    1898 Six-Piece Proof Set, PR64-65
    All NGC-Certified, Some CAC-Endorsed

    1898 1C Six-Piece Proof Set, PR64-PR65 NGC. This likely original, well-matched six-piece proof set has all the non-gold denominations and each coin is NGC-certified in consecutively numbered holders. Included are:

    Cent PR65 Red and Brown CAC. Very little Brown is seen on either side of this splendidly preserved cent. Most of the color present ranges from cherry-red to yellow-red. Fully struck.

    Nickel PR65 Cameo. Only the slightest golden streakiness is present. The coin is only kept from an even higher grade by a couple of contact marks in the right obverse field. Noticeably contrasted.

    Dime PR65 ★ Cameo CAC. Outstanding surface preservation, as indicated by the Star designation, each side is brilliant there is strong field-device contrast evident.

    Quarter PR65 Cameo. Most of each side is brilliant and the cameo contrast underscores the attention to quality given to proofs produced in 1898. The fields are exceptionally deep in their mirrored reflectivity.

    Half Dollar PR64 Cameo CAC. Almost an all-brilliant proof with just a dab of golden peripheral color present on the reverse. The contrast is evident between the fields and devices on each side and there are no obvious or detracting marks on either side.

    Dollar PR64 Cameo CAC. The contrast is abundantly evident on each side and the mirrored reflectivity as well as the overall appearance of this dollar is well balanced from side to side. Just the slightest hint of peripheral golden color is evident around the peripheries.
