This long-lived series is composed of three different types and includes rarities from such romantic Mints as Dahlonega, Charlotte, and New Orleans as well as San Francisco and Philadelphia. These small coins are rich in history, and many issues were minted in extremely small quantities. Some of the low-mintage dates were hoarded in Gem condition, most notably those of 1879-89, while others are unknown in Mint State 65 or better. This is another series that is filled with rarities, but it makes a magnificent set when completed.
