With the addition of major varieties to the set, two additional rarities come into the mix. The 1806, Knob 6, no Stem is extremely rare, with fewer than half a dozen examples extant. The 1817/4 overdate is the most famous and valuable of all the Capped Bust Half Dollars. As of now, only about 11 pieces are known, but it is important to realize that four of the eleven known 1817/4 Half Dollars have been discovered since 2005, and that the most recent find was in late 2013 or early 2014, when an example was purchased as a Punctuated Date 1817! This set is certainly one of the widest in scope and due to the large size of the coins, one of the most enjoyable to view and display.
