Equalizing the NGC's #1 PROOF Registry Set ... 1883 CAMEO's

What a fabulous proof type example!  The 1883 N/C is one of my all-time favorite proof coins, period.

As some of you know, I assembled a complete circulation strike set of V-nickels some time ago, and still have it - it's maybe my favorite collection that I've finished.  The lone exception I picked out was: the 1883 N/C nickel.  Mine is ex-NGC PR-65 CAM!  I did crack it out and placed it in my Dansco where it's been happy ever since, going on 20 years.

Yes!!  I need to dig the set out and show you all, but some of the coins are looking pretty amazing.  (To be fair, some already had toning in-progress.)
