FINALLY MY OWN COIN!

Recommended Posts

Wow - I completely missed this cointest! LMAO Dave - you certainly run the best cointest!!!

 

Is it April already!?? Sh*(@! I thought we were still in January... does that mean I missed Valentines Day, our Wedding Anniversary AND my wifes birthday!? (All in Feb! :D)... That certainly explains why I'm now living in the garage... I was wondering what I had done... maybe I should get some flowers and chocolates on the way home... that will make it all better, right?

Its a good thing you dont have a dog house!!! :P ...Oh wait thats right, thats what we call the garage in situations like this!!! B)

 

You'd better get her a stamp set! Cheaper than flowers and Chocolate and you can stamp her a penny that says "I LUV U"......She'd probably stamp your foot and tell ya to hit the Garage! :D

 

My even thinking about doing that... I can see the divorce papers coming already.......... They're psychic remember! :D... I think thats the right word... but other may have other opinions about whether that is the correct word... I'm not saying any more... this is a fairly large hole I have dug... anyone have a ladder... the garage is dryer and warmer than this big hole I'm in... anyone? Help?*{see disclaimer below}

 

B)

 

* - disclaimer - these comments were not made by keewee is any way, shape or form. It was entirely someone else... personally I'd blame Dave for being a bad influence. It's all Dave's fault. Yep... that it...

Hey there 007BigD. I recieved the "Aprils Fools 2008" coin today in the mail.

WHAT AN AWESOME COIN Do not tell the Geocoin Secret Agent this but your

coin is tied for my favorite coin. Very cool! :):)

 

I got my punches on order and some Travel bug tags. I hope to get the punches before

the TBs' so I can make ya a little something.

 

Thanks again for this "cointest". We'll talk again soon!

 

-Dardevle-

 

And to quote you"Dardevle just wants Shiney stuff to make him feel better cause his quads Hydro-locked!!! "

is absolutley correct! I should be back to work within a week or two so that will draw my attention elsewhere! Although riding in the summer is a close 2nd. Later!! :)

Glad ya all liked your coins! :P Waddaya say...Way better than the 2-007 model -EH? :)

 

I ended up goin through 3 #501 pennies for #001 and having to finally stamp out a new 001 all in all...Same goes for the #003! So Now I got 2 pennyless April Fools coins for swag! Dang pennies just would not press in!!! Needless to say, they were in fact destroyed :) But i could still give 501 gang a mutilated #501 penny if thats OK with Tsun! :)

 

All pennies used for the making of the April fools coins were in fact from 1944 through 1946, so they are recycled shell casings gathered up from the Battlefields and battleships of WWII that were shipped back to the mint for copper pennies after the 1943 steel penny. :)

 

I also made a total of 10 coins all in all...I stamped out 10 just for mistakes and ended up numbering them before I hogged em out to press the pennies in! I was just gonna do #007 of em, but hey-I got em...Why Waste em???

Soooo I sent #008 off and have a request for another one if I happen to have one and I do!

That means that I have 1 left for anyone who may actually want one of these babies! :D ...There ya Go Avroair!!! 1st one to send me an email gets it! Although its not quite as perfect as the others...Looks like I may have had a drink or 2 when I stamped it! B) But then again arnt the Blems worth more??? :P

 

I cant even see the pics...Just IPB format shows up from here!!! :P

 

Till Next Year!!! :D

Got my punches in and decided to give them a try. I made seven "coins" last night. this is how they turned out. I also decided to use dimes. They fit really nice, then I peened the dime in so it is pretty secure. I am in the process of making a AEXOXOXO edition for you. :blink: Untill then, I'll get my first edition out to you monday morning. I should have some pics in the the package for you too. I have 3 spoken for and I'm not sure about the other 4. I'll figure something out. Anyway 007BigD , I thought I'd share with you.

What is the DD 3 on the dime?

Oh! why there are 2 tiny holes? It is from your try to put the dime in he washer?

 

I suppose this is going to be your new signature item? :blink:

The D D is short for Dardevle. And the 3 is the mint number! ;)

Those are not holes, they are punch marks to hold the dime in place. There are a couple

on the back also with another #003 stamped on the washer to match the # on the dime!

 

I figured 007BigD used pennies so I'd try the dimes. I'll use just the dime for caches and save the "coins" for trades!! :blink::(

Thanks kehunt64. It gives me something to do in the garage. :D And it is fun to do. And I get to have a few Bloody Marys. I use 1/4 inch and 1/8 inch punches. I wish I could take credit for the idea but I stole it from 007BigD. Hope you find the punches!!!!

3rd years a charm right?... NOPE! Following in suit of the economial crunch I am sorry to report that I Contacted the mint for remint and they destroyed my die :lol: I cannot afford the 6.99 for a new die SO, there will be no "Wolf" coin this year OR ANY year here after!

Besides, every year this time, the washer houses bulk up on 5/8" washers just to sell out in minutes! Sorry folks, say bye bye to this one :unsure: ....... :) So Sad :D Deal with it!
