About This Set: My major focus had been searching for high grade examples of tough Overton varities especially over the over the last ten years. As another challenge, I am trying to build this set with separate coins from my complete variety set with differing die states when available. As is the case with the two toughest coins in the set, the 1817/4 and 1812/l Lg 8. This set has the Dosier 1817/4 PCGS F15 early die state without the fatal obverse die crack that doomed the 1817/4 repunched die to a short, but sweet [for us collectors] life. Currently all of the halves are now unique to the set.

Thanks for posting images. It makes this very high end set real. Congrats on the 1807 small stars in AU 58, and the 1839 small letters. 2 really tough dates.
