why are proof sets worth less than the individual coins?
Anybody know why a proof set is worth less than each coin individually? I have a set of 1955 - 1964 proof sets and when I look up say, the 1955 franklin proof in a 65 0r 66 grade, that one coin is worth ( supposedly) more than the proof set all together. Am I wrong assuming the coin in the original plastic is a 65 or 66 grade? Geez they look absolutely perfect through the mylar.
I'm a newbie so be gentle.
