This set is overflowing with rarities, yet the coins are relatively affordable (all things considered) because so few collectors even attempt to put it together. After all, the mintages on several of the issues are less than ten pieces! This set comprises both the Coronet Head cents (1817-38) and the Braided Hair cents (1840-57). If you insist on PR65RD (or better) coins then you won’t go far with this set, but if you want one of the great challenges in any acceptable grade then this might be exactly what you're looking for!

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing. This set is a work in progress. There is the possibility that an 1818, 1819, 1819/8, 1833, 1835 or 1839 Proof may be graded in the future, in which case, it will be added to the composite.
