    1868 10-Piece Proof Set, PR65 to PR67+ Ultra Cameo
    All NGC Certified

    1868 10-Piece Proof Set, PR65 to PR67+ Ultra Cameo NGC. This NGC-certified set is well matched with consecutive certification numbers. Our consignor reports that this is the #1 10-piece proof set for the 1868 date. It includes:

    Cent PR66 Red and Brown. Forest-green, violet, copper-orange, and red-orange hues form a woodgrain pattern over both sides. The fields are deeply reflective, complementing the sharp, satiny devices. One small speck is visible with a loupe at the fourth headdress feather tip.

    Two Cent PR67 Red and Brown Cameo. CAC. Sharp and modestly contrasted with deeply reflective fields. Both sides have an overall golden-orange appearance, although a loupe reveals a faint woodgrain pattern of amber toning over orange-red surfaces. The strike is sharp.

    Three Cent Silver PR66. Razor-sharp and deeply mirrored, warmed by delicate champagne and pale lilac hues. Beautifully preserved.

    Three Cent Nickel, PR67+ Cameo. Brilliant and modestly contrasted, showing reflective fields and pristine, satiny devices. The strike is pinpoint-sharp.

    Shield Nickel PR67. Sharp, satiny devices complement reflective fields, bathed in iridescent light golden toning.

    Half Dime PR67 Cameo. Well struck and modestly contrasted, showing brilliant interiors with slight peripheral champagne color. Minor strike softness is seen as usual on the upper left portion of the wreath.

    Dime PR67+ Ultra Cameo. Fortin-104. Impressively sharp and dramatically contrasted, showing delicate light golden toning over liquidlike fields and satiny devices.

    Quarter PR66 Ultra Cameo. Briggs 2-B. Fully struck and beautifully contrasted, showing delicate champagne toning over satiny devices. The fields display liquidlike mirroring.

    Half Dollar PR66+★ Cameo. CAC. Fully struck with satiny devices and beautifully mirrored fields, showing essentially brilliant surfaces and outstanding preservation. Only a few faint hairlines are visible in the fields.

    Dollar PR65 Ultra Cameo. OC-P2, High R.3. Essentially brilliant throughout, save for freckles of russet and golden toning in the margins. This Gem proof is sharp and starkly contrasted, with incredible depth of mirroring in the fields.
