** Seriously -- get them from Merkman - they are wonderful!!!
Since he won't toot his own horn and announce that he made this cool coin I'll toot it for him -- these are great coins!

Now that I have the "Centris Blessing" this coin is ready for some MN Cachers!!!!

If you want them though me contact me via geocaching or merk@prodigy.net not via E-bay.

Here are the details:

*************************************************************

1 Standard Edition Silver Coin.

Dimensions are 2" wide by 1" high and 4.0 mm thick

All color is done in synthetic hard enamel.

4 color front.
5 color back.

This is a high quality coin with a "very nice feel" to it.

www.geocaching.com trackable with custom icon

This coin would make a great addition to your geocoin collection.

This coin is on hand and will ship in a padded envelope via the USPS First Class Mail within 1 business day of confirmed payment.

Shipping insurance is optional
*************************************************************

The limited edition (gold) coins can only be purchased in sets.

If you are interested in Standard Edition Coins only they are $10 each.

Shipping is $2.50 for the entire order. (No mater how many coins you order)

Let me know what you would like. You can pay pal the money to merk@prodigy.net or send me a check or money order to

Steve Merkling

Isanti, MN 55040

I will ship them as soon as I get cleared payment. I prefer pay pal since I don't have to wait for the check to clear but I will accept checks and money orders. I ship once per day every day the post office is open.

Thanks for your interest.

Merkman

Ohh yeah did I mention they are Centris Approved? Laughing

I am sorry pfalstad. I will make it up to you.

E-bay does not allow me to initiate contact to you outside of E-bay on an item you have bid on. It was not my intent but I don't want to mess with my ablity to sell on E-bay geomail me and we can work it out.

LOL --- really they are a NICE coin -- thanks for giving me first peek!
I don't know if you need a blessing Wink but we sure had a great chat today!

(hard to believe I actually got to a geocoin before the "coin king" got his paws on one) It's the end of the world as we know it! Shocked

lol! Just so long as someone doesn't nab them before I get out there Wink

Any coins with the number 42 in the code would be cool, but I know it's a pain to pick them out (ala the Experience Minnesota coins at KB's event).

Now if I could just ever figure out what I want on my coin...

Can you believe this there is not a single 42 in the entire set? No Kidding.

There is one 24 but no 42ís

Weird... not uncommon I suppose, there's a lot of number combos out there.

Frankly I was surprised to find one in the minnesota coins.
