Oh My!

I have not received mine yet. I just ordered it yesterday with the American Legion dollar and medal set. I will be watching.

I put the actual coins in an airtight tin and doused the cardboard packaging with most of the ants in RAID. I'd like to return the whole god-awful mess back to the United States Mint but I'm afraid they'd consider it an act of terrorism.

Does anybody do certifications for insect infested varieties? I hope they're rare but I fear not. ANACS perhaps? AIACS? American Entomology Society?

- About two score and seven+ years ago, I began a Lincoln cent collection. I have all, most in AU or better & am upgrading to MS as possible.
- I collect all coins minted 1809, 1859, 1909, 1959, and 2009. Lincoln and C.Darwin were both born in 1809. The latter published his "On the Origin of Species.." in 1859, the Lincoln cent debuted in 1909, and after that it just seemed like a good way to show the evolution of US coinage. Most non-nums to whom I've shown these react with the phrase, "I had no idea!" That alone shows their worth.
- I've completed MS sets of Jeffersons & MS specimens of other 5 nickels; Franklins done. Roosies mostly done. I enjoy hunting for WLH and "winged liberty" dimes.
-- If I left my early Washington quarter book at one of y'alls house, please ring me up.

Mine are in the mailbox right now... just have to go pick them up and hopefully they will be ant-free.

What a horror story.

No extraneous inclusions in my package, ants or otherwise. Just two sets of uncirculated and 2 good-looking W cents.

Wow that's scary I can only imagine the terror of opening coins and finding a live ant colony. I wonder what's next? Nests of angry hornets in ASE monster boxes?

I'll certainly never find out about that.

If this wasn't so sad it would be comical.
