    1865 Nine-Piece Proof Set, PR63-PR66
    All NGC-Certified

    1865 Nine-Piece Proof Set, PR63-PR66 NGC. All nine coins from this historic year are NGC-certified and sequentially numbered. Included are:

    Cent PR63 Brown. Streaks of deep blue and brown are seen over each side. Almost carbon-free.

    Two Cent Piece PR66 Red and Brown. Picky, picky. The reverse is mellowed ever-so-slightly; otherwise the coin appears full red. Deeply mirrored.

    Three Cent Silver PR65. The brightly reflective fields serve to enliven the rose and cobalt-blue toning seen on each side, which is deeper in hue toward the margins.

    Three Cent Nickel PR65. Pale pink and ice-blue patina is just barely noticeable. An attractive, although shallowly mirrored proof.

    Half Dime PR64 Cameo. The interiors are nearly brilliant and the margins on each side are surrounded by medium density golden-rose toning. Nicely contrasted.

    Dime PR64. Brightly mirrored with attractive toning around the margins. Noticeable contrast is evident on each side.

    Quarter PR65 Cameo. Rich red and cobalt-blue toning dominate the reverse, while the obverse shows an almost brilliant center with toning around the margin. Well-contrasted.

    Half Dollar PR63. A few light hairlines explain the grade. Otherwise the surfaces are mostly untoned with a slight haze in the fields. Light toning is scattered around the peripheries.

    Dollar PR64. The fields show evidence of vigorous die polishing that give an unfathomable depth of reflectivity to each side. The obverse shows blue-gray patina while the reverse is rose-golden.

    The outcome of the auction far exceeded my best hopes and would not likely have been as successful with out your sound advice on where to present the coin and how best to set the reserve. Throughout the process your availability , support and knowledge were exceptional.
