Emergency at the Mint!!

Well I saw the best. The original Emergency coins from Philadelphia  still selling. MS69. Hold on they have the EMERGENCY silver dollar from San Francisco for sale MS 69 and the ASE from West Point also MS 69 all for 199.00 I wonder were the next emergency will be.. They started with 240,000. And there still.selling them. It's the same eagle. The label is different.!! How.many emergency sets do you want. Even one from West Point. This is another game. You have a shortage of personnel don't make them. 240.000 is a drop in the bucket. They wanted to keep the money coming in. It's a shame. I hope Mr. Ryder you find a better job

They are the exact same coin.  In theory, the release of records from a freedom of information act request exposed that in one year, coins that were supposed to be made at West Point were made in Philly because of mint closures due to covid.  The first "Emergency Release" was for the above mentioned coins, they made only 240,000, and they were going to be worth "Blah, blah, you get the idea", well they initially went on sale for around $70.00 and these were NGC, PCGS 69's.  Now after 10 months those same 240,000 base coins are selling for $299.00, and there doesn't seem to be an end to the 240,000  To add insult to injury they have now found a bunch more ASE's minted in San Francisco instead of West Point, which are now "Emergency Issue".  I don't think these "S" ASEs are really Emergency Issue since they were minted before Covid hit.  Just another reason to sell a man made shortage for big bucks.  If you want one, just wait, I predict that in a year or two at the most they will be selling for "Normal" amounts.  I don't doubt that these coins were minted where they said they were, I think that the mints have always "Helped other mints" when more production was deemed to be needed.  Just now with the Freedom of Information we are getting these "Emergency Releases".

More reason why "buy the coin not the holder" applies. Crack it out and then try resubmitting it. Even with the holder it came in included they would return it either straight graded or body-bagged. My point? No difference than any other 2020 ASE.

The mint shot themselves in the foot.  Its what they do.

Bama, if you like it, keep it, if you want to turn a profit I would recommend selling soon.  I could be wrong, but I doubt it.  I'm keeping mine, it was only $70, I kinda like it as a side novelty.  But, I would never pay what they are asking now, and since 240,000 have been on a listed "Order now while supplies last" list for 10 months, I doubt that many are paying that high markup.
