OK, this was the one I got from mcmxi, I was confused for a while. It is a 1964 proof set in a Whitman holder.

The scan doesn't do it justice. The five coins are in brilliant condition they look as good as any other new proofs I've received.

Auctions depend on many factors like grade and rarity.
Also auctions like eBay can set unrealistic values like a million dollars for a piece of lint.

I base value on dealers who sell the coins and sets.
