Can anyone describe to me how one would differentiate between an uncirculated coin from a bank roll, and the same coin from an uncirculated set that was in a Pliofilm set?
I know that you can usually easily identify a specimen (SP) coin from MS or PL.
There can be a significant difference in value between these two coins, as I'll try to show with the following prices of an Mint State 2010 25 cent Canadian coin.
Year MS-60 MS-62 MS-63 MS-64 MS-65 MS-66 MS-67
2010 - Caribou $0.53 $0.80 $1.33 $7.10 $15.70 $31.90 $58.50
Year PL-60 PL-62 PL-63 PL-64 PL-65 PL-66 PL-67
2010 - Caribou - - - $1.50 $3.30 $10.00 $25.00
Year SP-60 SP-62 SP-63 SP-64 SP-65 SP-66 SP-67
2010 - Caribou - - - - $3.10 $10.00 $20.20

The PL coin will have a mirror like finish. The MS coin will sometimes have a ''frosty'' finish, like light fogging of a mirror. The specimen coins will present a cameo effect, usually on the portrait.
SP look like this.
