    Gem to Superb Quality 1900 Proof Set

    1900 Proof Set. An exceptional proof set from this always-popular turn-of-the-century date. Included are:
    Indian Cent PR 65 Red NGC. Bright orange-red color on the obverse, the reverse is a bit more subdued with some speckled olive overtones.
    Liberty Nickel PR 66 NGC. Well mirrored with lovely pastel rose and ice-blue color on the obverse, the reverse is mostly brilliant with a hint of peripheral citrine patina. A flashy nickel whose only notable flaw lies in a vertical contact mark near the top of the right serif of the V in the denomination.
    Barber Dime PR 67 NGC Intensely mirrored fields with just a hint of color, the surfaces are pristine throughout and there is just the faintest contrast between the fields and devices.
    Barber Quarter PR 66 NGC. Deeply mirrored and very flashy, the obverse is brilliant and the reverse shows just the vaguest hint of light patina in the fields.
    Barber Half-Dollar PR 67 NGC. An incredibly beautiful proof half that shows much original brilliance with the left half of each side toned in rich shades of violet, brown, and blue. A translucent, shimmering, near-perfect coin.
    Morgan Dollar PR 66 NGC. Brightly mirrored with moderate contrast on each side, the surfaces show a light speckling of original multicolored iridescence. A proof Morgan dollar preserved at the pinnacle of perfection, and yet typical of the extraordinarily high quality seen throughout this set.
