    1883 10-Piece NGC-Certified Proof Set
    PR62 to PR66+ Cameo
    Five Coins With CAC Approval

    1883 1C 10-Piece Proof Set, PR62 to PR66+ Cameo NGC. The coins are well-matched and individually certified in modern NGC holders. Includes:

    Cent PR65 Brown. CAC. A fully struck, carbon-free Gem with vivid copper-red, burgundy, olive, green, and russet toning in the mirrored fields. A partial print in the left obverse margin appears only at certain angles.

    Three Cent Nickel PR66. CAC. Golden-toned and fully struck, this high-end, CAC-approved proof displays frosty devices and modest mirroring in the fields. An important issue for three cent nickel collectors due to the scarcity of business strikes from this year.

    Shield Nickel PR66 Cameo. The preservation of this piece is superb, complemented by modest field-device contrast on each side. A hint of light champagne toning warms the surfaces.

    Liberty Nickel -- No Cents -- PR66. CAC. CAC liked this coin for the grade, and for good reason -- it is needle-sharp and well-contrasted, with no visible imperfections. Light golden toning graces each side.

    Liberty Nickel -- With Cents -- PR65. CAC. A well-preserved example of this final 1883 nickel type, showing just a touch of softness on the corn ear to the left of the wreath bow. Light golden toning on each side complements a hint of cameo contrast.

    Dime PR64 Cameo. F-103, R.3. A brilliant, modestly contrasted near-Gem with no distracting contact marks. A touch of strike softness affects Liberty's temple and the upper-left portion of the wreath.

    Quarter PR62. Briggs 1-A, Flynn-MPD-001. The upper loops of misplaced date numerals are evident in the dentils below the 83 on the proof obverse die of this issue. This coin is boldly struck and brilliant, with subtle contrast on the reverse. Light contact marks limit the grade.

    Half Dollar PR64+ Cameo. A sharp, well-contrasted proof with brilliant, minimally marked surfaces. Cameo examples of this issue are elusive in finer grades.

    Trade Dollar PR64 Cameo. The year 1883 saw the last regular production of the Trade dollar in proof format. This Choice Cameo is needle-sharp and brilliant, showing good contrast and pleasing preservation. a daub of russet toning appears near star 1.

    Morgan Dollar PR66+ Cameo. CAC. The gem of the set, this high-end Cameo proof Morgan dollar displays bold definition and exceptional preservation. A tiny spot of violet toning beneath the N in UNUM is the only reliable pedigree marker. The coin is brilliant and well-contrasted.
