This is one of the most challenging of all 19th century silver sets. The coins are big and heavy, leading to lots of bagmarks on most surviving mint state examples. In addition, rare dates abound, including the ultra-rare 1870-S, the tough Carson City issues, the rare dates in the early 1850s-the list could continue. Collectors usually choose to buy two examples of this series, one "No Motto" and one "With Motto." A complete set? A great joy and an even greater challenge!
