One of anything is enough.

That's a very broad and subjective statement.

I'm with you there. I buy two, however. One to put in an album, one to keep in OGP.

I see piles like this at the LCS shop from time to time. I favored some of the special mint sets myself.

Whoever thought that investing in cardboard was a good idea... well.

I bought my fair share (and more) of baseball cards in the late 90s but it was fun for me. For the most part I bought higher end sets and I still have most of them. Finishing some of the rarer parallel and insert sets is still on the fringes of my collecting, some 20 years later.

Cars.
They are the most efficient way of wasting money that I know of.

I have many 2000-2009 silver proof sets. At the time I was accumulating them they were selling for just a little above melt value. Unfortunately "Melt Value" has declined significantly, and when you take the ebay price, less fees and postage, it doesn't really make sense to sell them. Local dealer doesn't want them either.

I wonder how much Provident or APMEX would pay. Could be less than eBay, even after fees, though.

At this point, I'd wait and see what happens to the price of silver. It dipped recently, but is now making a nice recovery, and might even keep rising.

I recently bought a small bunch of 1970's commemorative Canadian silver dollars, assuming they were 80% silver, and then learning that they were 50%.

Depends on what your goal is. If you absolutely want to turn a profit on a loser* no matter how long it takes then it definitely doesn't makes sense to sell. However if you want to cut your losses and put your money elsewhere where you have a chance of recouping your painful gouges...that might make more sense.

*FWIW: I am invested in silver from when it was stupid to invest in silver. I am hanging on to it because I can and we'll see what happens. I'm in a similar boat so I feel I needed to qualify my subjective remarks.
