    1893 Proof Set. NGC Certified. Included are:
    Cent PR 65 Red. Even, deep red color is seen over each side.
    Nickel PR 66. Well mirrored with just the faintest trace of pinkish-rose patina.
    Dime PR 66. Flashy with good reflectivity in the fields, the obverse shows just the slightest hint of color and the reverse is thoroughly brilliant.
    Quarter PR 66. A slight amount of color can be seen on the lower portion of the obverse while the reverse is completely brilliant. A few small contact marks on the frosted cheek of Liberty limit the upside potential of this coin's grade.
    Half-Dollar PR 65. Hazy pinkish-rose color can be seen over some of the obverse, but again the reverse is brilliant.
    Dollar PR 66. A stunning, deeply mirrored, heavily contrasted proof. Perhaps the nicest coin in the set, the only drawback is a weak strike in centers, over the ear on the obverse and on the eagle's breast feathers on the reverse.
