I remember that in spring of 08 they did the same thing but I forgot about it. One guy was really throwing somebody elses proof silver in the melt bucket. Yesterday I had a group of about 15 to 20 modern silver proof sets (2003, 04, and 05) and silver quarter sets of same and that's what they based the price on for the quarters was dead melt. I was doing a favor trying to sell them for a friend and he said he would take $800 for the group and that was quite a bit lower than he paid of course - the best offer I got was $350, the best and he did not want them. Ah the true value of many modern mint products - as time goes on I see that most of this stuff is the very worst investment there is in the coin world. By the way yesterday's show was much better than months past and buying selling was brisk for gold and silver. Some of the moms and pops were back buying coins to fill sets though so there is some hope again as we get near the holidays. As stated above the modern mint and proof sets best bid was 15 back and the worst was more than 20 back with the seller offering hoping they would not even have to buy them for any price. No one had any 09 mint sets yet and hard to believe but world coins and tokens were being bought and sold more. Seemed to be a lot of GSA dollars on dealers tables and though BU they are dogs, no quality left in those boxes - the ones that have been nice have went home to plastic and I get that all right. 2009 Lincoln rolls are dead as well they should be we will be pouring through them for the next 10 years at face value, (I dread it already)! Some people talking about the unavailibilty of 2009 nickles, dimes (as they have on here) but they to will be propping open doors soon at about the time everyone will want 2010 stuff most likley. You never know!
