Re: Unusual 2004 CDN Poppy Quarter

Can anyone tell me why proof sets from the 1970s to 1995 (not 1973) are retailing at around $30 to $60 while 1996 to date are all over $100? Is it purely demand? Should I expect that in the coming years the sets selling for $100 today will eventually be part of the $30 -$60 group? (or priced accordi...

Seems there was a humidity issue at some point in the last 40 years The other coins are all ok. I would like to take the set apart and clean/wipe the rim of the penny. Would also l...
