? about the 1970 proof set

Hi. I am going through some proof sets. I started with the 1970 proof sets that I have and came across one that does not have the S mint mark on the Nickel or the other coins. It only has the S on one of the pennies in the set. Are these the proof sets I should be looking for?

I really do not know which proof sets are worth the most. I have several from every year starting from 1963.

The item pictured is an "Uncirculated Set" (UC) better known as a :"Mint Set." The little plastic disc even says "Mint Set." They are not proofs.

EVERYBODY was collecting or gifting those proof/mint sets from about 1965 onward.  I think the Mint made so many that most (all ?) barely trade above face value today, right ?
