About This Set: From the Experts at PCGS

The Harry Bass "with Varieties" set of gold dollars was one of the finest ever assembled. The set was missing only the ultra rare 1849-C open wreath. The coins in the Bass set were exception quality. The rare D, C, and S mint issues are very high grades. The more common coins are virtually all Gems.
