Found this in my grandfathers collection. I know its not really considered a key date or anything, but I thought I would toss out some eye candy for you all. Let me know if you think it has much value above and beyond.

All I know is that it is a beautiful set!
My name is Devin, and I have been collecting now for around 2 years. I love early American coppers. I set up at coin shows and sell on eBay with my dad (I own most of the coins we sell, and he owns most of the currency), and most of all... I have fun!

Visit my eBay store, I have lots of BINS and auction style listings:

Always nice to look at and going for about $20 on eBay so more than 20x face. I would keep it, especially having the Treasury envelope and insert.

Two reasons to get excited. It was your grandfathers and it is my birth year . Check it for errors/varieties but label it as coming from your gpa and put it away for safe keeping.

Nice silver proof set . Probably your grandfather bought it directly from the mint for $2.10 . keep passing it down through generations .
Don't take life too seriously and remember it is just a passing fad ......

The sets pre-1965 are always nice since they do have silver. I'd save that set exactly as it is.

The law authorizing the clad coinage wasn't passed until May of 1965.

I'm feeling old. As a kid, bought one of those when they were brand new at the local coin shop.

I would also collect chocolate coins, except for that one problem.

My birth year as well. I have everything of my grand dads. Times would have to get really bad before I turned loose of a single item. Nice set, keep it!
