A complete set of cents and half cents (with major varieties) from 1793 to date in Mint State and Proof is one of the more massive undertakings in the Set Registry, consisting of over 800 coins. Aside from the extremely rare Proof Large Cents of the 1820s and 1830s, you have some extreme business strike rarities such as the 1796 Half Cent, the 1793 Strawberry Leaf Wreath Cent, the 1794 Starred Reverse Cent, the 1799/8 Cent, the Jefferson Head cent of 1795, the 1793 Liberty Cap cent and at least two dozen more major rarities to contend with. So far, only one person has come close to completing this huge undertaking, but several more are well on their way. A very rewarding set if you have the time, patience and money.
