U.S. Mint Sets filled with pocket change and coins from the garden?!
Do I lol or cry?
I only have a few of these vintage mint sets, they are ok but nothing spectacular.
I've acquired some very nice individual coins from mint sets over the years but honestly haven't handled many of the original mint sets.
So I got an amazing deal on these 3 sets at less than $5 each! Ok, well I thought it was a deal lol!
There is some of that nice golden/pink toning but the coins mostly seem to have been taken from the registers in the Mint's cafeterias .
No full steps, waxy alien like toning, green blue red and grey splotches, and a dirty SBA that was clearly picked up off the street lol!
Let's start with the first coin I noticed when I opened the sets...
That appears to be soil, yes, like actual dirt in there lol.
Damage or rim burr near the date on this one?
Coins are Neato!
