Until 1955, U.S. Mint proof sets were packaged in small cardboard boxes, with each coin contained in a small cellophane sleeve. These sets are tough to find today, especially in their original packaging.
- Made by the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia.
- Mintage of 128,200.
- Early proof sets like this are packaged with each coin individually in protective cellophane inside a cardboard box.
- Because the cellophane originally housing these coins typically degraded and became brittle over time, any sets where the sleeves have been compromised will have the affected coins placed in a plastic flip to protect their delicate brilliant proof surfaces.
- Each set contains:
- Lincoln wheat cent
- Jefferson nickel
- Roosevelt dime
- Washington quarter
- Franklin half dollar
