Proof Sets

2 posts in this topic

I was looking at the Registry for Proof Sets. There are several in his situation but I noticed the following.


Take the 1971 S for instance.If you look on the "Score" listing and look at $1 Silver the scores are the same but you have two categories.


1. $1 Silver

2 $1 Silver sealed Government mint set.


Why the different designations for the same coin? Does this mean that one was sent in as a sealed set and one as a separate coin?If this is the case then why is the $1.00 Silver the only coin in the year with the two different designations?

They are indeed the same coin; however NGC offers a choice of putting the coin in an NGC holder or leaving it in the Original Government Holder and putting a band around it like a GSA Dollar. The two are distinguished on our population reports and can both be entered into the same slot on the registry.
