I just don't know what to do...

 

of course you do! you keep working and get your mail when you can. it will be waiting for you.

Maybe not...If it doesn't fit in the PO Box, they only hold it so long before they send it back. Anyway, I thought the problem might be solved for me, and it has. When I got back to the truck, there was a message that I have been released from that fleet, so I should be headed to the Box any day now. Perfect timing. I just hope they can keep me busy now.

 

i hope so too! make hay while the sun shines and all that stuff.

Not today but two days ago I got a box and an envelope. The box was fro O'Dell it had a nice cup with hot chocolate, a Santa cookie, a nice can of old Fasioned Hard Candy, keychain, postcards, but the best was a path tag and puppy pound cache buddies. The envelope was a trade in it was Alabama 2008 flower, The Maneki Neko Geocoin which would be great for my animal fram. Thanks for the coins.

AND, WSR, I'm sure that everything will work out for you all you need is Faith, Hope and Patience ( I know, won't pay the bills - But you'll do Alright)

 

Let me tell you a little about faith hope and patience....it's all bull pucky! I've kept the faith, I've been patient and I hold out hope, nothing makes a difference and nothing matters.

 

But, I do hope the very best for you Robert!

Havn`t had any coins for weeks :D

 

And yesterday this was in my mailbox

:laughing::rolleyes::lol::cool:

 

Don`t now what was in the envelope, but i suspect it could be a geocoin even though i don´t expect any coins. It could even be coins i ordered long tima ago and forgot that i ordered it.

 

\h

 

What a bummer! It's happened to me before as I'm sure it's happened to others as well.

 

And that's why we DON'T just throw the coin into a regular envelope and mail it off. And if you HAVE to do that, PLEASE mail the coin securely to the envelope.

If this came from where I think it came then it did not contain any coins.

 

I´ll try to get more info on this.

It shouldn't be too hard to track down the sender...It's postmarked Indianapolis, Indiana(??) on November 25. It's sad to see that one, but you gotta admit that it's funny that the only surviving bit is the postage and the address. That's a good reason to include an address on the inner envelope that contains the coin itself. I may start doing that. I'm sorry for your loss.

 

I guess there's no way to ever tell if it was theft at the Post Office, or in your Mailbox, or if it was jammed in the machine. For letters that are damaged in the postal system in the US, they usually come with a note explaining so, and the delivery person wouldn't have left it like that...That makes me wonder if you need to keep a close eye on your mailbox??

WSR you are so correct - damage in the US Postal system they seem to be very dilegent to attach stickers or put on the envelope when something happens in the process to damage the envelope. Now - if it is NOT damaged and lost for years - another story - but damaged........they usually own up to it.

 

This is a shame but I wondered too if it was a pathtag vs. geocoin. Also another thing which stood out to me is no customs ticket. Although in an envelope - "anything which feels like something" is what my postmaster has said needs a customs ticket. I trust the judgement and always do one - if it's a gift - what the harm?!

 

Again, a shame for the loss. Hope the mystery can be unfolded.

 

We all have suffered out losses. :D

Well - they are out and I got 10.

Which I'm hugging close...... No, I'm not trading at this stage....

 

2008 is almost at an end, but finally the NZ Kiwi geocoin hit my mailbox....

 

Coinside2600x400.jpg

gps.org.nz has told me that now the domestic sales are complete, that there will be going international, so I guess others will get them too....

 

In case you don't recognise it - that's a stylised kiwi - the national symbol of New Zealand.

 

OMG!!! :laughing: I HAVE to get one of these coins!!! How? Where? When?

 

CF30

 

Here's a link to the forum thread announcing the sale:

 

gps.org.nz - 2008 New Zealand Kiwi Coin

 

The post announcing international sales is near the bottom of the first page and was made on the 3rd.

 

I've got my order in! :D

WELL, EXCUSE ME. I was only trying to send some encouragement and hope along the way. It isn't always easy to wear a smile since it is expected of you especially when you are crying and dying a little each day inside. There are a lot of us who have had things go on with and to them. There are many, I'm sure, who don't show their emotions nor share them BUT we don't mind when others share.

 

On topic . . . nothing in the mailbox.

Well, the mail is not here yet but I got an e-mail in my e-mailbox. It was from geoswag and showed their pre-salesite and wohooo, my designed coins are up for sale!!!!

 

Geocoin - Starcatcher Gold (new) ,they come in two finishes and also in my own very limited edition for me to trade.

The picture of the nickel one looks blue but it is supposed to be purple. I think the coins came out very nice and are "holidayish" :laughing::D

 

Hope you like them too.

I've seen the photos ~ way to go!

Great to see an original geocoin, using a variation on a theme.

Beautiful in it's simplicity.

Sorry. Once again, I've allowed my true feelings to spill out onto the forums.

 

Oh, and to stay on topic....nothing yesterday.

Forget to mention that it was followed whit a note saying it was torn in the machine at Uppsala here in Sweden, so it´s not the mailman being a thief.

Maybe you couls see if they have a "Lost and Found" at the Post Office. Someone may have found the missing contents (on the floor, or in the machine)and placed it there??

wow! i don't know whether to jump up and down or hold on to my chair for dear life. while i was working on my coins, a 5.5 earth quake hit a few miles north of here. that is a pretty good rockin' n' rollin'. i knew what it was before it actually hit. you can hear one coming.

 

ANYWAY! i opened up an envelope, to me from me - wait i read about that - and thought, "oh look, a scorpio from maine" pathtag.

 

no, silly girl. that is a lobster pathtage! a mystery pathtag. don't know what i did to deserve that but thank you so very much generous sender.

 

AND a jellyfish in a christmas card. now i am really jumping up and down. two presents in one day! how cool is that. the jellyfish is a copper finish and is stunning.

 

thanks so much jellyfish Ed!

forgot to post this one from a couple of days ago. another piece of art we see here in the geocoin world. the geo bonefish from [D]22.

 

handmade, lost wax bronze and a hefty piece of metal. (colours are a little funky, but a pure lovely bronze)

 

it's all about aesthetics, the reasons for collecting.

 

thanks squareD!
