I can't understand how it works, the value of the whole package contains 6 coins for a total value of about $ 30. But if I make the sum selling the single pieces in silver uncircolate MS65 of the $ 1/23 $ the 0.50 / 70 $ the 0.25 / 36 $ and 0.10 / 21 $ added and sold separately I get $ 150. Where am I doing wrong?? thank you

Two things-
First of all where do you get the grade of MS65 from.
Second, those are not MS coins, they are PL coins as those are PL sets, a big difference in price, for example,
a MS 65 quarter average eBay price is $32.12 while a PL average is $4.25.

Reason is simple.
A MS coin is a Business Strike made for circulation and is hard to find in higher grades. (MS65+)
A PL coin was made for collectors, not circulation, so the average grade is PL65 with many higher.

If you want to see what you have exactly and what it's worth, look at the Ebay "sold" link that I put in above. That's what they have actually SOLD for in the last month or so ... NOT a book or asking price.
