    How to use my Red Book to assess my CRH finds

    I'm trying to gauge the mintages of some coins, but I can't figure out how the red book works. I found a 1970S nickel (I did another post on this) but when I look at the book, there is one line that has 1970S and the mintage number is in parenthesis. The next line is blank (no date or mintmark) but there is a mintage figure and it is much higher than the prior line. what does a blank mean line mean and what do the numbers in the parenthesis mean? I tried looking in the "how to use this book section, but I didn't see anythign about this.
    Thanks all!

    The numbers in parenthesis are proofs.

    In this case, the first number in parenthesis is the proof mintage. Note the quoted value is only for the PF-65 grade. The next "blank" line refers to the same date and mint, but the mintage is for the business strike. Note the quoted values are for only MS-63 and MS-65.

    thanks guys. this one is so beat up, i don't think i could tell if it was a proof or not, but regardless, i'm pretty sure it isn't. thanks for helping me understand. i had that assumption, but didn't want to guess.
