Re: best cherry pick of 2016

Yes, it is a Proof. Sold as a "Brown" box. I guess the US Mint made two types for sell and the Proofs were in the "Brown" box.

Re: Dissapointing mint bag

1) Not sure why you think the US Mint doesn't sell rolls of coins. Roll.JPG 2) Are all 6 of 100 coins with the crescent in the same place and shape? 3) The gold tinted coin, (middle photo?) appears well centered.
