Possible Set Rating
67.150

This composite is for PCGS-graded coins that have been stickered by CAC. When adding coins to this set, they will be cross checked against CAC's certification verification to ensure legitimacy.

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 Mint State set involves only five pieces, but each one is a classic. There's the rare and ultra-popular 1856, the oh-so-tough-to-locate overdate of 1858/7, and the three "common dates." A short set, yes, but one that can be a challenge as well, especially in MS65.
