Description:
Memorable 1879 Eight-Piece Proof Set
1879 Proof Set PR65 to PR67 NGC. The set includes:

Cent PR65 Red and Brown. A needle sharp strike with flashes of orange and carmine patina primarily on the obverse. A tiny frost break on the cheek limits the grade.

Three Cent Nickel PR66. A shimmering, essentially untoned specimen with appreciable contrast on the obverse. .

Nickel PR66. Modestly mirrored beneath delicate golden-rose patina. Remnants of the underdigit are visible with the aid of magnification.

Dime PR65. Moderately contrasted with crescents of rich russet and blue toning on each side. Proofs and commercial strikes combine for a scant mintage of 15,100 pieces.

Quarter PR67. An elliptical area of brilliance on the obverse is surrounded by delicate peach-gold shades. Deeper steel-violet and turquoise toning blankets the reverse. A total of only 14,700 quarters were struck in 1879, 1,100 of which were proofs.

Half Dollar PR67 . The obverse, like the quarter, features a window of brilliance, but here it is more noticeably outlined in amber and aquamarine shades. Steel-violet and turquoise toning is almost identical to the previous coin. A carefully preserved specimen of this challenging date, since a mere 5,900 proofs and business strikes were issued.

Trade Dollar PR67. Deep multicolored toning, deep enough to effectively subdue the underlying reflective qualities on the reverse, leaves a few irregular areas of near-brilliance on each side. A popular proof-only issue.

Morgan Dollar PR66. Well defined beneath a rich coating of blue, violet, and antique-golden toning that may be a little deep for some collector's tastes, but the originality and Superb quality of this specimen is undeniable.
