Well, it will go down next week after all the returns this week from hsn, coin vault MCM etc. So probably 125k next week. If they keep selling them this week at the mint. if not it will go down to like 115k. The return sets will be at least 30,000.

I am returning mine. The fields of the half have multiple spots – the field should be without blemish. Each of the coins (other than 25 cents) had a blemish. But I like the set and will gamble with getting a replacement.

I thought the Mint had a Quality Control Team to inspect these coins before sending these out to be shipped. I guess not. Sad. Really! sad

I returned the set and asked for a replacement. I do like the set. It does make me wonder if the MS69’s/MS70’s might be more hard found than expected from these sets. Maybe my expectations are too high?

Can anyone tell me anything about any PCGS graded sets of the 2018-S Silver Reverse Proof Sets. I’ve been looking for some the PF70s but I have not seen any of them at all. In any grade!

The best advice is, always specify next day delivery or expect everyone’s trash. I learned this the hard way on the gold mercury dime, ordered 10 standard shipping and by the time I got them 3 weeks later nothing but shiny garbage.
