    Description

    1892 1C Cent PR 65 Red NGC. Milky-orange luster characterizes this pristine gem. The deeply mirrored fields are, however, only visible at select light angles. As one would expect of a proof, the strike is razor sharp and draws forth every last detail.

    1892 Nickel PR 67 NGC. The stunning proof qualities of this superb gem nickel radiate forcefully through the milky-gray patina that dominates the reverse. While the obverse displays similar coloration about the portrait, the balance of the face is essentially brilliant. As befits the grade, both sides are devoid of distractions. NGC reports only 3 examples in PR 67 with a lone PR 68 specimen finer. PCGS, on the other hand, has not graded a single example above the PR 66 grade tier (9/99).

    1892 Dime PR 67 NGC. The hazy lavender-gray toning that envelops this exquisite piece speaks volumes for its originality. Richly defined and deeply mirrored, the surfaces are indicative of the numismatic beauty that resides at the superb gem grade tier. Population: 10 in 67, none finer (9/99).

    1892 Quarter PR 66 NGC. The obverse of this specimen displays deep lavender-gray patina that lightens substantially over the lower portrait and field. Although the reverse is also toned, we note that the toning is markedly thinner throughout. Devoid of both striking anomalies and post-production distractions, the placid faces are possessed of memorable eye appeal.

    1892 Half PR 67 NGC. Deep antique-copper patina overlays both sides and evidences effulgent electric-blue and pink undertones throughout. A circle of near-brilliance is noted, however, over both portraits. The razor sharp definition that typifies proof coinage has not been lost on this technically superior example.

    1892 Dollar PR 67 NGC. While the balance of the faces are possessed of deep crimson-russet iridescence, swirls of dusky-tan patina intrude over both sides. Powerfully impressed save for the hair atop Liberty's ear, this specimen would form the centerpiece of any advanced collection of proof coinage. Population: 13 in 67, only 4 finer (9/99).
    From the Watchung Hills Collection.
