They get them from the mint, or a coin dealer.
You have got to understand, once somebody looks at the coins and determines that they will NOT grade high, they sell them at a loss just to get rid of the things.
Oh, well that is good for people like me. When I buy my proof sets from ebay, do I need to make sure they include the CoA? Or is there not a need? I think that if it has the mintmark S, it is proof. And i can determine if it is silver proof accordning to the weight.
Proving that the coin is a proof or that it came from the SF Mint has nothing to do with it. Many collectors prefer to have the COA & OGP because it is part of the provenance.
By the way, not all proofs were struck in SF, and not all coins struck in SF are proofs.
I'm beginning to wonder since all the proof eagles have been suspended and there was no 2009 proof silver eagles, if I understand correctly.
The Mint is under no legal obligation to make the Proof SAE's. They are only required to produce an uncirculated bullion coin. I'm not sure about the Proof Sets for the regular issues.
