Yes and no.

 

Reservations are full and there is a wait list. People have until the 6th to convert their reservation to an order, or let me know to hold their coins.

 

Right now 92% of reservations have converted. There is a wait list for about 40 coins. I will work my way through the wait list by date as coins become available.

Ah yes - sorry. Convert means to convert a reservation to an order.

 

I picked up the coins from FedEx tonight and I'm working my way through the coins right now.

 

Its just too cool to see a sea of Bluebonnets scattered across the floor!

Since I know some people get anxious about shipping here's the process:

 

- Your order must clear before I can ship (checks, etc.).

- Domestic orders placed before 1/26 will ship by 1/30.

- Domestic orders placed after 1/26 will ship by 2/6

- International orders will ship around 2/6

- Trades will ship around 2/6

- Reservations that have not been converted to orders will be released 2/6.

- Extensions can be made, but I gotta know what's going on.

The following people should contact me within 1 week to keep their reservation. If you no longer wish for your coins, also please let me know. The folks on the wait list are looking hungry!

I got my coins today - very nice! :mad:

Where do I get the activation code?

It was included, my coin was wrapped in a white card with the activation code.

 

I picked up the envelope and thought "Did I order three?" (figured I had only ordered 2) and when I opened it I was surprised at how large the coin is! Very nice, crake, glad I ordered one of these.

The activation is on the white cardboard that was stapled over the coins.

 

I would say that these were the best packaged coins I have ever received. The coins are very, very nice too. Chris did a good job with these.

If you ordered 1 or 2 coins, the code is on the inner wrapper. If you ordered 3 or more, the code is on a white card inside of the bubble mailer. It may stick when you dump the coins out, so take a peak before you toss!

 

BTW, I found a coin with no corresponding number on my activation sheet which means I accidently mailed the sticker - whoops! If you are the lucky person who got an activation code that doesn't match your coin, let me know and I'll get you the right code.

 

Mailing update: All domestic paypal orders have shipped. International, trades, and orders placed by check are scheduled to go out next week.

Yup - some people think 2" is too big though. At 2.5oz they sure are heavy!

I'm one of those people. I love the coins so don't misunderstand, but there's nothing that's in this design that wouldn't look just as nice if not nicer on a 1.75" coin. So I do hope you'll consider going a little smaller on some of your other designs :grin:

Whew - looks like the 1 and 2-coin packages are making it ok. I can't throw the USPS very far, so I don't really trust them :ph34r:

 

Regarding coin size. Tracking Time will be 2" but there's a lot of detail that really needs the size. Other designs are going to be either 1.75" or 2" - mainly due to cost. When you go to 2" costs all go up, material, shipping, shipping again, etc.

We got ours today and really appreciate the trouble you went to in packing the coins. They arrived safely and are the centerpeice of our small collection.

Yipee! I'm like a nervous parent. Of course NONE of this could happen without you guys! This is such an awesome hobby. Speaking of which, you know you're into geocaching when you pack your bags for a business trip and make sure to remember your GPSr :ph34r:

I gotta e-mail you later since one of the coins I got has (what I think) is a wrong activation code. The code is only 5 digits and I've only ever seen 6 digit activation codes. I don't have the info here at work, so I'll send off an e-mail when I get home.
