I have not had much luck searching for this item. I found one on eBay, but I would like to know a little history. It was put together by the "Postal Commemorative Society", and it includes 34 silver quarters, (one for each year/page) and associated stamp. I have checked the quarters, and none are extremely rare, although there are several better dates.

Your local coin shop will probably have PCS products available for far less than you'll find on the bay. There are piles of PCS products on the discount table at my local shop.

Interesting set. I do not think I have seen that one before. I have seen plenty that focus on the Statehood or ATB series though.

This one is new to me, too.

I just gave my grandson ~half-dozen PCS-style products, in our case a 'golden' coin inside an envelope bearing a block of 4x 10c stamps with a First Day cancellation.

I explained the racket, the term-of-art for which would be "serial marketing".

Like everything else, you can enjoy it for what it is.

Cheers,

Why collect coins? Memory is the second thing to go. The use of money is the last thing to go.

I think I've seen similar things but the stamps were reproductions.

It looks like it would be fun to look through -- and great for getting kids interested in collecting.

to CCF Wildhare! I like that set. Are there any facts or historical blurbs on the backs of the cards?

And hey, 34 silver quarters is nothing to sneeze at. That's $100 at today's melt.

Thanks to all. I bought the set from auction (not eBay), and got it for a $28.00 steal. (+$15.00 S&H but I obviously made out) I think everyone was ignoring it because they had never seen it before. "32 silver quarters" piqued my interest immediately, even if each one was a dog. CelticKnot....yes, each page has a historical history usually referring to the anniversary of the year with the coin and stamp....all the way up to the anniversary of his death.

You did very well even with the shipping fees.

I checked on eBay and the two volume set for the state quarters cost more than what you paid -- and none of those quarters are silver!

Thanks. OP said 34 initially, thus my question.

I like the idea of this set in the fact that it offers more than just the coins. It reminds me of the ATB 3-coin sets and the Statehood PNCs. I'll have to keep an eye out for one.
