Well that was crazy ...

I was logged into buy ..and got a phone call right before 12 ....
Ended up not getting any.

At least work got some because I told the 10 minutes before.
So I will get at least one from work.

I placed an order very easily and logged out...thought about it a bit and logged back in to place another order.. found the item.. added to bag and checked out without issues. Didn't log the times but it did take a bit to go back in.

Glad I didn't wait for the Mint's reminder email (at 12:07)

As I was walking into the DC Mint watched a guy wheeling out boxes of these after buying 500 sets.


I was told there was a 20 per person limit at the external stores and before 12 noon they handed out receipts for the number you wanted ...then released them at noon

Time to track the online market and see those BIG BOYS undercut each other.

Those missing out, just have to keep track of the mint website for temporary availability each early morning. With patient, you should also be able to get your set with eBay auction listing, it's just a waiting game.

Got the confirmation email but the Mint's Order History page still didn't show up yet......
I guess we are getting used to this "Instant Result" mentality?

I'm not getting one. I really wanted one but at 12:10pm it said it was unavailable. I refuse to bow down to flippers inflated prices.

I noticed a similar issue right after I placed my order. I first went to the Order History page and that took a while to load. Then my order finally showed up but when I clicked on the number, it just took me to the same Order History page. Weird...but at least I got a confirmation email.
Searching for some US modern coins (cents through dollars) via my want list.

Got the four sets I needed for the ATB Quarter albums I am completing. Started loading other items @ 8:58 PT, popped in the four sets right at 9:00, since my credit card info was already pre-populated, was out 10 seconds later. USM052018XX.

It stands to reason that if the 2017 Congratulations sets were gone in under 2 minutes, it would only take 6-7 minutes for three times that to go, presumably upwards of 90% went to flippers and the big guys. It was definitely a sleeper this time as there wasn't too much talk about it.
