I’m sure this subject has been addressed before, but rather than digging out an old post…..
There are sellers who don’t release coins from their Registry sets upon sale & too many of those don’t bother to respond to requests from Set Registry to release them. Yes, there are occasional extenuating circumstances: seller deceased, seller no longer part of Registry, etc.
Still, the “burden” is placed on the buyer to prove they actually own the coin in question by providing time/date stamped pics. I get that; no other way I can think of around it.
But, does Set Registry suspend repeat offenders? I don’t know, but if not, I think that should be done.
And, Set Registry is sometimes slow to release the coin for the buyer even after the pics are provided. Sorry - that shouldn’t be. Just my opinion(s).
