    Fully Original 1896 Six-Coin Proof Set

    Complete 1896 Six-Piece Proof Set PCGS. This lot consists of a complete 1896 proof set containing the following six coins that have been certified by PCGS:
    Indian Cent PR64 Red and Brown, about half of the obverse is a muted chocolate color, the remainder is honey-golden, one small abrasion is seen on the Indian's cheek, the reverse possesses a much brighter golden-orange and tan appearance;
    Liberty Nickel, PR66 Cameo, well defined and carefully preserved with a mild cameo effect and some very light pastel-rose and blue color;
    Barber Dime PR66, original lilac, purple, and sea-green colors meld on each side in a somewhat mottled fashion, close examination reveals a few minor contact marks on Liberty's cheek under the toning;
    Barber Quarter PR66, similar colorations as the previous coin overlay the obverse, the reverse is predominately cobalt-blue, especially as the coin is seen at various angles;
    Barber Half Dollar PR68, an amazing coin, again with deep violet and blue-green toning that blankets both sides, the surfaces are essentially perfect even under close examination, and the fields are deeply mirrored throughout; and a
    Morgan Dollar PR68, a perfect match to the other silver coins in this beautiful set, the rich toning displays similar, previously mentioned colors with the addition of some magenta at the central regions, both sides are boldly defined, save for a few hair strands over Liberty's ear.
    We believe this is one of the finest surviving 1896 proof sets in existence. It is indeed a rare opportunity to be able to offer such a magnificent fully original early proof set that, somehow, over the years has managed to stay intact.(#2376) (Registry values: N991)

    I received the catalog and was very impressed with its color illustrations, descriptions and attractive layout. (It has better production values than the New York houses.)
