Hi Everyone,
I bought this 1908 specimen set for around $1000 USD, and I was just curious whether or not I should grade it? I don't plan on selling in the immediate future, but I do plan on selling it eventually, and I want the coins to be protected. Any thoughts on grades and value, and whether I can get more if I sell them individually or as a set?
Thanks in advance!

Will get pics tomorrow!

Did this set come in the red leather case with purple inserts?
Also who graded them as Specimens. Would like to see photos
before making any call on this set.
The book price on the 1908 Specimen set is $4500.00 CDN.
The case alone has a book price of $350.00.
Looking forward to pictures, you don't often see these sets.
Don't argue with an idiot, he will beat you with experience.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Will get some better pics, especially of the case too. Super excited to pick up this set tomorrow! This set has been on wishlist for a long long time, glad to finally get it at an affordable price too.

I have no experience with this sort of thing, but I assume a good part of the market value assumes the original packaging, as here?
