I once had a silver dollar shipped loose in a
regular white envelope, no wrapping or anything.

Ive had a few coins shipped similar. Luckily they were only junk silver anyway but still frustrating.
I've only been collecting for a couple years (2017). Favorite Coin's are Standing Liberty quarters, Working on my type set: "knowledge is power" -Thomas Jefferson | Coffee, Corvettes, Coins & the CCF what could be better?

Kerry, can you tell us the seller's ID? I'd prefer to avoid them in the future.

I had a roll of halves shipped on time and the seller just left them in the tube with maybe one piece of tape over the lid. It was one of those cheap round clear plastic tubes where the lid doesn't even have a groove where it screws on at all. They shipped that with either no other padding or very little in a flat rate box. When it got here, I pulled it out of the mailbox and just heard them all jingling in there and thought, "you've got to be kidding me".

That and just taping raw coins to a piece of paper really just blows my mind. I'm also not a fan of those who use so much tape that they fully cover every square inch of the envelope with multiple layers of tape so that you have to be extremely careful in cutting it open that you don't damage anything. Or shipping bills between two pieces of cardboard that have been inexplicably cut to the exact size of the bill and taped around all four sides so that it's super difficult to get it out without damaging the bill. I try to assume that maybe these sellers just aren't collectors and try to politely give them some better alternatives that don't cost anything extra or take any longer to do. Some people just don't get it though.

Wow - very poorly done. This is worthy of negative feedback.
