    Exquisite 1893 Proof Set, Cent through Silver Dollar

    A remarkably beautiful six-piece set of 1893 proof coinage, all NGC certified as follows:

    Cent PR 66 Red. Bright orange splashes of color on each side.

    Nickel PR 67. Fresh, brightly mirrored surfaces with a light dusting of golden color.

    Dime PR 67. A breathtaking cameo with golden-violet peripheral toning that further sets off the stark contrast.

    Quarter PR 66. Similarly appealing contrast between the fields and devices, with just a touch of color at the edges.

    Half Dollar PR 66. Another glorious cameo proof that could grade even higher save for a tiny contact mark in front of Liberty's upper lip.

    Dollar PR 66. Mostly brilliant with contrast that is not quite as impressive as on the other silver issues, and there is a hint of flatness over Liberty's ear that is not uncommon on proof 1893 dollars.
