I hope other people share there type sets here so
I will start with one that I have.

Its a 1944 PD&S set. I purchased this particular year because it is the WWII years in which my Mom and Dad were involved in so its kind of like a tribute to my parents.

I purchased it from the original owner and it was kept in the original holder that the person placed it in to when he purchased it.
This is a quick image I took years ago but if you would like to visit the registry her is the link.

Spectacular sets! They sure issued a lot of coins in 1944, didn't they?!
