3 strikes.....you're out!
Am I upset with affluent coin dealers?
Yup, at least one has ired me to a boil.
When you have enough money to buy 200 silver Commemoratives at a time(Abe Lincoln in this case), you should be able to fulfill a presale promise. Right?
I guess I have to loan them my hard earned funds for 30 days or more. No interest, no coins, and no communication? After 35 days I get an email that the coins arrived from the Mint. Woohoo.
I am just a little guy sitting home with both the uncirculated and proof for a month.
I submitted coins to NGC after I received my Abes, as I figured I would have the first slabbed out of NGC......wrong again.
My coins are back and put away for 2 weeks. I just now get an email about his coins showing up.
I'm a month late and 2 dollars short.....get it?
A good thing I'm not talking about my girlfriend.
I paid a premium for service I never received. I could have sent my own to be graded and took a chance on getting 70s. But no, I trusted a "reputable" dealer to do it.
I can buy the pair for one half of what I paid.
I'm a jerk for not asking for my money back? I did enter into an agreement. I know my word/money is good.
I'd love to be more knowledgeable, and have the monetary requirements to become a dealer with NGC.
Alas, too little of either too late in life.
From now on coin purchases will be with a dealer that can deliver goods....not promises.
Another valuable lesson learned. I guess to some, money is more important than coins.
Didn't Yogi say something like that?
Fool me once.....shame on you.
I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else in the Registry.
I'm off to the mailbox for some good news.....I hope.
Enjoy the moment!
