Still a 'noob' here.
Would these be considered "proof sets"?
The coins don't look 'pristine' to me.
Never considered using the Dansco album or removing them from their packaging and storing that separately!
DOH! See, it is useful to leave the house once in awhile!
No flak from me. I have a Lincoln cent Dansco including all the proofs. The holes are filed with proof Lincolns and they must have come from somebody's proof sets.
Very nice 1911 set.
My 25 year run
This is my 1968-1992 consecutive run of proof sets in a shadowbox case. I'm missing the 1990, waiting to trade an extra I have with a guy to get it. Starting out with three sets, buying 22 sets plus the case, ended up costing me $180
Love the shadow-box idea. Awesome collection!
Thanks for letting me share.
I have exactly what you have minus the 2010!! Cool
no they dont look pristene to me either. can i have them...lol.
Very aware of the low mintage for initially the Mint returned my funds with their "SOLD OUT" info. Much later I received
phone call with caller identifying self as US Mint related. I was informed that I could have 3 sets. Unbelievable, Yup?
I would not order at that time for I wanted to confirm that was a legal call. Too much inbetween to mention now, but I
authenticated and called the Mint at 8AM the following morning...call was transferred many times...then YES, I could
have the 3 sets. Now, I want to either sell the sets, or break them up and sell the Jefferson Nickel in it's Matte finish.
Of course, not any have been graded and my question is what are the sets worth....what is a single Nickel worth...etc.
I could post pics but they will not be of excellent quality like that of coinmaster1's...any sound advice will be greatly
man! You beat me to the punch! I thought that I was the only one who felt that these were a must have for my run of Mint Sets. Many collectors don't even know that these sets exist
