Thanks for the clarification, Dennis!

 

I will have to think about it again. Maybe I can pay for one and let it ship to my secret person directly :o I just hate to pay 6.50 for a coin and have to add nearly 8 $ for shipping! International shipping isn't cheap, but paying more for it than for the coin itself isn't a good deal :unsure:

 

(I know that this is not your fault, Dennis, it is just the standard "international shipping charge" of Geoswag which is OK if you order a lot of stuff but in my opinion is too much if you order just one or two coins... you have to pay an additional 5.25$ for shipping plus the normal shipping rate, and the last time I ordered a coin the postage on the mailer said 1.90$ :huh: So why do I have to pay nearly 8$ for it??? Sorry, I think that isn't fair. Geoswag does a great job otherwise, but I just hate this standard international shipping fee :lol: )

 

As for my mission, I am researching and trying to get the coins together that my secret person is looking for :o:ph34r:

I think that is a special one put together by Avroair and called Pirate's Plunder. Is it Ant. Gold?

Antique gold sounds right. Its a good sized coin...1 1/2 inches across, 1/8 inch thick. Its in a sleeve with an oakcoins label.

Yep sounds like it. I believe this coin uses dies from two previous Pirates of Harriman events.

Thanks much for your help! The pictures of Pirates of Harriman are on geocoincollection (Pirates Plunder says coming soon) you are exactly right, it uses dies from 2 previous coins....so many smart folks around here! :rolleyes:

Don't worry, I haven't mailed mine yet either ... the Bank Holidays this side of the pond make it senseless to try too much before the 2cnd! :sad:

 

Edit to add: Closing date is Jan 31st.

I'm hoping those folks that are getting missions in the mail are going to share what they got - good or bad? I for one would like to know if I'm doing a good job on these or not being that this is only my third time doing this.

Well, I thought it would be better to send out coins I knew you did not have, nor most likely have. Okay, so I did not hide too well. Glad to share the luck I had in getting into the coin projects, as well as an event group I am proud to be apart of... Hobo's Rule.

 

Glad you have added to your Geojelly collection

 

Happy New Years to all :P

I guess I'm in the early crew this time! I came home from the holiday to a mailbox full of mail and in it several packages. I opened up one that was addressed to me from me, and out popped five more packages:

 

wegemission002.jpg

 

So I kept opening! (It was like Christmas again!)

 

First out came a Netherlands bumpersticker coin.

And then, a Penguin gift tag coin.

The next package was bulky... I had to stop and think a sec, wondering what might be so bulky. Out came a Back to Caching coin and pin set, the only GC&PC set that I'm missing since I started my collection.

 

And then, the package wondering if the mission had _ _ _ _ _ ed up? Wouldn't you know it but a Golden Wood Screw. I think they knew the answer, there was no way they could have screwed up.

 

wegemission003.jpg

 

The only hint as to the identity of my secret mission sender was a Connecticut magnet. Now I have to wonder if they threw that in as a misdirection or a secret clue... Anyhow, thanks to my secret mission person, whoever you were... Probably the best I've ever come out of a White Elephant exchange yet!
