The mint has started taking notice of orders more closely and is shutting down accounts. YMMV.

As long as you are adhering to the 10 day waiting period you should be ok.

Maybe it has to do with the tracking devices they have been putting in the rolls!

Are there black helicopers involved?

Anyways, my latest order arrived in record time.

So I still had 3 boxes left over from the previous order, and I've generally been depositing (not immediately) the excess at a great community bank, but this time I decided to make a deposit into my Bank of America account. I know a fair amount about banking, but I was a bit surprised that the teller didn't even open the boxes. She just sealed them in a plastic bag for shipment to the cash vault ~100 miles away. She gave me a receipt, but it is subject to verification. It was all so matter of fact that I suspect I may not be the first person to make such a deposit in our small town.

I've been going to the BOA here in BOS and I just hand them the boxes they are shippped in, I do open them though to double check myself before they are sent away.

I guess if the box that it comes in weighs +19lbs I really shouldn't have to worry.

Moron UPS driver just left $4,000 sitting on my doorstep with no signature.

Anyone have a good phone # for UPS so that I can call and complain and hammer it into their heads to never do this again or should I just use the general customer service line?

eBay was never that good of a deal, not even in the heyday of Bing.

Why bother with the massive coin weights when $2 bills and bullion were in abundance and not as heavily marked up by the churners? The opportunity cost of the dollar coins was other, more profitable forms of Bing churn.

1-800-PICK-UPS is the only number you'd get routed through ... but make sure you ask for the warehouse to place a specific complaint there.
