NICE ORIGINAL 1901 PROOF SET

This fresh to the market set is clearly original as indicated by the evenly matched coloration on the silver coins. It was stored for many years in a hard plastic holder, thus the coins did not tone extensively. A maximum of 813 sets were produced. The six coins in the set are as follows:

1¢ PR65RB CAC Around 95% of the original red shows and were it not for a few specks on the obverse this gorgeous coin would likely grade a point or two higher.

PCGS Pop: 73/47; NGC Pop: 63/39; CAC Pop: 10/14; PCGS Price Guide: 625

 

5¢ PR67 Holy Moly…what a coin! Very reflective with unmarked, dazzling surfaces. I can’t begin to imagine why this coin didn’t sticker at CAC as it is amazing!

PCGS Pop: 32/1; NGC Pop: 32/5; PCGS Price Guide: 1800

 

10¢ PR67 CAC Mostly white with some russet and crimson color at the edges. An exceptional and essentially “as made” coin.

PCGS Pop: 5/0; NGC Pop: 15/2; CAC Pop: 4/1; PCGS Price Guide: 4450

 

25¢ PR64CAM CAC A bit of pastel toning can be seen, especially on the obverse. This coin looks like a PR66CAM but has some ultra-fine slidemarks on the face.

PCGS Pop: 12/32; NGC Pop: 4/38; CAC Pop: 2/21; PCGS Price Guide: 1500

 

50¢ PR64+ The obverse grades a full PR66; some light hairlines on the upper reverse are hard to see without strong magnification.

PCGS Pop: 67/66; NGC Pop: 67/114; PCGS Price Guide: 2000

 

S$1 PR65 This is always a popular issue due to the extreme rarity of Gem business strikes. This Gem is fully white with a clean cheek and a lovely overall appearance.

PCGS Pop: 11/13; NGC Pop: 8/10; PCGS Price Guide: 8250

In all, this original matched set contains six coins which are in consecutively numbered PCGS holders. I believe that sets like this are one of the best values in all of American numismatics and I would be surprised if more than two dozen non-assembled 1901 Proof sets still exist.
