I went down to a Tallahassee coin show, bought a box of junk, and was surprised to find THIS inside

Let me know what you think.

    Love the coins! Great toning! And the 60 year old labels from a label maker brings back memories.

    Definitely a one or two grade bump up in grading if you decide to send them in.

    Nice pair - really like the tarnish (aka toning).

    The typo in the second label really sells it ;)
    Super nice coins!

    It’s the same typo in the top one, only lower case :wink:

    Great job on the photography! How you captured all the toning for every coin without any glare. Such skill doesn't just happen by chance. The reverse side?

    Oh no - I cannot take any credit for particularly good photography skills. I had to photoshop individual photos onto the full shot.

    Toning on the reverses is highly comparable - all are two-sided toners.

    I forgot to say that I don't believe these to be SMS coins, of course. Otherwise, the set would be worth a fortune!

    Ah, that thought did cross my mind, how you mastered the task.
    The Denver coins wouldn't be SMS.
    Any steps on those Jeffs? Reason for my jest!

    A pouch of silver wartime nickels also had a fake 1943 "no mintark" :D . It is not a Henning counterfeit, though.

    A great looking set. I love looking at aftermarket holders with 1964 year sets, as occasionally I find stuff like what you show right there.

    Someone messed up apparently if they sold the box without valuing this coin.

    Check to see if they are the rare 1964 SMS sets. ;)

    Very nice. I like the Philly set a bit better. What are your plans for these sets?
