Once I opened up the package, however, I noticed that the new flips are noticeably thinner/softer/more opaque than what I'm used to. If I had to guess, I'd say they're about half as thick. Not nearly as rigid as they used to be. My questions are as follows: has anyone else (who regularly uses/orders these for their raw collection) noticed a change in the quality of product, or did I just get an off batch? Has E&T Kointainer followed the route of decreasing the quality in exchange for a cheaper price? If you've been using the newer composition, have you noticed a decrease in longevity (Do they scratch easier? Does the plastic break? Do the seams come apart? Are they still safe with your coins for long-term storage?) Thanks, I look forward to hearing anyone with experience/knowledge on the product.
