Though it consists of only five coins, this set features two very low mintage issues that will challenge most all who attempt to complete the set. The Small Eagle Reverse of 1796 is a one year type coin, and even low grade pieces command healthy prices on account of demand from type collectors. The 1804, by virtue of its tiny mintage of only 6,738 pieces is a rarity, and while lower grades sell for less than the 1796, in high grade, it sells for more. Unlike the 1796, no real gems are known of this date. There is only one major variety for this series; the 1806/5 overdate. While it is a bit scarcer than the regular 1805-07 issues, it does not approach the rarity of the 1796 or the 1804, which remain the keys to this short, but historic series.
