1984 35th Anniversary 3 Copper-Nickel coins set
« on: December 26, 2010, 02:36:59 PM »
What is the going price for the 1984 PRC 35th Anniversary 3 Copper-Nickel coins set?

Is this seller way out of the ballpark on the asking price of US$890?

From what I've seen this seller knows what he is doing. Interesting.

Best wishes,

Yes, the asking price is way out of ballpark. The current price for this Shengyang Mint set is about $120. However, current price for Shanghai Mint (double sealed) set which has a much better proof surface is about $4,000.

Since the seller is very knowledgeable, the set may be in a much better condition than other Shengyang Mint sets. The pictures of this listing do not show the coins as a high quality proof set.

Please post pictures of the coins from two mints if you have them; and the non-proof version also.  I would like to see a side by side comparison of each.  Thanks.
