Please Read Before Posting A Topic

In the title please put date, denomination and type of coin design and a brief on what you are asking about.
In example: "1995 Lincoln Cent Missing 5" or "2010 Roosevelt Dime With a Line inside the rim".

All of this helps discern the different topics from each other and is much less confusing to members who want to help.
Topic titles like "how did this happen" or "help" often get ignored and lost in the confusion.

Also if you're having trouble posting an image then here's our guide for that. How To Post Images

If I am not mistaken they did not produce any 1965 Proof sets or proof coins. In 1965 they had the special mint sets (SMS) no mint marks (made in Philadelphia). Sorry no holly grail, just a plain ole 1965 SMS cent. You really need to do some research on the SMS sets (1965,1966, and 1967)

As I've stated to many times in this forum, ONLY post YOUR coin that you have a question about. I don't want to see examples or comparison images of other coins. Show us your coin that you have a question about. Please

I edited your post, just reply with ONLY your coin.

Don't worry, take your time to set up your thread. Don't forget to adjust lighting, crop and re-size if need be . I recommend a program called PhotoScape .
