Anyone know the value of a 1991 quarter taken from a proof ( double dollar) set?

Hmmm, really? => I might even say a bit more considering that 1991 was such a "lean year" => only 459,000 coins minted ...

Ummm, for a 1991 silver frosted proof I'd think more along the lines of $30-$40 (but DBM has far more posts than me, so take my estimate with a grain of salt)

I don't think they minted any silver quarters in 1991. Pretty sure that only started in 1996.

you're right => just a "frosted proof" ... nix the silver part ... but I'm sticking with $30 (but of course, I often pay through the nostrils for my coins! *sigh*)

How about a serious look... and pay what you're
willing to pay if you want one. There are some on the market but down the road they'll be even harder to find.

Assuming it's in an ICCS flip and grades the usual PF-67, I think you'd be looking at spending $30-40, quite a bit more if it was PF-68. It's the star of the 1991 set, and I can't see anyone breaking a set to sell one for $15.

I believe that even at $15-$20 they are way overpriced.They are not rare at all in proof sets. 132,000 '91 proof sets were issued, compare that to '94 and '95 proof sets with mintages of 104,000 and 102,000.The price of '91 proofs is based on hype and lack of collector knowledge,not on rarity.

I apparently follow the same approach as DBM when I'm trying to determine the current value of modern coins (and sometimes traditional coins as well) -- check completed eBay auctions that actually sold.

Once you have a look at a group of completed auctions, you begin to get a reasonable sense of what collectors are actually willing to pay for a particular coin. Dealer price lists and instant purchase options on on-line sites are fine, but they often can be higher than what collectors actually pay for a coin when it is allowed to seek its "natural" value via auction.
Collecting history, one commemorative coin (or medal) at a time!
