Coin Rarity Information

Rarity scale A convention for designating the rarity of a coin, such as Sheldon’s system (with values such as R1 for common pieces and R6 for extremely rare specimens and R8 for those that are unique

The rarity assigned to each variety is subject to change as more pieces are attributed. I use the most current information available as found in “Copper Quotes by Robinson”.
