  1. MWGB Passing the Torch shipped to me today so we will be sending those out hopefully on Friday. I'll have to lookup the date for the May Signals
  2. As an additional FYI... May Signal is due in on June 19th and will ship right away and June Signal is due to arrive on July 7th. So as you can see we are gradually getting them on track. Dates are always subject to change until I have them in hand but that is from my latest status report.
  3. There was a maintenance issue at the host this morning and they were already rebooting by the time I was able to get a human on the line in tech support. It is estimated that it should be back online in the next ten minutes so the sales "should" be able to go off as planned. Rusty...
  4. If you have very high name recognition in the gc community, or if you have a really top notch geocaching related design, or preferrably both you still have a chance to sell enough coins to pay for your icon. If you don't fall into those catagories you better bring your VISA card I have been getting more and more people wanting truly personal coins and lower quantities and I think that is the best choice for most people that want a coin. Make it personal and make what you can afford on your own. You will be happier and your coin will be more desirable if it is relates to geocaching and represents your personality. My .02
  5. Your missing coin was sent out two days ago. Your email to info@ was forwarded to me for shipping, sorry if you did not get a specific reply. Sweet, thanks a bunch. I imagine you get quite a few emails... . Still nothing? Do you need more info from me??? Could you just send me an email to rusty at personalgeocoins.com I don't have a cross-reference from real names to forum handles so maybe I'm confusing you with someone else or have a wrong address, I don't know. The coins I said I shipped did ship so we need to figure this out.
  6. Synthetic hard enamel on the flower sides and soft enamel on the Signal side. Transparent might have been cool for the flowers but I didn't want to repeat the same thing in consecutive months. I don't know if the sample is posted anywhere but it turned out really nice. June is back to round but will be 1.75" like the April GCC coin. Rusty...
  7. If the price of making a coin goes up even .50 cents there is some price gouging going on, IMHO.
  8. I have probably shipped as many individual packages of coins as anybody and I think the US Post Office gets an A+ rating. We get a report of lost coins about 1 in each 100 packages but actual lost coins by the Post Office are maybe 1 in 2000 packages. We see an erratic rate of late deliveries and sometimes it is 10 days for a coin that should have been delivered in 2 days but they do get there. Experience has taught me that if you use quality packaging, proper legible addressing, and proper postage your coins will arrive, ocassionally late but they will get there. If your return address is clear the improper shipments will make it back to you eventually. In February I screwed up the address on a bunch of International shipments and I just got another one of them back Saturday. Out of about 70 packages 40 have made there way back so far. Rusty...
  9. Drop me an email directly and I'll get it checked out for you, make sure you include your name so I can look up the shipment. rusty at personalgeocoins.com I think you are probably talking about the 'refurb' 2005 coins which were hand engraved locally. Rusty...
  10. There is a brand new icon for April, apparently it hasn't been installed yet. Don't hold me to it because I'm not involved with this part but I think there is a new icon every month going forward.
  11. Well I would like to keep it since there was only 10 made and of those 10 only three have been spoken for. . No problemo, enjoy
  12. 424 = Arctic Nomad 409 = Great Rewards 408 = Two Happy Hikers Vintage Caching 393 = Circle of Safety Not listed: 430 = Civil War #8 431 = Civil War #9 432 = Civil War #10 433 = Civil War #7 434 = Civil War #6 435 = Civil War #5
  13. Isn't that the "Avalanche" icon? I don't think 2HH has a "trackable" coin yet.... That is 2 Happy Hikers: Vintage Caching (coming soon)
  14. That's MY coin! Actually we order <10 blanks of each Geocoin Store coin for our own sample book and I never found the pack of blanks in the mtn-man box so they went out in the wild. Yours is the 3rd one I know about and you can keep it one or I'll swap it for the trackable one I have in my book since I didn't have a blank to keep
  15. Which coin? Have you sent an email inquiring about the shipping date along with your name and order info? You can email me direct through my profile if you want me to check to see if your coin has shipped. Be sure to include your name (as it is in Paypal) and the coin you ordered. Rusty...
  16. Making the front like a stained glass window was the intended effect and I think that worked. If you want less enamel you will like the May coin since it does not have any enamel and will be a PROOF coin. I have done one other proof geocoin and it turned out great so I have high hopes for May. June's design will feature two special effects, one of which I have yet to see on a geocoin even though it is very cool and the other effect has only been on one coin that I know of and I did that one.
  17. All coins in the above post are shipped complete. All outstanding replacment or missing coin requests to the Geocoin Store have been sent as of yesterday. The following coins will ship tomorrow & Saturday: March Signal Jan & the Percy Boys Hobo Dude
  18. FYI - March Signals are shipping tomorrow & Saturday for all orders placed through today. March is the best yet, very cool coin. Jan & Feb were shipped yesterday for all orders through Monday. All versions will ship again next week. PS: January is ALMOST sold out so if you might want one don't wait.
  19. Then I'm thinking of another metal cause most of the coins coming from the geocoin store are really lightweight compared to all other vendors including you and your bear coins. Coin Store & Coin Club coins only come in two versions - copper stamped and zinc die cast. Stamping is our prefered method but certain designs can only be done in cast. Most of them are 3.5mm thick although a couple have been 3.0 and a couple were 4.0mm.
  20. All replacements for returns that I had received as of yesterday were mailed yesterday. If a couple more trickle in I'll send them out at the end of next week.
  21. I have not been able to contact who I need to get the activation codes loaded online. So... and I may regret this... if you need a code you can email me either through my profile or direct rusty at personalgeocoins.com I know they will be online within 24-48 hrs but if you need it right now just drop me an email and I'll try to be as quick as I can.
  22. Shipped yesterday and today - all open orders as of Monday, International and domestic: - 2006 MiGO Lighthouse coins - FootTrax - GeoFaex Regular and LE - Scott-N8ZUS - Cache or Die Trying Silver & Gold - Blue Canary - Team S&B - Haughtons Hunters - Always Looking Being packed now and hopefully all out by tonight: - mtn-man Admin Brick Going out immediately after the bricks, tonight & tomorrow: - Nebraskache Geocorn
  23. I know about the code thing and I am following up. I thought the codes were loaded a few weeks ago but apparently not. Give it a bit and as soon as I can contact Mike we'll make sure they are loaded. Thanks.
  24. The 'debris' that is seen are actually air bubbles and the most common cause is the temperature used when setting the enamel. You are correct that black seems to show them more readily but it can happen in any color. Some metal types are less prone to it than others. The optimum temperature range is only a couple of degrees. Very rarely will there actually be foriegn matter in the enamel, almost all enamel work in done in clean rooms, at least in my experience.
