Spanning nearly 80 years, the Basic Set of Jeffersons includes all dates and mints from 1938 to date. While no major rarities are in this set, the mintmarked issues of 1939 are the keys to this set. The 1950-D, despite its low mintage, was saved in quantity and today, is worth less than it was fifty years ago! If you're looking for a large, yet very completable set, give this one a try.

Notes: No bonus points are given for Full Step designations (FS) in this set.
