Flying Eagle and Indian Head Match Sets
Match Sets are small runs of varieties with similarities, which entices a collector to seek-out a variety’s counterpart. An example is the pair of ‘Goatees’ from 1903 ODD-001 and 1907 ODD-001, which forms the ‘Goatee Match Set‘. Collecting these mini-sets is a challenge, but entirely achievable and fulfilling feat!
Collectors who are able to complete the challenge and form match sets will be listed on the Match Set Honorable Mentions page, along with a gallery of their prized specimens. If you’d like to submit your coins or photos of your coins for feature on this website, then contact firstname.lastname@example.org. As always, you may remain anonymous.
