Set Description:

I cannot think of a more difficult set to complete than the 29 piece 1875 Mint Set. With the exception of the 1875-S Double Eagle, all the gold coins range from very difficult to nearly impossible to find and/or afford. The 1875 $5 gold coin is one of the great rarities of all U. S. gold coins. It had a mintage of only 200 pieces plus 20 proofs. Survival estimates range as low as only half a dozen pieces. NGC has only graded two examples, an XF-45 and an AU-55. Even Eliasberg, whose collection contained an example of every coin struck at the U. S. Mint, would not have been able to put together a complete 1875 mint set because his 1875 $5 coin was a proof, not a business strike. Another stopper in this set is the 1875 $10 gold coin. NGC has only graded 7 examples. The 1875 $1 and $2.50 gold coins both have NGC populations of less than 35 pieces contributing to the difficulty of completing this set.
