This is a great seal

I love the seal but have 2 suggestions. Would be nice to have a package deal and maybe a this time they have one. Also would like to see the reverse of the original coin as a stamp. To be clear though I am so happy with the product.

Way too expensive for the money spent

I purchased the seal and the holder. Total cost $$$. Get the seal but make your own holder if you wish.

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.
