Thanks Mike.
Another 421 of the unavailable product (rocketship) sold. Interesting. Will it be another product that the mint sells more of than was authorized?

General question:
The U.S.Mint has explained the uncirculated 5 oz. silver ATB quarter as having an uncirculated finish. (I’ve always considered uncirculated as a condition, not a finish. The 5 oz coin looks to have a matte finish, to me.)
Should I expect all U.S.Mint uncirculated designated products to have the same finish, such as the “uncirculated” U.S.Mint sets, or “uncirculated” SAE ?
The photo, in the 22nd May article for the 2019 uncirculated set, seems to show this annual set has having standard business strike coins.
