As seen in the topmost image, the face of the display card features a portrait of President Coolidge, the United States A Flag for All Seasons (Forever®) stamp and a postmark of May 1, 2014, Plymouth, VT. The postmark highlights the day of the coin cover’s issue and the location is a reminder of Coolidge’s childhood home.

Great Job US Mint!!!
Now that we are about a third of the way through the ATB Series, a quick look back is in order. The series got off to a slow start, with some lingering State Quarter burnout suppressing ATB Sales. That burnout quickly dissolved upon seeing the new designs, and the realization that the new series seemingly surpassed the State quarters in beauty and design. This was no small feat given the effort put into the designs of those quarters.
The furor over these coins was accentuated once the bullion and Collector 5 Oz offerings were seen. And then came the Hawaii 5 Oz.
It was very beautiful in the smaller version, but the 5 Oz- well- that was off the chart exquisite. Collectors found out that “Enhanced” techniques were used on the coin, and the realization set in that collecting the ATB Series, both the regular issues, and now the 5 Oz coins, was a different ball game.
An exclamation mark was affixed to the series when the US mint decided to make “S” circulation coins, something not done since the 1950’s. The rolls began being sold, and the US mint started this new series by labeling the first issues “PL”. All the old guard remembered that used to mean Proof Like, and some ordered early and often. I, at least, thought “maybe these will be proof like”. Once I opened my first roll, it was apparent that the mint meant business selling this new entree. For four or five issues, the PL did indeed mean Proof Like, with the coins obviously struck from proof like planchets and proof like dies. I still marvel at the Denali issues, opening my S roll time and again in disbelief at how beautiful those quarters are.
Now with Shenandoah having just been released, folks know the quality is sellable. Some MS- 68 examples have sold on EBAY for hundreds of dollars. And it only takes a second or so juxtaposing the prices of the usual highest quality issue- the proof Silver issue- with a clad issue which outpaces the silver issues, and also sells for more than the 5 Oz. that if that is not value, no such word exists.
So I wait with abated breath now for EVERY new issue, and busily open one roll of each- P,D and S, to find the Proof Like issues. If I don’t find it in my issues, I buy more. I also order from a variety of sellers on EBAY until I have one roll of each.
A completed set of these thunderously beautiful coins in Proof Like condition will sell for whatever the seller wants, certainly.
And it is a whole new ball game, with the HOF Baseball issues having been just released. Just one of the ATB Clad Shenandoah quarters (the mainstay workhorse of Proof sales) in MS-68 condition, also sells in some instances for more than the Proof or Uncirculated HOF Silver Dollars. And that includes the first release and First Day of Issue, sold at the Baltimore Coin Show on day one of release.
Taking into account that only 400,000 of the HOF Dollars were issued over all sales options. Incredibly, the “S” ATB circulation issues are minted in the millions, and still the price of the plentifully issued “S” circulation quarters values still outstrips even the HOF Silver Dollar issues, making the entire market now turned on it’s head simply because of the quality of one itty-bitty circulation issue.
I have been collecting for all my collecting life, now numbering half a hundred years. I have never seen this circumstance before, and folks, we may never see it again.
It’s a whole new ballgame, and the winners are- well, us. Everyone now collecting ATB issues. Pat yourselves on the back if you own the ATB PL “S” issues from the start. You are now owners of some of the finest circulation quality issues EVER PRODUCED. Not simply “Produced in the last 50 years”, but EVER produced.
And the prices on EBAY are just the beginning of the wonderful stories that time will ever tell about US Mint quality. Unfolding before our eyes in the coming months and years will be a mad scramble to get the elusive HOF Baseball coins, but an even greater scramble to assemble an MS-68/69 set of ATB quarters. And you can be sure, an MS-70 example or two will indeed surface from the ATB issues, and folks owning them will be richly rewarded.
It’s a whole new ball game, and the US Mint has home field advantage. If you are a mint purchaser, you are certainly on the winning team. Funny, I don’t feel so much like Charlie Brown any more.
