About This Set: Americana at its finest! The Highlander Early Dollar set consists of original examples in the Very Fine to Extremely Fine category. However, one example grades Fine and two examples are almost uncirculated. An early dollar with a smooth planchet, solid details, original patina, and minimal circulation marks is a historical treasure to behold. Some specimens are pedigreed and emanate from the Amon Carter, Benson, Cardinal, Clapp, Eliasberg, Flannagan, Hering and Ostheimer cabinets. The Highlander Early Dollar set holds the first 1800 Wide Date Low 8 obverse with AMERICAI reverse, 1798 Large Eagle 5-Stripes, and 1800 10-Arrows certified by PCGS.
