Time To Update Your Books.

With the release of the proof set that means that the other sets will follow. The proof silver and the  Uncirirculaded   sets. Plus the quarters if you collect them also. These are for the regular coinage that we use .except the silver coins Most of you remember last year's cent I posted. It was horrible. So are the nickels. Same packaging . Well the mint motto is it we screwed up last year let's continue. What gets me the nickel in the lens is perfect.. Why can't they put that nickel in the lens also. Or other packaging. No that would be good for the collectors.. I won't even post it. Hair line scratches a nice one over the date. Thanks for that one. Please end this peogram. Inside them MS 67 MS 69 and two MS 70. Is it worth it. Our them away and years from now send them in.

You are right. Once the mint screws up they like to continue it. When I read they were putting the nickel in the plastic bag I couldn't believe it. I bet they get the nice lens containers from China..

I suspect the very modest bumps the sets got last year because of the W Lincolns will be non-existent this year. Betcha sales are down for all three sets.  No one cares about W nickels.

Your rite. Burn me once haha on me burn me twice it's not going to happen. I just don't know why they continue to do this. Those who have the sets will put them in there albums and move on.

Curiously, I think things would be much better with the W's if the mint encased them in plastic like their proof coins. I actually like the cases the proof sets come in. I think the big gripe is the poor handling the W's get. If the mint understood collectors better they would know that collectors want their purchases to be pristine! Forget the mint mark gimmick unless you are willing to handle those coins with care like the other coins in the sets. Tell me which collector wants a run of the mill modern coin that grades at best MS-65 or 66 regardless of what mintmark appears on the coin.

I think collectors are getting suspicious (and tired) of anything the Mint puts out with a W mintmark anymore.

It's sad  it our own mint doesn't care about the collectors who buy for from them. I would always want to put my best product out there. They dont.
