    1894 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR64-PR66
    All PCGS Certified

    1894 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR64-PR66 PCGS. This is a well-matched set with the silver coins displaying brilliance and toning commonalities. Included are:

    Indian Cent PR64 Red and Brown PCGS. A beautiful Indian cent that is almost full red, the only exception being the face of the Indian, which is deeper blue-lilac in color. Fully struck with moderately reflective proof mirrors.

    Liberty Nickel PR65 PCGS. The deeply reflective mirrors on each side serve to enhance and brighten the pale aqua and rose toning. An impressive Gem proof that appears finer than the stated grade.

    Barber Dime PR66 PCGS. The fields are deeply mirrored and the devices noticeably frosted, making one wonder why this piece was not acknowledged as a cameo. The interiors are mostly brilliant with gradually deepening rose-gold shades toward the margins.

    Barber Quarter PR65 PCGS. Each side is lightly covered with milky-rose colored patina. Like the dime, the mirrors are deeply reflective and the devices noticeably frosted (but not quite to the same degree as the dime). Magnification will be required to locate the few tiny contact marks that limit this impressive coin from an even higher grade.

    Barber Half PR65 PCGS. Again, the fields set up a deep, mirrored background for the lightly frosted devices. And again, the center of each side is brilliant with rich rose-gold toning surrounding the margins. An attractive, upper-end Gem proof.

    Morgan Dollar PR65 PCGS. This is another profoundly mirrored proof whose depth of reflectivity in the fields establishes a sufficiently deep background for the moderately frosted devices to cast a white-on-black contrast. Again, the interiors are mostly brilliant, but here the margins are surrounded by speckled, irregular patches of russet and blue toning. The only fault we can cite on this impressive Gem is slight softness of detail on the hair above Liberty's ear, a common trait on proofs of this year.
