    That's where I'm at in my thinking... PCGS GEM65 retails $250.
    The Buffalo looks GEM too and the dime and quarter might be a nice surprise.

    The Peace looks choice, but we'll see. May be too many marks to make it not worth grading.

    It's nearly impossible to detect luster from the scans, so I don't feel comfortable labeling any of the coins with numeric grades...

    But yes, the Buff looks sharp, as well as the Merc. The Peace however shows some decent reed/bag marks that'd keep it from gem at our host's firm, IMO.

    When you get the set in-hand, be sure to post some REAL photos (not scans!) here. image

    Thanks guys, I appreciate the good words.

    -Will slab it if the coins appear GEM for the submission.
    I have a grouping going in and may add from this set.
    If so, for sure will subscribe to this thread and list the grade(s) upon completion.

    Nice set, but each coin is about MS63'ish, maybe 64'ish.
    Not worth sending in, but will stay housed in the plastic Capital holder it arrived in.

    What a nice 1935 type set. Would not be easy to put one together. Looks like a great deal if all you paid is $125.

    Looks like you picked up a really good one.

    This thread is over a decade old so it’s probably a moot point. Although, I’m curious what compelled @MrScience to resurrect it.

    This is the second decades old thread revived by MrScience for no apparent reason, rather odd.

    They probably were, just experienced the same fate as most other old thread pics (format not supported anymore?)

    Well here is a set just closed. A 1939 Philadelphia BU set housed in a Capital Plastics holder that says proof set .., sold for a few hundred too much.

    Not sure you could even call that BU. Looks to me like they are all AU, except maybe the cent.

    How did that even have bids as a "proof set"? Wow..

    Isn’t that a material false statement by the seller that should be illegal

    This is in no way a defense of the seller, but the title of his item (ended Jan 4):

    1939 Proof Set Proof Totally Original Set in Plastic Holder, Nice
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/234838268067?

    looks suspiciously like the title of another item (ended Nov 6):

    1939 Proof Set Proof Totally Original Set in Plastic Holder, Nice
    https://www.ebay.com/itm/275517298645?

    If you look at the seller's stuff, you'll see he's not a coin dealer. He probably clicked on the "Have one to sell?" link in the November auction. Who knows whether or not he even knows what a proof set is. Again, this is not a defense of the seller.

    Those “proof” sets that are really circulation strikes are relatively common in the 36-42 era. I try to catch a lot of them and let the seller know, but a few invariably slip through the cracks especially when I’m not looking for them.

    I suspect a lot come from sellers who simply inherit the coins and have no idea what a proof looks like.
