We call this the "Mother of All Colonial Sets." It’s a massive, expensive undertaking that few collectors have ever attempted. No collector (living or dead) has ever completed this set, but that never stopped people from trying. Take a look at the All-Time Finest Sets we’ve included and you’ll see the degree of success achieved by classic, old-time collectors like Garrett, Norweb, Roper, and Ford. Imagine owning some of the "dream coins" in this set: seven Higley Coppers, five different 1783 Nova Constellatio Patterns, all of the 1792 Patterns, a silver 1776 Continental Dollar, three Massachusetts "NE" denominations, and many more.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
