Is there any real collector interest in this set? I have the first nine plus an extra Harrison and am debating trying to stop collecting them. For the price of ten of these I would rather have a roll of mixed date ASE's or a stack of 90%

Yes, but not nearly as much as ASEs, Morgan dollars, Lincoln Cents, etc. Medals have always been a niche collecting area - enjoyed by those that partake, but often bypassed by mainstream collectors.

With this statement, I believe you've answered your question regarding how to proceed. You have stronger interests elsewhere, so it might be time to pursue those other collecting avenues vs. continuing on with a set that doesn't excite you.

(PS: I don't believe the silver Presidential Medals are ever going to be a "hot" item within US Numismatics to the extent that their marketplace price explodes. They may go through periods of increased interest, but most collectors prefer coins vs. medals and this will always hold them back. IMO.)

I started with the intention of collecting the whole run. When the price went up by more than 50% I put a quick halt to the effort. I have the first 4 and will not add more unless they can be procured at a more reasonable price point. A shame - they aren't bad looking pieces.

They are decent looking I agree just I never seemed to have warmed to them. I hate to give eBay their cut for selling them I think I will try here and see if anyone wants to trade for ASE or 90% silver.

Have you tried trading them at your LCS. I have traded silver rounds at my LCS for a 1928 P Peace dollar.
