I have asked stryde for an update on my coin 5 days ago and I still haven't received anything (except an "we will look into it"-answer). I asked again two days ago, but still nothing. Getting suspicious and really annoyed right now.

For those of you who already have had their coins shipped, roughly how long did it take for them to arrive (U.S. btw).  I received an order shipped email on Jan 20th, and have not received anything 9 days later.  I am getting unhappy with stryde, especially considering the $15 I was forced to pay for shipping, this thing should have been here next day.  Also it says UPS was the shipping method, but I can't find a tracking number anywhere, either in the email or under my account on their website.  Why on earth would they not send a tracking number with an order that was over $100?

Mine took 8 days, but they are on the East Coast while I am on the west Coast.
They shipped via UPS which is slower than USPS; however, it is WAY more secure and automatically insured.

You were not forced to pay $15 in shipping.  You didn't even have to order it.  Sorry, it just kills me that people know UP FRONT what the cost is and complains about it after the fact.  Just consider it a $115 coin with free shipping.

I do agree that they should have emailed a tracking number.  They do need to change.  I didn't find out my tracking until I signed for the package.  Smiley

If you want a coin fast, just PM me.  I will sell for $100 + $6 shipping (paid via Bitcoin of course) via USPS Priority Mail.  Fair?   Smiley

I ordered within a few days of this topic being created.  It took so long to get to me (I am domestic usa too), that when it came in I was totally surprised as I forgot I had even ordered it.

I can swap them for better ones for defects that are unique to individual coins. Sometimes the marks are in the die itself, and that just ends up on all the coins, but if gold is out of place, I can swap to improve that.

got my replacement coin today looks better thanks

And you ordered on the 4th? Something fishy going on there. Sorry to hear.

I received mine (purchased the 7th) about a week or so ago. It is pristine and has none of the gold bleed as the pic floating around this thread. Another satisfied Cas-tomer Tongue It's getting sent out to ANACS with my 2012's for grading.

Thanks, Mike!

Well, guess what, I have received an email saying that my coin has been send. It took them 26 days to send it out, now lets see how long shipping takes and how it looks. I hope I get a good looking one and not one of the gold bleed ones..

Great to hear! Yeah, it seams like people get their coins, just need to have a lot patience.
If you send some of them off to grading, then please send me a PM if I can piggy-bag 1 or 2 Casascius St. Petersburg coins.
Cheers!

This one's mine. I'm pleased not to have gotten one with gold spillage. Mine arrived to the UK a couple of weeks ago. Sucks for those who've been waiting a long time.







A very satisfying buy overall.

Well it has been 2 weeks since I got my shipping confirmation, sent them an email tonight asking where my coin is at.  Will keep everyone posted.

Sigh, apartment complex fail.  After talking with Stryde's help desk (which handled my issue quickly and efficiently), they informed me that my coin had been delivered and was at my apartment complex's office, and even though I have checked with them, twice over the last week, they indeed did have it and just failed to notify me.

Anyway, good job on stryde's part and beautiful coin.  I think I will definitely be getting this graded and put up for display.

EDIT:  I have never gotten a coin graded before, I think I want to use PCGS or NGC, can anyone provide advice on what they should be submitted under?

Not sure they will grade Casascius, or any crypto for that matter...if anyone has different information please do share.  Believe ANACS is our best option for now...

Has anyone sent their game coin in yet?  I am awaiting delivery of another coin and will be sending mine with it.

I have seen his graded coins in the marketplace before. So somehow, somewhere someone is grading them.

Great!  Thanks for the information.

I am contacting them about getting these (and some of my other coins) graded.  If anyone would like to piggy back on that would be fine with me.  I will post back with further information once I receive it from them, including pricing and time lines.

Indeed--quite easy to get these coins graded with ANACS.  PCGS and NGC still don't accept crypto-related coins, although I'd wager that will change eventually.  Submittal details here:

I have noticed that this coin is now listed as "Out of Stock" on the Stryde website, after weeks of the quoted "In Stock:" numbers not really moving. I wonder if that means Casascius kept with his plan of melting down some of the remaining stock to be made into next year's coins?

Besides the splashed gold-plating, the coins I've seen so far look amazing and should get some pretty high grades I'd say.
