    Popular 1936 Proof Set
    Gem to Superb Gem

    1936 1C-50C Proof Set PR65 to PR67 NGC. The set includes:

    1936 Satin Finish Cent PR65 Red. The obverse is decisively struck with a prooflike gleam, pale copper-orange with a touch of green at the right rim. The reverse has deeper sun-orange and magenta colors which veer into violet at parts of the margins.

    1936 Satin Finish Nickel PR67. CAC. Vibrant patina is the prime characteristic of this carefully preserved Superb Gem. The satin-smooth surfaces are richly toned sky-blue and gold over the obverse, while the reverse sports mostly the latter color, only more intense and deeper, almost to peach-gold. Exquisite visual appeal.

    1936 Dime PR67. The low-mintage favorite and key to its short series, the 1936 dime enjoys unending eye appeal, particularly among high-end examples such as this PR67 specimen. Both sides are expertly preserved with a bold gleam beneath blue and gold patina, lighter on the obverse with a more dusky reverse that shows a partial fingerprint at upper right.

    1936 Quarter PR66. CAC. This Premium Gem gleams softly through a moderate-thickness layer of gray-based patina. The toning starts off colorless to the left but steadily shifts toward gold at the right. The area around the I in LIBERTY offers a distinctive patch of mustard-gold.

    1936 Half PR66. CAC. The soft gold and rose-gray patina of the obverse, accented in blue at the upper right, takes a more intense turn on the reverse. Decisively detailed and pleasingly preserved with strong mirrors visible beneath the toning.
