1965 SMS sets

#1 Unread post by DSCoins » Mon Jul 15, 2019 9:55 pm

I have a slight dilemma on my hands, and I also hope this is the right forum to place it in. Now here is the problem. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE states that the mint only issued 1965, 1966 and 1967 sets in the single row in (for lose of different word) plastic holder. I hope I remember that correctly? Any way while getting them all down stairs and getting them organized, I noticed a white envelope which read on the top left of envelope, "TREASURY DEPARTMENT United, States Assay Office, Numismatic Service, 350 Duboce Avenue, San Francisco Calif. 94102. Official Business". Than at the lower left "1965 - S. S. Inside is the normal celo wrap that you would find on the 1970,1979 or the 1985. It has the Kennedy Half, Quarter. dime, nickel and penny, of course they have no mint mark plus a token which states Special Mint Set.

I will attempt to take a photo of it all and try to get them onto the computer, and here.

Thanks
