This "little" set is a big numismatic challenge that contains two of the most highly-regarded classics from early America. The 1792 half disme leads off the set, the "small beginning" that George Washington referred to that was actually struck in the private home of John Harper before the Philadelphia Mint opened. The other major rarity is the 1802 half dime, a coin that is extremely rare in all grades. There is also a two-year Flowing Hair design from 1794-95, the Small Eagle coins of 1796-97, the Large Eagle issues of 1800-1805 and the Capped Bust pieces of 1829-37.
