The short-lived Classic Head $5 bridged the gap between the extremely rare Capped Head Left type of 1813-1834 and the Liberty Head Half Eagle which ran from 1839 through the early part of the 20th century. Three coins stand out in this short 8-coin set: the two mintmarked issues of 1838, made at Charlotte and Dahlonega and the 1834 with the Crosslet 4. Completing this set is not terribly difficult, but doing so in full Mint State is.
