    Six Piece PCGS Certified 1891 Proof Set

    An 1891 Proof Set PR62 to PR64 PCGS. The set includes:

    1891 1C Cent PR64 Brown PCGS. The otherwise dark-brown surfaces reveal some blue-green and lilac undertones on this is sharply struck specimen.

    1891 Nickel PR64 PCGS. Razor-sharp in strike, both sides are overlaid in light, mottled silver-gray hues. Mild reflectivity in the fields forms a backdrop to the frosty textured devices. One small handling mark is seen on the lower left upright of the V.

    1891 Dime PR64 PCGS. This is a crisply impressed example whose proof qualities are somewhat subdued beneath deep sea-green and cobalt toning. There are a few small lint marks (as struck), but no sizeable contact marks.

    1891 Quarter PR64 PCGS. A crisp specimen striking, with gorgeous deep violet-rose and electric-blue toning over the well preserved, unmarked surfaces.

    1891 Half Dollar PR63 PCGS. The sharp, originally preserved features are ringed in mostly charcoal-violet, cobalt, and rose toning. There are one or two light to moderate handling marks on each side.

    1891 Silver Dollar PR62 PCGS. Charcoal-violet, electric-green, and rose patina overlays both sides and yields to lighter coloration on the portrait of Liberty. There are no outwardly distracting blemishes--but faint slide marks are evident on the cheek under close examination. Sharply impressed, save for a bit of weakness above the ear.
