I just came back from Boston (working and visiting friends) and couldn`t follow the thread.

Yes, the shop was very fast sold out.

 

I try to get in contact with those who would like to get those. If I forget someone please contact me with your e-mail reply.

please be aware that I will keep a few to sell over ebay due to raise some money for GCF2011 EU

But this will be after those are sold over the forum.

On another note. We have a few more editions planned over the course of the year. I will let everyone know beforehand so there isn't any last minute hysteria. :D I am not sure what and when but do know there will be:

 

a summer solstice mask (Version C from the first post)

a pink Venetian mask at GCF Europa in August sold by mygeocoins.de

 

Places I have found the geoswag version sold (in case you missed out)

I have talked to a number of Dutch cachers and this is all news to them. The ACE event has nothing to do with the Mardi Gras theme.

I looked at the event page of the Dutch event and there's nothing about this coin, only their own event coin. So is this the event where they will be available? Will they be available somewhere else if I'm not able to attend the event?

That's the event given to me for the bookmark list from Avroair.

It will be there on the ACE. There will be a small happening, but as I a little was late in organising it, there is no information in the event itself about the mardigrass.

The coin will be launched there. The event is already full, so unfortunately you cannot attent anymore.

Remaining coins will be made available next week.

I´m so sorry but I make a mistake with the Germany red/white I have no coin from this edition.

Our small Mardigrass happening took place and the coin is launched on the event yesterday.

The Dutch edition is a two tone version (polished gold with black nickel mask details), with orange, black and blue and orange background (we have something with orange in Holland :D )

Avroair: thanks for this beautiful design and next year, we will plan better and make it a nice celibration during the dutch Carnival!

 

The remaining coins are now available here

The coin prices include VAT (Value Added Tax). This is a European tax that residents outside of Europe are exempt from paying. Namely they should be reduced 19% for U.S. buyers.

Correct. According to law, the pricing should include VAT by default.

The 19% VAT is automatically removed after login with a shipping address outside the EU.

Managed to get the very last one. WooHoo

 

I will be asking for the VAT to be refunded.

Initially the price was showing with VAT, but after I backed out of my first order want did it again it seems that the VAT was dropped. So it may be that some people were charged VAT?

They are indeed sold out.

Probably not as Woejam said, it should get dropped. But it's always wise to check. :)

Hmmm... maybe. I'm thought I only saw it dropped from mine after I backed out of the PayPal transaction, went back and altered my cart - at that point it got refreshed and the price dropped from 12 euros to 10.whatever euros. So it might pay for people to check just in case.

I tried to get one, had one in my cart, but by the time I created my account they were sold out. Guess I have to be faster next time.

Guess so. Practice your F5 skills. :blink::DB) Although they weren't sold out in the first 2 hours. That's when I checked. I blieve some people will have some available for trade. There should be some available May 5th. :ph34r:

You should post this in the GEOCOIN TRADING, WANTS, OFFERS AND LISTS thread pinned at the top of the Geocoin Discussions. That is the correct place for it, plus more people will see it there. :)

I think you are talking about the Geoswag Coin and Pin club edition. From center of the collar I see it as Blue, Orange, Blue, and Yellow. No of the other versions come close to what you are describing unless I missed something.

 

Found an old pic of it on ebay here: http://cgi.ebay.com/Venetian-Geocoin-Geoswag-Club-Version-U-T-/150580733113

 

and here is a bookmark list that AtlantaGal created for all the events: http://www.geocaching.com/bookmarks/view.aspx?guid=fc267275-4d23-4f02-a47d-61e53bd65890

When is the Cinco de Mayo version going to be available? Should be soon, huh?

 

Haha, I can't wait. After that we should move into other Holiday Versions Haloween, July 4th, Christmas, etc :anitongue:

This is the one I was meaning. But I still don't understand why it's different than the blue and white GEOSWAG one I have?? What do we call the two different Geoswag coins??

and where can we buy them??? I'm having to track them down on ebay, where can I get them first hand???

AHA! In looking through past posts, I see that GS had two different coins, public and club. But to confirm which is which...blue/white is public?

The one in blue and white was the Geoswag edition that was sold in the shop. That one in orange and blue is the edition of Geoswag's Coins and Pin Club. I think you need to be a member of that club, if you want to buy that edition. Trading might be an alternative to e***.

Altix, thanks for confirming that; it's what I thought. Trading is not an option for me, because I have nothing in my collection that I would want to give up! Well, I could offer a rare Guam geocoin. Wonder if that would be interesting to anyone???

If anyone is interested in trading a masquerade mask geocoin, I have only three of them and want all of them! I have several Guam Geocoins to offer in trade. These coins are a limited run of coins designed to promote and celebrate the US territory of Guam, the place I call home. You can find a picture of the Guam coin in trackables collection, here:My link

If you are interested, please send an email.

:D

Trades should be conducted through the GEOCOIN TRADING, WANTS, OFFERS AND LISTS thread pinned at the top of the Geocoin Discussions forums. You are likely to get a better response through there :)

I recently bought two masks and the middle gem was missing on both. On one The gem was in the holder. Any one know where I can get the gems and how to insert them back once I get them?

 

thanks

This happened to one of our Netherland coins too. Geoswag sent us replacement stones which you apply with a tiny amount of super glue on a toothpick. Try contacting geoswag directly to see if they can help you out.

Geoswag has sent out replacement stones to the hosts who ordered the coin and reported a stone missing. But if you are buying or trading second hand make sure you check the coin when you get it. Once it's in the secondary market it's buyer beware.
