New set for SSDC

Post by JohnGoldsmith » Sun Jan 31, 2021 3:14 pm

Was thinking (bad for rodents) the SSDC does not have a Klaes set of 51 coins. Naturally it would only be the basic set. I don't think a full set would be feasible. I have contacted the highest most knowledgeable VAM collector in the entire universe (or my buddy) and he agrees. Yes or no?

Yes.
Have things dried out down there?

For those of you unfamiliar with the person and book (actually more of a pamphlet) that came slightly before LVA. Printed in 1963... and good luck trying to locate a copy:

When in doubt... don't.

What is the composition of that 51-coin set? Never had that book on my shelf, like most others. There are 96 dates alone. Just one of each year (except 1921) and all of the proofs?

The roads are open and seen the path of destruction close to my house. A lot of trees are missing, fire wood is along the road side for your picking.

I put a list and explanation on the Wiki a long time ago. Thought it would be made into a registry set. Guess it never was. Anyway, it's here:

Klaes 51

Some slots are gimmes and just illustrate a general feature that was observed, often different mint mark sizes. Others are tough (78 VAM 44, 02-O Micro O, 01 VAM 3).
