I agree.  Finding a complete set like that is very cool. Congrats. From the pictures, I can"t guess a grade, or tell if they are MS or proof, but I can tell that I like 'em!

Beautiful set!  I have the 1887 6 Pence proof.  Hard to determine on grade concerning your set- have you had a chance to look at the reverse of coins?  Curious to the toning on that side as well.  Very nice having complete set intact- like as well!

Hi there, 

 

I have not had a detailed look at reverse yet. There's similar toning all I know. Is there anything on the reverse that can determine if there a proof coin or not? 

 

When i get chance I will add some more photos.

The proof I have has mirrors in the field.  Of note, your set indicates "specimen set," on box, so, may not be a proof set but looks to still contain very nice uncirculated strikes.  That said, I don't know for sure as this is beyond the scope of my knowledge.  The internet is your friend on this to research, and there are world coin collectors on this board that have much more knowledge than myself.

This is what I use to research value, and mintage with any foreign coins.  Always a good start.  From there you are able to get an idea at least of value.  I'm leaning towards that you have an uncirculated set, as the mintage for proof are really low.

Truth be told that does not look Proof,the edges should be close to what looks like a Engineered Cog,sharp as hell.

Take each coin out look at it edge ways,every line should look like a synchromesh,having said that you might have part proof, few do have the look from the pictures.

Specimen set....don't get to held up with that,they used that to describe a Proof set,owever How easy is it to take one coin out?

Thanks just bob what is the price to this?

4% of the fair market value of the coin ($25 minimum), with exceptions for some moderns and gold coins.
