    Description

    Six-Piece 1942 Proof Set NGC. Contains the following six pieces, all housed in a custom NGC holder:

    1942 Cent PR64 Red. Strong copper-orange color on the obverse with paler tan elements prominent on the reverse. Exactingly detailed with only a few tiny flyspecks and other flaws present in the fields.

    1942 Five Cent Nickel PR66. Light blue and gold tints have settled over each side of this otherwise pearl-gray piece, a strongly struck Premium Gem with potent mirrors and faint frost on the portrait.

    1942-P Five Cent Silver PR66. Faint yellow toning visits parts of the otherwise silver-white obverse and is deeper and more overt on the reverse. Exactingly struck and pleasingly preserved.

    1942 Dime PR65. Light silver-gray color overall with suggestions of crimson and olive near the rims, most prominently at the area of E PLURIBUS UNUM and DIME. Powerful mirrors.

    1942 Quarter PR66. Pale silver-gray patina overall with a touch of gold at the margins. Washington's portrait is well-defined and slightly frosted.

    1942 Half PR65. A faint skiff of cloud-gray toning drapes the strongly reflective fields, while the sharply struck devices show little of that patina.
    Ex: The Boca Collection, Part One (Heritage, 1/2010), lot 2068.
