1886 Seven-Piece Proof Set
Cent Through Silver Dollar, PR65 to PR67
Each Coin With CAC Approval
1886 Seven-Piece Proof Set, PCGS-Certified. Each Coin CAC. Indian cent through Morgan dollar. The set includes:

1886 Indian Cent, Type One PR66 Red and Brown PCGS. CAC.
The lowest feather points between I and C in AMERICA. This piece boasts a needle-sharp strike with a prevailing burgundy tone with some pinkish tones on the obverse high points. The obverse on its own would likely merit a Brown designation, but the reverse would garner a Red or Red and Brown, the fields bright orange with only slight mellowing, the devices a touch more mellowed but still mostly Red.

1886 Three Cent Nickel PR65 PCGS. CAC.
A proof-only issue, struck in the amount of 4,290 pieces. This piece is grayish-white to the naked eye, but a loupe reveals a sprinkling of powder-gray toning and a slight pinkish cast at the obverse rims, golden on the reverse. A tiny, dotlike planchet defect and a lintmark behind the hair ribbon are inconsequential.

1886 Liberty Nickel PR66 PCGS. CAC.
Also struck to the extent of 4,290 proofs, but the 1886's status as the "second key" in the series behind the 1885 elevates the demand for this date. This piece boasts a full strike (even on the lower ear of corn) with pink, blue, and iridescent obverse hues and light gold prevailing on the reverse. A small planchet indent between 18 is as made.

1886 Seated Dime PR66 PCGS. CAC.
The strike is surprisingly flat on the head and correspondingly on the bowknot at lower reverse, while the details are well brought up elsewhere. The field are reflective but the luster is subdued by heavy patina, copper-pink on the obverse and aqua on the reverse. The silver coins of 1886 each had recorded proof mintages of 886 pieces for each denomination.

1886 Seated Quarter PR67 Cameo PCGS. CAC.
A beautiful example of this low-mintage issue (proofs and business strikes), well-contrasted on both sides despite a moderate layer of patina, largely champagne-pink with a bluish crescent on the obverse, deep jade and aqua on the reverse. No visible contact marks and a full strike make this one a keeper. Population: 7 in 67 Cameo, 0 finer (7/13).

1886 Seated Half PR67 PCGS. CAC.
Low-mintage in both circulation strike and proof formats. A stunning and exceedingly well-mirrored piece, featuring a small window of brilliance on each side surrounded by copper-pink ceding to exquisite ocean-blue near the rims on each side. If this piece had a Cameo designation in addition, we would not quibble in the least. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (7/13).

1886 Morgan Dollar PR67 PCGS. CAC.
Much field reflectivity penetrates through the moderately deep patina, where aqua and pinkish tones compete for territory. Even under magnification, there are simply no mentionable signs of contact or other distractions, although the loupe does reveal an abundance of eye appeal and an absolutely full strike. A great-looking example of this well-produced issue. Population: 3 in 67, 0 finer (7/13).
