BDE 20th Century Proofs (NGC Only)
What can I say? I love these 20th Century proof coins!
Unfortunately, it's doubtful that I will ever complete this set. Gold gold coins are scarce and very expensive. It would take a millionaire to complete this set with the high-relief Saint and the Indian proofs (which I am not).
I prefer to keep this set completely NGC graded. It would be relatively easy to add over 7000 points by replacing NGC graded proofs from the 1970's with PCGS "upgrades." The coins are no better really, but PCGS has softer standards than NGC for proofs from this decade. Unfortunately, those are the rules for the competition.
