This great set includes the first $2½ gold piece (the 1796 No Stars), the other rare issue from the first year (the 1796 Stars), the rare 1797, the ultra-rare 1834 Capped Bust and the first Charlotte, Dahlonega and New Orleans quarter eagles. In addition to those challenges, there are some tremendously rare varieties added to the set, such as the 1798 Close Date, the 1804 13 Stars and the 1806/5 7X6 Stars. When you complete this set you are deserving of numismatic immortality!
