Regarding the 2019 Mint and Proof Sets Four Years later

With these sets having been around for a few years, more often than not I encounter them secondhand without the "W" cent. I think of the 1996 mint sets having the "W" dime as a bonus and how they are considered incomplete without that coin. Is the same true for the 2019 sets? Are they incomplete without the "W" cent?

    They came with the set as offered by the United State Mint and that is how and where I purchased mine.

    Interesting question...I would not consider the sets themselves incomplete without the 'W' mint coins since the sets, whether unc or prf were from different mints and 'complete' in themselves. However I think if selling it should be called out as not having the bonus 'W' mint coin and therefore 'incomplete' as to what came from the USM.

    I’m gunna guess that the sets without the W pennies as well as the next year sets with the W nickels will be considered incomplete, if their gone them

    Three different 2019 sets included a "premium coin" that was "packaged separately":
    ~ Proof Set (19RG) - Proof "W' Penny
    ~ Silver Proof Set (19RH) - Reverse Proof "W" Penny
    ~ Unc. Coin Set (19RJ) - Unc. "W" Penny

    It's a little different. The 1996 dime was in the envelope with the set. The W cents were packaged separately. When selling them, you really need to be specific since people will see it both ways

    But the 96 w was separate from the others. In its own packaging as opposed to being in with the other coins. So they are similar in that respect.
    This I know because I just removed a 96w from my uncirculated set and popped it into my Roosie album 😉

    I'll guess this is a question for @JohnF Do greysheet prices assume the inclusion of the W coins?

    As others have indicated, my set has the cent in a separate envelope. I purchased it that way and keep it with the set. Cheers, RickO

    Thinking about it though, I have the 1996W dime in a PCGS slab... I think I have two actually, so that is not with the Mint set. Cheers, RickO
