Classics, classics and more classics! This set contains one of the rarest and most valuable coins in the world—the 1822 $5 gold piece. Only three of them are known and two of those are in the Smithsonian Institution National Collection. The third piece, from the Eliasberg collection, has yet to be graded by PCGS. Other great rarities include the 1798 Small Eagle, the 1815, both 1829 issues and more. This is one of the most challenging sets in the world of numismatics, but it is filled with rewards!
