I saw a pending charge that disappeared the next day, but now it's back again.

What worries me is that is still shows as available. Most other German dealers are either sold out or jacked up the prices, and mdm aren't exactly unknown in Germany. I think someone is asleep at mdm and they will cancel a lot of orders.
Looks strange to me, too, that MDM still has 99+ available.

Maybe it is time to call.

You do speak German, right?

lol.

I won't waste my time with them. A phone call won't solve any problems - they will either cancel or honor my order which is beyond my influence. They obviously have a few muppets working for them.
I always remember a line from "A Bit of Fry and Laurie" - "Ask a stupid person and you'll get a stupid answer". ;)

I expect the ones from Silvertowne to sell out pretty quickly. Their price is quite close to issue price (compared to other Moneygrabbers :razz :)

Just got the email as well.

I didn't buy the Temple of Heaven coin so I'm not really sure of the 3D minting technology. Too bad I'm not interested in the subject matter, otherwise I think this coin will be pretty cool to own.

Yes, kilo silver coins are a nightmare to sell again. I don't know one numismatic kilo silver coin that increased in value. Hence I eventually said "no" to this one. I'd love to see a 5 or 10oz coin though.

It seems RCM changed their plans because of poor sales. The "Forests of Canada" series was initially offered as an 8-coin sub, now they finished at 4. MDAMDA still has the listing for the 8-coin box, but the RCM now updated it to 4. Sad, really... lol

The Brits love their queen. Despite selling the GBP20 for face value on their website, the RM managed to sell 100 on eBay for GBP23 within one day.

I managed to make 3 AMAZING FINDS all this month:

1) Found a 2005P Non-magnetic Penny in a 2005 Oh Canada set.
I got it graded by ICCS and it graded MS-67. From what I am told, there are less than 10 graded as MS-67 by ICCS and MS-67 is the best grade given by ICCS so far. Any offers? :D It will likely go for thousands.

2) Found 3 tubes of the Uncut Stamp Fabric Flag Sheet tubes at CP.
If anyone is interested,
Sealed Tubes $210
Opened Tubes $200

3) At the same post office as #2, I found the ultra rare First Day Covers of the Unesco Stamp Errors. While the stamp booklets and souvenir sheets have been fairly common on eBay, these FDCs have been fairly rarer.
I am selling for $330 on eBay @ http://www.ebay.ca/itm/281790887493
If purchased off eBay and picked up in Markham, it can be yours for $300.
