To many collectors this is "as good as it gets." The enthusiasm for the entire series of coins from the Chain cents of 1793 to the final Braided Hair issue of 1857 is legendary. These fascinating and historic coins have created a collecting passion among some of the most famous numismatists of all time. Chain, Wreath, Liberty Cap, Draped Bust, Classic Head, Coronet Head and Braided Hair. What a series!
