I've been keeping a list of 10-coin group sales on eBay ever since Mint mayhem day. I'm up to 99 right now.

41 sales happened the 1st day, 9 the 2nd day, and 10 the 3rd day. Every day since has been just a few, and 3 of the last 7 days have had zero sales.
When in doubt... don't.

My experience would say that the normal collector does not load up the phone lines and buy 10 at a time. The dealers may have followed the mint's rules, but if so they may need to revisit the rules. This is the same way ticket scalpers lock out fans from an event and force prices higher. I believe they need to do something to protect collectors or they kill the hobby. I can pay the inflated price, my grandchildren cannot, and that is how a hobby dies.

Very well put! The world is more and more about greed ("a selfish and excessive desire for more of something [such as money] than is needed") and less and less about self respect ("pride and confidence in oneself; a feeling that one is behaving with honor and dignity" ). Not only is it killing this hobby, it is killing us all. I guess I've grown to pessimistic in my old age. I suppose things have always been this way and I was to preoccupied to realize it. :(

In the "always been this way" notion, I am listening to a podcast that goes through the Presidential races one at a time starting with Washington. Fake news goes all the way back to Jefferson, so nothing new. Greed probably goes all the way back to Moses.

Looks like the silver supply is a big factor in the changes, but they finally admitted that the dealers piling in and using technology to suck up the available coins did happen with the privy issues.

Sounds like their website design is all screwed up and they need to fix it. How can this be? They don't have a systems manager/team maintaining their software? This is not a good sign. Peace Roy
