Most collectors are unaware that the U.S. Mint changed the mint mark that had been used for four years on Proof Lincoln cents minted in San Francisco mid-way through the year. This effectively created two different varieties of 1974-S proof cents, both of which are included in this two-coin set.

It should be stated that the images for this item show an item from this product code as an example of the condition of the coins you will receive when ordering this product, and are not the exact coins you will receive.

As a seller I believe in full disclosure by way of a detailed description and large, clear photographs when warranted, but many less expensive and bulk items make more sense to carry with 'sample' photographs rather than photographing each individual lot sold. For that reason, if the description above specifies that a stock image is used, be aware that the items you will receive are in like kind to the images provided, but WILL NOT be the exact same items.
