    It's October 18th. They're supposed to be moving. Although, I've noticed they're playing the " your item has shipped because a label was created" game with the LE set and the S proof two months later. Just because they say something has shipped it doesn't mean its moving at all. Usually means a label was created and the box is sitting there for a week now before it gets on a truck to begin the journey.

    They’ve always done that with the label before shipping. Their contracted company for shipping really isn’t great at all but it’s very easy to tell if it’s just a label or actually in route

    but at the moment (at least for me) my account at the Mint only says 'processing' not 'shipped' yet. Just a sign that things are starting to move since they don't say 'back-ordered' anymore.

    Yes, D/S at respective mints and privy's at Phil. I know NGC holders multiple coins in special, single holders...two coin holders, three-coin holders, etc...some graded and some not...but I don't know the details of how to arrange this or exactly the criteria...you might give them a call/contact to learn. I have one such and it's pretty nice...it's the last-year 1963 Franklin side-by-side with the first-year 1964 Kennedy...have seen other, more recent combos.

    A perfect fit...! And while recorded by many, none like the best/original by Etta.

    From my own experience with these issues--I was successful on the Morgan P & D & S and the Peace Dollar, but lost out on the Morgan CC and O Issues due to the Bulk Buyers Bot scheme--is to (1) be signed-up as a Mint Customer with an Account that has a valid Credit Card already registered, and (2) be on your PC or Phone App a few minutes before the Order Start Kickoff (12:00:01 PM EST) (2) Sign In and navigate to the Order Page for the Issue that you're interested in. IMPORTANT: copy and paste that Page URL into another window so that you have 2 identical windows open. WHY? I've found that because of the inundation to the Mints Server in the early seconds of the Kickoff, you will more than likely find that the page becomes unresponsive (hangs), or if you manage to populate all the required info and get to Checkout or Final Review only to see an ERROR MESSAGE highlighting in RED an entry that didn't take, don't curse and get frustrated and try to go back to reload the Info (as this just wastes time allowing others to get their orders in, and it may not work anyway as the Cache may keep that "bad" Info until you sign off and then On again); INSTEAD immediately go to that 2nd Instance and load the Info in making sure that you correct any misspellings, and changes to Credit Card info (such as the Expiration Date or CVV Number) that may have changed since you first signed up. ALSO, even if you didn't have a problem with completing the order in the 1st window, IF you want to also order a different version you can save considerable time by using this 2nd Window and therefore improve you odds of getting your order Accepted before the Mint closes down the ordering.

    P.S. if you did miss getting in on any of the 2021 Morgan or Peace Dollar Issues, you can go on the Mint's website and navigate to that Issues' ITEM NUMBER and click on the REMIND ME Button to have the reminder, IF any become available, be sent to your Email or as a Text Message. Sometimes the Mint, for certain technical reasons, doesn't coin the authorized quantity, or dealers or individuals return a coin, so there MAY be some availability in the future; in the case of the CC and O Morgans, the vast majority were scouped up by Bulk Dealers and some may decide not to have all of them graded--as they are typically do--because the market has not panned out for the desired profit margin that they had hoped for.

    this isn't a bad strategy, however every time in the last two years I've been on before an item goes on sale, they have logged me out when they activate either the item, or when they activate their cloudflare thing with the captcha. and I've needed to log in, while it's crashing. I've had decent success by copying the URL for each page I make it to successfully and pasting that in for when it gets unresponsive or bad gateway or whatever excuse they have pop up for why a page won't load.

    also the reminder will tell you way too late that the item is available to get any of what's left. I set the reminder on it just too see if they do put the remaining on sale at some point, but If I were actually really trying to get an item I missed out on, I'd be logged in, ready to go, and refreshing the page at exactly 7:30AM EST each day to see if they activate the item. usually it's just a few dozen to a couple hundred available which gets smaller each day as time passes.
    And while it's not widely known, plenty of people do know each day at 7:30AM EST the website updates the available quantities and any unsold are released for purchase until the item gets marked "sold out".

    I have 3 monitors for my desktop computer 2 are for the item I want to buy. If 2 items go onsale at the same time it's one monitor for each. The third monitor I have open in the middle between the other monitors. On that screen I have Notepad open - on that I type on separate lines all my information, name, address, credit card number, experation date (the CCV I have memorized).
    This way if anything does not pre-fill with saved info, all I have to do is 'copy/paste' as needed.

    For the people who ordered coins and cc number has changed since. Don't wait for an e-mail telling you have a credit card hold. Once you see the order processing, call the mint and tell them that you see the order processing and you believe that the order is in credit hold. They will look up your order number status and allow you the opportunity to reprocess the order with the new cc information. It takes about a half an hour to go through the process but at least the coins won't be canceled. Good luck. Regards.

    Agreed, I wouldn't waste any time on that issue.

    AVC is selling 2021 Peace Silver Dollars for $499.95. The NGC slab is marked High Relief, MS 70. I thought the US Mint said they were not making them high relief?

    I asked NGC this and never got a response. I was waiting to see if the labels actually came out like that or if it was just marketing images. They couldn't be made in high relief according to the mint.

    I am frustrated with the processes used by the mint and TPG companies. I successfully ordered the 6 Morgan and Peace Silver Dollars. My orders are now showing processing rather than backordered, and that is good.

    However, some of the coins have not only been picked up, but sent to TPG companies, been slabbed, and are back in the hands of TV hucksters, who are selling them for wide ranging prices.

    Two frustrations. I have coins I sent to NGC on October 6th that have not yet been entered in their tracking database (the $50 W Unc Gold Eagle and the two coin Silver Eagle reverse proof designer set), and yet coins they received no earlier than October 18th are already through the process and back with the hucksters. And secondly, I thought the Peace Silver Dollar was not going to be High Relief. I see the TPG companies are slabbing them as High Relief coins. ???

    My guess is they are paying premium for the expedited slabbing. I don't know what NGC charges but I do believe they have a one day turn around.
