Just purchased over-the-counter, it seemed ashame to break these books up. They are a steal at this pricing and make for a terrific store of value or even just a convenient way to house gifts given away throughout the year! There really is something for everyone in these books.
We've kept them toned as they came in to us (mostly just colorful edge toning) but, at your request, we would be happy to give them a quick splash to bring them back to their original white. At $15.50 silver spot the entire set would melt at $697.50... heck of a deal!
