About the sets: The coins in the 1960 Mint Sets were Uncirculated pieces pulled from regular production runs, thus the quality of the individual coins varies wildly from set to set, and even within a set.
The 1960 Mint Set contained ten coins, including the following:
|1960 Mint Set||Cent||Nickel||Dime||Quarter||Half Dollar|
Mintage: 260,485 sets
Original packaging: Pliofilm packaging, similar to Proof Sets.

The two pliofilm packs were inserted, along with a card, into a mailing envelope for shipment to customers.
