    1887 Seven-Piece Proof Set

    1887 Proof Set. An affordable quality set that includes both the regular date and overdate version of the three-cent nickel. Individually, they are as follows:
    Indian Cent PR 64 Red and Brown PCGS. Lovely crimson and bright blue overtones.
    Three-Cent Nickel PR 65 PCGS. A bright, gem quality example.
    1887/6 Three-Cent Nickel PR 65 PCGS. Recutting also shows on the second 8. Of just about the same scarcity as the regular date.
    Liberty Nickel PR 64 PCGS. The obverse is draped in antique-gold, with a dash of pastel-blue about either border.
    Seated Liberty Dime PR 62 PCGS. Watery surfaces with a hint of haziness and indistinct detail on Liberty's head.
    Seated Liberty Quarter PR 63 PCGS. A fine looking, virtually untoned cameo.
    Seated Liberty Half-Dollar PR 60 PCGS. Hairlined, but flashy two-toned surfaces.
    Morgan Dollar PR 62 PCGS. Highly reflective beneath a delicate champagne-gold toning that appears primarily about the margins.
