Interesting Facts About U.S. Proof and Mint Sets:
-- Each U.S. Proof set includes double-struck, mirror-finish specimens of all U.S. coin denominations issued for that date.
-- The first U.S. proof sets emerged in 1936. Sold directly to collectors at premium prices, they did not quickly catch on during the Depression years and their early mintages were so low that today they sell in four figures. Such sets were suspended in 1942 during World War II and not renewed throughout the postwar 1940's.
-- From 1965 to 1967 the U.S. Mint replaced proof sets with a higher-quality form of mint sets.
-- U.S. Mint sets contain Uncirculated specimens of each year's coins for every denomination issued from every mint.
-- Substantially fewer complete sets are available today than their original mintages suggest because they are often broken up to obtain individual coins.
