Here's a bit of trivia:

At the current BTC price, the 100 BTC Casascius Gold-Plated Savings Bar is worth more than double its weight in gold!

Here's a bit of insanity: There's an auction on ebay of a Casascius 1 BTC series 1. It's still 2 days to go and it's at $1,425 !!!

If this goes just a notch higher, then a series 1 Casascius "is worth" as much as a 1 oz gold coin ;-)

Someone needs to make a Casascius beanie baby. Then we could end this recession right now!

Was hoping that your 'no more non-bulk orders' was an April Fools at first glance, sad. Wanted to pick up some 0.5btc coins once you got them ready, you had only made a blog post a few days prior about starting that line of coins.

definitely. Collectors are asking about the condition of the coin and darkened brass (likely) or inreadable firstbits is definitely going to lower the price people are willing to pay.

EDIT: however, please note these coins already sell for 4 BTC or more (on forum) and/or USD 1.400 on ebay. So you got a good chance to make a huge profit when you sell them.

Only 1 feedback as a seller too, I'd be nervous to bid a lot for someone whose feedback is only as a buyer so far.

Only 1 feedback as a seller too, I'd be nervous to bid a lot for someone whose feedback is only as a buyer so far.

If the seller was the original buyer and wanted to identify himself, I'd be willing to validate him as having placed an order around that time if that's indeed the case.  It's plausible that someone who doesn't sell on eBay might sign up for eBay just to sell his newly discovered treasure.  I don't sell on eBay, but I have a ton of positive feedback because I used to sell random things a decade ago (mostly housecleaning).  If not for that, I'd be in his same position.

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.

That would be a nice thing for you to do and would certainly help move sales along.

I have a coin listed on my sisters ebay account (http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=230959708093) so I may ask you to do so if required  Smiley

Just curious how you combat the rife paypal fraud that seems to be happening with these items?  It has been suggested that the bid amounts on these coins are so high because the accounts are hacked and the "buyers" just want to get some easy bitcoins and will reverse the charges after they are recieved.  Even with the paypal protections in place, don't they usually side with the buyer in case of disputes?

I think if you can offer up a tracking-number as proof of delivery paypal will side with the merchant. But I'm not sure, have no experience with that kind of thing myself.

Mike, I emailed you twice about getting more info from you about if anything can be done for an order that shows it was delivered, but was never received.  I hope to hear from you soon - any additional info about tracking or delivery confirmation - or anything at all - would be a great help.

Can we have the next one be Web 2.0 compliant? That is, square with rounded corners and gradiated shading...

This listing is very much a test to see if the high prices are due to fraud or not.

I will use tracking and may even take photos/videos of me packaging and posting the coin. I'm hoping this will be enough for ebay/paypal to side with me!

It's currently on $632.00 with 4 days left!  Shocked
