  • Condition Condition Condition

    The Black Box S-Mint set received was in the worst condition, sleeves coming apart when opened, plastic cover missing on one set, lens cover over coins broken and previous owners notes inside sleeve. It's apparent no one checked the sets before shipping. Returned - Shame on HSN on letting a set leaving in this CONDITION!

    Received as a returned item. Black boxes not worth the cardboard it's made of. One had a $14.95 price tag on it. Sent back asap and will not 'invest' any more of my money into collecting these coin sets.
