I brought them some gold pendants, rings and a few other pieces. I knew they weren’t worth that much but I needed the cash. The guys (and there are a lot of them) were really nice and not the least bit condescending. They know when you come in to sell there is a reason but they don’t make you feel bad or inadequate. The store is filled with interesting objects for sale and for show. A very nice and very fair place to buy and sell. I highly recommend them.
Proof set coin values can vary from year to year and from country to country. The proof sets made in the United States tend to carry the most value in the collectible coin world and, on some rare releases, the proof set coin values can be very high. For the most part, however, proof set coin values have been moving in a downward trend with the overall collectible coin market. Proof set coin values traditionally are higher than the face value of the coins themselves, especially when they are produced at the United States mints and made with United States coinage. The United States mints have made proof sets for other countries in the past including Nepal, the Philippines and the Dominican Republic. Some of these proof sets can have proof set coin values that are less than the face value of the coinage due to a general lack of interest in them by numismatists and the fact the coinage inside the proof sets have been outmoded by their host countries. Proof set coin values can be extremely high for some of the earlier United States coinage proof sets, beginning in 1936 and throughout the limited releases of the 1940’s and early 1950’s.
