    Classic commemorative Grand Slam!

    I want to coin a phrase here “Classic commem grand slam”. This is made up a Columbian expo, Stone Mountain, GWCarver and BTWashingtin half. I believe those are the 4 easiest classics to find. Who here has completed the slam? I’m only 50% there myself.

    I have easily with multiple grand slams. I have found numerous Columbian Expo half dollars. In my experience, it is the easiest to find despite being the oldest. I never kept count of how many I found in my tenure. I was fortunate with Stone Mountain. I found 12 at one time. Some were in the AU, but a few were mint state. Someone's collection was raided. Booker T would be next as I have only found 3 but it seems that it is a fairly common for those to find and gain entry into the Classic Commem Club. Washington Carver has been elusive as I have only found 2.

    I am at 75 percent, strangely no Columbian for me. Most have come from box searches but a few from tellers trays.

    All I need is a Stone Mountain.

    I've found three Columbian Expos, two Carvers, and two Booker Ts.

    I have none of the 4 from CRH. I did find the Carver/BTWashington...does that count as 2? For bonus points, I found the Columbian Exposition the hard way - with a metal detector.
