    Impressive Nine-Piece 1868 Proof Set
    All PCGS and CAC Certified

    1868 1C Nine-Piece Proof Set PCGS. CAC. Included are:

    Indian Cent PR62 Red and Brown (CAC Green sticker).
    Fully detailed in all areas. The reverse is not quite medallically aligned relative to the obverse as usually seen. It is approximately 10% off a perfect medallic alignment.

    Three Cent Silver PR63 (CAC Gold sticker).
    Deeply mirrored and remarkably clean for the grade (thus the gold CAC sticker). The devices also show a slight but noticeable overlay of mint frost which gives the coin a moderate cameo appearance. Generally brilliant with just a hint of peripheral color.

    Three Cent Nickel PR64 (CAC Green sticker).
    The fields are deeply mirrored on this low-mintage date, and the surfaces overall show just the slightest hint of golden color.

    Half Dime PR60 (CAC Gold sticker).
    Lightly hairlined, especially so for a PR60, and nicely mirrored in the fields. Generally brilliant with just a touch of rose around the margins.

    Shield Nickel PR65 (CAC Green sticker).
    Fully struck and lacking the often-seen die cracks. The fields are deeply reflective and the surfaces are well-matched on each side. Pale rose and lilac toning can be made out, but the underlying brilliance is dominant on each side.

    Dime PR62 (CAC Gold sticker).
    The fields show remarkably deep mirrors and only the slightest hairlines. The centers are brilliant with light russet around the obverse periphery.

    Quarter PR60 (CAC Green sticker).
    Bright overall with nicely reflective fields. Each side shows a light overlay of golden-rose toning with a couple of dashes of blue at the margin.

    Half Dollar PR60 (CAC Green sticker).
    Razor-sharp striking definition on each side. The surfaces are bright from a mild cleaning and there is just the slightest accent of color at the margins.

    Silver Dollar PR61 (CAC Green sticker).
    The astonishingly deep mirrors in the fields are counterbalanced by noticeable frost over the devices which gives the coin a moderate cameo appearance. The surfaces are nearly brilliant and the striking details show pinpoint detailing. Lightly hairlined. (Registry values: N991)

    The pre-sale publicity was more than I imagined, and the actual catalog better than I had expected - and my expectations were high!
