About this set: From the Experts at PCGS
The Naftzger collection of 1793 to 1857 large cents (Complete Varieties Set) is by far the finest ever assembled. Besides including the only Chain cent ever graded MS67, the famous Atwater 1793 Wreath cent, graded MS67RB by PCGS, and numerous cents graded MS67RB, the collection includes ALL the varieties, most of them the finest known example. It took Naftzger 40 years to build his collection! It took Naftzger four decades to build his collection and the tremendous, consistent effort shows in this fantastic set. The Naftzger collection is one of the great collecting accomplishments of U.S. numismatics.
