A collector from the East Coast was the lucky recipient of the VaultBox 1995 Silver Eagle Superset, featuring the key date 1995-W Silver Eagle graded NGCX Mint State 10 and two other 1995 Silver Eagles. The coins were consigned to GreatCollections who will auction the three individually on Sunday, May 28th.
VaultBox is the first firm to sell sealed boxes of NGCX-certified coins that mimic the thrill of opening sealed boxes of sports and trading card packs. In each VaultBox series, there are a few Supersets such as this 1995 trio. This is the first ever Superset to appear in auction.
The buyer of the sealed box is a member of the U.S. military who plans to fund the cost of his upcoming wedding with the proceeds. He paid just $739 and bidding has already exceeded $15,000.
The 1995 Silver Eagle Superset includes:
- 1995-W Silver Eagle NGCX Proof 10 Ultra Cameo
- 1995 Silver Eagle NGCX Mint State 10
- 1995-P Silver Eagle NGC Proof 10 Ultra Cameo
Each of the coins will be auctioned individually by GreatCollections and are housed in special NGCX holders with a striking red insert. All NGCX coins are graded on the new 10-point grading scale, with the perfect 10 equaling the 70 grade on the Sheldon scale used by parent company NGC and other leading grading services.
Bidding started at $1, with no reserve. Over 50 bids have already been placed and more are expected before bidding ends on Sunday, May 28th.

In the introduction to the above article the 1995-W Proof 10 Ultra Cameo is cited as being the key American Silver Eagle of the series. In the article’s opening sentence immediately below it is on the other hand the 1995-W Mint State 10 which gets that designation. I’m not sure exactly what I am misunderstanding here but I sure would appreciate a clarification.
C’mon man, everyone knows it’s the Proof 1995 W ASE that is so desirable. With all the disinformation and just amateurish journalism we are subjected to these days you should be used to it by now. I get a chuckle when one of those talking heads on the Sunday ‘news’ programs introduces their commentators and are introduced as ‘senior political reporter for…’ and they still have acne on their faces. My advice, don’t believe everything you read.
To clarify, Craig, I wasn’t asking for the right answer, I was instead puzzled as to why the CoinNews.net article seemed undecided as to what the facts were. I don’t ordinarily expect the dispensing of coin news on our site here to follow the likes of the trashy Fox “News” model so I was a bit perplexed by this apparent discrepancy.
damn you are annoying
Click bait gets em every time. I can’t figure out why there isn’t a comment section on the 2023 uncirculated ase release article posted Thursday the 25th. Guess no point since good Ole mike said they’ve been sold out since 5 minutes into his new year’s eve 1 hour coin show on hsn
Hi Dazed and Coinfused,
I have never noticed comments disabled on any article before. I would not have noticed if you hadn’t mentioned it because with few exceptions, I only collect proofs. I was not even going to look at that article until you said the comments are disabled.
From our years of experience with ConNews.net, Jeff, we can surmise that the absence of a Comments section in the 2023 ASE-W Releases Article is likely not intentional; my guess is there’s been a technical error. We’ll see.
$76 for UNC American Eagle.
Meanwhile, back in reality, price of Spot Silver? $22 and change.
I might disable comments, too – (or have a technical glitch).
I also thought the unc’s were sold out. but alas, if you want one they are for sale on the mints website. I don’t want any and will wait for the Morgans and peace dollars.
I like to say, Craig, that it’s better to have more choices than one could need rather than fewer options than one might want.
I’m not exactly sure what you mean by “click bait” in reference to today’s 2023 Uncirculated ASE-W release article, Dazed and Coinfused. Since there is a comment counter present at the top of the column I believe we can safely assume the absence of the comment section itself is a technical glitch/error.
I replied to your confusion of the title and and the substance of the article didn’t match. Click bait. Designed to get you to click so they generate revenue or bombard you with ads. Like yahoo always posting stories about pictures and you click and they never show pictures. Or you click on a feed thinking it talks about coins and the video is a video showing a campaign ad. Amd while fox News may or may not always present the best angle and is designed to get readers, watchers and subscribers, I know that if trump speaks, they’ll cover… Read more »
D & C, Just two random thoughts: 1. There are more poor white/Anglo people in the USA than any other “race/heritage” category. The USA census every 10 years required by the USA Constitution proves that put every time. 2. The Founding Father’s of the USA were all elitists & were very much so of an “us versus them” mindframe & they distrusted the illiterate populace at the time. They all spoke German & English & most spoke French also. They were landowners & most were slave owners. They did of course believe in Freedom & Liberty etc., but mainly to… Read more »
Columbus was given second class ships. He was actually given 4, but one sank shortly after leaving. His crew was also mostly prior criminals. It’s amazing he survived. Vikings raided the north. So whites versus whites. But the early settlers were 2 groups. Religious and enforcers. Puritans and quakers and others fleeing Europe for threat of heresy and the enforcers who went to see what they could exploit for the financiers at Dutch trading. Those were the ones that set up government and ruled over the Puritans who built the forts and hunted and gathered and risked death by Indians.… Read more »
Talk about timing. But I guess it proves the point. They don’t care about their people. And they make the charity only to subvert taxes and to make family and friends rich. If you want to help, volunteer time and not not money.
That article about the innerworkings of BLM really tells the tale, Dazed and Coinfused. I guess that entire larcenous family felt itself to somehow be immune from investigation. Surprise!
How right you are DandC! If only you could somehow be a profesor in one of those crazy liberal colleges, (how about CUNY, where that PR maniac went after a reporter with a machete), get interviewed on CNN or MSNBC to educate the fools in their audience………well, it’s only a dream. But again I say, Dazed and Coinfused for President!
By the way, that’s professor, my bad.
Oh heck, Coinman, in today’s considerably dumbed-down America I’ll bet even “perfesser” will do in a pinch.
I have a brilliant uncirculated 1995-W ASE, or was that a proof. I forget. 🙁
“But, with all our problems, I would still rather live here than anywhere else.”
The above quoted statement of yours, Seth, really resonated with me. Even taking into consideration all of the various faults, shortcomings and problems we might have to deal with here in these United States of ours, I would still not ever be willing to pick up stakes and plunk myself down anywhere else. This is my home; it is the only place I could ever be comfortable.
Wow! That was some rant and venting going on there! I say, DazedandCoinfused for president!!!
People only want to hear the truth when they think your reply will match theirs with impeccability unrivaled. However when the truth they lusted for actually goes against their grain, they call you crazy and or a liar. But if we all placate each other and spare feelings all the time, how will it really help us. I think of it as lemmings. Sure it’s a good idea to go for a walk. Great exercise. Sure it’s a great idea to walk in a large group. Safety in numbers. It’s an outstanding idea to walk single file. Others may pass… Read more »
In my opinion your best essay yet, Dazed and Coinfused. You really do call ’em as you see ’em and the fact that you hit the nail right on the head while you’re at it makes it all worthwhile.
I second your astute comment Sir Kaiser. DandC should be a journalist for the New York Times and Washington Post. What a brilliant mind and piercing commentary on today’s situation in our great or used to be great country.
And I second your recommendation, Coinman, with the sole proviso that we will be hearing about our still great country.
Yall never did say whether you would follow the lemmings or die alone, or suddenly by a predator
I would prefer to die so fast I didn’t know it even happened.
I want to die alone in my sleep & wake up in the “Promised Land” that is flowing with milk & honey…or at least Pepsi with milk… Lol.
Will you adopt my pet lemming when I die?…or at least pet my lemming! Lol.
You’ve left me wondering, Seth, whether to reply with “pet your what?” or “Why, I never!”
I see 2 to 4 folk agree with you, and I guess on a site that has 6 readers that’s pretty good. Actually I have no idea how many people check these articles. Same handful comment so hard to judge. Glad to see new folk time to time, but few and far between. Maybe I’ll start a blog and name it Biden’s penthouse basement blog.
Long ago when I worked in retail, management claimed that for every complaint or compliment they receive, there were 12 others who felt the same but never took the time to complain or compliment. You can be sure there are many reading the comments here that never bother to comment themselves.
Jeff, I would submit that not only are you right on the money with this point but that in fact if anything the ratio of non-contributors here to those who do participate is that high at the very minimum.
Aww. Yall gonna make me blush kaiser and coinman. I do enjoy writing. Wanted to be combat journalist but wasn’t in the cards. I wouldn’t be employed long. I’d write the article in my style, while they would want me to slant it and feed a narrative and include trigger words and talking points. They don’t photos of the pistol that killed x many people they want a m4 or military style (notice not military issue) rifle or assault weapon. Even if it wasn’t used. They want pics of mines or grenades for article about a fireworks accident. They want… Read more »
Dazed and Coinfused,
When I was a freshman at Michigan State in the fall of 1965 a couple of my dorm neighbors had a huge poster on their wall that proclaimed in giant bold letters “F**K COMMUNISM. I agree with that.
As I believe I mentioned before, my family and I lived behind the Iron Curtain from 1945-1955, so in this regard I know whereof I speak when I refuse to talk about the Russians and their political inclinations with any reference other than the negative.
There are not enough straight dudes left to run the government D&C! Everyone wants to be a minority these days. I have been gay since 6th grade, but had never heard the term “gay” back in 1974.
Nowadays, so many men are bi or on the
“down-low” as they like to say, to increase their chance of having sex on any given day with a male or female.
Gotta go now, it’s Drag Queen Bingo night at my local watering hole…much like Hamburger Mary’s bar/restaurant in Hollywood…
Since the country has of late been dividing into an ever larger number of genders, political parties, races, ethnicities, origins, religions and assorted other inclinations, Seth, we seem to be right on the verge of becoming a nation consisting entirely of minorities.
I like that quote a lot.
That gives me an idea about new bumper stickers that say “I’m a Minority!” or “I Want to be a Minority!”
Glad you took a liking to that quote, Seth. I will admit that Ayn Rand’s thoughts and beliefs can appear be a bit of a mixed bag, but some of the things she said are right on point and simply unforgettable.
