    This is a type set of Civil War fractional coinage. Included are 1859-O half dollar, 1861 quarter dollar, 1865 two cent piece, 1857 half dime, 1865 three cent piece, 1862 dime, and 1863 penny. The two cent piece is the first coin to have "In God We Trust". The Indian head penny is made of bronze not copper and is much thicker than later pennies.

      two cent and three cent pieces quickly became obsolete.

      Really curious about how these were acquired/collected! Beautiful pieces!
