...with milk spots.
I think RCM MintShield technology was supposed to really take effect in 2018 going forward...
Read some comments on milkspot videos but everybody keeps talking about pre-2018 stuffs being badly spotted
Hopefully RCM milk spot reputation improves.

In other news, Did you guys see this yesterday that Warner Bros. giving legal troubles to Toronto school over Harry Potter themed "Wizards Ball"

https://www.ctvnews.ca/entertainment/ha ... -1.4203256

I just ask because I was always wondering if Warner Bros would sue the pants off the Mint of Poland for that 2015 Niue Mysteries of Hogwarts coins that had no obvious licensing info anywhere on the coin or packaging, maybe then the coin would go red hot....but Nothing ever came of it...maybe its time to write a letter...lol

Quote from the mint's site:

"The Mint subjected Silver Maple Leaf bullion coins to a wide array of advanced scientific tests and diagnostic procedures, identifying the root causes of white spots and developing MINTSHIELD™, a unique production process, to reduce their occurrence. Invisible to the eye and having no impact on the coins' purity or composition, MINTSHIELD™ is proven to significantly reduce the appearance of white spots for years."

Reduce milk spot occurrence? What is RCM's definition of "significantly reduce?"

"for years?" How many years?

Look at what they've done to the silver proof coins lately. Many of them have turned yellow. New spray they're using?

I'll believe it when I see it...lol

Warning about World Ancient Coins. I bought a coin on their site, which was paid for in USD.

A week later they refunded me without explanation. Lost 3.5% on CC exchange fees. I'm not happy to pay for their mistake.

Perhaps it's a coincidence, but the coin I had bought has appreciated and is selling for a higher price now on eBay.

Blacklisted.

How many years did they test Mintshield?

Or are we the guinea pigs?

Another exciting coin from my favourite mint. I was a little late so paid above issue, but that's ok. The stunning detaii is amazing (the claws!).

Will it join the ranks of Poseidon and Trojan Horse over time? First in a series...maybe.

By the way, TCS is out of stock again (atm).
