About this set: From the Experts at PCGS
Louis Eliasberg did what many collectors have tried to do and failed – he built a complete collection of United States coins that included every date and mintmark combination known to exist at the time. As a result, he also owned every one of the Top Ten Most Famous U.S. rarities. No one else has come even close – not Norweb, not Neil, not even our own National Collection! Plus, many of Eliasberg’s coins were exceptionally nice. What an accomplishment! What a role model!
