Missing/Stolen TB & Coin Stats

Recommended Posts

For those that may be interested I have analysed the losses of all my trackables that I own.

 

Of the 55 TB's and coins I own I have released 30. Of the 30 in total 7 are TB dog tags and over the last 3 years I have only had one go missing ie: 14.2% lost. HOWEVER .. the balance of 23 were an assortment of coins and to date 7 are MIA and moved to an unknown location ie. 30.4%.

 

I can only deduce from this that geocachers tend to keep or dare I say .. steal.. coins. Very sad indeed. You dont need to be a brain surgeon to realize the TB's are the way to go. Pity.

Yep I have seen the same. Coins tend to go missing much more then TBs.

I find TBs more photogenic, when taking photos for the owners, but coins are much nicer to discover, hold, and ponder the design.

Not too sure if TB are the way to go - of my 10 travellers 6 are coins and only 2 survive - one of which I carry with me - the other I only released in Feb this year and it spent most of the time in a cache at the top of a mountain pass with only one visitor. Only one of my TB survive?? So no more travellers for me!
