I deem this to be relevant to the thread, to my earlier post on the thread, and, perhaps, semi-interesting.

Albert Lee ( died March1973) One of the largest Proof Coin Dealers in the US in the 1950s , early 1960s .
Made up stamp and most likely self serving .
There is really no way to prove a Proof set of 1955 to 1964 era has never been opened or examined .
I for one would never pay a nickels premium for such a set.

Darn! @Pacificoin. I didn't expect to come out better informed than when I went in. Much gratitude.

Now I begin to wonder what old Albert had in mind. Frankly,I doubt he was referring to the manila envelope (the predecessor of the later to come cardboard box). Might he have been suggesting only that his customer leave the polymer envelope (predecessor to the plastic case) intact?

Probably referring to the pliofilm package,
but who knows !
With the Cameo craze of the 1980s on there are very few truly unsearched
Silver sets of the Franklin period .
