    Ten-Piece 1867 Proof Set, PR62 to PR64
    Cent Through Silver Dollar

    Ten-Piece 1867 Proof Set PR62 to PR64 PCGS. The PCGS serial numbers are consecutive. The set, housed in a custom wood holder, includes:

    Cent PR64 Red and Brown.
    Well struck and exquisite with intermingled orange and lilac patina.

    Two Cent PR64 Red and Brown.
    A needle-sharp near-Gem, honey-brown and lavender, with essentially undisturbed surfaces.

    Three Cent Nickel PR63.
    Nickel-gray with a curly mint-made lintmark on Liberty's jaw. Crisply struck overall.

    Three Cent Silver PR63.
    Golden-brown, ruby-red, and ocean-blue colors dominate the patina. Strongly struck. Only 4,000 business strikes and 625 proofs were issued.

    No Rays Nickel PR62.
    Fletcher's IIa Reverse, also used on business strikes. A meticulously struck dove-gray piece with a few wispy hairlines on the reverse.

    Half Dime PR62.
    Mauve and electric-blue colors embrace this well-defined, lightly hairlined piece. Just 8,000 commercial strikes were coined, which contributes demand for the 625 proofs.

    Dime PR63.
    Fortin-103. Navy-blue and golden-brown patina cedes to a lightly toned reverse center. The 18 in the date is lightly repunched, visible primarily above the base of the 1. The associated business strike production was low, limited to 6,000 pieces.

    Quarter PR63.
    Orange, mauve, and sky-blue colors bathe this faintly hairlined piece. Solid eye appeal. Due to Gresham's Law and fractional currency, silver coins did not circulate except in the Old West in 1867. Only 20,000 business strikes and 625 proofs were released.

    Half Dollar PR63.
    An exquisitely struck example that has deep honey, aqua, and navy-blue toning. The similar coloration on the silver coins in this set suggests an original set, or at least a set that was stored together for many years. A few hairlines and handling marks appear in the fields.

    Silver Dollar PR63.
    This boldly struck Seated dollar has carefully preserved surfaces and deep apple-green, mauve, tan, and pearl-gray patina. As is the case with the other silver coins in the present set, only 625 proofs were struck.
