placed order yesterday. Canceled this morning.

I still have one president on back order from December. I wonder if having an open order in the system, keeps me more on their Radar?

i am really confused this week i got an email stating that my order was backordered until Feb. i am thinking, great, will be away anyway, so now i don't need to worry. however today i rec'd my order. why bother to tell me when it will ship if they are not sticking to the schedule. just glad i was home to receive it. LOL not really complaining, just an observation.

The stripper's lobby would never allow this.

Of course they would -- they'd be promoting $2 bills, though.

bank refusing coin deposit

Not sure if this has been reported yet, not following this thread here on FT. There is a post on FW about a bank that refused to take OPs coin deposits. Worse, they closed his accounts and asked that he collect his current balance in coins. Not sure how much of this is true, just thought I'd mention this as an FYI.

I think I saw the bank name somewhere in that thread - Bank of the West.

Please consult with your local financial institutions to acquire Presidential $1 Coins for your use. We hope you will also continue to check our website for updates. Please also contact us if you are interested in Bulk purchasing of Presidential or Native American $1 coins minimum 140,000."

So, they don't have enough inventory to sell me $10,000 BUT they sure have enough to sell me $140,000???

Must be the 'new' math the Mint is using............


At least you got a response... I have not received one to either of the emails I sent.
