We are gonna have to see some clear photos or the obverse and reverse in order to help.
Most likely it is a packaging mistake.
It is a Philly coin in the package with other D coins.
I was under the assumption that the Denver sets were assembled in Denver and the Philly sets were assembled in Philly or did they ship all the coins to Philly for assembly?
It would help if you took a photo of the Ike and all of the cello around it without all of the glare.
That is my thought, too! That is why I asked for the close-up which he seems unwilling to provide.
Unfortunately, packaging errors often REDUCE the value of the set. Most people buy mint sets to get 1 of every coin made for that year. Your set has 2 P mint Ikes and no D mint Ike. If I was looking to buy a 76 mint set, I would skip yours.
they didn't have Denver Ikes available, and just put Philly Ikes in some of them. It's not really a big deal. I bet you could go online (Ebay, w/e) buy some 1976 Denver mint sets and you might get a Philly coin in there.
I'm a little slow on the uptake at times so you're saying all of these sets are put together at a central location?
Nope,the coin is fine, the packaging is in error. Packaging errors usually command just a very small premium, like a dollar or two just as a novelty.
Yes, they are not packaged at the individual mints. It used to be the sets were assembled at the San Francisco Mint but I don't know if that is still the case or if they are assembled by an outside contractor.
