Most know I'm writing a book around the series. Yeah I know, I've been saying that for years and years. Ha Ha.
I've actually sent three chapters for proof reading and editing. So there.
Most say the series is in the pits. No money to be made. Personally, I'm not in it to make money.
I'm in the series for the designs, history and people behind them.
Nicely toned examples have no top price. Whoever wants it the most, regardless the cash, will own it.
I paid over $800 for this Maine in 63 OGH (before CAC was around):

I sold it to a fellow collector at the price I paid. Didn't make a dime.
Sold most of my early commemoratives on GC a couple months ago. Did Okay.
I saved the special ones for my self though:
Some very knowledgeable folk's said one of the finest they've seen, regardless of grade (AU55 OGH). Mark Goodman image. Sorry, but no one I know can touch Mark on imaging and pricing.
Sorry for the long winded post.
Go ahead and share your early commemoratives and tell the story behind your purchase if there is one.
