I just bought a new "Golden Spike" coin. I went to retrieve the activation code and thought I had written it down right. Evidently I didn't. Anyone know how I can get the code again?

Tried that already. It won't let me look it up the second time. It says it's not in their database.

wait a day and then try oakcoins again, sometimes it will let you but after 24 hours. If that doesnt work contact the maker of the coin and hope they still have the master list. You can also try e-mailing groundspeak for the code. I have done that before but last time I had to spell it out for them a few times before they came through with it.

Contacting the owner will probably be quickest. One time when I wrote the code down wrong, I emailed support@oakcoins.com and they responded 10 days later with the correct code. I was only one letter off so I probably would have gotten it if I'd just tried a whole bunch of variations.
