1909 Mint Set - The Michael J. Kittle Collection

Overall, the 1909 Mint Set is a great and challenging set to collect as it was a very special year for U.S. coins. Most notably, it was the year of the transition from the Indian Head Cent design to the Lincoln Cent design. That transition, combined with the subsequent controversy over the V.D.B. initials on the new Lincoln Cent, resulted in six different business strike cents to collect for the year (plus several varieties). This was also the second year of cent production outside of the Philadelphia Mint and the final year of coin production at the New Orleans Mint. Several of the coins of this year are famous key-date coins and a few others are well-known semi-key dates.

I started building this set in or about 2005 and substantially completed it around 2009. The set has been the number one set in the PCGS & NGC Set Registries for nine consecutive years (2009-2017) and was awarded special recognition by PCGS as a Best of the Registry Award Winner in 2010! The coins are encapsulated in PCGS Secure Plus holders with my "ILLINI Collection" pedigree denoted on the labels. High resolution professional PCGS TrueView photos for each coin are also available. I have upgraded this set about as much as I'd like to and it's now time to move on to other collecting efforts.

Offered at $72,500 for the complete 18-coin set.

Please note that at this time, I am not willing to sell individual coins from the set, but I will consider offers to break the set up if you are interested in multiple pieces. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments.
