About This Set: From the Experts at PCGS
The Eliasberg complete with varieties set of Barber dimes, quarters, and halves was fabulous. His branch mint coins were fantastic, as many of them were purchased JM Clapp and his son, John, directly from the mints in the year of issue. Louis Eliasberg acquired these incredible coins when he purchased the entire Clapp collection intact in 1942. The set includes power coins in spectacular grades, including the 1894-O dime in MS66, the 1901-S quarter in MS67, the 1913-S quarter in MS 67, and perhaps the greatest Barber half dollar known, his 1892-O Micro O in MS68. Louis Eliasberg also had a PR65 example of the 1894-S Barber dime ultra rarity. His set was missing the 1893/2, but that variety wasn’t recognized when Eliasberg was putting his sets together. Eliasberg had proof examples of the Philadelphia Mint issues, but assuming he had nice examples of those two, his set of Barber coins was certainly of the finest ever assembled.
