Set Description:

ELIASBERGS ONLY US TYPE SET WITH GOLD

The only collection of United States coins ever formed which was complete by denomination, date and mint was that of the late Louis Eliasberg, Sr.

Building on the already immense collection assembled decades earlier by John M. Clapp, which included many coins obtained directly from the various mints in the year of issue, Eliasberg purchased the Clapp Collection in its entirety and worked with several dealers to fill in the remaining gaps. His quest began in 1925, and it wasn't until a quarter century later that Mr. Eliasberg secured the final coin needed, the unique 1873-CC No Arrows dime.

This Twentieth Century Type Set features none of his great rarities, yet it shows how a working person on a budget can still build an historic bond by reuniting coins originally held in the family of collections assembled by America's Greatest Numismatist.


SET GOAL:

Eliasberg Pedigreed United States Type Set consisting of coins pedigreed to the family of collections by the great Louis E. Eliasberg, Sr., the only collector to build a complete collection of US Coins by date and mint. This set is a sub-set of a complete 19th and 20th Century Type Set collection will include one of each major copper, nickel and silver coin type from 1800 through 1999, with every coin attributed to an Eliasberg (Sr.) or Eliasberg (Jr.) pedigree.

These coins are also a sub-set of our Custom Type Set "Eliasberg Reunited" collection which also contains United States Commemorative Half Dollars and a selection of US Gold coins as examples of design and mint, each pedigreed to the Louis Eliasberg, Sr. collection. The collection also contains a US/Philippines proof coin as an example of type from that series.

For modern issues minted after Mr. Eliasberg completed his collection in the 1950s, and older issues for which I have yet to acquire an Eliasberg, Sr. pedigree, I have chosen to include coins pedigreed to his son, Louis Eliasberg, Jr., to further expand the theme of this "Eliasberg Reunited Collection".

In addition to Eliasberg pedigreed coins, this set also contains regular (softcover) and Library Edition hardcover) auction catalogs (one signed by Eliasberg himself, and another by Q. David Bowers and others involved with the sale), two tickets to an actual Eliasberg auction, magazine and newspaper articles from Life, Look and hobby publications showing Eliasberg with his coins on display, the Q. David Bowers biography "Eliasberg: King of Coins", and personal receipts, signed letters and miscellany belonging to Louis Eliasberg, Jr. and related to the auctioning of his father's collection in the 1990s.

Note-1: All PCGS Coins in this collection are pedigreed to The Great American Numismatist: Louis Eliasberg, Sr.

Note-2: All NGC Coins in this collection are pedigreed to either Louis Eliasberg Sr. or to Louis Eliasberg, Jr., as noted in the collection listing.

Note-3: The master collection also contains one ANACS coin that NGC does not publicly show in the Registry -- an 1857-S 50c (WB-101) in an older, small Fine-15 slab, pedigreed to Louis Eliasberg, Sr.
