stages

Here are the 3 stages of finish before the stamping:
1. Fresh from the mold 
2. Random orbit sanded with 220 grit 
3. Hand sanded with 320, then 400, then buffed with 000 steel wool.
Note:  Only about .3 grams per coin is lost in this finishing process

John is there a stamp of the first minting. If so would it be possible for a chance to get a first print and second print? I missed the first one.
