I was a bit disappointed that the Registry did not include Braided Hair Large Cents (1839-1857) Complete Variety Set.  I originally started out just collecting 1852 varieties, but found some to be nearly impossible to find in decent condition.  So I started purchasing other dates/varieties that met my standards.

I know that completing such a set is nearly impossible, probably the work of a lifetime, if you are wanting the best or as best as you can afford.  It would be wonderful to see such a competitive set listed for anyone like myself that enjoys this particular large cent type.

Anyone thought of collecting something like this?  This definitely would be a good set for someone starting early in life.  For myself, at 69, I never expect to get much more than maybe a 10th of the entire dates/varieties.  For now I am stuck with doing a year set.  CaleyAnn

Thank you for your interest and for your request, CaleyAnn.

Due to the rarity and the level of difficulty to complete such a Registry set as this, our senior team recommends a Custom NGC Registry set which can be created on our collectors-society.com website. Please let us know when we may assist next.

Thanks,  I kind of knew it was due to rarity/scarcity.  Some are virtually impossible to obtain, as they reside in just a few collections.  

Yes, I've already started an inventory over at the collectors-society.com website.  CaleyAnn
