  1. I may have an extra of a couple of them, as two friends of mine each ordered with the idea that if one of us missed out the others could make up for it. As it stands I know I have no extra CC, but might have one extra of the D and O.
  2. Hello @dena I still have not been able to log into the boards from Chrome/Duckduckgo so I am wondering if there is something that I can do to fix that or if it's something on NGC's end. I am currently using MS Edge to access, but that is no ideal. On Chrome, the boards just flash then I get the following message: 403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked. We can't connect to the server for this app or website at this time. There might be too much traffic or a configuration error. Try again later, or contact the app or website owner.If you provide content to customers through CloudFront, you can find steps to troubleshoot and help prevent this error by reviewing the CloudFront documentation.

  3. Where is the place to post these topics to the moderators? I couldn't find anything close on the list of board topics.
  4. That same thing happens to me with Chrome, but when I go back to the boards page, it flashes a bunch of times and then I get the 403 error. Working from Edge now, but I don't like Edge.
  5. I've noticed since Tuesday, I can't log on using google chrome but can through Microsoft Edge. I get the following error: 403 ERROR The request could not be satisfied. Request blocked.

  6. Well according to the Constitution, Congress has the power to coin money and regulate the value thereof, so it would be in their purview. But that means Congress would still need to pass it, and if they can't pass legislation to raise the debt ceiling, why would they pass legislation to mint a trillion-dollar coin? On another note, minting a trillion-dollar coin would lay bare to the world, the worthlessness of the dollar, similar to the $100 Trillion Zimbabwe bill I have in a drawer somewhere...
  7. I don't think this has been a widespread issue on the numismatic versions (i.e. proofs, burnished, etc.) but primarily on the bullion versions which are commonly stored in tubes etc. I know I have bought rolls in the past and on occasion milk spots have developed, while I've never seen them on any of the proofs or other collector versions purchased from the mint.
  8. I wasn't aware I was missing this one, but I guess it completes my peso collection!
  9. Agreed, it seemed like each time got worse after the second Morgan group, which I think was the smoothest experience of the dysfunctional bunch...
  10. So yesterday like many others I went to the mint website at noon to hopefully order one set of the reverse proof silver eagles for my collection. The website was way more disjointed than the past few times with the Morgan dollar redos, but perhaps that was the intention. I had to keep reloading, keep checking out and filling in my information, all told, it took me about 35 minutes and still had no confirmation from the mint website, but I got an alert that my credit card was charged and sure enough I received a confirmation e-mail while the website was still giving me error messages. The same thing happened to a friend of mine, and apparently he got no e-mail, but tried to order later and it said he couldn't because the limit was one coin, so apparently he got one already. Then another friend ordered (at least he thinks he got one) but he placed an order an hour or two after they went on sale since they still showed they were available. So, perhaps the mint making their website more dysfunctional enabled more regular collectors to actually order this limited mintage set (it was 125k, so perhaps not too limited).
  11. Often when I'm walking by a window and catch a glimpse of my genuflection, I'm reminded of the vexing of the verbose...
  12. Yes, this one was a challenge, I believe it's an O-106a, as it has the die cracks through the date and stars on the obverse and up through UNITES STA on the reverse. The die cracks are not as fully formed, so this might be earlier in the later die state (I'm not sure that sentence makes any sense, but I'll go with it).
  13. I have no expertise in copper, but would be fascinated to see what grades come back from whoever you submit to.
  14. My state doesn't have a sales tax on coins/bullion any more, but I admit that was a factor in the timing of my decision to set up a few times. I waited until after the repeal of the sales tax as I didn't want to deal with it and only brought non-taxable things to sell (they still charge tax on albums, supplies, etc.).
