    1863 Seven-Piece Proof Set, PR62-64,
    All PCGS-Certified, With Contemporary Box

    1863 1C Seven-Piece Proof Set, PR62-64 PCGS, With Box. This early proof set includes:

    Indian Cent -- Questionable Color -- Proof Genuine. Unc Details. The coin has undoubtedly been cleaned, and the color is light as a consequence, but it doesn't appear to have been artificially lightened beyond that. Fully struck and shallowly mirrored.

    Three Cent Silver PR64. Mottled steel-gray and light blue toning covers each side of this moderately reflective proof striking.

    Seated Half Dime PR63. Similarly toned to the three cent silver with gray and light blue toning, here seen with a touch of rose patina as well. No obvious contact marks, fully struck.

    Seated Dime PR63. The glassy, mirrored fields enhance the light blue and pale reddish patina seen over each side. Again, no obvious contact marks, just light hairlines from cleaning.

    Seated Quarter PR64. The same blue-rose toning is seen here, but more variegated on the obverse and even on the reverse. There are several long streaks of brilliance that interrupt the toning on the obverse, but these are not defects.

    Seated Half Dollar PR63. Minimally hairlined, but an old cleaning has left the surfaces brighter than expected. Toned similarly to the other silver coins in this set. Absolute pinpoint-sharp striking detail.

    Seated Dollar PR62. Even pale reddish patina lightly covers each side. Remarkably bright mirrors in the fields, especially considering the grade. Fully defined throughout.

    Seven-Piece Box. This contemporary box is remarkably compact, only 3 1/2" square. It does not appear it could hold seven coins but clearly it could as there are round insets for all seven pieces. The past 153 years have not been kind to this box as the back has become detached. The only way it is held loosely together is by keeping the two curved clasps on the front closed. The high points are scuffed. No identifying imprints are seen. Red velvet backing where the coins rest, the inside top is silk.(Registry values: N991)
