Re: Canadian 1953 six coin silver proof-like set
Hi Kelly, welcome to the site. The sets you are describing are quite difficult to obtain, though they are out there. I am fortunate enough to have a couple, both with Shoulder Fold.
One must remember that these 1953 sets came in different qualities. One certainly PL, and quite spectacular. The other sets are basically just uncirculated coins, often nice, but not of the quality of the PL issues.
Remember the mint did not call any sets PL, rather these are terms numismatists used to better describe coin quality.
So, my questions to you are:
1: Are the coins NSF or SF issues?
2: Are you sure they are of PL quality?
3: Can you include pictures of the coin(s) in another post?
If these coins are of PL quality, I would recommend certification. If you are in Canada, you may want to discuss this with either ICCS or CCCS. I live in the states, and utilize PCGS. Many in Canada find using this service more difficult because of border issues. Once you get a professional opinion as to grade, values will be easier to establish. If they are really nice pieces, they could certainly be worth a few thousand dollars, at least.
Congratulations, and good luck. If you need further information on the certification services, just let us know.
By the way, there are also specimen coins produced this year, but I really didn't want to muddy the waters and make the post more confusing.
