If anyone is ever looking for documented evidence on these cases, here is a page from the 1968 Mint Masters Report describing them.

The 1969 report, says the 1968 cased dollars never sold well, so they used the remaining 1908-1968 case for 1969. This explains SPP's picture of a 1969 coin in a case meant for 1968. I should have taken a picture of this page from 1969 report.

Unfortunately it does not list any details of the strike.

I bought a case from eBay recently... I figured I had the 1968 specimen dollar, so I might as well have the proper case of issue.

Awesome, yours looks in great shape. They don't seem to come along very often. $50 seems to be going price. Now I need to find the specimen coin :-)

Is it normal for coins in a case like that to still get all those dings on the cheek and neck of the queen? I'm new so I still struggle trying to grade uncirculated
