So probably a packaging issue like the Innovation proof. It most likely will be back as backordered


Is this something new or has this always been an issue with the mint? I haven't been in this hobby very long. The AI dollars were the first ones I've ever seen go on back order and now this set.

You may be right.

I do not know, but I am now a little worried about a smooth Apollo release.

Perhaps some commercial dealers were buying in huge quantities to they can be first to telemarket them and flooded the mint with sales.

You can pretty much bank on it that HSN is going to be selling a bunch of these

May have created another market for those into the ER/FR labels with this set as well.

Has to be something more than just trying to calm the mass orders. Otherwise they wouldn't be on back order til April.

I am pretty sure the telemarketers gobbled them up and they can say "so rare the mint sold out in x hours and now backordered".

Yup....packaging...like the Innovation proof. There will be plenty of both available eventually

Sounds like a new trend developing...so maybe a new label? "First Packaging"?

First week's reported sales were 17,452 vs 19,269 for all of 2018 (the Mint essentially quit selling the 2018 sets in June 2018).

The initial sales were more than double of last year's. So, it looks like the Mint just underestimated the initial demand.
