    SMS were 65 to 67. There were Uncirculated sets and Proof sets offered by the mint in 64. How to tell the cent of one from the other would probably be the strike. It should be more pronounced on the proof. The uncirculated sets were regular business strike coins. This was my opinion.

    Looks like a normal 1964 to me.

    Whenever someone finds a 1964 Lincoln in reasonably good shape they always think they have one of the 30-50 known SMS coins instead of one of the 2.5 BILLION regular strike Lincoln's.

    I feel weird asking, and I probably knew a while back... What's SMS?
