    1883 10-Piece Proof Set, PR63-PR66
    All PCGS-Certified

    1883 10-Piece Proof Set PCGS. Included are:

    Cent PR64 Red and Brown. The surfaces are colorful with much remaining mint red that is interspersed with light brown in the obverse fields and mint green on the reverse.

    Three Cent Nickel PR66. Moderately reflective fields highlight the pale pastel toning seen over each side.

    Shield Nickel PR65. Brilliant throughout with moderate proof mirroring in the fields. A couple of small contact marks and strike-throughs on the reverse define the grade.

    No Cents Nickel PR64. Deeply mirrored fields enliven the occasional streaks of golden patina on each side.

    With Cents Nickel PR64. Hazy pastel iridescence covers each side of this attractive near-Gem proof.

    Dime PR64 Cameo. Each side is almost brilliant, except for a slight accent of pale golden at the margins. Very deeply mirrored.

    Quarter PR64+ Cameo. The surfaces are bright and completely untoned on each side with deeply reflective proof fields. This depth of reflectivity establishes the "black" background for the white-on-black cameo effect.

    Half Dollar PR64 Cameo. Another all-brilliant proof type coin, this one also with exceptionally deep mirrors in the fields and noticeably contrasting frosted devices.

    Trade Dollar PR63 Cameo. The larger format of the Trade dollar and subsequent larger field area gives this piece even more mirrored flash than the quarter and half dollar above. Brilliant throughout, the devices are frosted and show noticeable contrast on each side.

    Morgan Dollar PR63 Cameo. Another exceptional Cameo type coin, and again one with very deep mirrors in the fields. The devices on each side are well-balanced and display pleasing mint frost.
