I looked closer at my set and some coins seem to have smudges on the obverse and dark marks on the edges, but I suppose you can't really tell for sure unless you remove from the lens which I am not willing to do.

So, what does everyone else thing about the quality of their sets?

I hope they release the coins earlier next year. We still have 12 more years to complete the set.

The rotary phone is by far my favourite of the set.

Oh no!

I guess now you have to deal with customer service at the mint, post office, or both.

I have ordered this set as I did the previous year. I also purchase the reverse proof coins from the mint. The uncirculated coins I obtain from an e-Bay seller. This series may very well outlive me.
