    1901 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR65-PR67
    Well-Matched Pieces, All NGC-Certified

    1901 1C Six-Piece Proof Set, PR65-PR67 NGC. This impressive, high-grade set includes:

    Cent PR67 Red and Brown. The surfaces approach technical perfection with the only mentionable flaw one that was done in Mint, a planchet flaw in the upper obverse field. The deep cherry-red surfaces show a few dabs of blue on the obverse.

    Nickel PR66. Nicely reflective fields with only the slightest hint of color on each side. Light planchet porosity is seen on obverse out from stars 12 and 13 and on the reverse around the CA in AMERICA.

    Dime PR66. Brightly mirrored fields flash strongly over each side. On the obverse most of that side is covered in deep shades of rose and jade-green. The reverse is only slightly toned. In both cases, the color is enlivened by the mirrored finish.

    Quarter PR66. Attractively toned on each side, and differently colored on each. The obverse displays even cobalt-blue patina, while the reverse has a pale pinkish-rose center that is surrounded by deep blue at the margin. Brightly mirrored fields.

    Half Dollar PR65. Deep blue and rose-colored toning cover the obverse, while the reverse is even blue. Bright mirrors are most evident on the reverse. A scant 813 proofs were issued.

    Dollar PR65. Like the half dollar, the obverse on the dollar has the same color scheme but the toning is more variegated. Again, the reverse is even, deep blue. Lightly hairlined. Nicely mirrored fields. Just 813 proofs were produced.
