Will these work in UK coin mechs or would I need to buy a US coin mech for these to work?

you'll need mechs that accept .984 size tokens.....there maybe a way to hack yours just do a search and you should find it.......

Got my brass today. I can't stress enough how unbelievable these look. And how unbelievably difficult it is to get a decent picture of them. Here is a close up showing detail and a smaller image better showing what they look like at actual size. Unfortunately no matter how I light these the metal comes out looking textured which is definitely NOT the case in reality. I order to get the detail I've had to light these very flatly.... so while these images do show detail keep in mind that the actual tokens are very shiny with a mirror like brass finish that I am unable to get in the photos. Basically the brass version of highly polished chrome. The metal looks perfectly smooth and all the cuts are absolutely razor sharp. The detail and sharpness just can't be reproduced in a photo... at least not by me. These FAR exceed my expectations. Better looking than the BYOAC versions IMHO.

Heres another. Shows the INCREDIBLE detail the mint can resolve. Unfortunately the better the detail in the stills the more misleading "scanning electron microscope mystery iron-like metal texture" is introduced. Just imagine the detail you see here but razor sharp on a perfectly smooth shiny coin.

Hey, are silver and brass shipping, or just brass?

Brass and Nickel are now both shipping.  I packed approximately the first third of the orders tonight (starting first-in), and will do my best to get all orders shipped this week.  No promises because with the holidays it is reeeeeeally hard, but I will try.  I know everyone is anxious and this took longer than any of us expected.

And Pixel, thanks for the incredible photos.  Mind if I steal a few of them for the website?

All orders received before yesterday will be shipped by tomorrow AM (the first half was shipped this morning.)

Going forward all orders should ship within 1-2 business days of receipt (except the first week in Feb, when I will be on vacation.)

I just got mine last night and I am really pleased with the way these came out.  The engraver really pulled out the stops on this one!  There's some really subtle texturing on the MAME machine giving it a very 3-D appearance.  The texture is far finer than the stipple on the last set.  The monitor does not have that texture, so it's smooth as glass. Pixel, was that texturing in your original art files?

Is there anyway you can split up the payment?

I got myself a debit card just for this but I accidentally got it for 10 dollars less than I wanted so now I'm stuck with one for 30USD and my old one that has ~22USD on it.

Is it possible for me to finish off the one and pay whatever's left on the balance off the other card?

Honestly I don't know how to make that happen.  If you can somehow arrange two paypal payments, one from each card or something like that, I wouldn't mind.  Maybe your bank could help.

Nicely done, Troz. THAT'S the way these pics should look.

Chris - I didn't specify any texture in the file at all. The cabinet is comprised of a total of 5 different levels. I imagine the subtle texturing is just an artifact of the planing/engraving process. It sure does add to the cab's appeal though. I was really surprised by how intricate and sharp the mint was able to keep the detail on such a small scale. The outline around the Mame logo is just under 3/1,000ths of an inch (27/10,000's  :o !)

Has anyone tried to purchase tokens and had trouble?

I made the PayPal payment, and haven't received any confirmation of my order, nor any responses to direct emails requesting order status or information.

I sure hope paypal has good dispute resolution, because I am starting to have bad feelings about this.

Don't worry. Santoro would absolutely NEVER stiff you on this. I've done work with him before and can tell you he is absolutely ethical. He's got to be insanely busy right now. Believe me, you'll get the tokens and you're gonna love them. Fire off another email, he'll get back to you soon I'm sure. He's a very nice and very concientious guy.

Good (and shiny) things come to those who wait.

Pixelhugger and JoyMonkey -

I see the problem -  My order and initial email were done the day before that vacation notice went up and before the vacation dates.

I guess he was busy packing and getting ready.

Thanks for the assurances, I'll look forward to Feb 7. I have token mechs and nothing to put thru them!!!!

Maybe I'll suggest he put an autoreply on his business email account!  ;D

I'll also email him and let him know you guys spoke so highly of him.

Thanks again. I can relax now.  :laugh:

I have lots of buttons, joysticks, a monitor, an IPac4, Optipac, spinner and a MAME box built.

No CAB.

But I am heading to Home Depot tonite for supplies  ;D
