    1899 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR64-67
    All NGC-Certified

    1899 $1 Six-Piece Proof Set PR64-67 NGC. The set includes:

    Cent PR65 Red NGC. Bright, even red patina is seen over each side. The fields are moderately reflective on the obverse, deeply so on the reverse. The only mentionable flaw is a small carbon spot in the field just below the chin of the Indian.

    Nickel PR64 NGC. Good reflectivity on each side, the grade would be even higher were it not for some incidental contact in the left obverse field and a few small specks of carbon.

    Dime PR67 NGC. A strong case for a Cameo designation could be made, the visual impact is perhaps restrained by the unusual streaks of multicolored iridescence on each side. Technically, there is little to comment upon.

    Quarter PR67 NGC. Well-matched on each side with deep rose patina over most of the surfaces and surrounded at the margins by deep blue toning. A sharply defined, problem-free proof striking.

    Half Dollar PR64 NGC. Again, like the dime above, a convincing case could be made for cameo contrast. The centers are just shy of brilliant with pale rose ceding to slightly deeper hues toward the margin, and a thin ring of blue covering the denticles. A couple of shallow slide marks account for the grade.

    Dollar PR66 NGC. Splendid toning is seen over each side with the centers light rose, deepening toward the rims, then the peripheries surrounded by deep blue. We see no technical problems worthy of comment.

    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.
