TMKRunner - The Number One Finest 1965-67 SMS Mint Set
This is indeed a "Special Mint Set." From 1965-1967, the U.S. Mint did not strike proof 1c, 5c, 10c, 25c or 50c. Instead the Mint introduced the special mint strikes which were coins exhibiting proof characteristics. The TMKRunner collection has a set rating of 68.33 and has reached the number one spot in the All-Time rankings as well. This collectors' set contains a number of "Top Pops" leaving little room for improvement. Take a peak and you will also see that most of the coins in this set are imaged for your enjoyment.

What is a "Variety"?
A coin of the same date and basic design as another but with slight differences. PCGS recognizes all major varieties while there are thousands of minor varieties, most of which have significance only to specialists of the particular series. After hubbed dies, introduced in the 1840s, varieties are mainly variations in date and mintmark size and placement. Looking for the definition of a numismatic term? Visit the PCGS Glossary and arm yourself with knowledge!

Question of the Week By Nuncio Dalto
Is my 1994 Washington quarter a doubled die coin?
Based on the image, your coin's appearance appears to have been caused by die erosion and it is not a doubled die coin. Die erosion occurs when a die is worn from over-usage. In that case, the die will lose some of its detail and will sometimes create a matching reflection of the intended design. PCGS would not recognize this coin as an error.
