1960 Proof Set, 5-Coin. Not only was its 1,691,602 million mintage the lowest for U.S. proof sets in the 1960's, no regular set mintage since has been so small. And a good number of 1960 proof sets were broken up by dealers to obtain sought-after individual Franklin silver half dollar proofs, which were issued only as part of complete 5-coin proof sets. Today higher-mintage recent U.S. proof sets sell for considerably more. Crisp double-struck engravings on dazzling mirror-finish coin blanks.
1960 Mint Set, 10-Coin. Merely 260,485 were issued, the second-lowest U.S. mint set output over the past 49 years (only the 1961 mint set had a smaller production in that span). Later mintages in the series were up to 20 times higher. The set includes pristine Brilliant Uncirculated specimens of every U.S. coin for the date: both Philadelphia (no mintmark) and Denver ("D" mintmark) issues of the cent, nickel, silver dime, silver quarter and silver half dollar. Mint medals for each packet.
