    Small date cents in 1960 proof sets are "fairly" easy to find. For years, I had trouble finding a large date one.

    The ultimate cool find is the proof small date over large date 1960.

    Awful scans, they look like they are dated 1900.

    What crumbles my cookies is how the plastic is sharp but the coin is “stuttered”.

    The coin's surface is too far away from the scanner's surface. That's a scanner's version of "bokeh".

    You'll need to either take the coin out of its holder and place it directly on the scanner, or use a camera.

    Edit: note that the half-dollar, the thickest coin, is least blurry; it's closest to the scanner's surface. The dime is blurriest, because it's furthest away.

    How did the mint package/mail the 1960 proof set? I assume it wasn't in the Whitman'esque plastic snap holder pictured.

    All five coins and a plastic token heat-sealed into flexible plastic film, mailed in a manila envelope.

    I have seen this effect on other photos and never really knew what was causing it. Now that you explain it, it seems so obvious.

    Yes, this. From late 1955 though 1964.

    I would only correct this to say that the Philadelphia Proof Set "token" is made of silver metallic colored paper. The Mint Set tokens of this era are plastic.

    It happens when the large date hub is used to create the first impression on a working die, and for some odd reason a small date hub is used for the second pressing into the working die - something they did then, but no longer do.

    I've never seen one in my hand - only pictures.

    It looks like a small date to me based on the garbage scans. I hate scanned coin pictures. They never come out nice. If you have a cell phone you would be better off taking a picture with that.
