So you are saying they minted all those extra coins (at high speed) when they didn't HAVE to? Geesh...


Well they didn't need to but no one wanted to wait until it was too late if they had to. Laws are written ambiguously just so lawyers can stay busy. In this case they kept the mint busy unnecessarily. Of the some 11,000,000 extra sets produced sales at profit were probably fewer than 100,000.

There are five versions not counting varieties and errors.

'76 (P) clad
'76-D clad
'76-S 40% ag
'76-S 40% ag (from high speed press)
'76-S 40% ag PRF

The clads were made for circulation and the ag was made for collectors and few circulated.


Why no mention of the 76-S clad proof? That would be the 5th version and the high speed press silver would be a variety IMHO.

D'oh.

I felt like I was forgetting something.

There was a '76 no-S PR made in Philly as well, I believe, but none survive.
