No way that the mint is going to sell this out, the mintage is to high.

I agree. I was pretty disappointed they decided to have such a huge mintage.

Once the Mint has a sell out of a product, they seem to do everything possible to prevent future sell outs of future similar products. Most recent examples are First Spouse Dolley Madison and now the Reverse Proof Plat Set.

If the mint is trying to prevent sell-outs, I guess I'm wondering why my platinum set was backordered 18 minutes after the set went on sale. All those people not ordering the set overloaded the system to an extent that it took me 18 minutes to get through.
