Open and Unopened Proof Set

2 posts in this topic

Open it. Most dealers will not buy a single unopened proof set. You can try eBay, but don't expect much of a premium.


Personally, to have a premium, I want the mint shipping box to be unopened. You can't reseal those. Individual proof sets can be sealed again with ease.


I've purchased unopened boxes (proof sets, mint sets, & SMS sets) and found nice coins. One box of SMS sets contained almost all doubled die Kennedy halves and several cameos. At the same time, a box of 1963 proof sets were dogs with lots of spots. It's a gamble.
