Can I Transfer Ownership Of A Geocoin?

Recommended Posts

I made a trade for a coin and the owner said that it was not activate. Well when I got it and tried to activate it I found out it already was activated. Anyone know if it's possible to transfer ownership of coins?

Yes, you can "adopt" it if you or the current owner have the "TBxxxx" number. You do it just like adopting a cache.

You mean the activation code not the tracking number right?

No, I mean the ID number that was assigned to it when it was activated. Should start with a TB and be 6 alphanumeric digits log.

 

Look on the coin's page and you'll see something like this:

 

Owner: Xxxx Xxx

Released: Saturday, December 10, 2004

Origin: Somewhere, United States

Use TBxxxx to reference this travel bug.

Just curious is the person you traded with the owner of the listing?It seems odd they fogot they activated it.

Looking back at our correspondence for this trade, I realize that it was never mentioned one way or the other. I guess it's my fault for assuming that it was unactivated. Here's the direct quote from the other party seeking the trade: "We are new to coin collecting and to this site. We are looking to trade our extra Green Subscriber coin for a Benchmark coin. "

Can a geocoin be adopted if the previous owner has put it into their collection?  I purchased an activated coin.  Can't seem to get the ownership corrected.  Thanks.

The prior owner has to initiate the process, using this page.
