About this set: This set began in 1996 as a complete gold typeset. With a little encouragement from Doug Winters (at the ANA summer camp in Colorado Springs in the summer of 1999), I set out to finish a complete set of $3.00 gold pieces. As in any coin collectors pursuit of a collection your knowledge of a given field grows as does your collection. But when you narrow down the scope of your collection and begin to specialize in a specific field such as the Indian Princess then the knowledge consumed can become priceless. This set combines some of the lesser known and appreciated rarities in a rarity laden series. The 1856 being well struck, the 1856 S small s and medium S, the 1873 closed 3 in AU 53, 55,58, MS 61, 63,& 64. As well as pedigrees ranging from Bass to Pittman. This set is destined to be mostly comprised of Mint State 61,62, & 63 pieces chosen on the basis of originality, clean surfaces, and prooflike appearance.
