About this set: Some of the most beautiful coins left in their original state are the draped and capped bust half dollars. The coin community values these coins so highly that few are conserved, and remain highly toned and lusterous. Add the rarity of many dates and this series becomes the most under-priced of all major series at this time.I am especially proud of the 1794 in 61, 1796 15 and 16 stars, 1797, 1801 and 02, 1812/11 lg 8,1814 E/A, 1815/2, 181.7, 1828 c.2 with knob, 1838 and 1839.

Such a stunning 1817/3, where on earth do you find coins with that 'Friend" look?

A wonderful reference set, which I use to study the series. Interesting, how about the only coins not nearly at the top of the POP, are the common dates. Thanks for all the neat TrueViews. Super Set!!!
