Though it consists of only ten coins, two are examples of America's rarest silver type coin! The incredibly rare Draped Bust Small Eagle half of 1796-97 had a combined mintage of fewer than 4,000 pieces, of which perhaps just under 300 survive in all grades. The vast majority of these are well worn, making the acquisition of a Mint State piece difficult and quite costly to say the least. The 1794 is also quite rare in high grade, with only 3 graded by PCGS in Mint State. Both the 1801 and 1802 are also scarce, so tackling this set will be a challenge for even the advanced numismatist.
