This is the first small cent issued. In the opinion of most collectors it is also the most beautiful copper (or copper-nickel) coin ever struck. The set involves only six pieces. A short set, yes, but one that's a tremendous challenge as well, especially in MS65 or PR65.

Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
