    I'm not even going to take credit for buying this set and getting a good deal...bought it for just above melt a few years ago (from a coin shop) completely by accident. Completely by accident.

    Put it aside almost completely by accident (just thought the coins looked "nicer than normal." Kept it out of the auction pile because, thankfully, I had other coins to sell that I didn't care about.

    Totally forgot I had it until tonight when I just got the urge to poke through an airtite box where I have a few world proof/mint sets stored. What's different now?

    Well, now I know that Canada produced low-mintage proof like sets going back to 1954 (Why? Because I also accidentally picked up a 1958 PL set last year for melt and figured out what it was later.)

    Here's my favorite new set:

    Canada - 1956 PL set
    (6,500 produced)

    In what I assume is the original cardboard holder. All except the cent would probably grade at least cameo and the half, quarter, and dime are nicely toned.

    Will work on getting individual shots at some point (the scans don't do them justice at all but are quick.)

    I gotta ask... would you sell me that 25 cents and the 50 cents coins by itself ??? if so how much ? The better part of me is telling myself you would like to keep the whole set together. great set by the way.

    Totally appreciate the offer, but I've kept it this far by accident, now that I know what it is, I definitely want to keep it on purpose. :)

    I'll let you know if I ever decide to part it out.

    I got quite a few coins last fall, mostly small cents.
    I just posted this in another thread, it really fits here best.
    I have spent alot of time with this one, trying to figure it out. Before posting it.

    Whales have blow holes.......meaning no offense........Perhaps need to examine the surfaces of that hole with a microscope to possibly determine the true nature of its origin. Someone with a background in metallurgy might be useful. My background is marine engineering, and it looks a lot like the holes that HP steam can cut in metal.
