Since I'm quit new to collecting physical silver Im' looking for some advice from someone who has experience with silver coins.
Last week I ordered 25 silver maple leafs (2011) from a german online coin dealer :http://www.heubach-edelmetalle.de/
Since I'm a poor student this is only the second silver purchase I ever made. The first time I ordered at an other German shop and received 25 Maples in perfect mint condition.
Whoever when I received the tube this morning in the mail from this new shop I immediately noticed all the coins had white like haze between the reeded edges. Some of them also had that white haze on the surface. And no it are not fingerprints. Some coins had small wells too.
I heard cleaning coins is a bad idea and make them lose value. Obviously I was expecting to receive somewhat new or shiny coins and I'm not happy with this…
These are the pictures (the other coin is a mint coin to see the difference)
Should I ask for a refund or is this normal??
