the un circulated sets, are the 70's and contain the "p" and "d" sets, in the white envelope, and the proof sets are 1980-s, to early 1990's..they come in the colored envelope, with the plastic case, of 5-6 coins, with the "s" mint mark..

So my question is, is there anything in these type of sets to be cherry picked? are there any dates that can be easily sold, or are these sets all boat anchors, at this point,

and it appears I will be buying for a little bit over face value for most sets...

Thanks in advance to anyone who has some input for me..

If you're buying for a little over face value, how can you really go wrong? Go into it expecting cherry picked sets and maybe you'll be pleasantly surprised. You might be able to fill some holes in albums. Worst case you put them into circulation or give them away as door prizes/stocking stuffers etc.

Since you hail from Canada, just verifying that these ARE U.S. Mint sets you're talking about?

If there are 1981-S proof sets in there, you could look for Type 2 mint marks. You'd have to look really close though -- the difference is subtle.

My local coin dealer searches and cherry picks everything he gets in, and re-verifies before he completes the sale, just in case he missed something and will change the pricing if so.

I wish I had a coins shop a bit less attentive nearby.... No deals to be had there at all. "wait a minute, this is an RPM... that changes things on the price."
Sigh.... needless to say, I struggle to make a purchase from there, there is no good deals to be had, he's even 15x face for silver and that was last time I checked when silver was more like 10x face.

It's definitely worth a look for sure, I envy what you have for a coin dealer :)

I'd likely change my mind about the purchase if they did that to me. If it's that important to him he should get it right the first time or make corrections in his free time not just before the point of sale. It's really just a waste of the buyers time if they have to guess what the price will be or what checkout surprise may occur. Very few things are rare enough to put up with that especially when there's no deals to be had anyways.

are there proof sets and unc sets from the late 1970s to late 1990s that are worth searching. As a younger collector I bought much of the sets in lots of five (silly) and recently opened two boxes of proof, prestige, Korean war vet, space shuttle etc. Looked to me like the silver ones went up but the rest not much. are there sets from that period I should check more carefully? thanks

I think you are mostly looking at boat anchors but at near face, what have you got to lose?

All mint sets are for the highest grades, the catch though is that you have to be good at grading moderns for that to work. Beautifully toned examples as well are worth pulling.
