    That’s the mint for you, one terrible decision after another. So, with a limit of 2 and 17k mintage it will sell out in 20 minutes instead of 12. Still way too fast and the mint forgoes profit.

    This is the perfect solution if the 17,000 total is etched in stone. In fact, I’d recommend a limit of ONE, but the flippers’ heads might explode. After all, there is a constitutional right to make money flipping hard to get goods, right? There isn’t?!?! One would have thought so for the way flippers behave.
