I called the mint today about my 38390xxx order. The lady I talked to said that everything was in order, she saw no cancellation notice and that I should be mildly optimistic. I'm screwed......
Come on Buck lets be a little more Positive ... you have just a good of a chance as anyone else to get your order...Have happy thoughts
I see that you are very knowledgeable and experienced with the US Mint, LOL.
We gotta keep a sense of humor about us, else we would become loonies like those running the mint. Oops, the mint is headless. Maybe someday they will decide to put somebody in charge of that place, then we will have a full blown mint director, and not somebody acting like they are.
Hang in there
I will stay strong, however! :yes:
I thought your comment was funny Buck!
went from back order to " in stock and reserved". Order # 383883XX 5:57 EST. No tracking number yet and cancel box still there..
thought all was lost. HOPE EVERYONE ELSE GETS GOOD NEWS''''''''''''''''
I'm pulling for you Buck to get yours soon.
Keep hope alive.
My order finally went to ISR, 383868XX. Cancel box is gone, but no tracking number just yet.
No need to be sorry Buck, I thought it was funny!
We have to keep humor to remain sane,lol
ISR status I've seen yet . (38392xxx)... yes Copper Head keep hope alive!!
Its almost like the mint doesn't care how its packed because they know you're not going to send it back! Unbelievable!
Sorry to hear of your bad mint packing job. I've seen tons of comments just like yours, so it's not just now happening. That started when they shipped the first box. I was really lucky, all of mine were packed perfect and tight. There's no way I could have sent a sealed box in for grading, not knowing if the might just slide aroind and get banged up during another 2000 ride in the trucks.
Funny you mention that TC. It does seem strange that they didn't do hardly any shipping for about a week, and now thousands more get shipped. A friend and I were discussing that yesterday, and how they could very easily mint another 15,000 to make everyone around the cuttoff time happy, and nobody would ever know...not even the grading companies. I guess a handful of people would know, but even they could never prove it. They don't even have a mint director to control it. I think the main problem would be accounting for 15,000 extra ounces of silver.
In the Mint's defense, Onecenter, your box was badly damaged. I'm guessing that may have happened during transit. My one set arrived in such good condition, you would have thought the Mint personally delivered it Alaska.
:hail:Congrats to Cochisz, Flying Dog, Copper Head & Krispy. Btbglb52, you are next, "come on down". :hail:
