@whitby:

 

need a pink one (sepp and berta)?

Have a look in my tradelist and/or pm me in the german green forum...

 

Cheers

Peter

 

 

 

 

 

I shot it and when it arrives in a week or so I probably own a Purple haze in gold and one in nickel :huh:

 

lets wait and see...

 

Btw: I think I'm also nearly complete with my TQ collection, that means I own all TQ's from that I know that they exist (except the Bronze mismint) : 30 different plus the nickel purple haze I'm waiting for....

 

But who knows... :huh:

 

Cheers Peter

 

I'm really curious what you will get. Tell us, please!

 

I'm not yet satisfied with my collection. Still missing some of the older ones and the XLEs

And of course the pink one. But I could successfully resist the allure. Simply not my colors :)

Yes, that's true, I also own a "Purple Haze" in gold finish, but I saw a coin in a eba* auction looking exactly like a purple haze but in nickel finish, the picture looks like nickel and the description says also nickel.

that is so exciting. so it is possible. i was beginning to think it was not.

 

i have 13 versions now and my the purple haze in going out tomorrow, is the nickel version. i have another coming in, but i don't know what it is. probably don't need both versions i guess.

 

still looking for the blue is my world. my heart's desire.

Hi,

 

today my Purple Haze NICKEL, number 31 of my TQ-collection, arrived. So it's for sure that the Purple Haze exists in both nickel and gold.

That one exists. I have it as well. I think it is a copper coin with black enamel. I'm at work already, but I can check tonight.

thanks! that looks like copper and black nickel, like the luxury edition but with copper - how cool! another to add to the list.

 

black nickel looks very different than black enamel, so i am pretty sure this is black nickel. i compared the black widow with black enamel with my luxury edition and they are completely different materials.

 

thanks again!

I'm not so sure. There is some translucent enamel. But I don't know, what is underneath. Maybe we should ask Castle Man.

@Whitby :

 

you are right. It's not Black Nickel, it's a kind of enamel...

 

@matlock75:

 

The Bronze mismint is not the only coin that completes your collection, there must be one more. My collection consists of 31 different without the Bronze mismint...

take out your luxury coin, black and gold and compare the two. enamel leaves a smoothness the black part of the luxury doesn't have. that's why i am thinking black nickel. the detail is too precise, not as if it was under an enamel.

 

this is fun!

I did it. I just compared the Black/Gold and the Copper/nickel with a magnifying glass with led-lights (call me crazy :anibad: ). After a few minutes of examining the Black from the Copper and the Gold it looks identical to me..... Now I do not have the slightest doubt: it's enamel.

Lara,

Just for the record-

Dictionary: obsessed (əb-sĕss'ed-)

Adj.

Compulsive preoccupation with a fixed idea (Tranquility geocoins) or an unwanted feeling or emotion, often accompanied by symptoms of anxiety. (Finding and possessing all Tranquility geocoins)

 

:anibad:

 

I just couldn't resist! You should have ran while you had a chance when you first started thinking about collecting geocoins!

LOL! but the black on the gold and black (luxury) looks like NICKEL! not enamel. where's CM when you need him. i could be wrong, it occasionally happens.

So, I had a closer look at both of them.

The Luxury (BN/Gold) is clearly two-tone w/o enamel.

The black/copper one is filled with translucent soft enamel. I assume that the metal underneath is black nickel as well. That may be what dabbscher wanted to say. Both BN, but one filled with enamel.

Hmm...

You may be right. Black Nickel looks different. More shiny.

The black/gold and black/copper look identical. But the cavities are filled in the copper one.

THE MAN HAS SPOKEN:

 

From the CM himself = and this explains how we are all correct - sorta.

 

>>They are both two tone. Black Nickel and gold and the other is Black Nickel and copper but the Black Nickel and copper has an epoxy coating over it and the Black/Gold does not<<

 

that is why the N/C looks as if there is something filling in the gaps - it is epoxy! and lara was right because it IS black nickel.

 

now, doesn't that work out well!

 

lara adding this to her tranq database.

 

and now i am off for a few days. no wonder caching was particularly difficult this past weekend. OW!

I love the Tranquility geocoins too, but only have a couple myself. I didn't realise there were quite SO many versions!

 

I would love to see a photograph, or two, of a "Full Set" (or a "nearly Full Set" :sad: ) ...

Could any of you serious collectors oblige, please?

i have two incoming, have decided NOT to collect the glow editions, so i am missing just one, or two if there really is an antique bronze.

 

if someone has that AND the antique gold, please post a pic so we can see the difference. and perhaps settle the confusion that there is indeed an antique bronze.

 

thanks!
