Wooden Nickel Trading

Recommended Posts

Just made a dozen or so new ATMouse wooden tokens. These are slightly different from my first set. I'm up for anyone for trading...

Just wanted to bump in on your trade discussions and ask what the oppinion was of those who leave thier sig. items in a cache.....

 

Do you leave them there with the purpose of someone trading them out or for the owner of the cache?

I leave them for whoever gets there first. <_<

The worst thing is if nobody takes them and they just sit.

 

<_< I'd have to agree, sometimes I'll leave two if I really like the cache. :wacko:

 

I take them as I like to collect sig items. I only have a few I have found in caches. Since there is no possible way I can afford to mint a coin maybe I should try to make a wooden coin set. I got one coin in a cache that seems to have a sticker on the surface. What is your opinion of this compared to one that has been stamped?

Ms Piggy and Cookie Monster are no longer available due to the two members leaving the team and requesting everything pertaining to them be removed from circulation.

 

Thanks!

 

So does that make my complete set that much more valuable :laughing: ?

 

Lol... only a few are in circulation, so I guess that would be a yes! ;)

Anyway...

 

Just updating my received list.... thanks to all!

- 3bunts

Look for my custom Signature Coolection page soon... (Yes, I spelt collection wrong on purpose... sounds better as coolection.

I collect sig items too. In fact I'll grab almost anything that has another players name on it. I used to like the inked nickels best, printed or screened, but the ones with the stickers can have much more detail and color. Hand made ones are really the coolest. People take the time and put effort into making them, and they turn out really nice. Sculpys are cool too.

Eventually I will, making mine mostly by hand.. stamping the dragon then hand-doing the reverse. Then sealing with lacquer spray.

 

I doubt anyone would care for them (shrugs) but who knows. I'll post here when I get the pics up.

Silly! How do you think I do mine? It's all by hand. Give us all a heads up when you are done.

Sheesh, since Shootie seems to want trades so badly :unsure: I'll see what I can do.

 

Sorry they are gifs, my server is having jpg issues. Obviously there are 3 of us in Team NR, the dragon is the flip side of our coins. And I have some others that I may be making wooden nickels for later this month or Nov. They like the dragon & I got the last stamp with no more coming in, hehehe. :huh:

 

One thing is the sizes vary, I was only able to get a few 3"-ers & more of the 2.5"-ers. If you have a preference I'll try to accomidate. If you only want a certain name, I'll try again. Certain numbers or no numbers I cant promise at this moment, after the 1st of Nov I may be able too so I'll let anyone know that if they ask.

 

I'll probably be changing them slightly in their next run, think I'll drop the flag & use the room for something like dates or states. The numbers are just my run numbers, not tracking.

Any suggestions, comments, complaints, let me know.

Well, after almost 4 yrs of GCing, I FINALLY ordered my first set of wooden nickels. I got tired of trading items (a while ago, actually), and have been searching for something unique to drop off. I will reveal my coins as soon as they arrive! Hopefull,y next week.

Actually, I've been working on a display like the one 57 Chevy made. I think my frame is way too big and now I need to fill it up. :unsure: I'm working on a real jaw dropper! Getting close. I'll post some pics of it when I get it done.

:) I haven't checked the wooden nickel traders lately and I see that there are a few new traders. If we haven't traded yet contact me and we'll set it up. I am looking forward to seeing what the OldSoldiers looks like, and would definitely like to do a trade. :unsure:

We have wooden nickels to trade :)

 

Haven't seen you post in a while, and I don't think we've traded yet. Geocaching.com seems a little slow this morning and I cannot e-mail you thru your profile until it clears up. But you can look for my e-mail soon.

stupid frickin laptop.. grrr

 

okay, as I was saying.. I messed up on the sizes I had listed in my last post when I said they were 2.5" & 3" ers. I got some more blanks today & they have the sizes on them of 1.5" & 1.75".

Yah yah, whip me with a wet noodle. heh.

 

So I'm gonna edit my post of my coins, if you didnt want to trade cause of size issues 8-O

well, its fixed now so let me know, gonna be making a new batch but not changing the style quite yet.

Gulp... sorry! I promise to weigh, if any of you still want to trade...

 

Goodness, it wasn't that big a deal for me - I have a PO Box. I'm just thinking it's not a bad idea for folks to weigh a package if they have any doubt.

 

I appreciate that I have several of these very cool wooden tokens to put out for our local collectors. Thank you!!!

 

Using this as an excuse to bump this higher... :blink:

 

Anymore trades out there?

BUMP.......

 

Any one still trading?

 

Yep, but we traded already! :tired:

 

How can we attract some new cachers to wooden nickel trading?

 

Darn, down to page two again.

 

How comes everybody doesn't have a wooden nickel to trade? :):blink::)

 

Just wishful thinking. Always looking for more traders.

Ya know...maybe we ought to start a new thread...something attractive and seductive about sig items. :)

 

At least for me, it's about all sig items, not just wooden tokens. (If you have my wooden..ummm.. dollar, you know why I call them "tokens".)

 

So...how can we encourage others to develop sig items? Ideas?

You might be right, ATMouse. I've received some interesting tokens/swag items along with my nickel trades. Personal geocaching business cards, keychains, buttons, sculpies, plastic stars, poker chips, post cards, carabiners, bottle openers, etc........... And I appreciate every trade I've made, thank you all.

 

But all I have to trade right now are our personalized wooden nickels.

 

I guess our little corner of the geocaching world will grow as the geocaching adventure grows. Welcome all newbies!

 

I may have a non-trackable geocoin available in the near future. But that's a different thread altogether, and probably not one for this forum at all. You know the rules.

 

Enough rant for today.
