^v^ Coin

Recommended Posts

We just received these pictures of our coin. They look great, but we asked for no color and they added color to the GC Logo. We think if there is going to be any color, then color all of the background on both sides of the coin black. We also still think no color would look good too! What do y'all think?

Just received this:

 

Hi Tim,

Painting more of the coin would add to the price, and IMHO I do not

think it would look as good with anything else colored even if you left

this part painted.

 

In looking closer I see what they did, I had intended for the blocks of

the gc square to be raised with the logo recessed into them. They did

the opposite and raised the logo and recessed the blocks.

 

You can add more color if you want but I don't think it would add

anything to the look. I see three options.

 

- Leave the paint in the gc logo and I recommend not painting anything

else.

 

- Have them remove the paint, I still think the boxes will look good but

you might want to request a new sample, that may take a week to get.

 

- Remove the paint, then have them reverse the way the gc boxes are and

produce a new sample, that will take about a week to ten days just like

the first sample.

 

It's your coin and you must be happy with the way it looks, I don't want

to push you into deciding one way or the other. Is everything else on

the coin ok? I thought they did a great job on the horse.

my opinion for what its worth, no color would be better. I think the black in the GC logo takes away from it, but thats me.

The Coin looks beautiful and black is a neutral color, so it doesn't attract attention!

 

It is like Rusty wrote..."It's your coin and you must be happy with the way it looks."

 

So take one choice............. :D

No color! Go with the way you originally wanted (or at least what Rusty suggested about recessing the logo).

 

My humble opinion

 

Rusty is right - the horse is awesome!

We decided to go with this option... hopefully it doesn't take a week to get a new sample!

 

We'll keep y'all posted!

We are sold out of our 200 bronze editions and are currently taking trade offers only (none will be sold) on our 100 silver editions (less than half of those are left due to confirmed trades and we are keeping some to drop in caches and give away at events). To see what we are looking for (besides personal coins), see our Coin Tracking link in our signature. Thx!

 

Like we posted earlier, we are looking for the coins to be here in about 2 weeks. At that time there should be less than a 24 hour turn around as we have everything prepped and ready to go for shipping.
