    This was given to me as a Christmas gift from Santa in 1972. These where struck at my local (Ottawa Mint) in 71 to Commerate the 2500th Anniversary of founding of Persia by Cyrus the Great. These are dealers photos. My coins are still in protective plastic trays/ thus are perfect/ not toned/ oxidized/ would be PROOF 70 if graded. Thank God I had enough common sense back when I was a teenager not to have removed them from trays. Set sold for $261.00 Canadian back then!

    Hmm! I seem to be lacking in 1971 coinage. This thread is quite an eye opener, I love it.

    1970 Great Britain Proof set - last of the pre decimal coinage. Hundreds of years of the shilling denomination and this is the last year. These sets were actually put together in 1971. DSCN3423~2.JPG DSCN3424~2.JPG
