    Exceptional 1910 Proof Set, PR65 to PR68
    Cent Through Half Dollar

    Five Piece 1910 Proof Set PR65 to PR68 NGC. This important set includes:

    Cent PR65 Red and Brown. Magnificently toned in swaths of cherry-red, orange-gold, and powder-blue. Satiny and exactingly struck with nary a trace of contact. Carbon is virtually impossible to locate. Matte proof Lincoln cents are underappreciated, especially those with exceptionally attractive toning.

    Nickel PR66. Medium honey-gold toning bathes this needle-sharp and prominently mirrored Premium Gem. A minuscule gray spot at 7:30 on the reverse, but otherwise immaculate.

    Dime PR67. A deep blanket of lavender and cobalt-blue dominates the obverse, while the reverse exhibits moderately lighter shades of ocean-blue and canary-gold. The strike is unimprovable, and the surfaces appear undisturbed beneath the patina. A mere 551 proofs were released, and high grade survivors are rarities. Census: 12 in 67, 4 finer without a Cameo designation (11/09).

    Quarter PR67. Richly variegated plum-red, magenta, and electric-blue consumes the obverse. Deep gunmetal-blue occupies the reverse. Both sides are immaculate. The strike is unusually sharp, even on the fletchings and right shield corner. A prize for the connoisseur of originally patinated silver proofs. As with the proof 1910 dime and half dollar, a mere 551 pieces were produced. Census: 23 in 67, 10 finer without a Cameo designation (11/09).

    Half Dollar PR68. Iridescently toned in peach-gold, powder-blue, slate-gray, and apple-green. The remarkably preserved fields are flashy, and the motifs are fully impressed save for the knuckles on the right (facing) claw. Extraordinary quality for this low mintage proof date. Census: 7 in 68, 2 in 68 Cameo, none finer (11/09).
