Today I received 4 Geocoin Fairy's and 2 Geocoin Devil's. The others within the past month (except mine and Sasquatch). Most of these mystery coiners and several mystery pathtaggers have posted will attend notes at GC2C575. If they cannot attend I have most their coins (and others) to donate. :D

Wow... I don't know what to say here...

 

I "RARELY" if ever post to this thread because very rarely do I ever receive any coin mail. I have to tell you all a little story here. About a month ago, I went on a mission to track down and put back into circulation, some coins that were missing from caches around my area of town. SO... after I did some cache maintenance, I 'retrieved' all the coins I found and posted a note to each one of them that I had recovered their geocoin from the vast unknown (more or less, but not exact verbiage).

 

So I go retrieve the mail this afternoon and there is a bubbler addressed to me, from someone I have never heard of before. Inside the bubbler was a very VERY classy stationary envelope with my name written on it. On the reverse of the envelope was a wax seal... and I'm thinking to myself "Who still does this?"

I open up the envelope (not disrupting the wax seal) and reveal this beautiful note which reads:

 

Jim,

Thanks for saving my geocoin. here is another for you to do with what you wish.

Jef

"SNSpencer"

 

I'm thinking to myself... how flippin' cool is that??

 

letter.jpg

 

Having said that... I just want Mr. Spencer to know that his gift had truly taken me aback, and I am most appreciative of the gesture :)

 

This was not a mystery coin, nor was it any type of popularity contest - it was straight up thoughtfulness - and that's the best gift of all...

Congratulations Jim and Bravo SNSpencer :)

WOW Jim!!! Congratulations!!! Amazing gesture!!! Of course what you have done with the caches and the coins is great too! :wub:

 

Oh my!!!! Wax seal!!! I have some very old metal seals that you were using with wax to leave the mark.... but I tried with the Spanish wax (at least that is how we call the strange red thing that looks like wax...) but I didn't have success! :) I do not know .... The mealt seals I have are from the Ottoman period! On them it is arabic writing (Turkey started using the latin alphabet in 1923 or 1930)! I have given then to someone to see what they write but since they are for wax, they are upside down... it is very difficult to read! So only if you have the writing on the wax you can read it! :wub:

 

BTW.... isn't that an amazing thing to see nowdays? It is so formal, so unique... :) It really takes you back in the 1600's, 1700's!!! I love it!!! :)

i must be dense, but i don't understand what you meant by track down and retrieved. you found the original coins somewhere and retrieved them from people that had them? and put them back into caches?

so what was your question? you quote the bit about rene wanting particular colours.

 

It's really more my astonishment than a question....that the person has been given one version of a beautiful mystery coin, & now is asking for the other two versions? :unsure: Is that what's happening here? I just really can't imagine doing that myself.....

Here's my haul for the month of September. The top row is from Geocoinfest. 11 Purchases + 2 Gifts = Total Geocoin Rapture! :ph34r: What a month!!!!

That penguin (made by coiner in the UK) inspired my moon dipper which led to tribal sun which led to taptap which led to zeezee...which is also in your picture :D. Hence, without that penguin, there would be no zeezee. Just some fun facts for ya :(

i think we read the same message in different ways.

 

i don't see where she said has this coin, and it doesn't sound as if rene understands it is a "mystery" coin as she asks where you could find one and if she could, she would travel to the u.s. to find one at the event.

 

it might just be a language thing.

Hi,

 

i love to collect mystery coins.(I´m a collector) And if i see some new versions i try to find out how i can add them to my collection.

Right now i have over 50-60 Mystery coins in my collection and i would love to add some more.

Why i should not try to say that i´m interested in the versions i not have jet?

 

Best regards René

Received 29 activated and 1 unactivated coins. Was supposed to be 30 unactivated coins. Grrr :blink:

I wonder if you can post the sellers name in the coin buyer/seller thread? At least so others may be aware of them. Are all of the coins activated to one person or would they be a coin thief? Be sure to say something to eBay if that is where they came from. I think I saw them listed.
