    1888 Proof Set, NGC Certified

    1888 Proof Set NGC Certified. Included are:
    Cent PR 66 Red and Brown. Good reflectivity for a proof copper coin with deeper color on the reverse.
    Three Cent Nickel PR 66. Light rose colored patina with good reflectivity in the fields.
    Nickel PR 66. Hazy golden-rose patina with a few planchet laminations on the reverse.
    Dime PR 67. Violet and blue toning on the obverse with quite different muted purple color on the reverse and bright lemon-yellow accents at the margin.
    Quarter PR 67. A highly reflective proof finish shimmers across each side with a barely toned obverse. The reverse, however, is heavily toned.
    Half PR 67. Lilac and golden-rose patina characterize the obverse of this exquisite gem, while the reverse has a shocking brilliant center surrounded by muted shades of color at the perimeter.
    Dollar PR 67. Deeply reflective fields are covered with rich, multicolored toning that encompass nearly every color of the spectrum.
