    Premium Gem 1891 Silver Proof Set

    1891 Silver Proof Set. PR66 NGC. Each of the four coins in this set are similarly graded by NGC as PR66. All four pieces have cameo contrast, but none are designated as Cameo proofs. Each of these pieces are similarly toned and appear to be nicely matched. The following are included:

    Dime. The obverse of this piece has light silver-gray color that is accented by hints of rose toning at the borders. The reverse is deeply toned in steel and sea-green. Both sides have deeply mirrored fields with lustrous devices that combines to create light cameo contrast.

    Quarter. Most of the obverse on this cameo proof is brilliant white with a crescent of deep iridescence at the upper right. The reverse is fully toned in steel-blue and dark gray-gold.

    Half Dollar. A sharply struck Premium Gem proof, this piece is toned over most of the obverse and all of the reverse. Only a small area of the obverse at the immediate center has light silver color, gradually changing to light gold and deep blue and lilac. The reverse is fully toned in similar colors.

    Silver Dollar. This deeply toned example has a tiny patch of brilliant silver color at the center of the obverse. The balance on both sides is deep lilac and steel-blue.
