Set Description:

Eliasberg Small Cent Type Set

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 Small Cent Type Set features none of Eliasberg's 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.

All PCGS coins in this set are pedigreed to America's Greatest Numismatist: Louis Eliasberg, Sr.

All NGC coins in this set are pedigreed to either Louis Eliasberg, Sr. or Louis Eliasberg, Jr. as noted.

Note: Please see our Custom Sets for a complete listing of coins in the "Eliasberg Reunited" collections.
