About this set: From the Experts at PCGS
One of the finest collections of Indian Cents of all time was the Dr. Alan Epstein Collection. This set was assembled during the early years of certified coins, from 1987 to 1993. The set was built up around a MS65RD set, with constant upgrades. Alan did many lateral trades to better coin in the same grade holder. All coins were PCGS graded. Prior to it's eventual sale to Eagle Eye Rare Coins in 1995, Alan exhibited the collection and sent a price list to selected collectors and dealers. The collection was valued by Dr. Epstein at $463,000. There are only 9 possible upgrades that could have been made. (Has anyone ever seen the 1909-S MS67?) It also boasted the only 2 MS68s ever given out by PCGS. Amazingly rare coins like the 1872, 1873 Open 3, 1877 and 1886 T2 in MS66RD and the 1873 Closed 3 in MS67RD are enough to make today's collectors start salivating.
