Current Finest Possible Set Rating

69.118

Here's a set that's short but filled with challenges. You'll be able to build more than half of the set in short order, but then comes the 1864 Small Motto, the 1872 and perhaps another date or two that's truly elusive. It's a unique denomination, a one-time design (although similar to the Shield nickel) and a beauty of a set when it's completed.

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