1974 United States Mint Set
1974-PDS Mint Set
In 1974, collectors were treated once again to Mint Sets with two Eisenhower Dollars. Sales remained high, falling just shy of the 2 million mark.
About the sets: The coins in the 1974-PDS Mint Sets were Uncirculated pieces pulled from regular production runs, thus the quality of the individual coins varies widely from set to set, and even within a set.
The 1974-PDS Mint Set contained thirteen coins, including the following:
|1974-PDS Mint Set||Cent||Nickel||Dime||Quarter||Half Dollar||One Dollar (Copper-Nickel Clad)|
Mintage: 1,975,981 sets
A small number of 1974-D Eisenhower Dollar have been found struck on 40% Silver Clad planchets. Although most (if not all) of these were discovered outside of U.S. Mint Sets, some Mint Sets might contain them! Some sets may also contain a rare and popular 1974-D Doubled Die Obverse Half Dollar that shows strong doubling on IN GOD WE TRUST and the date.
Original packaging: The coins in the 1974-PDS Mint Set were sealed in two pliofilm flat packs: the D-Mint coins were placed together in one of the packs, and the P- and S-Mint coins were placed together in another. The pack containing the D-Mint coins was edged in red; the pack containing the P- and S-Mint coins was edged in blue. The two pliofilm packs and two pieces of thin cardboard (for protection) were sealed in an officially inscribed, white mailing envelope.
