This mint issued six coin proof set contains the rare Type 2 Susan B. Anthony Dollar! The sets offered here will often contain other Type 2 coins in addition to the dollar, but not all six coins as is required to be a "Type 2 set", which is very scarce!
It can be quite difficult to distinguish between the two types. It should first be learned that the overall clarity of the "S" is not the deciding factor, but rather the shape of the "S". The mint mark should have bulbous ends with well rounded center loops
Proof coins are coins that are struck just for collectors. The U.S. Mint uses specially prepared planchets (blanks) and dies. The coins are struck at least twice to give them optimum detail! Please note that more often than not the coins in these sets featuring Type 2 Dollars have cloudy surfaces.
