I saw mentioned that after striking a few proof sets for Liberia in the mid-70s with the last being 1979 by recall that they (the FM) got a contract and then struck some currency coins for circulation in Liberia in 1983-1984. Googling seemed to confirm this being the case but nowhere could I find specimens. In the 1984 year they supposedly struck 2 million 1 cent coins, 1 mill. 5 cent coins and 500k 10 cent coins for Liberia, and what was more is that they were struck in supposedly matte or at least satin finish. And then I remembered the "Coins of All Nations" in several issues by the FM. Except for some sets that included a few old coins possibly leftover FM coins from earlier years - these are individual national sets often issued with a stamp and usually were made up of coins struck by the Royal Mint, Aussie Mint, Russian mint, etc. as the FM was winding down operations Well supposedly some of the 1984 FM coins were included in these Liberia sets in the 1c through 10c denominations (I think the larger coins thru 1 Dollar struck by the Philly mint) - this in a period where the FM had [I thought] shut down currency coins. I could then see on ebay that there were sets that had these coins but the 10c were mainly Philly issued coins that unlike most coins in these sets had been knocked around with handling. A few had 10c coins from 1984 but nowhere could I see on coins of these sets the FM monogram (Jamaica is another exception in that a few sets had quality uncirculated coin in the 20c 25c, and 50c size). So I ordered a set from ebay and looked at the coins carefully; here pictured are the 1c and 5c and see if you can spot the FM monogram: Then the more obvious 10c: Sorry for the long-winded post! But it ended up that 7 years after the last matte coins that I know of being struck, the FM got a fairly large contract and struck coins for Liberia for circulation in the matte finish and then included them is sets that really no longer had FM coins with three of them represented. It is still a mystery as to if they actually circulated or were struck and only released in these sets. I have not seen any with 1983 coins of the same denominations. One last thing: I had assumed that in Krause when the (M) or matte designation is used post-1977 for uncirculated or currency coins that these were in fact (U) or prooflike coins with many examples to show. Now here is the evidence that they did strike mattes well after the expected 1977 termination of this type of strike.
