The triangle pattern usually for large size gold coin, but not always. It may start in 1993. Silver pandas from Shenyang are in triangle pattern. IMO, triangle is more secure, therefore for large size coins. This is another reason the 1998 1/2 oz gold panda had two different patterns, one is similar to earlier Shenyang gold panda and one similar to later Shenyang pattern.    

do you think this one is resealed?

 Edges of seal look odd.

And appearances of coins seem off: possible scratches on coin or capsule?

Yes,

Deception seems to be a cottage industry now.

IMO, they are OMP from Shenyang. All silver 1 oz from Shenyang Mint have this triangle pattern in three sides. The pouch appears to be deteriorated and some oily plasticize was released to cover and adhere to the capsule surface. This may be caused by storage in warm enivronment for a prolong period of time. However, the coins will be OK as long as the capsule is sealed properly.

One edge of each coin seems either cut off from photos, or if shown maybe looks flattened as if re-sealed?

Poconopenn your photo shows the usual three triangle sides, and then the one fine pattern side.
The pbotos in the ad seem to my eyes to have only two sides triangle, one fine pattern, and the last side should be triangle pattern but seems plain?

If you say it looks ok, then I trust it.

Admittedly my eyes are tired.

Beautiful coins.  I have passed on this set a few times, but always lust after them

if this coins are orig. mint sealed, it would be the oldest triangle pattern i have ever seen.

Poconopenn knows wraps   N31

Here is the 1992 Shenyang Panda again in Triangle pattern, then 1991 in earlier Wire pattern.
So 1992 likely start first Shenyang Triangle pattern?
