    Impressive 1876 Minors and Silver Proof Set
    Eight Pieces, PR64 to PR66 Cameo, With Case

    Eight-Piece 1876 Proof Set PR64 to PR66 Cameo PCGS. This Centennial-year set includes:

    Cent PR65 Red Cameo PCGS.
    Boldly contrasted and carefully preserved with a mixture of lemon and orange color.

    Three Cent Nickel PR66 Cameo PCGS.
    Rose, gold, and lilac tints grace carefully preserved surfaces that are otherwise nickel-white.

    Nickel PR66 Cameo PCGS.
    Bright and faintly gold-tinged. A small planchet flaw is noted to the right of the date.

    Dime PR65 Cameo PCGS.
    Gorgeous champagne shadings drape each side. The contrast is exquisite, as is the eye appeal.

    Twenty Cent PR64 Cameo PCGS.
    Strong eye appeal for this second proof twenty cent issue. Golden toning with a blush of orange settles over each side.

    Quarter PR65 Cameo PCGS.
    Golden-rose peripheral toning thins out at the centers. A beautifully contrasted Gem.

    Half Dollar PR65 Cameo PCGS.
    Rich green-gold color at the peripheries and bordering the eagle on the reverse. Flashy silver-white elsewhere with attractively frosted devices.

    Trade Dollar PR64 Cameo PCGS.
    Deep blue-green and gold-orange toning embraces much of each side, but the mirrors shine through. Crisply struck with a small contact mark to the right of the wheat on the obverse.

    The set also comes with a case, heavily handled so that the outer layer has largely worn away, exposing the wood beneath, but the royal-purple interior with eight recesses for the coins is virtually pristine.

    The marketing was exceptional from the photos to the ads in Civil War Times and North South Trader for the cross over people!!! I have had many emails from my Civil War collecting fraternity that saw these and I saw them at the national show in Nashville/Franklin in early December.
