An incredibly ambitious set that contains all of the major design types of Large Cents, and thrown in for good measure, Half Cents. Judging by the completion rates of the present competitors, this set is almost impossible to finish, but that doesn’t stop people from trying. Included in this set are American classics such as the Chain Cent, the rare 1793 Liberty Cap Cent, and the one-year-only 1793 Half Cent. Both circulation strikes and Proof coins are allowed in this set, thus this set will tend to have a higher overall GPA than the circulation strikes-only set.

Notes:This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
