Mike, are you planning on doing any more auctions or have you opened up sales to invited resellers?

I am selling 1BTC and 0.5BTC coins on my website in rolls of 50.  I intend to do auctions but don't have specific plans to do so as long as I am continuing to get orders for rolls at a rate that isn't significantly slower than I am producing them.  (I expect a possibility it could slow down, and will probably use auctions to essentially lower the price).  To a certain extent I don't know what I will do, because my selling activities have been very much "reactive" lately in a manner that I'm not sure I could have expected in advance and aren't going to any sort of pre-determined schedule.

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.

Glad to hear that, I was getting a little concerned as of Thursday mine hadn't showed & if sent even by the 23rd April (a week after the auction ended) that's two & a half weeks in transit already, whereas last time it was 10 days from when the auction ended to receipt of the coins here in Spain, with a $50 shipping fee & no tracking this time, anyway I shall go visit the the town where my PO box is again tomorrow Saturday (quite time & petrol consuming) & hope that they've finally been delivered.

There's tracking for registered, it's just not as useful, AND, typing in the tracking numbers for international registered is overwhelmingly manual and tedious as they don't give a barcode, just a loose slip of paper with the number assigned at the post office.  I have them and will share with anyone who hasn't received their shipment yet.  What I did instead is switched to FedEx for the international.  Compared to international registered mail it's far easier (but it was worth the experiment).  I'd probably prefer DHL, but there's a FedEx close to here, and not DHL.  so far, FedEx seems to be working well.

otoh, I PM'd you the tracking number for yours.

I wish that you'd have advised ppl of this beforehand, my address is a post office box & they do not accept courier deliveries that have to be signed for in person by the person they are addressed to also couriers when they do deliver to my home collect import duty on delivery whereas the post office most times don't, if you included my phone number on the address there's a chance that FedEx may call me to find out my home address for delivery but this doesn't seem to have happened as with a courier it should only take about 3 days door to door & this has been much longer in transit, I'll go in & ask the PO if they know anything but having done this many times already I don't expect they will - then I'll start to look up the tracking on FedEx & hope they haven't returned the package to you.

Just checked the tracking number with FedEx & they say that it's invalid, will try it with USPS in case.

Edit: I thought that it looked like a USPS tracking number, seems that it was sent Priority Mail International Parcels - Registered Mail as last time & not by courier so I must have misunderstood your post, anyway it left NY's sorting facility on the 21st April which is almost 3 weeks ago now & even with a May day's bank holiday is much slower than usual, sent on the Monday the 15th April which was very fast dispatch as the auctions only ended the day before so not your fault. Going to visit the PO again now, fingers crossed...

Edit 2: Yep it was there, arrived yesterday, fantastic packing as always, many thanks! So all 5 rolls that I won received, please to fund them at your convenience.

Sending Registered Mail is a bit of a joke.  Here is the concise summary:

Registered Mail International works great, and a good value for the price, but is VERY TEDIOUS in that all the paperwork has to be done by hand multiple times.  It also ties up the post office employees for a very long time.  I have quickly concluded it's not a good idea.  The tracking number is of the format RE#########US, it's assigned at the time of mailing, given to me only as a hard copy, the only way to notify anyone of what it was is to hand type it (as if there wasn't enough manual work already)

Registered Mail in the US works really well and has the benefit of being very well insured.  Not too tedious, but a few quirks.  My software sends a Priority Mail confirmation number to the recipient's e-mail that is worthless, and also says they'll be receiving Priority Mail.  When they look at this worthless number, it will show no activity, as though the item was never mailed.  The real number is given to me hardcopy at the time of mailing, no barcode.  Kind of sucks but oh well.  The worthless tracking number starts with 94, and the real tracking number is another RE#########US.

FedEx fixes all the problems and gets the package there faster, albeit at a bit higher cost.  And they can't deliver to PO boxes.  I have only been shipping FedEx when people willingly pay the higher cost, choosing the courier option on my website... none of the auction rolls were sent FedEx.

Mike gave me a sample of his aluminum blank at the conference. I thought I would let everyone see what it looks like. It is larger than a 1 BTC coin and surprisingly light (being solid aluminum).

I handed out a very large number of the blanks at the end of the conference. If you grabbed a handful and you found a good use for them, consider sending Mike some money for them.

Hi Mike,
Will you be at DefCon this year?  Selling coins?

I see the value of Bitcoin, so I don't worry about the price...
