+Cornerstone4 Posted March 16, 2006 Share Posted March 16, 2006 Back to one of the original topics... It's time for me to eat some humble pie! I offer my apologies to the gang at "The Club". I received my coin that I traded for today. Although I can't get a nice crisp picture of the coin the way the proof came out, I can get the right reflection off of the coin to make the edges and lettering appear bronze. So, my insinuation that there is no way the actual coin has the same finish was in error, and I aplogize for adding any fuel to the fire. I must also say that the coin has a very hefty feel to it, and for whatever reason, that always makes me feel better! The manufacturer seems to have a problem with flashing in their process, and it appears they took a wire wheel, or some type of sander to the back side of the coin. The edge is very rough, and the black nickel finish really highlights it. Last, they definately have a cleanliness issue in their paint department. There are a LOT of inclusions in the enamel finish on both sides of the coin. (I actually pulled a hair off of one side...DNA testing will be done to see if it is animal or human!) So, while I do see some issues that need to be addressed, please accept my aplogies for jumping to the wrong conclusion. Quote Link to comment
