Current Finest Possible Set Rating

This is our smallest complete type set with only eight coins required. It is also the easiest type set to complete. The toughest type in the set is the Shield Nickel with Rays, but even that coin can be found in Gem condition for under $3,000. This is a great starter set for the beginner type collectors.

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