I suggest not using a jackhammer opening the box.
Kidding aside, I've never had that problem with any proof sets I've purchased from the mint.
most of those sets can be pried open with a thumbnail -- then again, I've got pretty good thumbnails. They definitely aren't sealed, though, at least in my experience.
I hear speculation the mint will take a return and send it out again to another customer, I really can't believe it's not checked out if it's acceptable to go out to another customer and the reason for the return checked. I don't know how true that is, but I do know packaging problems occur, and I do think shipment carriers can be quite abusive with small packages and toss them around quite a bit.
Below isn't my picture, but mine was very similar to this one in alignment. I'd say likely 80+% of this particular product the dollar was a little bit, or way out of place.
in case that is something that happens.
Your note that you got some coins from the mint and they were loose? I'm pretty sure it didn't leave the Mint that way, or at least that is my opinion, because as mentioned above, those were the only items that I had any "minor" complaint about.
Anyway, if you are unhappy with what you got, they send a return sheet with each item they sell.
WOW. That is crazy to see. I can’t believe they would let that even happen. We pay good money for these things, problems like this should never happen.
Never knew that. So I don’t have to crack out all my no S proof coins. Kidding
