Why do you think this coin would be from a SMS ?
SMS coins will look similar to a proof coin but without a cameo appearance and strike characteristics .

In Memory of Butch L.

No The SMS 1964 do not look like a proof. 1964 is no proof like, at list till now, I never see one. You are right from the point of view of strike: two times, so the design is very well see. 1964 SMA is dull on look and not proof like.

1965, 1966, 1967 SMS has some proof like which TPG say CAM but in reality are not really CAM.

Hope help.

I can write here a lot for this. I understand you. First: On the O the hairs tail (I say like this) is complete different. the year digits are different, and etc.

The R first the EPU, then the leaves, then the feathers and go on. (head of the eagle, arrows tips, wings feathers and the letters)

Hope help you and the others.

A new image of the weakness/strength of the tail feathers on the various reverses on the 1964 quarters:

The SMS 1964 quarter is a type 'A', with the weak tail feathers. The Type 'B' proof reverses are strong tail feathers. The type 'C' (1964-D example was not as strong as what I imaged) The Tail feathers are strongest on the type 'B'. Learn something new every day.

Not even close !
This subject has been beaten
more often than a Persian Rug .
Unless you have connections to
Either the Lester Merkins or Eva Adams
Estate or bought it out of a high powered auction
You are NEVER connecting on a 1964 SMS coin .
There are none in the wild or available any other way .
This subject of 1964 SMS coins is a candidate for banning
on the Forum . Right up there with the 1936 Canadian Dot
Cent and Dime .
