1987 United States Proof Set

Two great things about United States Proof Sets in the 1980s and 1990s are that they are readily available and they are low cost. The 1987 United States Proof Set is a great example of this. 3.9 million of these sets were made that year and the set is under $10 to own. Today’s Deal is a little better than that.

Rush Precious Metals through their Amazon storefront is selling the 1987 Proof Set for a mere $7.20. That includes free shipping for those of you who are Amazon Prime members. Even better, it will come with all of the United States Mint’s original packaging.

  • 1987-S Jefferson Nickel
