    I really like reverse proofs and other special finishes. I'd like to put together a 'special' set. Does anyone have a complete list of US issues of reverse proofs, etc.? I remember seeing a list a couple of years ago but I can't find it anywhere. Thanks in advance for any help.

    Sorry, but I find most reverse Proofs to be unattractive. I have only a handful of them that came in sets of coins.

    To me these special finishes are a marketing ploy used by the mint to increase sales of coins. They also charge more for them and have smaller mintages to grab your attention.

    Very nice to look at but I don't go out of my way to buy one. Thanks for the look-see.

    You are absolutely right, welcome to capitalism. Makes me want to run out and buy a set of fractional ASEs from Fiji, only 10000 made. I think these Fiji coins are like new cars, they depreciate right after purchase.

    Yes, that ugly dime was one of the coins that was on my mind. I believe it came with the Dr. Spock Polio vaccine set. I have one, and it's ugly. I thought I had taken a photo of it, but I was mistaken.

    I guess the best way for me to say it is they have an unnatural look to them.

    The mint has definitely become a capitalist enterprise these days. The prices are quite high because they are a monopoly that can get away with it. That is why I am weaning myself off of most of their new products.

    I think you missed the 2015-P $1 Johnson Reverse Proof and 2020-W Jefferson Nickel Reverse Proof.

    I was putting together an ASE Reverse Proof Set together as the mint was producing until I hit 2019, and they dupt me with the 2019 S Reverse proof. Wasn't able to get one online that day, and with the low mintage, it is over $1K now. I do have the other ones, though. Regards.
