Funny letter from SEGS!!

7 posts in this topic

How dare they misspell my name and associate me with being the PMM by placing my name on the holder.


Dear Mr McNaulty:


We reqret that we will not label your coins "The Minuteman" due to FTC

and other restrictions. We would be glad to put your name on the label, etc.

> Hello,

> I have several 2000 S silver proof Massachusetts minuteman errors. The error is a die crack. If I sent the coin in for grading would you name it "The Minute Man" on the slab for me? It is a very famous coin already, and has been in Numismatic News several times.I can send the articles in along with the coins to show it is authentic.Many people have given it this unique name.


> Thanks,

Email them back and suggest that you'll sign a waiver saying you are now aware of the regulations, you don't give a [!@#%^&^], you still want them to do it anyway, and you're sending it back to have it done. Well, at least it would be fun to respond to them like that IMO.

You obviously need a more clever meaning to this die crack error. Since the minuteman dates back to the Revolutionary war of 1775, the common phrased used during that time when someone had to pee was possibly called "passing water". So perhaps SEGS would settle for The PA$$ING MINUTEMAN designation or possibly The PIDDLING MINUTEMAN would work. And lastly, a more interesting title could be The TRIFLE MINUTEMAN!


Good luck, keep trying, you just might succeed, whatever they end up calling it. confused-smiley-013.gif
