    If you leave an item in a container in the woods, the purpose of which is to trade things in and out of, you give up any claim of ownership to the item. I hope he gets $2K for it. Just MVHO.

    Nope I am not going to get rid of this one. This is a special coin. It is a coin that was put together by four well know cachers that do coins. It is called "Coin Fusion". It just happens that Moun10Bike is one of those cachers. It is not trackable and it even says on the side of the coin "Property of the coin fusion project - not to be sold". So maybe this will be a good collectors item.

    As for me, I wouldn't pay a dollar for a geo-coin . . . but that's just me. It's not my thing. Ditto for the Beanie Baby craze that was going on a few years back . . . and whatever "must have" collection item is the latest rage or thing to own. However, if someone is willing to part with that much money . . . then bully for them and the seller.

    Personally, I'm still toasting up cheese sandwiches, looking at pretzels and checking out my cat's coughed up hairballs in the hopes of finding an image of the Virgin Mary to put on e-bay . . . and then I'll be able to retire from here and geocache full-time.
    i dont know about anything with the virigin mary in it... but i have an picture of the invisable man for sale!! i sold printing rights to a tabloid a few years back and those rights have just recently expired so... the rights to the pic and the pic itself are worth hundreds maybe even thousands of 1/2 pennies...

    Well, the interesting thing I just found with about three minutes of research; Moun10Bike is (more like.. 'was') giving away his (near worthless back then, I’m quite sure) geo-coins as Xmas presents! Giving the benefit of doubt, it is (at least in theory) ‘possible’ that the geocacher may have gotten it as just that... A present. That lucky geocacher then turned around and used that $5.00 coin and used it to pay off a fairly large debt. We might frown upon it, but dang. Talk about 'caching' (ouch) a break!!

    What's MOST scary? A $5.00 GeoCoin (not unlike the geocachingmaine.org coin) somehow gathers so much worth due to 'collectors' that it now commands these sort of prices! What the heck are geocachers becoming? Here I was, thinking that this was a GAME.

    Heh. Now If I were Moun10Bike, I would order another small shipment each year, pop them up on e-bay and YEAH BABY, use the proceeds to retire and cache year full time. Think about it. $2,000 + per coin, 15 coins a year (hardly enough to over-saturate the market) and HELLO, that's $30,000 bucks! More than enough to buy a used but decent cache car, all the fuel you’ll need, and many a night spent in campgrounds. Each year, rince and REPEAT.

    : )

    P.S. Anyone know anyone that can do a good counterfeit on GeoCoins? LOL.
