    1891 Proof Set PR65 Red to PR67 NGC

    1891 Proof Set PR65 Red to PR67 NGC. An 1891 Proof Set PR65 Red to PR67 NGC. The set includes:

    1891 1C Cent PR65 Red NGC.
    The fiery-red surfaces reveal some cobalt-blue and lilac accents on this is sharply struck specimen. Highly reflective fields and well preserved on both sides.

    1891 Nickel PR66 Cameo NGC.
    Razor-sharp striking details are seen on silver-gray surfaces that show faint touches of apricot color on the obverse. Frosty-textured devices and mildly reflective fields produce noteworthy cameo contrast.

    1891 Dime PR67 NGC. This is a crisply impressed Superb Gem whose reflective qualities are somewhat muted beneath deep electric-blue and rose toning. There are no contact marks or hairlines on either side.

    1891 Quarter PR67 NGC.
    A lovely specimen with gorgeous, deep violet-rose and cobalt-blue toning over the immaculately preserved surfaces. Fully struck.

    1891 Half Dollar PR67 NGC.
    The design elements are fully struck, and the surfaces are layered in beautiful electric-blue and rose coloration. There are one or two trivial contact marks, but they are too minor to limit the grade.

    1891 Silver Dollar PR66 NGC.
    Astoundingly deep purple-violet, electric-blue, and rose patina overlays both sides, yielding to lighter shades on the eagle's breast and wing feathers. There are no overtly distracting marks or hairlines, but a bit of striking weakness is evident on the hair strands just above Liberty's ear.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
