In 1964, Lyndon Johnson signed the Civil Rights Act, poverty and war were highlighted on the daily news and America grieved the loss of John F. Kennedy. Pop culture gave us the Beatles, Muhammad Ali and Bob Dylan. The year also made numismatic history as the first Kennedy half dollar was released it also proved to be the last year circulating coinage contained 90% silver issues. The 1964 proof set was also the final set produced in Philadelphia; no proof sets were issued until production ramped back up in San Francisco in 1968. The trio of coins offered here were originally found in those historic 1964 proof sets. Included are a Lincoln cent, Jefferson nickel and 90% silver Roosevelt dime.

First, I never give anybody 5 stars. Now, these coins arrived in typical fashion Almost perfect. ICC stuff usually comes in great shape well protected and timely. This time two of the three Proof nickles had a weird gold colored tinge to them. NOT the typical proof shinny, etc. So I called them so followed their instructions and sent the two back to them. I was beginning to get worried as I called them and sent the two back them on 7 Nov 2020 and as of 1 Dec still no word. But, on 9 Dec 2020 the beautiful proof nickles arrived making everything right !! Good job to ICC Inc !!
*MERCHANT RESPONSE* Thank you so much for your patience on the return. Covid has affected the entire Numismatic industry and therefore many of our processes as well.
I never give five stars so don't get bent about it. I purchased three sets. Two of the three nickles had a strange holdish coloration, not shiney like a PROOF is supposed to look. Sent them back for replacements but haven't gotten anything back yet. The other coins were beautiful as to be expected.
Very nice 1964 coin set, uncirculated proof set.
Very happy with coins and service..Thank You.
very pleased with the purchase.
