    1895 Proof Set, Original PR64-PR66
    NGC Certified Six-Piece Set

    1895 Six-Piece Proof Set, NGC Certified. This original six-piece minor and silver proof set contains examples of each denomination issued that year, including the proof-only 1895 Morgan dollar. The owners of The Virginia Cabinet have retained these coins for many years, only now making them available to a new generation of collectors.

    Each piece is NGC certified, including:

    Cent PR64 Red and Brown. Cameo contrast and subdued orange mint luster, exhibiting a minor flaw at 4 o'clock on the reverse.

    Nickel PR64 CAC. Trivial marks and minuscule spots under hazy champagne toning.

    Dime PR66 CAC. Exhibiting sharp details with light field-device contrast and deep mirrors under dappled gold and iridescent toning.

    Quarter PR66+. Displaying a lovely blend of cobalt-blue and delicate golden-violet toning.

    Half Dollar PR65+ CAC. Showing small areas of silver-white and champagne inside delicate sky-blue and pale gold toning.

    Morgan Silver Dollar PR66+. The proof only 1895 dollar that is the key to the set, displaying silver brilliance and gorgeous sky-blue, gold, and iridescent toning with exceptional eye appeal.


    Although none of the six coins are designated as Cameo pieces, they exhibit varying degrees of cameo contrast. The opportunity to acquire an unquestionably original 1895 proof set should be given full consideration, as most sets in today's marketplace have been assembled from individual offerings in recent years.
