1992 UNITED STATES MINT SILVER PROOF SET W/COA & BOX (5) COINS TOTAL . THIS BEAUTIFUL 90% SILVER (3) COINS ROOSEVELT DIME, WASHINGTON QUARTER & KENNEDY HALF DOLLAR WITH A COPPER PLATED LINCOLN CENT AND CUPRO-NICKEL JEFFERSON NICKEL. EACH COIN BEARS THE "S" MINT MARK OF THE SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA US MINT.
PROOF COINS, REFERRED TO AS "MASTER COINS" IN THE EARLY DAYS OF THE MINT, WERE ORIGINALLY PRODUCED TO "PROVE THE CORRECTNESS OF THE DIES." THESE FIRST PIECES, STRUCK WITH EXTRA CARE AND BEARING A HIGH POLISH WERE RESERVED FOR THE MINT'S CABINET OF COINS COLLECTION AND SOMETIMES USED FOR SPECIAL PRESENTATIONS. THEY WERE FIRST OFFERED FOR SALE TO THE PUBLIC AROUND 1859.
THESE COINS ARE PRODUCED FROM CAREFULLY SELECTED PLANCHETS, OR COIN BLANKS, THAT HAVE BEEN BURNISHED TO A HIGH LUSTER. THE POLISHED BLANKS WHICH ARE ON CAREFULLY HANDLED TO MINIMIZE SCRATCHES AND ABRASIONS, ARE STRUCK ON SPECIALLY ADAPTED COINING PRESSES. EACH COIN IS STRUCK AT LEAST TWICE TO BRING FOR THE MOST MINUTE DETAIL WITH REMARKABLE CLARITY.
I TAKE EXTREME PRIDE IN PACKAGING EACH COIN I SELL AND WANT ENSURE THAT WHEN THE COIN LEAVES ME IT ARRIVES EXACTLY IN THE SAME CONDITION. I PROVIDE QUICK SHIPPING AND LEAVE POSITIVE FEEDBACK FOR MY BUYERS. I COMBINE SHIPPING WITH MULTIPLE PURCHASES.
