    Description

    1893 1C Cent PR 65 Red and Brown NGC. The crimson-red luster dominates both sides and yields to golden overtones over the right obverse. Despite this coloration scheme, both sides of this sparkling gem evidence their reflective fields when one rotates the holder beneath a suitable light source.

    1893 Nickel PR 67 NGC. Essentially brilliant save for isolated golden-blue accents, the deep, watery fields amply support the moderately frosted devices. Richly delineated and carefully preserved, it is little wonder that this effulgent specimen is among the finest certified survivors of the issue. NGC and PCGS combined report only 6 examples in PR 67 with none finer (9/99).

    1893 Dime PR 68 NGC. Even lilac-copper patina envelops the reverse, although this color scheme is confined to the right periphery on the obverse. As one might expect, the proof qualities of the underlying surfaces are only readily visible on the obverse, although this hardly detracts from the technical and aesthetic beauty of this Barber dime. Population: 4 in 68, none finer (9/99).

    1893 Quarter PR 68 NGC. Deeply toned in antique-copper shades on the reverse, the obverse displays only pale iridescence. Richly impressed and devoid of even the most trivial contact mark, it is difficult for us to imagine a more impressive representative of this 1890s proof delivery.

    1893 Half PR 68 NGC. Smoky-gray, golden-brown, crimson-russet, and electric-blue hues lie swirled together over both sides in true target fashion. While the balance of the features display razor sharp definition, characteristic incompleteness of strike is noted on the eagle's neck and right (facing) shoulder feathers. Nevertheless, with pristine surfaces and deep mirrors, it is little wonder that this example dominates the PR 68 grade tier as the finest certified survivor of the issue (9/99).

    1893 Dollar PR 67 NGC. Despite trivial striking softness over the central obverse, this is simply a stunning proof Morgan. Both sides are possessed of smooth, mark-free surfaces that are temptingly close to numismatic perfection. Deeply mirrored beneath mottled copper-russet, pink, and blue overtones, the conditionally challenging status of the its corresponding business strike delivery only enhances the desirability of this superb gem.
    From the Watchung Hills Collection.
