Set Description
This set will consist of one coin representing each year of U.S. Mint Production beginning with the year 1793 and ending with the current production year.It must also attempt to represent the many varying designs,denominations and alloys used throughout the history of the United States Mint.As of December 6,2019 this set consists of a total of 125 coins of which only 18 are PCGS Graded and the other 107 are NGC Graded.These totals equal 14.4% PCGS and 85.6% NGC which meets the 75% or above criteria of NGC coins to be judged for major awards.This Set also meets the 50% or more criteria of completion as it is now 55% complete.
As the set is expanded towards the ultimate goal of being fully completed I will update my figures to reflect the latest numbers without removing the previously reported figures so they can be compared to each other.As of 4/28/2020 the set now consists of 148 coins with 80 now needed for completion.The set still consists of only 18 PCGS coins and now has 130 NGC coins.The set is now approximately 65% complete and consists of approximately 88% NGC coins and 12% PCGS coins.
On 12/3/20 the set now consists of 176 coins.Only 52 coins are needed for completion.There are only 19 PCGS coins in this set the other 157 are all NGC coins.The percentage breakdown now consists of approximately 11% PCGS coins and 89% NGC coins.With the addition of an NGC Graded 1957 - PF67 Cameo Washington Quarter on 1/04/2021 this set now consists of 177 coins out of a total of 229 coins needed for completion.
On 10/12/2021 I added 20 more coins to this set which brings me to a total of 202 coins.I now only need 27 more coins to finish this Date Set.Hopefully I will be able to complete this set in the very near future.I have most of the remaining coins in my collection which I will need to have certified by NGC.The only date that my present me with a challenge will probably be a 1793 example.

Set Goals
My primary goal is to assemble a complete Date Set of U.S. Coins and my secondary goal is to establish some type of historical reference for each coin when possible.As of December 5,2019,more than half of this set has been completed.I have many of the remaining coins to complete this set in my overall coin collection but need to finish submitting these “RAW” coins to NGC for certification. I plan to do this over the upcoming year.Hopefully,I will finish completing the rest of the set in the very near future at which time I will begin to focus my attention on other NGC Registry Sets. I have already started to assemble a Registry Type Set With Gold.
But in actuality this set will never truly be completed because each new year will require the addition of a new coin to keep the set current.I would also like to occasionally rotate coins in and out of this set in order to give it a continuously changing look and to upgrade some coins when needed.By doing this I hope to keep the set interesting and up to date.This Date Set will provide one coin for each year of mintage by any U.S. Mint facility starting with the year 1793 - and ending with the current production year.NGC,PCGS and Raw Coins;in any condition,can be used toward the completion of such a set. The set can consist of all regularly issued United States Coins,including Proof coins,as well as any Early or Modern United States Mint Commemorative Coins,and any U.S. Mint error coins.Any raw coins listed as part of this set will eventually be submitted for grading by NGC.Another goal is to complete this set utilizing the widest variety of examples manufactured by the U.S.Mint over the years. I hope to present coins in various states of preservation,different denominations and a variety of alloys.Finally,I hope to showcase the varying designs of our nation’s coinage throughout it’s history and show how the Mint has grown over the years to meet the coinage needs of it’s citizens.This Custom Set now consists of 176 coins out of a total of 228 for completion. I am hoping to complete this set in the very near future - hopefully in the next 2 years - 52 coins to go as of 12/3/20 - as previously stated in the Set Description.
I truly hope that my fellow collectors as well as the general public will find this set to be both historically interesting as well as artistically beautiful.
As of 3/15/21 the set now consists of 181 coins with 48 coins needed for completion.Now,as of 4/6/2021,there are only 47 coins to complete the set and keep it up to date!As mentioned before this set will never truly be completed as a new coin will be needed every year going forward.The set currently consists of 182 coins.As of 10/12/2021 this Custom Date Set now has a total of 202 coins in it with just 27 more for completion.

View Coin   UNITED STATES 1/2C 1794 HIGH RELIEF C-9 NGC FINE Details An Early American 1/2 Cent in Fine-Details condition with some corrosion. Surfaces are a dark chocolate color with an even amount of corrosion on both sides. Still a pleasing Details Coin for an Early American Copper.At the time of this coin’s striking George Washington was the 1st President of the United States.All thirteen of the Original Colonies had ratified the Constitution.Just four years prior to this coin’s striking at the Old Philadelphia Mint Rhode Island became the last of the Original Thirteen Colonies to ratify the Constitution of the United States on May 29,1790.For those interested,Rhode Island’s official name is: State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantation.Three significant events occurred in 1794.On March 4,1794 the11th Amendment to the Constitution was passed by Congress and was added to the Constitution and became law on February 17,1795. The Eleventh Amendment restricts the ability of individuals to bring suit against states in federal court.Also,on March 27,1794 the United States Navy was established and on May 8th of 1794 the U.S.Post Office was established.Who knows what famous Americans might have held this very coin in the palm of their hand?
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1795 Y/STAR O-121 NGC VF Details This coin is a scarce Rarity-4 Overton die variety (O-121) 1795 Half Dollar in VF-Details Cleaned condition.This die variety has the Obverse Y in LIBERTY repunched over a Star! The cleaning appears to have occurred many years ago giving the coin a silvery gray appearance but still pleasing to the eye.The NGC photos,in their app,are not the best quality with the reverse showing a white reflection from the slab - almost giving the appearance that the slab was scratched or scuffed near the eagle’s head. But,as seen in these photos,the reverse of the slab has no scuffs or scratches and no reflection.The reverse photo taken by NGC was just a poor photo - whatever the reason may be.You would think that quality control would have checked the image and taken another photo before shipping the coin back to me but I guess nobody is perfect.These photos were taken with my iPhone camera and I think they came out reasonably well.At the time this coin was made George Washington was the 1st President of the United States and John Adams was Vice President.
View Coin   UNITED STATES $1 1797 PCGS VF 25 An Early 1797 American Draped Bust Small Eagle Silver Dollar with an extremely low mintage of just 7,776 pieces.This coin is a strong VF-25 as graded by PCGS and rare because of it’s mintage as well as it’s higher circulated grade.At the time this coin was struck n Philadelphia at the first US. Mint either George Washington or John Adams was President of the United States.Washington would have been at the end of his second term and John Adams was being sworn in as the nation’s 2nd President on March 4,1797.So,depending on exactly when this coin was struck that year either man could have been President.Although,Adams would have been President for the great majority of that year,so most likely this coin was struck while Adams was President. Can you imagine who may have handled this coin in early American History??Possibly George Washington? Who knows?Use your imagination!
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1798 2ND HAIR S-167 NGC VF Details An early American copper Large Cent coin (Sheldon-167 ) in Very Fine details condition because of some corrosion on a dark copper planchet.Still a pleasing looking coin with much historical value as this coin was circulating during the time of John Adams’ Presidency and only 15 years after the end of the U.S.Revolutionary War.
View Coin   UNITED STATES $1 1799 PCGS XF 40 Another nice example of an early American Silver Dollar in a high circulated grade of EF-40 as graded by PCGS.The last year in the 1700’s and the year of George Washington’s death.President Washington died on December 14,1799 at the age of 67.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1/2C 1800 C-1 NGC FINE Details An 1800 C-1 NGC graded Draped Bust 1/2 cent in FINE Details Cleaned Condition.Actually a pleasing looking coin for an Early American 1/2 Cent in this condition and a slightly more difficult date to obtain.On December 12,1800 Washington,DC became the official capital of the United States.On Saturday November 1,1800 the 2nd President of the United States John Adams and his wife First Lady Abigail Adams became the first occupants of the newly built White House.Construction had begun on October 13,1792.It had taken about eight years to build only to be destroyed when fourteen years later it would be burned to the ground by British Soldiers on August 24,1814 during the War of 1812.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1801 S-222 NGC FINE Details
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1802 S-230 NGC FINE Details An early American Draped Bust Large Cent attributed as S-230 in Fine-Details Grade having some Environmental Damage.Still a nice early American Coin with much history behind it.The President at that time was Thomas Jefferson.He was our nation’s 3rd President at the beginning of his first term as President of the United States when this coin was struck.He would later go on to serve a second term.If only these coins could speak the names of early Americans they have come in contact with- both famous and common!
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1803 SM DATE SM FRAC S-250 NGC VG Details
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1/2C 1804 Cross 4 Stems PCGS AU 50 BN This is a nice AU - 50 Draped Bust Half Cent Crosslet 4 with Stems as certified by PCGS.Although the Cohen Variety isn’t listed on the label, it appears to be a C-9.The label clearly states that it is a Crosslet 4 with stems variety but because the Cohen number isn’t on the label it is listed as a Plain 4 with Stems for registry purposes which doesn’t make any sense to me because that isn’t the correct description for this coin.None-the-less,it is still a very nice U.S. Draped Bust Half Cent which was struck at the time The Lewis and Clark Expedition was setting out to explore the newly acquired land of the Louisiana Purchase.This land was purchased from France and added considerably to the size of the United States.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 10C 1805 5 BERRIES JR-1 NGC AG Details This is a very low grade early United States Draped Bust Dime,in AG-DETAILS condition,which was produced at the Philadelphia Mint only one year after the Louisiana Purchase!This coin while well worn is still very pleasing to view.It has a clear date,full devices and much history.If it could speak,it would have an interesting story to tell because of the many hands it must have passed through.This undoubtedly accounted for it’s damage and low state of preservation.One way to hold a piece of history in your hands is by having a coin like this in your collection!
Thomas Jefferson was the 3rd President of the United States at the time this coin was made.He had just finished his first term as President and was starting his second.Also,on January 11,1805 the Michigan Territory was organized and on November 18,1805 Lewis and Clark had reached the Pacific Ocean.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1806 Pointed 6,Stem PCGS XF 45 An Early American1806 Draped Bust Half Dollar in high circulated condition and still exhibiting some mint luster would surely be a welcome addition to most collections.It is graded XF-45 by PCGS.In my opinion,this Early Draped Bust Half Dollar is a strong candidate for an AU grade.Thomas Jefferson was in the 1st half of his second term as President of the United States at the time this coin was struck and Lewis and Clark returned from exploring the Louisiana Territory on September 23,1806.This Early American Draped Bust Half Dollar is truly a beautiful coin possessing much history and great eye appeal!
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1807 DRAPED O-102 NGC VF Details This Draped Bust Half Dollar has some type of dark environmental damage.This coin,which is in VF-DETAILS grade,still has the unique appeal of an early United States coin having seen some circulation during the early years of our country.We can only dream about the historical figures who may have handled this coin during our countriy’s formative years! Truly History in your hands!
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1808 O-103 NGC FINE Details A nice Early American Capped Bust Half Dollar in Fine Details condition as graded by NGC.The VarietyPlus attribution shows the die variety to be an O-103.Some old scratches on the reverse of this coin do not detract from it’s overall appearance.At the time this coin was struck Thomas Jefferson was serving the latter part of his second term as President of the United States.It is always interesting to imagine the hands this coin may have passed through during the early years of our nation and the economic roll it played in the country’s development.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1/2C 1809 C-3 NGC VF 25 BN A rather nice 1809 1/2 cent in VF-25 BN condition as graded by NGC.This Half Cent was in all probability minted during the Presidency of James Madison during his first term as President - March 4,1809 - March 3,1813.However slim the possibility may be it could have occurred during the end of Thomas Jefferson’s second term in office which ended on March 3,1809.Both Presidencies overlapped during the year 1809.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1810 O-104a NGC XF Details This coin is an 1810 Capped Bust 1/2 Dollar O-104a which has a very faint X on the OBVERSE field in front of Liberty’s face.If not for this,it wouldn’t be graded a Details coin and would be a strong XF-40 coin.It is still a very pleasing coin in it’s current condition and would be most welcome in many early Capped Bust Half Dollar collections.President James Madison was in office at the time of this coin’s striking at the Philadelphia Mint.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1812 SMALL DATE S-291 NGC VG Details
View Coin   UNITED STATES 50C 1813 O-107a NGC XF Details A very nice high grade early Capped Bust Half Dollar in Details condition.I still have difficulty in seeing the scratches referred to on the label.This coin was minted in Philadelphia during The War of 1812 and just a year before Francis Scott key wrote our National Anthem.The words for our Anthem were written by Key while he was aboard a British War Ship watching the bombardment of Fort McHenry. The words were later put to song and officially become our National Anthem in 1931.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 1C 1814 PLAIN 4 S-295 NGC VG 8 BN A nice early copper coin made at the end of the War of 1812.It is the Plain 4 variety Sheldon - 295.It is a pleasing coin for the grade with much historical value during the development of our infant country!
View Coin   UNITED STATES 25C 1815 B-1 NGC G 6 An 1815 Quarter graded G-6 and attributed as B-1 by NGC.This early quarter is a more difficult date to obtain as compared to other dates in the Capped Bust Series and although it is in a lower state of preservation it most definitely has a significant amount of U.S.history to share.This coin has circulated through many hands over the years and surely was in circulation during many historical events that shaped this country.James Madison was our country’s 4th President serving a second term in office.He and First Lady Dolly Madison were living in the White House during the War of 1812 and oversaw the rescue of many valuable items during it’s burning by the British.On January 8,1815 American forces won the Battle of New Orleans under then General Andrew Jackson who would later go on to become the nation’s 7th President.The War of 1812 was coming to an end at the time of or just before this coin’s striking.The War was officially over with the signing of the Treaty of Ghent on February 18,1815.
View Coin   UNITED STATES 25C 1818 B-4 NGC FINE Details This coin is an Early Capped Bust Quarter dated 1818 graded as Fine -Details Cleaned and attributed as B-4 by NGC.The cleaning appears to be an old cleaning and doesn’t detract from the coin’s appearance very much.James Monroe was the Nation’s 5th President and served two terms in office between March 4,1817 and March 3,1825.During his time in office Mississippi became the 20th state admitted to the Union,Illinois the 21st,Alabama the 22nd,Maine the 23rd and Missouri as the 24th.Missouri was admitted as a slave state on August 10,1821,after an agreement known as the Missouri Compromise in which Maine was added as a free state.

Tompkins became the 6th Vice President of the United States.Missouri became the 24th State to enter the Union and was admitted as a Slave State on August 10,1821.The admittance of Missouri as a Slave State would come to be known as the Missouri Compromise because Maine would be admitted as a Free State.
