Some of these very rare coins may have gone through the Civil War, the Great Depression in a soldiers pocket to remind him of home, in one of two world wars. These coins are a time capsule of history to enjoy now and be handed down to the next generation. Includes: Indian Head Cent (1859-1909) Indian/Buffalo Nickel (1913-1938) Mercury Dime (1916-1945) Standing Liberty Quarter (1916-1930) Liberty Walking Half-Dollar (1916-1947) Morgan Dollar (1878-1921).
Silver Presidential Collection:
This collection includes the only six U.S. Presidents to be honored by U.S. Mint coinage. Five of the six coins here feature silver content which today only exists in American Eagle Silver Dollars. The cent in this set is steel, which was used to help conserve copper during WWII. Includes: Abraham Lincoln Steel Wartime Wheat Penny (1943) Thomas Jefferson Wartime Nickel (1942-1945) Franklin D. Roosevelt Dime (1946-1964) George Washington Quarter (1932-1964) John F. Kennedy Half-Dollar (1965-1969) Dwight D. Eisenhower Dollar (1971-1974).
Barber Coin Set:
During no other time in American history have the various denominations of coins had such a similar design. All of the coins in this set were designed by Charles Barber. The dime, quarter and half dollar consist of 90% silver and 10% copper. Each has Miss Liberty (modeled after the greek goddess, Diana) facing right. The nickel is actually 75% copper and 25% nickel and has Miss Liberty facing left. At the time, a five dollar gold piece was similar in design and size to this nickel. Counterfeiters would gold-plate the nickel and try to pass it off as a gold piece. As a result, the word "cents," and the letter "V" were added in 1884 to eliminate confusion. Includes: Liberty Head "V" Nickel (1859-1909) Liberty Head Dime (1883-1913) Liberty Head Quarter (1892-1916) Liberty Head Half-Dollar (1892-1915) *All coins in this set will have clear dates and are VG or better.
