  1. There's 2 different NY coins. The one you posted is the one I designed and NYGO funded in 2005. I see people selling this one sometimes, often ones that you can adopt. There's another one from 2007 as well but I don't know anything about it, really.
  2. I have a green glitter "For Geo Guys Only" coin to trade to someone who wants a cheap thrill. The top is a separate piece that's held on by magnets. I would like to trade for a BelKen coin with the kangaroo on it, but failing that just let me know what you have to offer. If you do have a BelKen coin to trade shoot me an email, maybe we can work something out.
  3. Amazing to see these popping up all over the world. Someone's been busy!
  4. I never had a dipper until going to the Groundspeak HQ and getting a Lackey coin. I don't dip it into every cache, just once when I travel a long distance or to a new state. http://www.geocaching.com/track/map_gm.aspx?ID=1390918
  5. Man that was fast, someone got me the address I needed already! Thanks to everyone who messaged me to help out. This really makes my day.
  6. They may be in the google address list. Here is a link to the topic for information on getting access. Or, since I'm not the person, you can send me an email and I'll see if they are in the spreadsheet http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...=175199&hl= I never even knew such an address book existed, haha. With any luck you can find it in there, and I'll have to see about getting myself added. Thanks for the tip.
  7. This is really messed up because I can't even list their name and keep it a surprise, but there's a cacher who gave me one of their coins a while ago and I lost her address. I know her name and the city, but not the street address. My last hope before just asking her for it again is that someone who's sold a lot of coins might have the address stored somewhere. If anyone is willing to look just send me an IM or email. I'd really appreciate it.
  8. If you want to have an American flag because that's where you're from, do it. If you're concerned with selling the absolute most you can then consider doing something to add different flags. Geocaching might be an international game, but your coin already says when it was established, and it was established in the United States. It's your coin and in the end you should make it the way you want it to be. There's plenty of reasons to go either way, including leaving it as is. And in regards to there already being a few badge coins already... this one is the best looking one so far in my opinion. Nice job.
  9. Today I received the coins in the mail, and Oakcoins did a wonderful job on them! I asked for one without any epoxy on it and you can really tell a difference in how crisp the details look. Epoxy REALLY brings out the details! I want to share the final result of my project, but please, Finger Lakers, no emails about buying them yet. I'm just one guy and need time to get ready to mail all of these things, lol. It's been a long time since I've done this.
  10. I've never gotten a mystery coin, but now that I've seen the Dutch Lion coin I'm itching for my first one. That beaut is totally my kind of coin. I'd also like to get a BelKen coin. Sorry, less than 5, I know!
  11. After looking through my coins for a bit I'd say that these are my 10 favorites, excluding my own personal and my upcoming Finger Lakes coin. Waypoint 15 - This one was and always has been my most desired and by far my favorite coin. It's rare and because of how simple it is I think it's one of the best looking coins made to date. tsunrisebey - I drove from Southern California to Montana, through the Rockies during a winter storm to get this one. Facedances Ver. 1 - I have a thing for old coins and I love the look of this one quite a bit. Simple designs are my favorites. I also met Facedances once. I think... I dunno, there were a lot of people at that event. 2005 Groundspeak Volunteer - When these coins first were made I said I wanted one, but only if it was owned by a volunteer I'd met before. Thanks to Carleenp I got that wish! 2007 Groundspeak Lackeys - This coin was given to me when I visited the Groundspeak HQ in Seattle. 2003 USA (unactivated) - This is the second geocoin ever made, and I dare say finding one of these that's unactivated is harder than getting one of the first geocoins ever made. 2005 NYGO proof - The first New York geocoin was among the first trackable geocoins, and it just so happens I designed it. I got to have the one and only proof for doing so. Mertat - Another very simply designed coin without any color. Just the way I like them. It's my understanding that Mertat never traded these. I was lucky enough to have mine given to me by Mertat herself. The first GHOST / SWAGS coin - I bet not many people posting now even know of / remember the SWAGS club, but this is the first coin they put out. I always loved this one because of how few were made and because I mean come on, who doesn't like a slug melting in a spilled margarita? Geowoodstock 3 - This is another one of the first coins to be trackable, and I actually bought mine at the event itself. It was a great time, but way too humid in Florida for me, lol.

  12. I like this idea quite a bit. I tried to have a TB I'd drop in each cache I found, but got tired of doing it manually after about 10 of them.
  13. I actually knew a hobo named Rags back during the depression who passed away because of liver failure. Poor Rags never knew when to let go of the bottle, probably because of his young age.
  14. What I don't understand is if someone's going to steal coins why bother posting anything at all? Maybe they just want to get people worked up and will actually put the coins back somewhere once they've had their fun.
  15. Durr... I can't believe I didn't think of that. You're surely correct. I was thinking it was the waypoint for an actual cache but it's not.
  16. A 2004 USA sold for something like $40 recently on ebay.
  17. what was it? congrats! rsg It was an unactivated 2003 USA geocoin. Paid a pretty penny for it, but you get what you pay for as they say.
  18. Anything past 2005 is going to have a hard time grabbing my attention. I got one from 2003 just recently that I've spent 4 years looking for!
  19. It's interesting to see all the oldies moving from hand to hand both on ebay and all of the sale threads here. I wonder how long it'll be before something truly old and rare gets sold, and how much we'll see it go for!
  20. I'd buy one if the road to the APE cache didn't have 2 feet of snow covering it when I was up that way. At least I got the one in Maryland before it was archived.
  21. Well I've never seen the forum bug and not even post the OP before. Sheesh. Anyway... With so many people selling their collections on eBay recently I've been able to pick some old 2003-2005 coins I've always wanted that I was never even able to trade for back in the day. Kind of ironic since I sold a number of my coins, but these days I'm focusing more on quality over quantity and just getting oldies I never managed to snag before. Anyone else been making a killing in the buying rather than selling field on there lately?
  22. Going with the theme... HammerJane/SilverDragon.
  23. Not necessarily. I've got a trackable coin being made as we speak with its own icon but I'm only have 100 of them made. I'm just not using the other 150 tracking numbers. I guess that's not really something viable for most people though. For what it's worth all of my top favorite coins are not trackable. Today more people seemed concerned with getting an icon than back when I was collecting a lot of coins though. I don't really care one way or the other, but I think it's silly to buy tracking numbers and then use the generic icon.
  24. This is exactly my feelings as well. I have no problem with a copy. It's funny how no one ever has a problem with proxy travel bug tags, now that I think about it. Those are just as fake. If you don't like copies of coins don't take them, simple as that.
