During a recent search of my parent's attic, I came across a sealed set of
coins from 1984.  I remember buying them when I was a kid, and the store
clerk talked me into purchasing the mint set.  A penny, a nickel, a dime, a
quarter, and a half-dollar (Kennedy).  I had completely forgotten that I
even had this thing, and it has now sparked an interest in collecting.  My
question is - How much is this set worth?  Where would I go on the net to
find out?  My guess is that it's worth $0.91.  Just curious.  Thanks for the
help in advance.  -eric

A recent Coin Dealer Newsletter lists the wholesale buy/ask prices for the 1984
mint set as $3.90/$4.40.

Oops!  It looks like what you have may be a proof set which has only one coin of
each denomination from the San Francisco mint S-mint.    The mint set would have
two coins of each denomination, one from Philadelphia (no mint mark) and one
from Denver (D-mint mark). If it's a proof set, the buy/ask price is $5.60/6.25.
