On one of the sides written in pencil is the date, 2-3-62. I dont know if this is the date that the original owner received the box, or if its indicative of anything relevant. So February of 62 would seem very early by comparison.
To say they are scarce is an understatement. Somewhere along the line one of previous owners most likely searched the set for the better coins and cameos.

Original packaging: Each coin was sealed in its own compartment between two sheets of flat pliofilm.An octagonal, foil seal imprinted with "US MINT PHILADELPHIA" was placed in a sixth compartment, and the flat pack was then inserted into a mailing envelope with a card.
