I got a lot of my modern proof nickels from eBay. At a pretty nice price too. Just take your time if you choose to go that route and you'll come out paying under blue book prices.

A local coin dealer can probably work with you and get high grade examples for decent prices. This will cost more than Ebay but will be easier and probably yield better examples.

Some of the coins I see on Ebay that are advertised as proof coins make me nervous. I like to authenticate what I am purchasing. I often times will pay a little more at the local coin shop but at least I know what I have in hand when I leave.

I have found that buying the proof set and cracking the case is about the most affordable way to go. Especially if you collect more than just one type.
I collect Lincolns and Jeffersons and Soon to start On Ikes and Maybe SBA and The halves haven't decided yet. But as I'll need Atleast 3 proof coins I might as well buy the set and break em up

I have purchased many of my proofs off of ebay. You just have to look for them and you will find that they pop up occasionally and are priced below RedBook values.

I agree.

But if you just want the nickels and not mess with the other coins in the set, the best place might be a coin show. I like coin shows because you can see the coin in hand before purchasing.
