If a proof coin holder is scratched, is it advisable to replace the coin holder? If so, what kind of case do you recommend and where can I buy them?

Depends on the year. Most modern clad sets are not worth it.

I would not worry about it. Sell the set as-is and let the buyer make the decision on the case. There is a good chance they will just discard the case and put the coins in an album.

If it is an older set (when they were somewhat sealed) and they want the OGP case, nothing you can do to fix that for them so no need to try. Newer sets can be opened and closed, so you make be able to find a used OGP lens; however, I still think it is best to leave that decision to the buyer.

For post 1999 set the holders can be opened and closed without damage so swapping the coins to an undamaged OGP holder would be best. You can possibly find empty holders being sold on ebay or put ads on forum marketplaces looking to buy same. There are probably members breaking up sets that would sell the holders. That would probably be cheaper than buying aftermarket holders.

For the pre 1999 sets that isn't a possibility as those sets were sealed and the holders are typically damaged, sometimes severely, in trying to open them. In that case either go with an aftermarket holder, or put them in a post 1999 holder, which in my opinion looks better, and I believe some of the sets don't have the year shown on the holder.

You might find Coin Supply Express to be of some interest.

Click on Holders and Display in the Home Page bar, then Capitol Plastics in the first dropdown menu and then U.S. Proof and Mint Set Holders in the Capitol Plastics dropdown.

Given the option of choosing between a very interesting coin or a rather valuable one, I'd choose the former every time . My vexation lies in the fact that the two so often coincide.

Here are the best pics I could muster.
The scratches look worser under the scope.

Ah...I think we were thinking of proof sets. For single proof coins, you should be able to just get the appropriately sized airtight sold at coin shops/online. If you are just buying one, it is probably cheapest to just go to a local coin shop since the shipping would likely cost more than the airtight. Be very careful not to touch any of the surfaces when you transfer the coin since the proof surfaces will really showcase your fingerprint.
