Too bad the quarter was defective.

As these three are proof coins, they have a beautiful mirror finish on both the obverse and reverse.

I have no specific knowledge of this seller. This is in response to the earlier one-star rating complaining about a spot on one of the coins in the set. Without seeing the coin, or maybe a high-resolution photo of it, nobody can say whether or not the spot is the result of improper handling, but if the set is still in the original mint plastic or cellophane, it probably was not caused by mishandling.

Some coins develop spots of discoloration ("toning", as the collectors call it), and there's really nothing that can be done to prevent it. When coins are graded for quality, toning is not considered a negative. Some would-be sellers even tout toning as a positive, especially if the color is golden, or if there are multiple colors on the same coin. Other sellers tout the absence of toning as a positive. Take your choice. Some coin sets come with a piece of paper printed by the mint saying that the coins may discolor over the years, and that the discoloration is not a defect. One cause of the discoloration can be minor impurities in the metal used to make the coin. With millions of coins minted per day, expecting absolute purity of the metal would be unrealistic.

Assuming the spot is toning, it may detract from the value in the reviewer's eyes, but will not, in general, detract from the selling price if the set is sold in the future.

To make the owner feel a little better, take a look at a chart of silver prices from the time of the original review until today. The melt value of the silver sets a floor on the value of coins containing silver, pretty much regardless of the condition of the (intact) coins.

This three coin 40% silver set was produced by the U.S. Mint to commemorate America's bicentennial and consists of an Eisenhower dollar (0.3164 ounces of silver), Kennedy half dollar (0.1479 ounces of silver) and Washington quarter dollar (0.08 ounces of silver). As these three are proof coins, they have a beautiful mirror finish on both the obverse and reverse. There were two proof sets produced for 1976, this one and the 1976 U.S. Bicentennial Proof Coin Set with the 1776-1976 Patriotic designs has six Proof clad Coins in all. The difference, aside from how they are displayed and, more importantly the silver content, is that the latter has the three smaller denomination coins, dime, nickel and penny. The 3-coin 40% Silver set may be displayed in the U.S. Mint produced and included stand-up folder, in rich red, white and blue colors. The coins are protected in acrylic holders. The folder arrives in a box and includes a COA (Certificate of Authenticity). The mirror finish on all three proof coins is fantastic. This set should be with any history lover or collector. As described by another reviewer, blemishes on coins are not uncommon. (This review is on the coin set, not the seller, of which I have no knowledge.)

The Silver Proof set I received is of very high quality with no noticeable blemishes and the Original Government Packaging is in great shape. I found the pricing to be competitive with other online sellers and I just saw the 3-piece Silver Uncirculated set on TV for $10 more than this 3-piece Silver Proof set. This is the 40% Silver Proof set, so pricing should not be confused with the Clad Proof set or with the 40% Silver Uncirculated Proof set. I am very pleased with my purchase from this seller.

Very excited to get my set, fast shipping...however my Kennedy keeps falling out of the capsule, it won't stay enclosed, will need to get another one for it i guess. The Kennedy also has some discoloration to it. I, for one, am a collector who doesn't like the "toning" All Government Packaging came with the set, including COA. Thank you all for this opportunity.

Beautiful set. The recipient loved it. A tad pricey though. I did use "buy it now" but if I had more time before the holidays I would have just made a bid.
