Description:
Well-Matched Ten-Piece 1866 Proof Set
Each Coin PCGS Certified
1866 MS Ten-Piece Proof Set PCGS.
A fabulous, complete, high grade, ten-piece proof set and a date that is rarely seen as a complete set. Each coin is certified by PCGS. The set includes:

Indian Cent PR65 Red.
A wonderfully bright coin with light red color. The obverse fields show a bit of orange-peel texture. The reverse is slightly hazy, but this does not affect the original red luster or attractiveness of this early small cent.

Two Cent Piece PR65 Red.
Similar in overall color to the Indian cent. Each side is bright reddish-orange color. The fields display remarkable depth of reflectivity that can only be seen on original, untampered copper coins. The devices show a slight accent of mint frost that give the coin an ever-so-slight contrasted appearance.

Three Cent Silver PR64.
Richly toned in variegated, dappled shades of rose, sea-green, and blue with strong, underlying proof mirrors on each side. A wonderfully attractive example.

Three Cent Nickel PR64.
A moderately reflective example with slightly hazy surfaces. Slight light blue and pale reddish patina can be made out when closely examined, but at first glance the coin appears brilliant. An affordable example of this low mintage issue.

Shield Nickel With Rays PR65.
A lovely, upper-end proof striking of this popular, first-year issue. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices display noticeable contrasting mint frost, but not quite enough for a Cameo designation. The devices are fully struck, a feature that is generally only seen on proofs of this date. Basically brilliant, there is just the slightest hint of oil-slick iridescence on each side.

Half Dime PR66.
The obverse is toned similarly to the three cent silver with speckled, multicolored shadings. The reverse is predominately blue with an arc of golden at the bottom of that side. Technically and visually appealing, this high grade piece shows no noticeable contact marks.

Dime PR65.
Once again, a similar toning pattern is seen on this piece. Speckled iridescence on the obverse with a reverse that shows rich blue and violet shades. A few light hairlines are seen on the obverse; otherwise, the surfaces appear perfect.

Quarter PR65.
The consistency of the obverse/reverse toning on these pieces draws one to the conclusion that is an original set. A put-together set would show more variability in the toning due to differing environmental conditions. Speckled multicolored toning on the obverse is once again paired with a deep blue reverse. The deep mirrors in the fields backlight and enhance the rich tonal qualities. There are no obvious defects on either side of this lovely, original proof striking.

Half Dollar PR65.
Once again, the obverse displays spectacular multicolored, dappled toning that is paired with a reverse that shows cobalt-blue and rose toning. Close examination reveals a few light hairlines, but a loupe is necessary. Exceptional eye appeal.

Seated Dollar PR66.
An interestingly toned dollar and distinctly different from the other silver coins in the set. Each side has a plethora of colors but light gray is the dominant hue. The central device of Liberty has a deeper gray splotch of toning, and the lower reverse is bright blue. The fields are brightly mirrored and bring out the many colors on this Premium Gem. Technically defect-free as well as visually appealing.(Registry values: N4719)
