    That set looks gorgeous! It's all original. Remember when you could still find these sets with relative ease and in some quantity? I would guess the late 1990s or very early 2000s was the last time that would happen.

    Those two dimes are very similar to my 1958 P coins. Great pickup!

    Those are really nice sets. There are no coin shows around here, but we do get gun shows which usually have several tables with coins. I have yet to see any of the double mint sets. Usually just the single sets. I always check for the 1964 sets for the AH Kennedy. Cheers, RickO

    I've been looking at these since @FlyingAl posted his on my thread about toning/skin. Very beautiful coins!

    Very original. I have a small stash of dbl mint sets put away. Nice ones are hard to find these days.

    Very nice set and all original. So many I see today are put together sets with bright white silver and red copper cents, being passed off as original to fool unsuspecting customers. Potential buyers should do their homework and learn that these coins housed in cardboard holders for 65+ years, will be toned. Just my 2 cents worth.
