This kilo proof was part of a large purchase. Everything else was great. This proof came with a slightly but definitely crushed box. The plastic capsule seems to have taken on internal damage from vibration. A small portion of the internal capsule along the rim is terribly marred. The plastic bits from this are scattered on the surface inside the capsule. The rest of the order included 25 other Perth mint capsuled coins including another kilo. No others but this proof have these defects. The whole point of a proof and the extra cost is to have something special. Will be contacting Apmex.
