Start with the beautiful No Drapery half dollar of 1839 and finish with a run of popular low-mintage dates. In between you’ll encounter such major rarities as the 1853-O No Arrows, 1870-CC and 1878-S. This series began nearly a quarter of a century before the Civil War and didn’t end until 26 years after the surrender at Appomattox. Yes, more than half of the 19th century is represented in these historic coins and you’ll find that most of them are tough to find in any condition.
