Are they overstating these things?? I find it hard to believe that something actually has a mintage of 10,000 physical medals, for example -- when I can't even find the thing! And this would be for *recently*-issued medals, like within the past 1 to 3 years. Out of all the sellers out there, nobody ever has it, and nobody can ever find it. Common sense would dictate that if they actually existed in these numbers, surely somebody at some point would be able to track one down, especially if they knew ahead of time that a buyer would be willing to pay up for it. I mean, who doesn't want to make a few extra easy $$?? Where is the supply? I noticed something else: When the electronic market for this stuff came online, that's when I started noticing the mintages oftentimes jumping 10-fold. For something that would probably usually have a mintage of "only" 3,000... Suddenly now has a mintage of *30,000*! Do those extra 27,000 medals actually exist in a physical form? Something tells me "no." Perhaps somebody with some concrete knowledge can tell me what's going on here with this stuff these days. Because I'm not believing many of these mintages. Heck, it was bad enough a couple years ago when they were simply stating the max mintage -- when in reality, they probably weren't actually minting the full run of a couple thousand or whatever. But these days, it just seems like it became even way more silly. And believe me, I'm not taking a dig at this stuff. I still love it. But I'm genuinely curious, because what's printed on the COA in terms of mintages, isn't being reflected in physical everyday reality.
