Skeptical at first, but very pleased!

I love Shire Post Mint coins, and I always have. Being an avid letter writer, the idea of Shire Post's quality in a changeable wax seal was exciting! But, I was worried the magnet wouldn't hold up to pulling back from the wax. I was wrong and I am so very happy about it.
The seals come out clear, and the magnet holds. It's really a joy. I can't wait for the next option.

Nice item. The interchangeable magnetic stamp is great for future stamps made. The repurposed handle might have a slight blemish but it doesn’t affect the functionality. Will buy more stamps when they make them available.
