Very nice coin - I'd like one. :laughing:

 

Is this a personal coin or was it produced by a group of MA cachers? Just wondering.

 

This is a state coin produced by me as there were no official MASS organization to sponsor a coin.

 

You done good. I have a design question about the samples. Is that a mix of imitation hard enamel and soft enamel. It looks really interesting, and I was curious about how it was achieved.

Depending on the price I'd be in for a couple of each metal too. Our personal coins should be in by then too so are you taking trades?

 

Hi Lady Bee!

 

I am not sure if I will be doing any trades at this time Since this is a state coin, My goal would be to have them all sold or released in to caches. If sales slow down or there are extras I may considering it as I was not able to get a club to sponsor for the coin and am doing it all myself.
