Remaining Population of "Boxed" Proof Sets (1950 - 1955)
Does anyone have an estimate of the number of original proof sets from 1950 - 1955 remaining in their original boxes?
(To be considered original, I would want the coins to be in the original brittle cellophane, staple intact.)
They are quite neat things. The two I have (1952 and 1953) are surprisingly well-preserved, though I almost never look at them, to avoid damaging the cellophane. I have a fairly nice 1954, but don't consider it original, since the coins have been moved to softer plastic pouches.
