Take all the major varieties and throw in the minors. The result is this massive set which runs the gamut from the earliest half cents, to some ultra-rare large cents, to the most common late-date Lincoln cents. This set is certainly not for everyone, but those taking the challenge will have a very facinating ride along the way!

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing. This set is a work in progress. As new varieties are recognized, they may be added to the set.
