1979 Proof Set Type 1 & Type 2

1979-S Type 1 & Type 2 Proof Sets (12 coins)

Here’s an interesting and unusual addition to any collection – a pair of 1979-S Proof Sets!

  • You’ll enjoy the Type I filled "S" Susan B. Anthony dollar and its scarce replacement, the clear "S" Type II
  • Not only was 1979 the first year of issue for the short-lived Anthony dollar, it was also the year an unexpected collector bonus was created
  • Every year the U.S. Mint painstakingly produces quality coins for inclusion in Proof Sets
  • When the old "S" mint mark punch broke in mid-summer 1979, a new one was made
  • The replacement punch created the scarcer Type II (or Clear "S") varieties
  • Because the change happened so late in the year, only about 15-20% of 1979 Proof Sets include the coveted Clear "S" coins
  • Today, the Clear “S” coin is hard to come by!
