My wife's family recently inherited a small group of 1984 "AMERICAN PROSPECTOR" 1-oz silver rounds that were purchased from NUNEMAKER'S coin company back in Oct. 1987. Is there any added value selling these as a group with the original mailing envelope and inserts or wouldn't that make a difference on the selling price. These have been held by the original owner for the past 36 years and appear to be in their original BU condition.

    $8.13 an oz. Dollar insurance at work.

    Likely no premium over others unless you find a collector who values the paperwork. put in on ebay as a 10 day auction and see what it fetches.

    Interesting documentation in any case. Purchased the week following the market crash!

  • I personally love paperwork and I think you’d get a bit more premium as a whole set. I think I’ve seen plastic strips of prospectors where they are all attached so unfortunately yours are not like that.

    Given that some counterfeits of Engelhard Prospector rounds exist, I think the provenance provided by your paperwork would add a little bit of value.
