Rare coins, of course, offer an excellent opportunity for people to collect and preserve the past; and Carson City coins in particular are quintessential reminders of not only the Old West era but also of the Gilded Age; and the various coinage acts of 1873, 1878, and 1890. When a collector allows himself to get caught up into the specialized field of Carson City coins, he will practically fall in love with the series: doors will be opened to the history of one of the most exciting and critical periods America has ever known. And the background of the coins with the "CC" mintmark is the stuff movie scripts are inspired by.

There is no grander way to collect U.S. coins than with the Complete 111-piece set of coins from the "people's choice" for U.S. mints. Success in completing the set is conditioned, of course, upon a person being well financed, patient, and possessing a fortitudinous spirit. For some of the dates it will need to be resolved early that certain grade requirements will be restricted to what is available due to low populations.

Without a doubt, the 111-piece complete set of "CC" coins is in a class by itself. There is only one choice for rating the achievement level of the one person who accomplished the goal: Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr. is enshrined as a Hall of Famer in the hallowed halls of numismatics.
