I wanted to start a new collection for me to focus on in 2021, so I decided to get serious with my ATB quarter set. Once I order a proper album, my collection will kick off. Sense all the coins in this series can be found in circulation, I decided to add some fun and difficulty to it by including proofs for every ATB design. That's where my question comes in.
Online, a single proof national park quarter typically costs $3 each. That isn't too bad, but I am a budget collector that looks for every loophole that can save me some money. So I found a 2019 proof set with all 5 2019 ATB quarters for just $8, and a similar set for the year 2020 that is $9. For me to buy the quarters individually of one of those proof sets would cost around $15. That to me is a good difference.
I think you can see where I am getting with this. I know some of you if not all of you will think I would be absolutely absurd for me to crack open a proof set. Just keep in mind that these proof sets are selling for less than $10 each, which isn't much. What's you advice on this?1 year ago
