    Impressive NGC-Certified 1872 Proof Set

    1872 Ten-Piece Proof Set PR64 to PR66 NGC. The pieces have consecutive NGC serial numbers, and the similar rich toning throughout the silver coins further suggests that the proof set is original, rather than individually assembled. The set includes:

    Indian Cent PR64 Red and Brown. A well struck orange-gold beauty with apple-green and russet freckles here and there across the reverse border.

    Two Cent Piece PR64 Red. This exactingly struck piece has a gorgeous peach and gold obverse. The reverse displays distributed tiny toning flecks.

    Three Cent Silver PR65. A flashy and nicely impressed Gem with rich lime and rose-red toning.

    Three Cent Nickel PR65. Attractive light gold streaks cross unmarked and nicely mirrored surfaces. The strike is decent although not absolute.

    Shield Nickel PR66. A lightly toned and gorgeous Premium Gem. Intricately struck, and the obverse is strongly die doubled.

    Seated Half Dime PR65. A sharply struck and prominently mirrored Gem with aquamarine and champagne-rose tints. A single spot is noted beneath the A in STATES.

    Seated Dime PR65. Awash in forest-green and crimson. Refreshingly void of contact, and only a few grains on the upper left portion of the cereal wreath prevent a full strike.

    Seated Quarter PR65. This needle-sharp and undisturbed Gem is deeply patinated in plum, sea-green, and lime-gold.

    Seated Half Dollar PR65. Boldly struck save for the usual slight softness on the eagle's left ankle. Ocean-blue, mauve, and peach patina bathes this lovely Gem. A couple of faint mint-made roller marks cross the upper reverse.

    Seated Dollar PR65. Fully toned in fire-red and blue-green swirls. The strike is complete, and only a wispy slide mark on the cheek limits the grade. The reverse is nicely die doubled, as is often the case for proof Motto Seated dollars.(Registry values: N1793)
