Your thoughts please....

 

I've received alot of emails from you who have missed out on the Earth Turtle coins. I'm sorry, I do not have extras. I knew these would be popular but had no idea they would sell so overwhelmingly fast Thank you). So, the idea was tossed around today about a "pre-sale" for some more turtles. I want to know what you guys think? This gives everyone a chance to get some. I'm leaning toward a different metal altogether mint (BN/?) if we do this.....opinions, thoughts, suggestions. A decision will be made within a day or two on what will be done and I'll post to let you know what's up. So speak your mind...

That would make my day :unsure:

I would have loved to have gotten a couple of your coins but was tied up in a meeting all morning. Please mint some more. I too like the lighter colored metals - gold is my favorite, but I also like silver, copper, and bronze. Personally, I think a black nickel turtle would be too dark for the translucents to work very well. I LOVE :unsure: the picture of your gold turtle. The colors really seem to shine. This is a great coin in any metal! I guess that's why they went so fast.

I just snagged a pair of FSM coins! :unsure: so I don't need to trade my extra Turtles for them anymore.

 

Sooooo, I will have a couple extra Turtles available for trades. If anyone is interested, please send me an e-mail thru my profile.

 

(hope I clarified this post....)

Can a newbie coin person chime in with out getting automatically getting hacked to bits by the older, wiser crowd? o010.gif

 

I want to see a remint so people can enjoy this coin. I'd love for a shiny silver (would SO order that for myself) coin to make the colors pop like you ooh-aah-covet gold one, but I would hate to see a remint of the original metals.

 

Why? I got a couple extra for swaps since I had the feeling this would be popular. I'm new to collecting and having something "nice" to swap with is not easy to come by. There are a lot of past issues I'd like to swap for and a remint with presales of the original metals kinda kills my swap ability. This happened to me with another coin recently where it sold out and I bought extras to swap and the minter said "we are making more" and I had one person back out on a swap and another come back with "sorry, they are making more so I'm going to pass". I hope this does not come across as greedy (it probably does) but I'd like at least a chance to swap what I got.

 

I hope that made sense.

A pre-order, if done, will NOT be done in the original metal schemes. Thanks for writing and eveyone's opinion is valuable.

YES!! Doing black nickel sounds good, but not sure what would look good with it, most likely silver. I'll be checking back for pre-sale info.

I would not say you let me down with the FSM coins - you tried your best - noone can expect more than that... And today I found a geocachingdragon satin nickel at coinsandpins - so I'm all good :)

Edit for new info:

 

PRE-SALE NOW READY!

 

You can now order the Earth Turtle in shiny silver :) We liked this one best because it helps make the translucents 'pop-out.' On the back; the Earth will be done in blue and green glitters. These little guys will look so cute too and they are different enough from the two-tones to ensure they are special also but keep the two-tones in their own special category. I've even ordered some of these for myself! So check out the link to place your order and remember, you only have until Sunday night (7/29) 9:00pm MST to place your order.

 

Some important info: Since this is a pre-sale, please remember that you are looking at about a time frame of about a month or slightly more before receiving these coins. A new order must be placed and with mint delays due to being busy, it's just a matter of waiting for them to mint and get them shipped, so please be patient. I will keep you posted on any updates in the mean time. Thanks

Ooooh, secret turtles! :D

 

Are we going to be able to see this turtle when it arrives, or is it going to have a camo paint job so it is virtually invisible? :):):o

:) Just giving those of you interested in getting a turtle, a heads up :)

 

There IS going to be pre-sale for some more Earth Turtles!

 

Some of the details are still being worked out but I should have all the information some time later today. So, here are a few tidbits about what to expect :) This turtle will be minted in 1 metal (not a two-tone) and there will be a little bit of glitter added (not much...don't want to mess with those pretty translucents much). So, once I have all the details, I will post them here.

What she said, it will only let you put 1 in your cart. Larger numbers get this error.

 

"The quantity of <strong>The Earth Turtle<br>Shiny Silver<br>Trackable with Icon<br></strong>Preorder starts Now! that you are trying to order is greater than the quantity that we currently have in stock. We currently have 1 unit(s) of <strong>The Earth Turtle<br>Shiny Silver<br>Trackable with Icon<br></strong>Preorder starts Now! in stock.<br><br><br><a href="viewcart.asp"><img src="images/sample/pc_button_back.gif" border=0></a>"

Is there a limit on how many you can order. I was attempting to order three and it won't let me?

 

No, there is no limit....I'll have the girls at the Caching Place check it out, might be a little glitch.

 

tsun:)

 

I called TCP, they are aware of it and should be working on it shortly :o It was just a typo when setting up the pre-sale. so should be fixed shortly.

OK, I was trying to stay out of this, but my bitchy self just couldn't take it.

 

First, congrats on selling all of your coins, it's a feat these days.

 

With that said....

 

I cannot believe how many people came in here and talked about this sale being "good, with just a few minor glitches, a little frustrating, but over all went well "and so on. These were the same people in the coinsandpins.com sale of the FSM coin ripping them a new one for the SAME problems. If you're gonna bash one vendor for these issues you sure as heck better be bashing the other vendors when it happens to them. (For the record I don't think either should be bashed, crap happens, life goes on, hopefully they become aware of the issues and can get them fixed.) It just really irritates the crap out of me that ya'll can be so hypocritical. We all have our favorite vendors, but this is a showing to your character, and not a good one in my opinion. Maybe you were just really heated up after the C&P sale and calmed down by the time it happened again, that's understandable, but seems to me an apology is merited. Yes, they are friends of mine, but I wouldn't come in and bash even the vendors I don't care for the way some of you did.

 

Time to take a look and compare your posts... Maybe if you have that much disdain for a group or person, just stay out of that thread all together, cuz the contrast from there to here is nothing less than shocking.
