had 2 quarters
I'm so excited!
As I'm making a decision as to whether wait and buy an NGC MS-67 1999-P 5c 6FS, or get an available MS-66, I just checked the Census and it was updated YESTERDAY!
So, looks like there are more MS-67's available then I previously thought, and I may be waiting to find the right one.
