It assumes the payment happens immediately as soon as the order is generated, but in my case, I was delayed 5 hours.

Also, another thought: I would love to get regular updates from you about the availability of coins like in the quoted text above. Do you have a Casascius-coins twitter feed, FB page, or email list I could join to get notified of deals, offers, limited availability, new stock, etc? You don't update the first page in this thread with up-to-date news, so I often have to look through pages to see if there have been any developments.

Cheers, and thanks again!

5 hours is never a problem.  I generally stop checking the address after several days.

I suppose the issue is I don't make a whole lot of announcements, but here's where I'd do it.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

Hey Mike, I'm curious how the Bitcoin Friday sale worked out for you! How many coins did you sell, and which ones?

Well, shipping is paid for by the buyer, so I could ship to the USA, but it might get expensive. I've had a quick look, and it seems to be at least Ƀ3 for just the shipping, and probably more. If you're still interested I could check more closely. Send me a PM in that case and we can have a look.

I sent a 1 oz silver coin to canada from germany for under BTC 0.5. Just sent it as a letter.

I hereby request:

hi-def photos of each side (reverse, obverse) of each of your products.
one picture of each your products in a "redeemed" state, so everyone can judge online if an item is "okay" or not.

This is extremely important because of possible forgeries.

I think a youtube video explaining in detail how to determine if the hologram sticker was re-attached using glue or something would be useful.

All you need to do is look earlier in this thread, or go to the site link in the first post and click where it says "high definition photos here".

If the pictures aren't to your liking, it will only cost net .25 BTC to order one and attempt to re-sticker your spent coin and take your own satisfactory pictures.



I obviously need a new camera, but the difference should be apparent.

Because others have taken so many high quality images, I would recommend the following: Google "Casascius" and then click "Images" (along the edge of the screen).  This produces a rich selection of images throughout the internet that others have taken of my products.

The damage done to the hologram during peeling is so extensive that you should have no trouble determining which ones are peeled.  Peeling reveals a hexagon/honeycomb pattern in the material, and this pattern actually tears through the image layer, so it's very difficult to put one back together intact.

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper wallets instead.

A sufficiently skilled person could break SHA256 and ECDSA, so we similarly describe breaking these as "difficult", not "impossible", even though it's likely so difficult as to practically be impossible.  That said, it's probably easier to hack my sticker than it is to hack those algorithms, but still not trivial, especially for the average person.  Simply peeling carefully isn't going to cut it.

It seems like an easy hack would be to make a counterfeit sticker.

Physical world sucks when it comes to detecting counterfeited items.

i think for a merchant (ie casascius) it should be imperative to provide detaild imagery of the product he sells while adhering to a certain consistency (size of the coin, lighting etc etc) doing so.

I agree: for physical coins have a detailed sheet with all the data will reduce the risk of frauds

Complaints can be voiced by wallet.

I for one are very content with casascius all around.

that wallet comment is redonkulous, since there's just slightly under one competitor for these^^

also, it's not a complaint, really.
it's just that there's an abundance of items to buy and no visual cues to pair with the descriptions.

point taken that it's not a complaint.

You slightly misunderstood my redonkulous comment: "no competition" is exactly what I was getting at. You can't really expect anything from a monopolistic provider. In that light, casascius overdelivers greatly.

Don't get serious so quickly.

We are not complaining, simply suggesting how to improve the product significantly using minimum extra labor.

...and we do it for free.
