I really like this set. Very glad that I picked it up and really look forward to learning Jack's routine. Last image is a bit blown out (accidentally used flash).

Just picked up this set from a private seller on eBay. My Centavo and the matching gaff have a different heads side than seen with Chris' set. Is this common with this set?

Looks like they found a source for genuine 20 Centavos coins - most sets out out these days are replicas with COPIA stamped on them in huge letters.
The looks vary a bit depending on the year they were minted. Hopefully your extra coin matches the gimmick in terms of aging/patina - some haven't, but they should match for the set.

The 3 types are shown at the links below.
Type 3 is the one I've seen most often in CSB and Scotch and Soda sets... Usually 1973 or 1974 dates.

Mine is the third link version. The gaff didn’t match the patina on the genuine coin so I just cleaned both until they did. Thanks for the insight!
