Why I always open tubes of coins

Picture showed an opened roll with attractive coins. I received a sealed roll with tape that was very obviously old - peeled up in some spots, stuff underneath the edges. The roll had dirty packing peanuts instead of foam. All of the coins are covered in milk spots.

This person has sat on the return as long as they could. Then sat on sending the label as long as they could.

I even told the guy look I make mistakes too, just own it, and we can both move on. He doubled down and lied again. After all, if he checked all of them, he would've popped the seal and made a mess of the old adhesive.

Managed payments and BS like this, I can't believe I spend 6 figures a year on this platform. Especially now no Ebay bucks. Like damn dudes, it's like Ebay is purposefully trying to ruin coins and bullion sales.

Imagine receiving a message of "hey these had milk spots but the ones in the picture didnt" and then responding like this:

    Some people are just crummy. I had a seller once fight a return claiming that I harshly cleaned a coin before returning it. His pictures were garbage and just hid the hairlines.
    Your guy is probably just using ebay as a dumping ground hoping buyers won't really care or even check.

    All RCM silver tubes I've bought have had mint tape on them.

    The one sealed box of SMs I bought did not have tape on the tubes. All mint tubes I ship have tape added to secure the coins in the tube. Tube caps in a mint box are secure without tape.

    You removed them from a sealed mint box with taped caps? Or your seller of single tubes sent them to you with taped caps? Special RCM labeled tape? The sealed bullion maple boxes I have bought do not come with taped caps.

    I have received single rolls of various mints' bullion where the seller failed to secure the cap with tape and the cap popped off during transit and that package arrived with loose coins. Not a pretty sight.

    Alibaba maples don't count......Actually Youtube is our friend:
    Edit: Sounds like the OP doesn't know what they were actually purchasing.

    Sounds like you filed for a return with him rather than a SNAD? I thought for SNADs ebay handles the label?

    I think they got inches and millimeters confused!

    Bullion is Bullion. Milk spots do take them longer to sell.
