Civil War Silver and Copper

The war commenced with the secession of South Carolina. Hostilities commenced on 12 April 1861 with the attack by the Confederate Military on the U.S. Fort Sumter in Charleston Harbor. Following the commencement of fighting the war continued with massive casualties suffered by both the Union and the Confederate forces. Initially the Confederates held sway but due to the Union's blockades of southern ports and the manufacturing resources of the Northern states the Union forces eventually weakened the Confederate Army and inflicted a crushing blow to the Confederate Armies at Gettysburg. Although not ending the war at Gettysburg the Northern forces eventually defeated the CSA Armies and the war essentially ended with General Lee surrendering to Ulysses Grant at the Appomattox courthouse in Virginia on 9 April 1865. The Civil War period continues to evoke strong interest from collectors. This set of silver and copper coins issued during the Civil War presents a challenge to complete but can be completed with diligent effort.

There are 59 coins in this set. When Collectors have yet to create all the relevant sets (e.g. Seated Half-Dime, Dimes, Quarters, Half Dollars, and Dollars), not all 59 coins may show up in their collection.

The Blank Collection

Rating: The weighted average of all coin grades (i.e. aggregated sum of each coin grade + CAC premium multiplied by its rarity factor divided by the sum of all rarity factors). Missing coins are included and assigned a grade of 0. This metric is the basis for order rank.

Complete: The number of coin entries divided by the total number of coins in the Set.

Weighted Grade: The weighted average of all coin grades (see calculation above), but excluding any missing coins.

%: The ratio of coins certified by CAC (either green or gold sticker). Calculated as the number of CAC coins divided by the total number of entered coins.

Rarity Factor: The rarity assessment for each date/variety uses the Sheldon scale of R1 through R8 with a R1 weight being the most common while an R8 weight being the most difficult to locate.
