I hope this is the right forum area for this...

I know that proof or mint sets from 1970s through early 2000s arent worth much, but I wanted to ask if there were things I should look for in the sets I have that could be valuable, like any errors, coin that was made a certain way, has a certain look, etc...

I have from 1972 - 2009 so just wanted to know if there is anything I should take the time to check for or just let them stay as they are in their packaging.

Thank you!

There are a number of proof no S mint mark issues you can look for odds aren't good but you never know. The list includes 1975 and 1983 dimes and 1990 cent, to name a few.

Thanks for the information.

I also meant along the lines of pulling them out to get them graded (the mint sets specifically) individually and if that would even be worth while for some of them?

Check the 1998 and 1999 sets for Close AM. It is a bit confusing, but proofs are supposed to be Wide AM and circulation strikes are supposed to be Close AM. There exists both aberrations. A Close AM proof is worth $150+

As some on this forum have said, a coin should be worth about $150 or more to make it worth the expense involved in having a third-party grading service look at it. (Some may send coins to be graded in bulk, perhaps lowering that number a bit.). Sure, some folks have lower-value coins graded, but is it really worth it?
