Recommended Posts

I have 'in error' :D picked up a geocoin the other day. I have tried and tried to pick it up from geocaching.com, but without success.....any help to solve this is appreciated. Many thanks

 

:unsure:

 

The first response with these sorts of problems is always, "Have you misread the O for a zero, the Z for a two, the S for a five?" etc etc...

I have had this problem on some of the coins I have picked up, which have extra digits after the tracking number.

 

Just enter the first group of characters (usually 6).

 

If that still does not work, try contacting the owner or previous finder for advice (assuming the coin is still listed at the cache).

I've just had a quick look at your profile and I see that you haven't had any dealings with geocoins before :huh:

 

You must use the number actually on the coin itself to log it, not that reference number on the geocoin's page (i.e. not TB1TQ40).

 

Go to the geocoin's page, then top right side click on "Found it? Log it!". In the drop-down, select the "Retrieved from..." option. In the box "Travel Bug Tracking #" you must put the number which is on the geocoin . Then add any comments and click "Submit Log Entry".

 

Hope this might help!
