Early Type Coins

Early Type Coins

Early Type Coins consist of a variety of denominations. With many of these coins too rare or difficult to collect, many collectors have opted to create a "US Type Set" which consists of one coin of every type of US Coins. This set is easy to collect as well as great fun.
