Early $2-1/2 Gold, Proof (1821-1839)
How rare is rare? Every coin in this set is rarer than an 1804 silver dollar! This magnificent set is almost non-collectible, but if you can do it then numismatic fame is yours for eternity. PCGS has graded only 18 coins (as this is being written) from this series, and some dates have yet to be certified in any condition. Capped Bust and Classic Head Proof gold coins—it rarely gets any better than this!
Notes: This set has bonuses. Please see the Set Composition for a listing.
