    Just got my shipment of coins, geez, the finish on the proofs is pretty amazing now.
    Absolutely flawless, the whole lot of them, same can be said for all the products they're releasing at the moment.

    I can't forgive the MM for how they began but it seems like the SBSS series has been yanked from them prematurely. Keep in mind I'm no fan of Duane or the mint but if you had to judge them solely on the quality of their product it is now properly professional.
    It's taken them 7 months but I'm finally happy.

    free reign, freedom girl proofs, slave queen proofs.
    Also some freedom girl and slave queen bullion.

    I'm going to order the new rounds this week after being impressed with what I got today. It's pretty evident they're using a Ball Burnishing Machine now, I really don't think they were bothering a few months ago.

    Anyone game enough to buy that 5oz round off them?
    Good chunk of change but would hate to miss out on one...

    Just trying to figure out if they're popular or not.
    I'm 50-50 atm...

    I have a few orders. To make the set you will need one.

    Very expensive. Lot of birthday presents in this one :)

    I like their stuff but I just am having a tough time getting over all the issues. I am concerned this will affect resale since many buyers are salty after bad experiences.

    With that being said I appreciate Roman bringing us this information. I myself own some of their stuff and my rounds are well done with only minor scuffs close to the rim on the bu's the proofs are excellent quality from what little stuff I have.

    I will go and pick up a few items and if spot goes down more I will try and buy tubes just because they are so cool.

    I should have access to a great camera on Sunday so pictures to come.

    On a side note I just realized Bullionbourse is no longer selling SBSS bullion? :(

    SBSS is now out of the bullion business.

    Well I received a sentinel the other day and it is so sexy, it's from the mulligan mint I believe which also did all the sbss stuff, wouldn't mind seeing what else they churn out

    I just saw the design and that is the latest SSSB hotness? No where near the Slave Queen, AG-47 or Freedom Girl - I'll pass thanks.

    I don't mind it, but they changed the shield which I guess I'll have to wait and see in person before I know if I like it as much as the original or not

    I suppose that many will like this coin and be quite happy with it. Can't get behind the politics and message of the thing so I will pass.

    they just waant to make the profits, not the message..

    if they focus on sending the message, they can sell much more.

    the message got lost and did not reach rawdoglet in his new home :lol:
