1974-S Proof Coin Set


Mintage: 2,612,568 sets

Original Issue Price: $7.00


The packaging of the 1974-S Proof Coin Sets is identical to that of the 1973 sets.  Sales dropped off just a little bit more than the 1973-S Proof Coin Sets, indicating both a repudiation of the increased cost of the sets and the general state of the economy following the 1973 oil embargo.

Look for spot-, dust- and film-free coins and try for sets that have as many frosted "cameos" as possible.  The red dust is a potential, spot-causing problem, especially in areas with high humidity, so store your sets carefully.  Be sure the pins that hold the hinged flap are unbroken.
