    1904 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR65-PR67
    Apparently Original, Three Pieces CAC-Endorsed

    1904 1C Six-Piece Proof Set, PR65-PR67 NGC. This six-piece proof set appears original and each coin is encased in sequentially numbered NGC holders. Included are:

    Cent PR66 Red and Brown. CAC. Iridescent color is seen on each side, but little actual brown is seen. The reverse is slightly muted, but the fields are brightly reflective on each side.

    Nickel PR67. CAC. Pale iridescence is seen on the obverse, while the reverse is mostly ice-blue. The proof fields are bright and deeply mirrored with slight contrast noted between the fields and devices.

    Dime PR66. Medium-density toning is seen over each side, each side a different color. The obverse is red, while the reverse is mostly blue with slight underlying red patina. The obverse is especially well-mirrored.

    Quarter PR66. The similarity in the toning on each of the silver coins strongly suggests this is an original proof set. The obverse is brightly reflective with a pale accent of rose toning, while the reverse is deep reddish-blue.

    Half Dollar PR66. Again, pronounced reddish-blue toning is seen, in this instance in almost equal measures on each side. Moderate reflectivity can be seen through the toning.

    Dollar PR65. CAC. The toning on each side is especially interesting. The pattern suggests a smaller coin lay on each side for an extended period of time, leaving a more or less brilliant circle. Otherwise, the surfaces are the expected deep reddish-blue as seen on the half dollar and quarter.
