I have been researching the 1971 Nickel with no S. From my understanding it is valuable if it comes in a proof set from San fransisco. My grandmother gave me these years ago, the envelope they came in is from San Fransisco, but It is not in a hard case. The other coins have the S mark, the envelope states it’s 1971 U.C. So can anybody tell me exactly what it s? Bc I assume the UC means Uncirculated so it’s not a proof set? I appreciate the clarification.

Yep, it's an Uncirculated Set, not a Proof Set.
Hence it would not contain an "S" Mint nickel.

The "missing S" variety would ONLY be in a Proof Set.

You have a "Mint set" not a "proof" set. The no MM is a Philly issue. If you had a coin with no MM of S in a plastic Proof, then it would be worth something.

Mint set because of the blue stripe on the cello? NO -Because proof sets were in plastic cases in 71. And the SanFran mint quit producing the business strike nickel with their MM in 70 ( minted with the S from 68-70)

Oh, by the way – the book I gave you for Christmas has to be returned to the library next week.

Ok thank you all for the info. So the other coins in the set would have been produced in San fransisco, since they have the -S MM? The nickel would have been from Philadelphia then, if I am understanding the MM?

In that set, there should be only one "S" coin, the cent. All the others in that sleeve are from Philadelphia. (There may be another sleeve from Denver.) The address on the envelope just indicates the assembly point of the process.

Yeah, I need clarification. Only one of the cents should have an S mintmark. It should be a Philly mint set (blue edges). The Denver set has red edges.
