I bought this yesterday due to an extensivly toned nickel and a beautiful blast white half dollar. I can't capture the toning on the nickel. It is a blue purple and yellow bullseye toning with some yellow. I got the set for $8.
The one coin I do not particularly like in this set is the quarter with some frost toning I do not find attractive.

Why are the mint mark on the half so different from the other coins for example the dime?
An rpm?

Hmm not sure about the mm being re-punched. Here is a link to the two known RPMs on varietyvista:

Well it can't technically be a broken post on a S mm, but it *might* be minor chips around the mintmark. Any chance on a better close-up pic of just that are?

Yes there is a chance of that, Spence.

You bought the set because you liked it. $8 is a reasonable price in my mind.

It looks to be in good shape and $8 is not bad. I would pay that for another 1969 (my birth year) just to have it. I have had two. The original (I got when was a kid) was broke apart to fill Dansco holes. The one I have (intact) was a more recent birthday present from the wife's aunt.

Absolutely for $8 dollars. We share similar interests in two ways. Blue/violet toned nickels and old Fords. The Galaxie station wagon with a 390

Don't know if I can link to it here so I won't but Silvertowne has the 68 proof set for $9.20 if you want to get another. Shipping is another $5.95. If you buy $99 worth of stuff shipping is free.

And no, I do not work for them or am I being paid for this "advertisement". Just passing along a little information I stumbled upon.

Edited to change the year to 68

At $8, if you love one and digg another, you did alright. It was just $8. Just give enough appreciation to the one you love and your soul will be OK.
