Avroair Aviator 2010

Recommended Posts

GCF time, which means... Aviator time...

 

My caching name, Avroair comes from Avro the plane manufacturer (of which my grandfather flew) and I added air on the end when AOL told me my user name wasn't long enough in 1989! I have always been interested in planes and I have my grandfather's original 1943 aviators watch.

There are 4 versions:

satin silver

satin gold

antique silver (my version)

antique gold

 

There are 50 of each, the AS I will be trading and giving away, the three others will be at the Oakcoins booth at GCF. Coin is trackable with an icon.

 

Edit to add: sorry for the bad mint photos.

Nice touch on the engine intake. Looks cool! Any significance to 9:51, other than the hands being at the standard "happy" position? BTW, if it was a minute earlier, you'd have 10 to 10 on the 10th! :laughing:

 

Bah, so much for my pinpoint analysis. Just noticed that I had the hands reversed! So it's actually 1:51. A little early for tea time, so there goes another theory. :(

I'm drawn to all the details, and also appreciate that it's an updated design that still is true to the theme of your personals. Nicely done. Hope to see you at the Saturday night event for some trading.

I was going to put them on the 10 10, but then GCF moved the date... I tried 9:19 but that didn't look good, so I ended up leaving them at the happy position.

Definitely a very nice looking coin in the AS! My father also had a watch similar to that one. Sadly it was stolen in a break in of our house.

Nice coin Mark! I think my begging will start NOW! Please bring an extra with you to the 10-10-10 event so I can give you more and more of my money! I don't care which version, but I got the money for it! See you soon! And just because I need more exclamation points, here is another one!

Well, I gave away or traded all but a couple of the Aviators AS, and Oakcoins sold a bunch of the other three versions, we held back some for sale on geowag.com

Argh! I wanted to stop by your table at GCF and take a gander at those, but we were so darn busy at our MnGCA table, I totally spaced it out. They look great!

I noticed you've listing a Shiny gold version on ebay and that 60 were minted. Is that one you decided not to sell outside of GCF? A secert 5th version?

Nope, I don't do secret versions :):DB) That's one I bought at GCF.

 

Edited to add: My listing shows shiny gold, there is currently no shiny gold version (that's the satin gold). That's what I get for listing coins at GCF after spending all evening in the bar! :D

Yep. Bought a couple of each version... the 50 AS were given to me in the split. 50 for me for free and the rest for Oakcoins (geoswag) to sell. Worked out well :D
