This 1976 set includes all the coins struck at the Vienna and Hall mints, for both the circulated and proof coins. The brilliant uncirculated coins, while issued in mint condition, may show slight "nicks" or other minor surface marks. Even though they were never circulated, they may have been stored in bags or boxes at the Mint where movement may have made the "rub" against each other, causing "bag marks" which are superficial markings, which do not affect the coin's intrinsic beauty or value.
