American Eagle 2021 One Ounce Silver Reverse Proof Two-Coin Set Designer Edition

Did anyone else here get the new American Eagle 2021 One Ounce Silver Reverse Proof Two-Coin Set Designer Edition? After many attempts to get past the U.S Mints website fiasco <once again> at the noon launch... I gave up.

Fed up, I went and ate lunch, when I returned about 90 minutes later, just for giggles I went back to the mints website. Somehow, I got through and was surprised that I was immediately able to order 1 set. Later I saw the ridiculous prices on the Bay, confirmed OGP sets for $350-$600 and slabbed sets well over $1K.

Later that day, I received the 2021-W Uncirculated SAE in the mail. Looks nice in hand, but still just don't dig the "new" Reverse. The Mint should have updated the 1916-1947 WLH Reverse and used it instead. The new Reverse has way too much empty field, even a "hammered" finish like on the Gold Buffalo would have helped greatly.

Thoughts?

Exact same thing happened to me regarding the order. Couldn't connect during the first 20 minutes, came back after lunch and errands 2 hours in and ordered a set no problems.

The new reverse is more realistic depiction than the old one, and it was odd to see the original ASE reverse with that obverse in 1986. It'll grow on me. I just need the next page for my Dansco.
