Light-weight standard silver pieces were designed to be issued in exchange for redeemed fractional currency, which would then yield a profit for the Treasury. Although the series was never adopted, the Mint sold sets for $15 that included the three designs employed for each denomination (dime, quarter, and half dollar). Wafts iridescent blue accent the lovely medium gray toning. Sharply struck, and there are just a couple of minor contact marks. (PCGS# 60933)
