The 1964 Proof Set was minted in Philadelphia and was the last year that the Roosevelt Dime, Washington Quarter, and Kennedy Half Dollar were 90% silver. In 1965, the Mint moved to the “clad” materials – a core of copper and a shell of nickel.
The value of this set is that it is a fully intact set as the Treasury Department shipped them back in 1964. However, if you broke down the value of these coins in average proof state, the total value is well over $40.
With this particular deal, the coins will come to you with free shipping if you are an Amazon Prime customer which means you will get it by mid-week in most of the United States. As always, there is a 30-day satisfaction guarantee on the purchase. If you aren’t completely satisfied with the set when you receive it, you can return it for a full refund.
