Wow, only 75,000 of this set above us minted for $26.95, And just about everybody went banana’s to pay for the 225th Ann, Enhanced Unc. ”clad” Set, that really did not mint as good as they should have, with a mintage of 225,000 for $29.95. 75,000 minted for $26.95 or 225,000 minted for $29.95. Hey! I*m American* threw & threw, but Canada is as solid* as they come, thank God. Wake UP *AMERICA* where a few steps behind in some ”categories”, what ever happened to good old *yankee ingenuity*.

Joe Brown –

Amen brother! I LOVE the USA, but I lived in Japan for 3 years & Germany for 3 years & they have us beat in many categories. The U.S. Mint uses mostly German coinage presses for example! (Plus machines from Switzerland & The Netherlands too !). Almost nothing at the U.S. Mint is ” U.S.A.” except the employees.. Ouch! LOL

Seth Riesling – that’s a great experience you lived in two very different cultures of the world*, but they did have one thing in common and they had to be defeated or gods*+* world would have been destroy’d, i know your father has dedicated his career to serving our *country, Thank You, i*m sure you were a help to your Dad being there for him, so he could serve the *USA*, those two country’s you lived in are ””booming”” right now, and they are doing it the right way this time. Both country’s are very ”high tec” in so many categories than our *US* they been around oh so so much longer with a long long history before we became a *country*. Wake Up America, we have so much more to learn, Lets Get Back To Where We Once Came From, *Get It Back *USA* & don’t look back. Thank*s Dad*+*.

Can’t beat that good old German machining; it’s universally incomparable.
