So each year I order sets to break up an put in my albums, not a big deal really, in most cases the coins are exceptional quality and all is good. This year because of the bonus penny offered with each set, I ordered an extra silver set (usually I order one since I have a complete set of silver proof sets in original packaging since they started in 1992, then I just buy the silver dime I need for the Dansco). So they arrived today, 2 silver proof sets and a mint set. Here's what I found:
The bonus pennies were all outside of their respective envelopes and in the bottom of the box (had trouble finding the last one as it was under the cardboard flap of the box and almost escaped).
So I found all the appropriate pieces of my order, time to open the sets and start filling albums. Unfortunately, the cents in both silver proof sets were completely hazy (now I understand this can happen over time, but I really don't want the hazy cent on a brand new set!).
Then I open the mint set, the Denver coins are fine, but then on the Philly page, the dime is missing. Apparently it fell down in the packaging, but again, I don't want to open the set to find if my dime is damaged! Imagine if I just wanted to have the set to display it, that would be awkward.
So bottom line I have to return everything in my order. At least they are replacing it all for me and sending a return label, but I really just wish I could get what I ordered right the first time. Is anyone else noting issues like this?
