Well, the mint has once again screwed us low end collectors with what will become one of the hardest and HIGHEST priced coins to get and collect as well as one of the lowest minted coins ever put out. The new 2019 (S) Silver Reverse PF - Enhanced Finished Coins. I can only hope to get one when they are first released. If not only the rich will get them. Getting a 70 will break the bank. Just my 2 cents.
Back in the collecting game. Best Label Set's!
Hi guys been gone a while but, I'm back. For the guys that know me and also, love to collect and try to get the best labels in their best coin set's I finally got one of mine, Tom's Complete Reverse Proof Set Best Possible Labels" completed. Or at least I thought so. I also, finally got my first awards "NGC Best In Category" and "Best In Category". I completed this set only to find out that one of the coins had a even better label out there that I didn't know about. The "PF 2006 P S$1 REVERSE PF EAGLE 20TH ANNIVERSARY" coin known to be a very nice coin in a Black Label also, has a very rare Blue Label! I've only seen one in nine years and the guys wants SIX times the book value. I have to ask all of you has any one else seen this Blue Label coin and does anyone know how many are out there?
I'm now hoping to complete my next set soon. "Tom's Perfect Burnished American Silver Eagle NGC Set! Best Labels Possible". You'll see it posted soon.

Why is this coin NOT in the NGC price guide?
In 2000, the Mint issued the "United States Millennium Coinage and Currency Set" which included a 2000 Silver Eagle bullion coin minted at West Point (but without a "W" mintmark), a 2000 Denver-minted Sacagawea Dollar with a burnished finish, and an uncirculated 1999 series one-dollar bill with a serial number beginning with the numbers "2000". The sets sold out at the issue limit of 75,000 units.
Here's the real question why is this coin listed as part of the Complete Silver Eagle Set but, NOT on the NGC price guide? The 2008 error and 2011 S are both limited coins and are listed but not the 2000 Millennium? Any one have the real answer?
