Keep Calm & Stack On

Thanks for the great photos Mike, and so fast!

My noon, day of release order, will be delivered by FedEx Smartpost (aka, Dumbpost) next Thursday, 01 August, but hey, the shipping was free.

I have a feeling this may be another set like the rocket ship set. It has a unique finish like the way the Kennedy had the proof like finish.

This beautiful set is still available now, 5 days after issue. Crazy!

Picked up a few for the kids & NASA Fans,. These sets are nice, but really a show of ineptitude for the missing # years of sets. Nevertheless, A good value from you U S Mint!

Under 25,000 sold as of today

Many are arriving with note canted in holder,packaging error…

I guess I should be ready to send my sets back, after they arrive. Hopefully, I won’t have to.

My set came today, I am thinking of sending mine back the one-dollar note is not in its sleave properly. Looks bad.

I received a set and the bill is shifted about 3/8 inch inside the holder. No way to straighten it without damaging the packaging. I requested a return lable. Hope the next one is better, I really do like the set though.

Rex Hinkle

Opened my 2 sets today, both $1.00 bills were 3/4″ to 1″ off center and crooked, the bills are pinched between the plastic sleeve with no way to center them. Called customer service and I can return them for replacements, sounds like this is a bigger problem then they think and properly centered bill sets might be rare.

This set is currently on backorder status today Tuesday, August 6.

Has anyone received their return labels for these sets? I requested one almost a month ago and still have not received it.
