Discovered hoards of SCDs

I realize this section of the site is geared toward discussing "common" SCDs... but there is also the conversation about what SCDs have been discovered in hoards ?   I got interested in this topic because I am aware of some SCDs that are being hoarded by a few collectors (for example, one collector buying Wells Fargo SCDs exclusively).   Tony Swicer had an article years ago about "small hoards" of so- calleds that he purchased in the 1980’s:

1. HK-125 Battle of Groton Heights, 25 silver, 80 white metal, 100 bronze.

2. HK-154a Columbian Expo. Aluminum, 4 pieces.

3. HK-336 &338 Pikes Peak, 30 silver and 75 bronze with envelopes.

4. HK-346-347 Jamestown BU, 60 pieces.

5. HK-387 Taft-Diaz, 12 pieces.

6. HK-460 McCormick Reaper, 125 pieces.

7. HK-508 Wash. DC Sesqui. 40 in box of issue.

8. HK-509 Louisiana Purchase Sesqui. 40 pieces BU.

9. HK-542, 582, 586, 587, and 588, 20 of each original envelopes BU.

10. HK-583 & 589 BU 100 & 45 pieces.

11. HK-687 Santa Monica Breakwater, 40 pieces.

12. HK-780, 781, 785, 786 Bryan dollars, 34 total pieces.

13. HK-870 Colorado dollar, 30 pieces BU.

14. HK-911-913 Four Freedoms BU, 30 of each.

15. HK-1030 Pan-Pacific Expo. I had 5 pieces.

I think many of these pieces are very difficult to find (like # 1 in silver, 2, 5, 15)... and others which are easy (# 4, 6, 9, 10 11, 12, 13, 14); there are also some newer hoards that have come up recently (like the white metal HK-574a) that are slowly being sold into the market.
