Spink sold a Proof 65 in their New York Auction in January for $15000 which at the time was around £11,000 which with premium would be a touch over £13000.

Guest 1937 sets

Be careful what you pay,  the bubble has burst on the 1937 sets .....the days when every dealer had one at £!4k + are gone....recent auctions see them going for under 10K including BP

£8-10k are for ungraded ones, i've been on the lookout for a good set that would be worth grading for a 65+ and its tough to find one.

I wouldn't touch these with a very long pole. IMO, there are just too many around both graded and ungraded with likely some very nice ones out "in the wild". Even more mystifying are the proof late Vicky gold from 1887 and '93. Yikes!

The 87,93 and 37 are all very nice which makes them desirable but with the mintage numbers considered are well over priced now. I would like any of the coins from either sets though cant bring myself to spend what they fetch now. If people keep paying they'll keep climbing... :angry:

These at one time were quite inexpensive and then about 10 years ago began to slowly take off, first the sov and then the others. I got a P63UltraCameo 1887 half sov for USD 350 and then a 1937 P70Cam sovereign for about USD1150

P70 (I assume PR70) for the 1937 is a typo? Surely no George VI proof can be graded so high?
