    1893 Six-Piece Proof Set

    1893 Proof Set. With the unhappy exception of the Morgan dollar, this is among the prettiest sets offered thus far. The individual breakdown is as follows:
    Indian Cent PR 65 Red PCGS. Lovely reddish-golden surfaces with an absence of carbon or hairlining.
    Liberty Nickel PR 64 PCGS. Mostly brilliant and perhaps of gem quality, save for some mint-caused roughness at the back of Liberty's neck.
    Barber Dime PR 65 PCGS. Richly toned in a patchwork of bluish-green, orange, and rose iridescence, lightening only at the center of the reverse.
    Barber Quarter PR 65 PCGS. A top flight, original cameo with splashes of reddish-brown and blue toning at opposite sides of the obverse and just a hint of russet at the reverse margin.
    Barber Half-Dollar PR 64 PCGS. Certainly not lacking in eye appeal, this near-gem example shares the two-toned qualities and coloration of the quarter, but is downgraded by a couple of minor surface blemishes.
    Morgan Dollar PR 60 PCGS. Quite flashy for the assigned grade, exhibiting full cameo contrast and attractive peripheral toning. There are, however, numerous hairlines teamed with facial slidemarks on the obverse.
