A (probably) slow-pitch, Washington proof quarter question...

    I recently purchased - and yes, I may well have been drinking at the time - an OBW roll of 1963 proof Washington quarters. Everything - the contents and wrapping - appears absolutely legit. Still, I'm a bit confused. Why would a bank have a proof strike roll of - well, any coin denomination? Did banks act as Mint agents in the past? Even more surprising, these are all, at the very least, cameo exemplars. I was twelve in 1963... can anyone fill in the history for me?

    The only people who put proof coins into rolls are collectors and dealers. I just bought a roll of 1963 proof cents because it was cheap.

    Dealers and collectors bust up proof sets and roll them. The Cam ones get sent in for grading.
