Civil War Series Geocoins

Recommended Posts

Due to the glitch on cointracking.com, I will incur an extra .30 per coin sale from paypal, due to this I am suspending sales for the time being.

I will have another option as soon as possible.

 

Thanks

If I may be so bold, how are sales going? The quest to make a reasonably priced series of geocoins is a noble venture, and I hope that it will be able to continue. I clicked on your link above, and the civilwargeocoins.com site looks like a nice start.

You may be so bold, have about 600 sold on cointracking.com, 200 through the very simple site I set up, die art is in the works and monies sent to minter in the morning.

Still plenty left though, I hope that when they hit the caches, more will sell.

Buy Now!!! :P

I'm eager to see the samples of these.

 

Got these in while in West Virginia last week, will get delivery time in the next day or so, and gave the go ahead on the next two, which I will wait until they are in hand to sell.

The one pic is clearer, but the detail is similar to the Nevada Coin.

ummm ...

 

is it "Sumter" as it is on the coin, or is it "Sumpter"?

 

It is Sumter. I have family that has lived there for as long as I can remember. As a matter of fact my granddad use to have a pig farm just on the outskirts of town.

Quick update,

First two coins will be in my hands around the 13th, I will ship them as quick as I can, should not take longer than two days to get them all out, as I have labels and packaging ready.

The next two in the set are in progress, but I will not presell them, when I have them, I will sell them. I will do the rest of these coins the same way, I don't want them going through Wyoming to get here!!!!!

Thanks

UPDATE

 

Just got word that first two coins shipped from mint April 10.

I have labels ready and will just need to sort, this weekend is Easter so that may slow things down. I am going out of town Tuesday April 18th, and will have them all shipped before then, but will not have interent access for three days. I will post here when they are all shipped.

 

The next two coins should be ready in 2-3 weeks, and I went ahead and gave the go ahead on the final 6 this morning. I will NOT presell any more of the coins, when they are in hand, I will sell.

 

Those of you who bought LE's of the first two, will be given first dibs on the LE's. Watch your email for a notification through cointracking.com.

All coins ordered by April 11, 2006 went into the mail on Monday, April 17, with the exception of three international orders.

Again I will be out of town until Friday night, and will not have any email access.

Coins 3 & 4 should arrive while I am gone, and will go on sale at that time.

Thanks

I think he said before that previous customers get first shot at new coins. I'm going out of town as well and am not sure how reliable my internet access is going to be. Hmmmm...

Has anyone tried to retrieve your activation code yet? It said my code did not exist in the database. If anyone got theirs to work, let me know and I'll try again.

I know about the code thing and I am following up. I thought the codes were loaded a few weeks ago but apparently not. Give it a bit and as soon as I can contact Mike we'll make sure they are loaded. Thanks.

Yes, but let's not confuse Sumter with Ft. Sumter, which is off the coast of Charleston!

 

Great coins. I've already put in an order for them. Looking forward to the rest of the series.

I have not been able to contact who I need to get the activation codes loaded online.

 

So... and I may regret this... if you need a code you can email me either through my profile or direct rusty at personalgeocoins.com

 

I know they will be online within 24-48 hrs but if you need it right now just drop me an email and I'll try to be as quick as I can.

I received my Civil War Coins today and they look great!! I only have one question about them. Could you not have made the tracking number smaller? I was able to read them with a low powered microscope. :unsure::huh::)

Hmm, not sure that I will be buying anymore coins. Have to wait for the light of day to really get a look at them. I ordered the LEs and I can't read the numbers nor see the picture on the back of the coins.

Thank you Rusty for getting me the activation #'s, the coins look great and the icon is sharp!!! Can't wait for the rest of the series.

I got mine today as well. :laughing:

 

I noticed that the Ft. Sumter tracking numbers are much easier to read than the Manassas coins were.

Hopefully this can be fixed for the rest of the series.

Got mine too, Thanks Rusty

 

Dont have a regular pewter to compare the two but.....

I think the backside lots alot of detail with the satin gold color on the LE.

 

However price is Great and Hope to get one out in the wild soon! :laughing:

OMG! A seperate icon for each coin? That's just silly, especially since it's the same icon with a different number on it. Is this really necesary? Now what if I miss on 5&6, there'll be a gap in my numbers, so I'll just have to stop buying anymore after that so my icons don't go 1234789 10 and so on. On the bright side, these coins are really beautiful. I can hardly wait to get the activation codes... but I'll wait, no need to make anyone search out the numbers when I can do it when I get home sunday.

Got my coins today, just activated them (Thanks Rusty), Love them.

Agree that the tracking number on coin #2 is a bit hard to read.

Will be ordering more, Thanks Again!!

I just noticed on my coins that the artwork and the coins aren't the same. The coin has a cannon on it but the soldiers' hats are missing.

Received coin #1 and 2 today... but we have a few questions:

 

1. What's the mess pointed out by the red arrows? It looks like the battle scene is spilling out onto the outer ring.

2. Do these look "Misty Gold" like we paid for?

Funny, to each his own I guess. I too noticed that the scene spills onto the ring. And, to make a stereo photography analogy, it violates the stereo window. But I like the effect. I think it adds additional depth to to the coin. and probably in a way that could not be obtained by pressing the full depth into the planchet.
