They didn't make Mint sets or proof sets in 1965, just SMS sets. This is a put together aftermarket set, NOT a government packaged set. That is why I asked to see a picture of the whole set. With that much die wear I suspected a put together set.


So the mint only produced SMS in the hard plastic holders and any in soft plastic packs were aftermarket and "made-up"?

Im Canadian up here in North West Canada and I'm and avid set collector.I acquired a bulk lot of these USA sets and examined all the coins with this 1965 Dime standing out. I wanted to get more input on this particular [set / coin] to get the description correct. Not sure if there's much value here but I think this set in the future should go back to its mother land [USA]to be enjoyed and shared.

No, the 1966 and 67 SMS sets were in hard plastic holders, the 1965 set was in a pliofilm holder like the 1959-64 mint set or the 1955 - 1964 proof sets. But they included a hard plastic blue "token" in the set that is completely different than the disk in your set.

This is what a 1965 SMS set looked like.


This is your set

Thanks Condor1.
I should have taken the time to look online because I thought there were "soft" sets by the mint. I never thought of companies mimicking the mint sets as well as this one (except for the disc).

EDIT: BTW- That is the OP's set.
