    Default 2007 Maine Geocoin

    After some talking back and forth with various members, I think we have a possible coin design. This would be a trackable coin with the same size and same front as the last one, but representing Katahdin on the back. The Paul Bunyan statue will be in 3D, but may not have red in it. Let me know what you think. (OK, constructive stuff, coin only, don't let me REALLY know what you think!)



    ...Well, after spending an hour trying to upload this picture, I'll PM Rick and see if we can get it loaded, I tried jpg, jpeg, gif, "save for web" option in Photoshop, no luck. When I upload, it keeps saying "This is not a valid image file"

    Odd, I was able to upload the picture into my personal gallery. It's labeled "blue border coin". I'll try to figure out how to get it to this thread, but it's on the site.

    Very cool to see this is moving along.

    There is something funny with uploading images. I still can't change my avatar - I get the same "invalid file format" error you're getting.

    Hmmmmm, that Paul Bunyan figure sure looks familiar, now where have I seen that character before?

    I think the coin looks pretty cool! whats on the other side?
    Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.

    This is a one sided coin to save money.

    pause...pause...

    OK, the front is the same as the '05 coin.

    That's not a cant dog, it's a peavy!. Speaking of which, is there room to print "Hands off my peavy" on the coin?

    It would look really nice if we could have the same outer blue ring border like the other side has with the gold lettering. It really stands out nice. The first coin was really hard to see the lettering. Just my thoughts. And one other thing, it is Maine North Woods or Maine Northern Woods or Northern Maine woods?......
