About This Set: The Overland Trail Collection is made up of U. S. coins chosen for their rarity and eye appeal or both. In addition it is composed of all 8 U. S. Mints, Charlotte, NC., Dahlonega, GA., Carson City, NV., Denver, CO. New Orleans, LA., Philadelphia, PA, San Francisco, CA., and lastly West Point, NY. The set has both proof and business strikes and varies from exquisitely toned to frosty-white specimens. Coins range from the exceedingly rare, originally toned 1838-D half eagle to the rather common, 1911-D St. Gaudens double eagle, the acme of United States design. Coins vary from the historic S.S. Central America 1857-S double eagle to the short lived 1875-CC twenty cent denomination.

Half Cent (1793-1857) 1168 1835 1/2C MS65BN 29 1 5442365
Boldly struck with clean, mark-free surfaces. Some spotty red areas, possibly from the Elmer Sears hoard. Designed and modified by William Kneass. A scarce issues in MS65
Large Cent (1793-1857) 1601 1818 1C MS64RB 48 1 48411734
Note the die break "connected stars". This coin was most likely part of the Randall Hoard. Well preserved and nearly mark free.
Flying Eagle Cent (1856-1858) 2019 1858 1C MS64 556 222 2360735
Due to the rising expense of making large copper cents the small flying eagle cent was designed and began production in 1856
Indian Head Cent (1859-1909) 2234 1908-S 1C MS65RD 230 58 173575768
First cent struck at a branch mint. The "S" mint mark was added to the reverse of this beautiful, red and lustrous example. It looks just like it was minted yesterday.
Lincoln Cent (1909-present) 2425 1909 VDB 1C MS66RD 2408 336 228672350768
Honoring Abraham Lincoln's 100th birthday the cent was redesigned in 1909. The tiny reverse VDB initials for designer Victor D. Brenner caused an uproar resulting in their removal the same year.
Two Cents (1864-1873) 3584 1865 2C MS65RD 209 57 3172340
The two cent piece was produced to make up the slack in the hoarding of silver and gold coinage. Only partly successful due to eventual hoarding of all metal U. S. coinage during the war.
Three Cent Nickel (1865-1889) 3732 1866 3CN MS65 86 54 75716370
Big nickel interest influenced Congress to produce a new nickel three cent piece. Mainly used for purchase of postage stamps and finally discontinued in 1889.
Three Cent Silver (1851-1873) 3665 1851-O 3CS MS64 114 93 40723762
Only silver three cent piece minted in New Orleans. This denomination circulated widely when other small silver coinage was being melted and exported. Being only 75% silver and 25% copper the alloy was know as billion and worth less than 3 cents, thus our first subsidiary coinage. Note the bold "O" mint mark.
Shield Nickel (1866-1889) 3826 1872 5C PR65 104 61 47753343
With vitually no silver or gold coins circulating the mint chose to strike 5-cent nickel piece similar to their 3-piece cousins. Difficulty with the hardness of the metal many specimens show cracked dies, clash marks, and other mint errors. This coin Is a proof DDO, a very unusual proof with all 500 coins from one die.
Liberty Nickel (1883-1913) 3841 1883 5C MS65 1613 524 111506402
The redesigning of the five cent piece in 1883 was another collossal blunder by the mint's engraving staff. The "NO CENTS", "Racketter Nickel" variety depicted here was widely gold plated and passed as a gold half eagle. This specimen is from the famed Eliasberg Collection.

Early $2-1/2 (1796-1839) 7699 1839-C $2.50 AU55 38 14 5571402
The 1839-C is one of two quarter eagle dates of the Classic design possessing the obverse "C" mint mark above the date. This coin has a nice green gold coloration combined with an early die state strike thus avoiding the numerous die cracks of later states. Luster abounds with some golden accents especially on the obverse. A rare coin with only a few graded higher

Early $5 (1795-1838) 8178 1838-D $5 AU55 16 35 11933867
Mintage 20,583. Classic Half Eagle. Gold fever hit the country in the late 1820's as the yellow metal was discovered in Georgia and North Carolina. The gold rush that ensued triggered the establishment of federal branch mints at Charlotte, NC and Dahlonega, GA. The 1838 Classic half eagle was the first coin produced at the frontier Dahlonega Mint. This coin exhibits beautiful golden tone, semiprooflike surfaces, and fantastic eye appeal. From the North Georgia Collection
