Hi everyone. Well I received my long awaited Makrk Twain Proof coin yesterday. The first thing I did was read the C.O.A.. Did you know congress authorized this coin in 2012. That means the design was probably two year's earlier. There was controversial problem's over the C.O.A. and the release dates of the coin. Well in my case they should of taken longer. Upon looking at this beautiful coin I noticed a small sliver of metal above the head of MR.Twain. I followed it with my eye piece,and it went almost a third around the obverse of the coin. This is not unusual with the mint. Believe me over the year's they have had their problems. Don't get me wrong most of the work is spectacular. Their designs have to change. Doe's the coin to back? No. I'm not Abel to repackage the coin,go to the post office and send it back. It goes in the mint's mistake pile. I'm sure everyone's order's will be fine. I just want you to know they are far from perfect. They always will be because coin's are made by people and machine's,and both break down. Maybe next time. I want people to know just because it's from the mint,doesn't mean its ok. Check every order every coin weather it's a penny or a KENNEDY half. If it's not up to your expectations send it back don't wait. After all it's your money,and you deserve the best ,we demand the best! There is one thing you don't do. What's that don't stop ordering. It's our country,our mint.
