    Original 1908 Proof Set, Ex: Garrett

    1908 Five-Piece Proof Set PR64 to PR66 NGC. Originally auctioned as lot 1647 in the Oct. 1980 Garrett III auction by Bowers & Ruddy. This set has only recently been certified, and the NGC serial numbers are consecutive. The set includes:
    1908 Cent PR64 Red NGC. A well struck near-Gem with a bright yellow-gold obverse and a dusky orange-red reverse. The obverse has several minute carbon flecks.
    1908 Nickel PR66 NGC. A flashy high-grade specimen that has a nearly brilliant obverse and attractive apricot-gold streaks on the reverse. Pristine except for infrequent pinpoint carbon.
    1908 Dime PR66 NGC. A razor-sharp Premium Gem with lovely splashes of peach and blue-green patina. Careful inspection fails to reveal hairlines. A mere 545 proofs were struck, the same mintage as the quarter and half that follow.
    1908 Quarter PR65 NGC. Dappled autumn-brown patina overlies the cream-gray surfaces. The reverse has slightly deeper toning than the obverse. Well struck and impressive.
    1908 Half PR65 NGC. Apricot and pearl-gray toning confirms the originality of this reflective representative. A good strike, with only minor blending on the right shield corner. An interesting strike-through (as made) passes through the I in AMERICA.

    When it came to selling my coin collection I decided they were my first and only choice. They never disappoint. Excellent prices when selling through their auctions and you don’t even have to put any reserves on any coins. Simply the biggest company but more importantly the best.
