"Shadow" coin

Recommended Posts

I came across a picture of "The Shadow" coin. It seems to be a new version of the old coin that is only found in Indiana cemeteries. Has anyone else come across one yet?

The Shadow coin isn't The Phantom Cacher coin. Two totally different coins. Just look up both on one of the coin trading sites and you will see the difference. The shadow coin has long been on my want list, but until I get to Indiana....guess I'll keep pining for it lol I haven't seen or heard about a new one until now. Do you have a picture of it Joranda?

Did you search the ISQ caches?

 

I would love to get one of these coins looked all day at MWGB last year with no luck!

It seems like there are more and more of these Mystery Coins popping up all over. Very cool.

 

We managed to persuade the Geo_Leprechaun to visit the Florida Panhandle, I wonder if we can get any of the others to stop by...

Yep, you gonna see a lot of copy cat mystery coins. Only a few are true mystery coins :rolleyes: .

Last year unfortunately I didn't have much time for caching at the Bash but I did manage to see a couple that were found. This year will be different and I hope to cache a lot and maybe find one of these little beauties!! Very nice coin -- both versions!

Anyone else find it funny that cav scout found a shadow coin at gcvkdx and didnt log it, than the phantom logs a find at gc101kz, yet in his log posted the coords for gcvkdx and shows pictures of that cache while trading his phantom coin for a shadow coin....hmm...interesting!!!!!

Actually, I work with Capt. Howdy. I can assure you that this account is not a sock puppet. He just values going out to find caches more than logging them on a computer.

Cav Scout - I think you should edit your post to read 'in my opinion'

 

And pray - just what in your opinion are the only true mystery coins?

 

The Shadow coin is certainly a mystery to me -as are all the others ;)

YIPEE, WE ARE SO GLAD YOU FOUND ANOTHER ONE MARKY, CONGRADS.....It is one beautiful little coin. We still havent lost hope in finding one some day. We still are a little bummed with just missing one this year while in Indiana for MWGB. We were so close but yet so far away. The Shadow is probably been making his rounds since it seems so fitting since Halloween is just around the corner.

 

Hope you do rest up and get some sleep, your work is cut out for you already for today.

P.S. Shadow keep up the good work and all of your helpers too.

We were in the area of a few caches today and decided to do some cache maintenance while we were over by them. Both of the caches are MSQ's and hadn't been visited in awhile so we wanted to check and make sure they were still there and that there was plenty of swag and everything was dry. Our second stop of the day was Michigan Spirit Quest #21 - Battle of the Bulge GC1DVA2. I was pulling out some of the less desirable swag in the container when I pulled out the Shadow Coin. I couldn't believe what I had in my hand. I had seen pictures of this new Shadow Georgia coin but now we had found one by pure luck. They are awesome looking and I love the detail on the back. I wanna give a big thanks to the shadow for swinging up into Michigan and dropping off at least one in a cache.

 

So yeah Mark you are going to have to step up your ISQ caching because they have definitely migrated north and made it into Michigan now.

I stepped it up early this morning on my way to work in Toledo, OH. About fainted on my third or fourth SQ cache when the Georgis Spirit Quest Coin fell out on the ground.... This one was found in Ohio... I heard that they have been found in Wisconsin Spirit Quest caches too. There are more than one out there because I saw that a Lady had found one too....

The shadow must be looking for caches that need maintance, we stopped by one of ours today that had a DNF back in January, but since then the snow melted and the cache was easier to be found. the melt must have moved it a bit, but still found it. We brought a new one along to replace or upgrade the container, to our suprise as we checked the old container we found a silver Shadow coin inside.

Wow, I’m going to go out and buy some lottery tickets. I don’t hang out in the forums and when I got my second gold coin and came to this thread to post my appreciation to the Shadow and saw that I wasn’t the first to get one, being in Georgia, I would have become very anxious.

Thanks again Shadow.

Congrats Sweetlife!

 

The Shadow coins are one of the few true mystery coins around nowdays.
