Could take longer... I would check again on Sunday. My past couple orders have gone out to ship Sunday with a tracking # attached.

If your order says processing you should be fine.

your order will probably ship soon. I placed my order on 3/4. It's marked as shipped yesterday to be delivered today.

I have mine shipped to the office. Once every 10 days, a heavy package makes it way to my desk. Receptionist hasn't even asked.

"In stock and reserved" doesn't mean anything

What matters is "Order Status" and it'll say On Hold, In Process, or Shipped.

On hold can be a cpl days
In Process could be up to a week
Shipped is 1-2 days

It took 4 times before my order was processed. The first two times, it was cancelled because the billing address was not correct (for some reason the CC was listing the home address rather than the business address for billing). The third time I listed the correct address, but for some unexplainable reason it never went through. So over the phone they re-placed the order, and I finally received some pretty shiny coins yesterday.
Looking forward to doing it again

Address Change

This is my first post on FlyerTalk.
I've been reading this thread for a few weeks now and was awed by all of you coin hustlers and wanted to join in!^

To maximize my coin purchases, I changed the billing address on one of my cards to my mom's address.
Used this same card to order with my current address last week, but would any of you know if there will be problems if I start ordering $1,000 from two different cards using two different addresses, each being sent to the billing address of the cards?

Just curious if the mint is keen enough to see that the same credit number was linked to my address instead of my mom's.
Any comments, suggestions are appreciated!

Also, this may belong in a separate thread, but can any of you experts tell me what the deal is with the $2 bills? Tried searching the forums, but could not find anything.

Thanks in advance FlyerTalkers!

Uh, not intented is not the same as illegal or against the law.

Seems like a lot of the posts, especially from newbies, is a sad commentary on the state of our educational system's ability to develop cognitive skills in students.

Perfect demonstration of the lack of morals in today's society.

Would be out of character until they begin to reiisue 8 Reale coins.

I would call and inquire about it - that's the only way I ever got mine.
