Thanks for all of your comments and interest.
I really like the K-12 set. Some really great clashed coins.
the 1902-O VAM-45A is one impressive clash.

Congrats Lee. That last hole in the K12 set is a tuffy. I showed Jeff Oxman one at a FUN Show and I got two "Oh YEAHs" from him, one from the obverse and one from the reverse, and a smile from ear to ear.

Alan,
When I first saw the raw 45A for sale, I had a smile on my face also.
When the auction was over, it was really big and lasted for some time.
Then when JB emailed me my grades, the smile came back.
:D

Congratulations on the K-12 set!! The 97 O 6B could not have been easy.

Yes, I lucked upon the 97-O VAM-6B. It is only the third 6B in the SSDC. And people are looking for the 6B for the WOW set, and because it is a cool break. So I can't complain even though it is only graded as an 8.

Congratulations! However, anytime I read about a 1902o vam 45a my ire gets up. My discovery piece was stolen en route back from Leroy, along with several others. I have NEVER found another one.

Congratulations Lee!
Nice set, you know I like the "clashed".
I'm still trying to finish the "Pete 8 Set".

Wow Brian.
I'm sorry that happened to you. I would be very upset to find a coin like the 45A, get the DC, and then never see that coin again.
