    1908 Five-Piece Proof Set, PR65 to PR67
    All PCGS Certified
    Beautifully Toned and Perfectly Matched

    1908 1C Five-Piece Proof Set, PR65-67 PCGS. This incredible 1908 five-piece minor proof set, cent through half dollar, is beautifully matched. The set is housed in consecutively numbered PCGS holders grading PR65 Red and Brown through PR67. This is likely an original set that has remained together since issued in 1908. Included are:

    Cent PR65 Red and Brown. The Indian Head design appears here in its second to last year of issue. This Gem features a primarily cherry-red and fire-orange obverse with a pronounced woodgrain appearance, while the reverse showcases bright shades of lemon-gold, mint-green, and powder-blue color. Flashy and nicely contrasted.

    Nickel PR66. Eye-appealing shades of peach-orange and yellow-gold dominate each side, revealing additional accents of rose, sky-blue, and pale green. Eye appeal is phenomenal.

    Dime PR67. The fields remain glassy beneath shades of iridescent rose, orange, magenta, green, and blue toning. The latter color completely dominates the central reverse. The quality of this proof Barber dime is certainly fitting for the esteemed Superb Gem grade.

    Quarter PR67. This coin in unbelievable. Rose and lavender centers progress to ice-blue, green, and yellow borders on the obverse. Orange and golden color adheres to the reverse rim, merging with ocean-blue interiors. The glassy mirrors generate partial contrast against the fully struck devices. Quality is spectacular.

    Half Dollar PR66. Dusky shades of lavender and chestnut-gold grace this Premium Gem proof. Additional blue, violet, and orange accents complement the original patina. The underlying proof mirrors retain much original brilliance and greatly enhance the toning present.
