    The most beautiful thing I’ve ever owned!!

    So here’s an update, the mint said that it’s some sort of polishing compound left over from polishing the dye. They sent me a prepaid shipping label and I mailed the coin to the mint. They’re going to give me a new one and melt mine down. They said that even though there’s only 100 of them they make a few more for things like this and then after a few years melt them down so there is only 100 in existence. They’re simply going to pull my COA and this new coin will become that number. I’ll let you guys know how the exchange goes.

    Also the strange thing is it’s in a capsule that’s in a box that’s in an airtight plastic case! The plastic case has only been opened maybe 4-5 times and the wooden box has been taken out of the box twice. The coin obviously has never been removed from the capsule so I don’t know how this has happened.

    Alright guys I’m reviving this thread from almost a year ago because I don’t know what to do. I’m starting to get red spots on my coin!! They’re forming in the deep grooves. I contacted my account manager at the Royal Canadian Mint and he’s going to show them to some production people for advice but what should I do?

    It’s made by the Royal Canadian Mint, not some obscure company

    So specifically you guys don’t like the size and don’t like that it’s not the queen on it?

    Royal Mail stock?

    I wonder if it’s similar to here in the US. The post office when I was young would hire old military veterans. They were always very professional and their uniforms were always complete and pressed. Now it seems they hire the dregs of society to keep them off welfare. Most times I see them they either have no uniform on or just a wrinkled dirty shirt from their uniform and the job performance matches their look!

    Thanks! For the price I’m very happy with how it turned out. Also something to think about here is the utilities are very low in Nebraska at least but property taxes are very high. That’s the main reason I bought a cheap small house, to avoid high property taxes. Something to consider and look into in North Dakota or anywhere you’re considering retirement. In this small house all of my utilities average about $200 per month and my taxes are fairly low because it’s small.

    Yes definitely houses could be had for around 15-20 but they’ll either be in a very remote area or need major structural fixes. The prices I have were for in a small city and with no real structural problems

    Some pics of western nebraska and the last one is the Wyoming capital building in Cheyenne. Don't mean to hijack thread it's just that wyoming, nebraska, south dakota and north dakota are very similar. Lots of room to stretch out!

    I'm sure they do, I think that's going to be a big problem for lots of older large companies going forward in the near future. Thanks for all the info guys! I'm still kicking around the idea of buying. I just can't imagine a world without letters but maybe the world's changing and I'm getting to old lol

    North Dakota

    I know you're asking Roy about North Dakota but I can tell you western Nebraska is amazingly inexpensive. Houses that need to be fixed up in small towns run anywhere from $30,000 to $80,000. I bought a small house in the middle of my small town right across from a large park for $49,500 and put around $50,000 into making it exactly the way I wanted it but you wouldn't have to spend near that much to redo a house, I'm just very picky. I rewired and re plumbed the whole house, all new windows, new siding, new HVAC, new hot water heater and all new kitchen and bathroom as well as painting everything and sanded and refinished the wood floors. I also put a large fire pit and courtyard in the back along with a large deck. So if north dakota is similar in price to my area you could have a perfect house for less than $100,000 if you're smart about how you do it.
