I agree. See, a second (3rd or 5th) pair of eyes is always efficient. I'll have them remove the "@"

WOOOHOOO my coins have arrived and they look better than expected. It looks like around two bucks apiece with shipping. Maybe a little less.

Swede,

I'll mail you $20 so deduct shipping and send me as many coins as it'll buy. You better start thinking of a thread to put up on the homepage so cachers can tell the tale of where they found the coin and where they can track it.

BTW- the geocoins are in production now. I'll let everyone know when I get them in hand.

Hey swede, I'll send you 10$ and you can send me however many as well. I think I still have your address. I may take more later if you dont get rid of them all.

Also, thanks, rockhounder. Cant wait to get them...

These coins are wood and Ive seen wooden ones warped when the cache box got wet. I would recommend putting them in one of those tiny zip lock bags like the one pictured with the logos in it.

Zip lock bags or just give them a light sanding and slop them with marine varnish.

Of the wooden ones Ive found some were warped from being wet.  Marine varnish or polyurethane clear coat might work and Im not sure sealing them in a zip lock will keep them dry. The zip lock may draw moisture for all I know.

I used a pair of side cutter pliers and dipped these one at a time in a can of polyurethane clear glossy. The problem is setting them down on something to dry. Im going to make something like a piece of plywood with a bunch of driver screws to set them on to dry before I send them out.

I'd take a pair of coat hanger wires and put 'em on a pair of wooden blocks.  Dip first time, lay on back, let dry.  Lightly sand with 220 sandpaper, dip again and this time lay on front.  That should totally seal them.
