What happens if they all come back PR65? Do they send back the original case so you can put them back in? I'd rather hang on to the set. I bet by this time next year it will be at least $250.

The early release is a gimmick to be completely honest. Nice to have, but eh, not a biggy. So, I would open the box, pick 2 sets you think will grade high and send them on in.

Apparently the designation costs $18 PER COIN. Big gamble.

Well, after reading and re-reading this post and looking at the set on the US Mint site over and over I Ordered it.

It's the first coins I have actually 'Bought'.

Do you guy's know about how long it takes to receive orders from the Mint?

Dar... You should have the set in hand within 3 weeks. The only reason for delay would be if there are not enough sets remaining (rare, but it does happen).

@Dar, you should be able to log onto USMint.gov and track the status of your order. If you ordered through the 800 # and don't have a USMint.gov account, you can call the 800 # and ask about your order.

Unfortunately if I open the box then they would not be FS eligible. I think I'll just hang on to them for now.

Southern92: I remember reading that there was a minimum submission of 10 sets to get the LEPS label on the slabs ( PCGS). I can't find the post but I'm pretty sure it's correct.

10 sets! & correct me if I'm wrong, but the FS is $18 per coin? So 80 coins * $18 = $1440. & then the other associated fees. Just not sure how one would get their money back on that investment.

Yup, total of $34/coin to get graded AND FS designation...you can do that math (plus shipping both ways)

Last weeks sales- 47,745.
This week- 47,607.

That means that they had 138 more returns than sales. Hope something like that will make them take notice.


On the first strike, I'm sure that there are companies that have negotiated deals that let them get services at considerably lower rates than collectors or dealers.

Well, I received my Silver LE set and it was Horrible.

I had also ordered other sets at the same time. SP ATB sets as well as Presidential dollar PF sets and ATB PR sets with a few UNC sets.

All the Pf and Silver Pf sets items had to be sent back items had to be sent back, I mean every single one!

I had expected to see a bad case with the LE set but not only was the case damaged, but the coins themselves were horrible.

Now, I love errors BUT not on a Silver LE set or ANY proof set. They were terrible. Strike through's, Die gouges, wear on the coins, you name it. Fields were horrible and On the 2013 Silver ATB set there was actually some kind of mold blooming on the OBV of a few coins.

This was my FIRST time ordering from the U.S. Mint and I'm not sure if I will be doing it again.

Out of 15 items, 12 had to be returned.

I called, and they are going to replace the items. So now I wait. I even paid for the expedited shipping when I ordered originally. That money is Gone bye bye.

When I talked to the Rep on the phone she didn't sound surprised at all. Even said that they were having a rash of Quality issue returns.

I hope they get this right.

Will keep you updated.

Wow...that is an impressive list of returns. I have been ordering from the Mint for MANY years and have placed probably 500 orders and have returned maybe 3 partial orders....

My most recent is the newest 5 oz. ATB and all 3 are perfect...HOF silver coming today..we'll see

Well, I made a comment to the rep on the phone about that. She said that she and the 33 other reps there were getting more returns then usual. Especially for the 2013, 2014 sets.

I just hope they can fix it.

what Dar just talked about, I had some issues with my ATBs on this set,, I sure hope they dont re-pack the sets and send them back out again :/


I gave up on this set,, I was a real big fan of this series and I gave up on it for these issues. Its a shame too because I own the first issued set in this series.
