Gregson, I took the initiative of condensing your photos into one and removing distracting background stuff. Still lots of interesting details with less real estate used. :)

What is the name of this coin and is it available somewhere?

Maybe you should remove the tracking numbers?

<_< - yes, the detail is good - as can easily read the tracking numbers. Opps.

i got this one not too awfully long ago, but it has taken forever to get it shot. the one and only, well, one of 15 tranquility, blood in the ocean. same as the USA gold but with a red center.

Interesting that the numbers are noticed in the smaller version of the pics posted by the coins' owner. Just goes to show that more detail can be appreciated in a smaller image. :D:P:rolleyes:

I had posted this in another thread the other day, but I just got an email from Kate, the bell witch, and she was saying that her and her pals never saw the post and they were worried I had not gotten it.

 

I dont want to make Kate mad - I shudder at this thought :blink::blink: - so I am pasting the original post here in hopes that she and her pals do see it.

 

Thank you again so much, mystery gifter!! I am still admiring this coin!

 

--------

 

I was sitting in the living room this afternoon when my wife walked in the door with mail in her hand. The look in her eyes told me that I had done something wrong. I started going through the mental checklist of Husbandly duties to see if I missed something:

 

Complement her hair....check

Take notice of all she does for the family....check

Tell her that she is my soulmate.....check

Worked last weekend on the honey-do list.......well

 

All of the sudden, my thought process was interrupted by a shiny gold package with no postmark that she placed in my hand.

 

I looked up...yep - I was still getting the Look

 

"Really honey, I don’t know what this is," I said.

 

I was getting nervous....did I order another coin and forget about it? Did I order one in my sleep? I carefully opened the package...all the time wondering what this might be and why I was getting it. I know that I am getting older....was my memory failing me?

 

I slowly reached into the envelope...all the time with my beautiful wife glaring at me...and that is when I pulled out:

 

Carpe Diem #103!

I dont know who sent this, but I am so happy and thankful. This is my first mystery coin and is now officially my favorite. It is such a beautiful coin. Thank you so much!!!

 

Now all I need to do is go find a magazine for my wife with the story, "What should you do when you suspect your husband of being a geocoin addict!"

 

-or-

 

"So he says he got a mystery coin, what does that mean?"

Thank you so much! These are beautiful. I now officially have 3 mystery coins that are tied to be my favorite. :)

 

I love my Bell Witch and Carpe Diem coins. I have them with me all the time to remind myself to seize the day and to enjoy the mystery and unusual in life. I would love to have a Cache Reaper as it also one of my favorite coins!!

Quite a good week so far - still expecting 2 troy and spacegate coins, but today the swiss customs ripped me off on one lot of coins.

Ended up paying half of what the coins had cost - a quarter of that was actual tax for the coins, the other 75% was for 'service'. So I basically paid money that could have bought another 2-3 coins, to have the people at swiss customs cut open the envelope and then not seal up the giant hole they had made. So I'm quite annoyed right now but at least all the coins managed to stay in the envelope.

Yesterday, I received a special coin in the mail, special not only because of who sent it, but because it reminded me of a happier time.

 

IMG-1-1.jpg

 

This little angel, dressed in green, immediately reminded me of an angel my wife and I had purchased while on our 10 year anniversary trip to Italy. One of the tours was of a Murano glass factory in Venice. We purchased a small glass angel that we actually had watched being made. Kathy's favorite color was green.

 

Thank you for sending me such an important geocoin! Below I added a picture of the coin with the statue, and a picture of the coin and statue on a special base, on which it rests. There's an optical illusion where you either see a vase, or a person's profile. The stand you see pictured was made using a lateral profile from a picture I have of Kathy...the profile is hers.

I was searching for something in this topic and I noticed a coin which seems to have a horse on it. It's the one on the top right corner. Could you post an other picture of this coin drneal? :rolleyes:

It's the Hazard/perry County 2010(?) but It's hidden away in an album...I'll keep looking

I really like that stand... was it made by somebody that you know? My grandpa taught me how to use a lathe when I was around 14.... you can really make some neat stuff with one of those. The coin has a very close resemblance to the glass angel. Nice one!

I finally got my wish. I received in trade a Mystery Turtle black nickel and white. I wanted to do cartwheels outside but there was too much snow so I just jumped around the house like a crazy woman. I am so thankful to have received this awesome coin. Thanks for the trade!

 

Gefeliciteerd!! Congrats!!

OOH I Am So Happy For You:) God Bless You!. There is so many wonderful people out there. I have my share of many sad days. CRY! Mom is not doing so well. I got to see her smile when she was blessed with the angel Pin and Geocoin. Seeing her smile was priceless. I cannot thank EyeD10T enough. You have a beautiful soul.
