They sent you a blank planchet?

Huh... Never heard of the mint taking requests like that.

I know that I sent a letter out and I never got anything like this from them...

? I guess I'll ask them for a nice die cap. The penny isn't a proof, BTW, it's just a 2010-D.

Yes, it looks like the 2010 D could be an error too! Or is it just the plastic?

Dear US Treasury Department,

I would like you to know that I have been using your product for some time now. As a repeat customer I would like to ask for a favor. I would love to have a set of all of the coins ever minted in the US from each of the mints. I would prefer MS-66 or better, but MS-65s would be fine. I would be glad to pay any shipping cost.

I would also like a full set of US bills in each denomination ever printed. Please let me know the estimated date of delivery and I will promptly send you a check for shipping once the product arrives.

Please remember, I pay my taxes each year in US issued bills and coins.

As you know, the would has many countries to choose from and I would hate to have to change the currency and coins I've enjoyed for so many years. I'm sure it won't come to this as I know you will quickly fulfill this simple request.

Thanks,
Ben

P.S. Could you also send me any error coins that you may have waiting to be melted and re-struck?

P.P.S. Shipping details have been sent under separate cover.
Error and Variety Collector.
