Another important thing with the replacement coupon Dan Kolton got is the circumstances of his original order.
A few of the early MicroProse orders like Dan's had their coupons redeemed.
Others got a notice like this

The important part with the other orders was that your coupons remained valid
even though all MicroProse orders were canceled.
Unlike Dan Kolton your coupons were free to get another box (even though you wanted the MicroProse).
What I am getting at is that MicroProse will not be replacing everyone's coupons.
They don't know if you got another box or let them expire hoping for a reissue from the NTIA's stupid "use it or loose it" program.
They only know who's coupons they redeemed and are trying to correct the situation with employee donated coupons like they did for Dan.
I know this may make others mad thinking that they might also be getting a coupon from MicroProse but they didn't make your coupons expire and it was the NTIA who also forced MicroProse to cancel all orders.
I also wanted to tell everyone that the
MicroProse MPI-500PT* is now officially on the NTIA Approved List.
The NTIA fixed their typo of Miro
