This is a Lithographic Plate (left) used to print 1970 Proof Set Boxes and an unused proof set box (right).
Second photo is the purchase order for the 3 million proof set boxes ordered by the San Francisco Mint.

    Incomplete planchets wanted, especially Lincoln Cents & type coins.

    I still have the original packaging that it was mailed to me in, otherwise I wouldn't know. I got it from Excelsior Gallery in Sacramento, CA. in 1984. Wow!! I've had it almost 40 years.

    I also have a printing plate for the Redbook. I forget right off what year Redbook it was for.
