Description:
High Quality 1879 Proof Set, PR65 to PR67
1879 Proof Set PR65 to PR67 PCGS. The set includes:

Cent PR65 Red and Brown. Golden-brown color illuminates the obverse, while the reverse of this crisply struck Gem has dusky orange and rose-red hues. A small spot is on the right border of the shield.

Three Cent Nickel PR66 Cameo. A sharply struck premium Gem with gentle sky-blue and tan patina. A faint spot on the wreath and 10 o'clock is hardly noticeable. A low mintage date. The 9 in the date is recut.

Nickel PR66. Intermingled peach and lilac colors endow this needle sharp and lovingly preserved premium Gem. A better date due to a low business strike production. The 1 in the date is repunched.

Dime PR66. Honey and ocean-blue colors bathe this suitably struck and undisturbed premium Gem. The upper reverse has a thin vertical streak of deeper russet patina. Proofs and commercial strikes combined for a scant 15,100 pieces.

Quarter PR66. Rich navy-blue and chestnut colors enrich the boldly struck and impressively preserved surfaces. Only 14,700 quarters were struck in 1879, 1,100 of which were proofs. Heavy production of Silver Dollars this year reduced the other silver denominations to token mintages.

Half Dollar PR66. A meticulously struck premium Gem that is awash in aquamarine and apricot colors. A carefully preserved specimen of this challenging date, since a mere 5,900 proofs and business strikes were issued.

Trade Dollar PR67. A razor-sharp example that features exquisite surfaces and vibrant powder-blue and peach patina. This beautiful specimen would be a highlight of any collection of proof Trade Dollars. The reverse legends are lightly die doubled. A popular proof only issue. Population: 8 in 67, none finer (9/04).

Morgan Dollar PR66. Beautiful sea-green, gold, and rose colors alternate across this unmarked premium Gem. The centers are not fully struck, but the remainder of the devices are bold. A small speck of debris is below the C in AMERICA. Population: 14 in 65, 8 finer (9/04).(#2325) (Registry values: N991)
