    Lovely 1914 Proof Set
    PR65 to PR66 NGC

    1914 Certified Proof Set PR65 to PR66 NGC. This NGC-certified set contains:

    Cent PR66 Brown. Lustrous matte surfaces with lovely blue and lilac patina accompanying considerable faded mint red. A single tiny spot is visible inside the right wheat ear

    Nickel PR65. Brilliant light gray matte surfaces with hints of champagne toning.

    Dime PR66. Fully mirrored fields with cameo contrast beneath deep gold, blue, and iridescent toning

    Quarter PR66. Deeply mirrored, with lustrous devices and obvious cameo contrast beneath thick green, blue, gold, and iridescent toning

    Half dollar PR66. Nicely mirrored fields and lustrous devices with cameo contrast beneath sky-blue, greenish-yellow, and rose toning on the obverse, mostly rose and gold on the reverse.

    The 1914 silver coins had the lowest mintage of any date in the Barber series. The current 2009 Guide Book records these mintage figures: cent 1,365; nickel 1,275; dime 425; quarter 380; and half dollar 380. The 1914 half dollar is also a business strike rarity, placing additional emphasis on the proofs.
    Although none of the three silver pieces is given the Cameo designation, all three have remarkable contrast beneath the toning. These coins are nicely matched and have apparently remained together for many years--perhaps since they were coined nearly a century ago. All five are fully and intricately defined. The matte proof cent and nickel each have a sculpted appearance.
