    1881 Eight-Piece Proof Set
    All NGC-Certified, PR63-PR66

    1881 NGC-Certified Proof Set. Included are:

    1881 Cent PR66 Red and Brown. Brightly mirrored fields; the surfaces are mostly red with pale accents of lilac interspersed.

    1881 Three Cent Nickel PR66 Cameo. Each side is mostly brilliant with pale streakiness evident when closely examined.

    1881 Nickel PR65. Pale pastel iridescence is seen on each side of this well-mirrored coin. The strike is notably complete.

    1881 Dime PR64 Cameo. The fields display remarkable depth of reflectivity which sets up the contrast seen against the frosted devices. Brilliant except for an occasional accent of golden-brown around the margins.

    1881 Quarter PR64. Like the dime above, the quarter is also deeply mirrored and mostly brilliant with a light trace of golden around the rims. The devices are also lightly frosted, but not enough to warrant a Cameo designation.

    1881 Half PR65 ★ Cameo. Extraordinary eye appeal. The devices are nicely frosted and set against deep, glassy fields. Untoned centers accent light golden-brown peripheral color. Only 975 proofs were struck in 1881 in addition to a remarkably low 10,000 business strikes.

    1881 Trade Dollar PR63. Light hairlines explain the grade; nevertheless the fields are deeply reflective and both sides are nearly brilliant with just the slightest hint of peripheral color.

    1881 Morgan Dollar PR64. Just as deeply reflective as the Trade dollar, but lighter hairlines are evident. Again, the faces are brilliant with color only evident over the denticles. Fully detailed.
