    Exceptional Six-Piece 1893 Proof Set, PR65-PR66

    Six-Piece 1893 1C Proof Set, All NGC-Certified. This magnificent, well-matched set includes:

    1893 Cent PR65 Red NGC.
    Deeply mirrored with even red color over each side. A lovely, problem-free copper coin.

    1893 Nickel PR66 NGC.
    The fields are nicely reflective, and generally present as brilliant. However, when closely examined faint golden-lilac patina is evident.

    1893 Dime PR66 NGC.
    The illimitable depth of reflectivity in the fields provides considerable (although unacknowledged) contrast against the frosted devices. Pale golden-rose toning on the obverse and dazzling brilliance on the reverse.

    1893 Quarter PR66 NGC.
    Similar to the dime, the fields are deeply reflective and the devices heavily frosted, yet no Cameo designation is acknowledged. The overall brilliance is only interrupted by slight reddish-russet patina in the right obverse field.

    1893 Half Dollar PR65 NGC.
    A well-produced proof, this coin also has nicely mirrored fields with a significant presence of mint frost over the devices. Just the slightest hint of rose toning is noted on the obverse, while the reverse is completely brilliant.

    1893 Dollar PR66 NGC.
    The fields display unfathomable depth of mirrored reflectivity, and set against them are the nicely frosted devices--yet no Cameo designation is indicated. Softly defined in the centers, as usually seen on this date. Brilliant throughout. Only 792 proofs were struck, the same proof mintage as the other silver coins within the present set.
