    Exquisite Matched Toned Top-of-the-Line 1903 Proof Set, PR66 to PR68

    1903 Six-Piece Proof Set PR66 to PR68 NGC. An exquisite six-coin well-matched 1903 proof set, with each piece displaying deep and beautiful original toning. Proof mintages for the Indian cent and Liberty nickel are recorded as 1,790 pieces, with 755 coins each for the Barber dime, quarter, and half, and the Morgan dollar. The set includes:

    1903 Cent PR66 Red NGC. Reddish-orange with yellow highpoints on the obverse. The reverse is deep pinkish-red, beautifully brilliant on each side, sharp, and free of distractions.

    1903 Nickel PR68 NGC. An exquisite and totally exemplary specimen of this midseries issue, with ineffable ice-blue rim toning complementing a fuchsia center on the obverse. The reverse offers marvelous sage-yellow coloration. Crisply struck throughout. A tiny dark spot is noted near star 13.

    1903 Dime PR66 NGC. Deep aqua, orange, and magenta patina on the obverse that somewhat impedes the luster, more moderate blue-green dazzling color on the reverse, sharp and essentially contact-free.

    1903 Quarter PR68 NGC. Canary-yellow obverse fields with daubs of mauve, aqua, and gray on the device. The lustrous reverse displays lighter aquamarine and pinkish-silver surfaces. Sharply struck throughout, even at the right shield corner.

    1903 Half PR68 NGC. Mottled amber-gold, cobalt-blue, orange, and pinkish-silver surfaces on both sides with some irregular untoned silver areas, incredibly lustrous and equally sharp throughout, just a hint of weakness on the shield corner.

    1903 Dollar PR68 NGC. Lovely salmon-colored rims with blue-green centers on each side, contact-free but somewhat softly struck on the eagle's breast.

    An incredibly toned, original proof set with well-matched coins such as this set, including several pieces at or near the top of the NGC Census, is a rare and wonderful find, not soon to be repeated.(Registry values: N1793)
