Thanks for this comment, Im still learning about PM and yes I have been living under a rock for 20 years it would seem, . I didn't know of milk spotting until a month after I started this year. However I have come to accept them on bullion products as they are relatively cheap compared to proof coins, I then realised it was the norm to recieve milk spotted products from a fresh tube. To me I thought with anything when buying brand new I would get a pristine condition product, little did I know this was not the case. Anyhow at a small expense compared to proof coins, I can now near enough accept it but not happy about it.
For proof coins I thought they would be in mint condition, prime condition, the creme de la creme of silver coins. Is this not the case and I should accept milk spots and little blemishes on day one? (The fibres didn't really concern me for some reason, probably because they were not part of the coin)
I understand milk spots might build up overtime and the coin would deteriorate over time, but to expect that on day one of owning a proof coin is abit of a ask for me.
Is my expectation too high for this?
Greatful for everyones insights on this, good or bad. 👍
