1979 SBA Proof Clear "S" (Type II)

1979 SBA Proof Clear "S" (Type II)

My wife's aunt found a number of late 1970s proof sets that her late
husband left when he died.  Not very interesting except that two of
the sets appear to have the 1979 Clear "S" Susies (we had a large
group of '79 Filled "S" coins - type I - released by our local post
office last year, so I feel pretty confident that these are type II).
I would like to help my wife's aunt and am wondering does anybody make
a market in such items?  Thanks for your replies -

Check Ken Potter's educational gallery site for images and explanations of
the two types.  Your confidence may or may not be justified.  Check the
bottom of the page for the info on Ty I and Ty II mint marks.  A lot of
other images will load first, so if you have dial up it may take a few
minutes.  The link;

FWIW, the Type II Proof Suzies carry a pretty high premium in high grades.
Check out PCGS' price guide:
