Each set include five coins that were in circulation in 1962: the Lincoln Cent, Jefferson Nickel, Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter and the Franklin Half Dollar.
Some of the coins from the Philadelphia Mint are found in gem condition with full bell lines.
The packaging for the 1962 Mint Set is two cellophane packets placed with a piece of protective cardboard within an envelope. The envelope is addressed with the Treasury Department and notated with "1962-U.C."
PLEASE NOTE: This U.S. Mint product was not purchased by us directly from the Mint but from collectors like you and other dealers. We make every effort to make sure the packaging is acceptable and that the coins are problem free. You may, however, receive coins that have toning or haze. This occurs naturally over time and is common to see. There may be some imperfections in packaging due to the sets leaving one collection to go into another. Please keep this in mind when examining your sets.
