There are several key dates and hard to acquire coins in this grouping. The most prominent ones are the 1889 and 1893 Carson City, the 1893, 1895, and 1903 New Orleans, the 1893, 1894, and 1895 San Francisco and the 1893, 1894, 1895, 1899, 1921 and 1928 Philadelphia also the 1995 West Point. There are three of these coins that are particularly difficult to find and quite pricey. The 1893 'S', the 1895 'P' and the 1995 'W'. Of these, the 1895 'P' is a rare bird indeed, commanding an impressive $11,000 in only 'Fine' condition. The 1893 'S' commands a staggering $250,000 price in its highest grades.
