Don't mind if some of the flips have cracks either, so please ship them out if you have not done so already... looking forward to seeing these in hand.  Thanks.

So far, the orders are all sorted, and about half of them have been sent out.  They have been sent in no particular order, and I hope to have them all sent by the end of next week week.  I will work on the rest of them this weekend and through Christmas, but I don't think I will have time to get all of them out before Christmas.

I plan to make a list with registered tracking numbers once everything is shipped.  That said, for those who received tracking numbers, how did you get them? The only thing I gave them at the post office was the shipping address.

I use "Informed Delivery® by USPS®"

This way I know what's on the way and know if it's worth a trip to the Post office.

Ah !  Your post gave me the clue.  I was wondering why I was receiving a USPS Registered item from Sylvania.  MattTheRiley post made the light bulb glow.  That's what the Informed Delivery notice was for !  WOOT !!!

I see an estimated Monday delivery.  But I have seen PO Trucks out on Sunday here so I may get it sooner.

Love Ya Informed Delivery !  And, of course, SirSta¢ksALot, for all you do.

Any pictures of the Copper colored and the Brass antiqued?  My package arrived in Seattle, 1 more big city to go Anchorage.  Then a 60 mile flight south and I will have the package.  Then I can post a few picture.  It’s making good time, quite surprisingly!   

I got a package stuck in New York for 10 days purchased from a dealer there.  I figure maybe 2 nd week in 2019 I might get it.  One of a kind tokens,  not expensive but old.

Ohhh man mine is in transite 2.5 days now to go 60 miles.  I have the girls at the post office alerted to have  it plucked up, so I can personally pick it up.  Hope it’s not one of those agonizing 10 day wait on a misplaced box.  We got some stick hands in the Big City of Anchorage.  Good thing it’s REGISTERED!  Let see some pics especially the Colored Coppers Matt.   High resolution please. ;D

I prefer to get mine graded & slabbed (ANACS). Especially nice for authentication, protection, and storage.

But ANACS can't slab 50mm Rounds.

So I was glad to discover that the 3oz medal fits perfectly in this airtite:


I cut the black ring so the medal's edge inscription is viewable. (No need to cut 2 pieces as pictured; these are leftovers from other capsules.)

Available in various quantities from the usual vendors, like this: https://www.amazon.com/Air-tite-Y-50mm-Capsules-Military-Challenge/dp/B00NRBFZ18/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1545858456&sr=8-2&keywords=Air-tite+Y-50mm+Black+Ring+Coin+Holder+Capsules

Looks like I'll be getting my 2018 medals sometime in 2019.  Sort of a bummer when others are already selling theirs on eBay.

Anyways, the pics posted by those who have received their medals look pretty cool.

Thank you Dan for taking the time to make these coin's.

Thank you for everyone's patience with the medals.  Thre has been quite a bit more work this year to get these medals out since the amount of members ordering has grown every year.  I am still working on them every chance I have a few extra minutes to get them done.   I will catch up on PMs, a tracking number list, and the treasury spreadsheet as soon as I can.

Thanks Jim. I really appreciate it! The medals are perfect and you're doing a great job sending them out. The medals are super protected when they arrive.

Since you say it's taking up more time, I was also wondering if shipping could be made more efficient in any area. For his Moonlight Mint pieces, Dan sends out a lot of pieces in the flat packs with corrugated safety mailers and I'm wondering if it would be faster since it seems like they would be faster to seal and pack? I wonder if there are other areas that could be streamlined too.

Just trying to help :)

Only problem I had was the packing.......Australian Customs thought that since there was so much packing it was worth more than the medals and wanted to charge me import duty on packing only.
