Talk about rare! Any coin in this series is going to cost over $50,000 in Proof 65 condition, and that's not counting the ultra-rarities, if you can find them at any price. Both the 1883 and 1884 are "Proof-only" issues, meaning that no pieces were struck for circulation. The 1859 is a major rarity, with only one piece certified (and that's a lightly circulated Proof 55 coin). The incredible challenge in both time and money is more than offset by the reward. This set covers the pre-Civil War years of 1859-60 through much of the first decade of the 20th century. History, rarity, beauty, value...it's all here!
