  1. This coin is fun! B):)

    And since it will be send to places all over the world, I hope it will also come to my doorstep.

    It would fit in realy nice between my Chargeman & Nordjas coins and Tick coins :D

  2. I joined the race. Now I hope at least one of the coins will make it to Geocoinfest 2011. After the race I will change the goal in to reaching me in the Netherlands. Maybe a coin will make it. But I'm glad I already have the complete series in hand (album).

  3. You can ask the cacher who grabbed the coin from you for the trackingcode. You then grab it back and log it with a note in the cache where you left it. The other cacher can then retrieve it like he should have done in the first place. You could make a remark about patience in your e-mail to the other cacher.


    If that cacher desn't respond to your e-mail, you could contact the owner of the coin for the trackingcode. Then you will have to do the grabbing and dropping also. And let the other cacher know you grabbed the coin from him and he doesn't have it in his inventory. Otherwise he may drop it of in a cache realtime but can't do so virtual.


    I see these things happen more and more. Not only during vacation periods. Cachers nowadays don't seem to know how things are done.

  4. I got mine today as well (#10 of 36). What a difference compared to the other four I have now. No collors on the front and just some dark brown on the back. There were also two small damages on the outer ring.

    It looks like they made a mistake, were pressed for time and decided to send them anyway.

    This one is realy just for collection sake.


    I'm happy I got some other coins as well: the 2010 Lackey, 2 new Large Tengwars, the Orange Butterfly 2010 AND :anibad: the copper/silver Chelmo's NZ Silver Fern and a Geocache America Silver coin.


    Don't get me wrong. Allthough the Lotus Compass wasn't the way it was intended to be, I'm still very happy to have it. And I will make sure I get an Anubis as well :rolleyes:

  5. Silver envelope from Ada, MI. Yes! It's a Geofun Cointainment Unit :wacko:

    And in it, a note that says it all (although I still gotta figure out what it all says) and an object to be studied by me as a member of the Cointact Unit Study Group.

    It is object # 079.


    My first observation: It is very very good looking! :signalviolin:


    Thanks for letting me into the Study Group. :(

  6. I went to one of the ten year events and picked up a Manitoba 10 year geocoin, since I liked it so much I bought a second one. I don't really have many geocoins, so getting a second one isn't normal. A fellow cacher had an extra and they owed me a little cash so we settled the $10 tab with one more Manitoba coin. I thought the third coin I could trade for a different geocoin.


    Anyway, I thought I would have a look and see what these 10 year coins are going for on e-bay and I was blown away that the coins are going for anywhere from about $25 to a Manitoba coin going for $90!


    I guess collectors are wanting to have the whole set? Any idea of the mint run of each of the different 10 year coins? Do some of the coins have a smaller mint run than others?




    Most of the coin-edition had an amount of 100 coins minted. Some had a little more. The coins that were sold by the coinshops had runs of 200 coins (or more?).


  7. Who could place an order for me for two coins (1 of each)? I would pay by a PayPal money transfer. Of course I will pay for Shipping, Handling and Phoning too!


    Please contact me by e-mail through my profile.

  8. That would most probably be Cache Addict since he did the Four Elements series.

    However its not his style to have an icon before the sale of 250 coins. And the icons have an other design then the normal sized coin icons.

    Conclusion: You and I don't know B)

  9. Today I came home from my walk with Joep, the Beagle, when the neighbours, who just returned from a short holiday, started talking to me. During this short conversation a guy came walking up to me with a envelope in his hand. He didn't look like the postman at all but did hand me the envelope. A nice brown one, made of recycled paper. A looked at it and noticed two odd things: the sender was also my name and adress and it was sent through Royal Mail. I didn't know of any coin I ordered in Great Brittain.

    When I looked insite there was this very big and beautiful coin.

    Thank you very much!



  10. Congratulations on your wedding on 10-10-10.

    But this threat (as well as the other threat) is about the coin and the event that should go down at 10-10-10.

    This is the third event of this kind (to my knowledge) and the idea is from Avroair. He designs the coin as well.

    It's not considdered good manors trying to sell your coin in someone elses threat.

    So would you please start your own threat and delete your messages from this one?


    I have made a 10-10-10 geocoin if anyone is interested. I have posted more information in this post: http://forums.Groundspeak.com/GC/index.php...t&p=4362283

  11. I am considering the idea of hosting a 10-10-10 event and take part in the project.


    Besides, I'll turn 30 (10+10+10) 8 days after that date, so I might find something cool to do!


    I won't turn 30 since I was born in '63 but it will be 8 days after the event as well :angry:

  12. I hope Better Half will recover that much to be able to go out caching again. Maybe not in the way you used to.

    I've also put the coins on watch so I might help by buying one or more of them at a good price.

    Didn't you activate #3 and #4? They don't appear on your Owned Trackables list.




    As most of you may know, we were quite active on the geocoin threads. We haven't been on here for a long time, because a little over a year ago, Suzie (Better Half) suffered a stroke, which left her paralyzed on the right side. She is recovering well, but will be permanently disabled.


    Prntr1 was understanding enough to give his blessing for us to sell an entire set of Shiny Gold Special Edition Civil War coins, to help raise money to pay her on-going medical expenses.


    These coins are activated, but will be adopted out to the purchaser. As you may know, these are the rarest of the series.


    We will be putting other older coins up periodically, to also help pay for the medical costs.


    We really appreciate any help with this. Suzie remains in good spirits, but is disappointed that she is no longer able to geocache.


    We send a GREAT BIG hug and kiss to prntr1 for his kindness and understanding.


    Thank you to all of you for any help.


    Ryder3 & Better Half

  13. I appreciate that Oak is giving these coins to the hosts for this event. With all the complaints logged, I'm sure it will be the last time it happens.


    Wanna, I'm willing to give mine up if you want it.


    Thanks Joni but the Mardi Gras coin isn't really my color choice. I really love the Texas coin and am very happy with it.


    I would like to say that I wasn't trying to complain and ruin it for the hosts of future events. I was just stating that I think maybe Oak Coins should have put more thought into their gift giving.


    It is a very nice gesture on their part.

    As far as I know, there hasn't been done any gifting yet. And Oakcoins did not say if and who they are going to give presents. There is a saying in Dutch that says you shouldn't sell the skin before the bear was shot. I guess you get my drift.

  14. Does anyone know at which event the Rhinelander edition was sold? Or at least a part of the 200 coins that were produced.


    Somewhere in Texas.

    Bedankt, dankje (meaning Thank you, thanks)


    The rest was sold at the Geocoinstore.


    You mean Geoswag ;-)

    That's what I said, didn't I? :blink:
