Blank Planchet Sales

Here are records of recent sales on eBay from January 1, 2009 to June 30, 2009.

1. ALL LOTS HAD BUYERS. IF THE COINS ACTUALLY CHANGED HANDS IS UNKNOWN.
2. A PICTURE ACCOMPANIED EACH LOT OR IT WAS NOT RECOGNIZED.
3. BLURRY PICTURES OR OTHER PROBLEMS ARE NOTATED UNDER “OBSERVATION”.
4. ITEMS MISLABELED COMMANDED A SMALL PREMIUM.
5. SOME LOTS CHANGED HANDS MORE THAN ONCE.
6. ANY SCRATCHES, DENTS OR DEFECTS NOTATED WERE EITHER IN THE DESCRIPTION OR GRADING SERVICES’ HOLDERS.
7. AUCTION HOUSES THAT LISTED THESE ERRORS WERE IGNORED.
8. SHIPPING CHARGES ARE NOT INCLUDED.

My fascination with the manganese Presidential and Sacagawea dollar blanks are one reason I have been tracking blanks. I cannot figure out why these types are still showing up in Mint rolls. The Mint requires that these blanks go through two striking procedures. Then, how do these miss two processes? Where are the blanks with “edge lettering”? Now that the struck coins go directly to the edge lettering machines, why are “no edge lettering errors” being found? Manufacturing procedures have been known to be bypassed.
