+rsfish1 Posted July 11, 2008 Share Posted July 11, 2008 I think this is the first topic I have ever started on here. It's more of a question for the people having coins made and a little bit of a venting session. There are several coins I have pre-ordered over 2 months ago that I still have not received. Of course with them being pre-sales, the money is out of our pocket all that time. And it's not just one company that these coins have been purchased from. All I keep hearing is troubles at the mint, delays at the mint, so on and so forth. I guess my question is what's going on? Are there new mints that people are trying and they are not living up to the standards? Are some of the old mints having quality control issues? Are there really mint issues or is this just an excuse being used? I know I have received coins from 2 different places that had serious issues and I had to send them back for refund/replacement. So I have seen some of the quality issues. But there just seem to be so many delays these days. Now for the venting part. To the people we buy coins from, please keep us informed about delays. Some companies are very good about this. Others I wait patiently on and then email because you never seem to get any updates. And still others you go out to their websites and they have a message saying "these are delayed and should be in shortly". But that same message is up for weeks at a time and their is no date stamp when they put the message up. It would be nice to get more status updates. I would rather hear "there are no new updates or ETA" then to hear silence. Quote Link to comment
