I don't like these "no glue" boxes, but I also dislike the other extreme; those boxes that seem super-glued.
My last boxes had paper tape keeping each $250 pack shut. I had to use a box knife on 'em.

The glue is the reason for the backorder status. The mint knows it's a problem (or PBGS does) and is working in the fix.

You get foam peanuts? I get brown paper all stuffed in the empty spots.

no, i get the same brown paper in the box. i was just thinking about how the shipping company could possibly keep loose coins from making noise. yeah funny sounding in my head does not equal funny in a forum post.

Taxes

Well, I've been buying some coins, and really trying to put them into circulation by using them for transactions at places that don't take cards. The rest, I'm depositing at my local community bank (but not immediately), which has not objected, and just accepts the rolls without counting. But then I got to thinking about taxes, and sure enough I see that there are numerous FTs ahead of me. I see the points about property taxes, but for those of us that have to pay estimated taxes quarterly, what experience have others had with their state and the IRS?

This is only my 2nd order, but the first were next day and UPS, not FEDEX.

Would not be worried. Shipments of only 1 box are shipped ground.

What a DISASTER this new policy has been.

All my orders have been getting canceled even though I have exemptions on the ordering limits.

I'm actually out of coins as of yesterday at the car washes.

The Federal Government cant even process and ship coins out properly and they want to run health care? Sigh.

Well, the US Federal Government does a pretty good job of (for example) running the postal service, defending the country, and organizing our airspace. I think shipping coins properly to a (small?) businessperson is probably low on the totem pole.

The US Mint making mistakes on your exemptions is small potatoes compared to other things, from my perspective. I'm sure it can be dealt with.
