Hello again Coin Community,
Wanted to get your input on this 5 coin set I came across. It's sealed in a plastic holder but does not have a label on what kind of set it is. All coins have a satin finish texture, could this be the rare 1964 SMS set or is this a custom set. Thanks again in advance.

Does the holder say something like Whitman or Capital on it?

From what I have read, the fields of the 1964 SMS's are very clean. Could you get a better pic of the reverse of the nickel. It could just be the holder but there appear to be many die abrasions in the fields.

E&V I think the ones he has at the top of his post are about the closest he can get. I don't know anything about figuring this type of stuff out.

No you can see on the fields die cleaning. The SMS coin were fresh never used dies. So they look even better than the BU coins you have there.




Note how clear the fields are:

The line looks incuse, not raised. The die is also showing age, so it's not a SMS coin.
