So the boobs from HSN lied about 2009 being the last year for satin mint sets. This from the mint:

The 2010 Mint Set features double the coins (28), as it includes both Philadelphia and Denver uncirculated versions.

"The United States Mint Uncirculated Coin Set includes two folders, each containing 14 coins from the United States Mint facilities at Denver and Philadelphia," describes the Mint. "The coins are struck on special presses using greater force than circulating coins, producing a sharp, intricately detailed image. The satin-finish coins are displayed in a folder that includes a Certificate of Authenticity."

They were selling 5 UNC S mint Morgans the other night. These were the "Pure Silver" variety. These were right after the "Pure 22k" GAE's.

Morans.

HSN is entertaining and good for a laugh now & then but you can't believe any figures they throw out. I'm amazed that people buy their stuff at the prices they charge. I pity them when they go to sell their collections.

Those guys are knuckleheads and good for a laugh every once in awhile, I feel sorry for the people that actually buy stuff from them.

Dude, you cracked me up with that one!

Nah, you don't want me steppin' in on this!

Although I had some initial thoughts when I first saw this, I just sit on the sidelines smoking a cigarette and watch the drama unfold. [smoking smiley]

But I will say this, I find Mr. Teeth entertaining, and he does know a lot of stuff. But you have to remember, he (and they) are in the business to move product. He follows in a long line of salesmen that have perfected the art of selling you stuff you never knew that you really needed. Or wanted.

And he's always got some crazy sidekick to provide the comedy relief. Except when it's some hot chick and then I forget what he's hawkin'!

And then I have to remember, whenever I watch the show, to turn down the brightness on my boob tube so his teeth don't blind me. Except when that hot chick's on there and then turn the brightness up and just deal with it!

That being said, I haven't seen the show where this is mentioned, but hey, he's human (at least I think so) and can make a mistake.

Nonetheless, (here it comes...)

they offer a wide range of products to a mass market. They sit on millions of dollars in inventory and if you buy something you know where it came from, and it's so easy to send it back and you get your dough back without any hassle. How many dealers have a thousand or so 2010 ASE's slabbed by ANACS in MS70 just sittin' in the back room? You gotta pay for that. You don't have to go anywhere, you just click a few buttons (you and a ton of other people) and the next thing you know your MS70 is in your mailbox.

BUT, I learned my lesson with these guys and those shows a long time ago. You can find this stuff out there from equally reliable sources at much better prices, and it still only takes a few clicks for something to show up in your mailbox.

I've heard Mr. Teeth make booboos before. When you talk that fast with all them big white teeth in your head you're bound to stumble over those huge pearly whites every once in a while.

Remember, once you get past the sales pitch he does impart some interesting and useful information. He always seems to neglect, though, to tell you then he's gonna smile so you can throw yer shades on real quick!

I HATE Satin Finish coins! Stupid mint.

I love watching both the collectible coin and collectible knife shows. I would not pay them one red cent of my own money, but they do crack me up.

I don't watch HSN but my bet still is that they never claimed 2009 would be the last year for the satin finish. My bet is they said something like "These are the last satin finish US mint set." or "These are the last satin finish coins produced by the US Mint." Or maybe "These 2009 sets will be the last satin finish sets made by the US Mint." All of these statements would be true, but none of them say that the Mint would not make more satin finish mint sets in the future. The most misleading would be the last statement, but it only refers to 2009 sets and that there wouldn't be any other 2009 satin finish sets made.

When you think they have made such a sweeping claim as what this one was supposed to be, it is very important to find out EXACTLY what they said word for word. These people are VERY good at saying one thing and getting people to infer they are saying something else. Something that will encourage them to buy. All three of the statements I made earlier could easily be taken to be a statement that the 2010 sets would not be satin finish, but none of them do.

Ah, those pitiful sales techniques. When reading true false questions on a test, there are rules. Always, never and other "absolute" statement questions are almost always false. False claims are no different. If you hear "the last one- never again- not sold in stores".....put them on the same shelf space with Dwight Yoakam's CD "Last Chance for a Thousand Years". Which is really good, BTW. For Dwight. Is HSN still operational? Go figure.

We have so many customers come in selling their garbage from HSN (gold plated, "special" slabbed coins, etc.) it is depressing. People are upset, it makes us look like we aren't being fair because we aren't paying NEAR what they paid, and everyone loses. Except HSN. I always tell people: Don't buy coins/bullion from any company you can't sell back to!!
