What is the difference between a coin from an uncirculated set and just an individual uncirculated coin as far as grading goes? Looking at the CDN 1996 set for example, you can find the whole set in classifieds for around $15 factory sealed. Yet when you look up individual prices, they add up to much more than that in just MS-64. Are coins in sets not of this grade? The coins in the sets don't seem to have any mark that differentiate them from regular coins.
Are coin sets usually of less grade than that?
I'm new to collecting but have many complete sets from the late 80's through the 2000's. I guess I'm just trying to figure out what I already have.
