I think you are correct about buying from a dealer Bill. Mine were bought from my better half's account on ebay.

I was wondering who'd hacked into my account.
P.S. That skirt you ordered showed up here too. It's super cute!!!

These cups were NOT damaged in transit, I have stated that in the review and also stated that I was "sent junk" on this thread, meaning that the cups were obviously sent in used and damaged condition.


Sorry about that, I was incorrect.

No need for an apology Kevin, I actually would rather someone send out decent cups which were damaged in the mail than send out cups in that condition in the first place!

It's far easier to beat up the mailman than to beat up the random dude in Nepal who sent you a crummy set of cups.

I've seen a couple sets of these at Denny's shop in Vegas. There not bad I think the center beads are less pronounced than they should be. But they are usable. I have handled them more than once and haven't seen any plating issues on the sets there. For the price they are worth it.

About copper plated copper...
Just wondering why choose this method: Could it be that plating means there's less work to do polishing & buffing the cups?

No, not at all. The plated surface will have all of the bumps and lumps of the surface itself. Plating can make an alloy that doesn't mix properly look all the same color, though. Or it can take three cups that are different colors and make them appear to be the same.

Thanks Bill. So, the cups can be made of less high-quality copper?

Yes. To be kinder, I would say "less consistent" copper. You could use copper from two different batches and plate the cups to look alike.

It puzzled me for some time as to why they would be plated. I initially thought that it was to save money on polishing, however the plating is dependant on the surface anyway so you'd need a polished finish. Though I noticed the ones advertised by some dealers are satin finish. I think that you have hit the nail on the head Bill, it's the only palusible explanation I think.
