    You think maybe you ought to up it to 100 or maybe 250 like I miss informed it was earlier? More money in the coffers.

    I will bring this up to the board members but the intent was not to do it for profit or to build a large amount of money.

    At the moment I am thinking any more than 50 is no longer a limited edition, but I will entertain any comments to the contrary.

    I agree that too many will make it no longer LE. Although, I won't complain if more are offered since I am a slacker and did not order mine in time to get one lol

    BTW, thanks again to everyone who worked so hard in organizing this I'm so excited, can't wait to see them!!

    Not sure if anyone has posted this but if the back of the coin is the state flipped then east and west are wrong.

    Yes, that was brought up and it is all in the eyes of the beholder. One person will say the same thing you just did. Then someone else will look at it and say that the East and West are backwards on on the compass, if we had it the other way. You cannot make everyone happy.

    If we change the LE from 50 to xxx at this point (with the 50 sold to people rushing in to grab a limited coin) we may hear from all 50 of them complaining that it isn't the limited coin they thought it would be. LE coins typically sell out quickly, part of the charm is having a coin that's rare. And as Rick said, we were looking for a small profit on these for the site, not something huge.

    Seem correct to me.....given you are looking at the points of the compass.

    I agree. Set a number and go with it. I think if you keeping bumping up the number of LE coins, it no longer is. However, I disagree with Rick.... it's not a bad thing to profit, I do understand his philosophy. Increased means not having to front as much personal money for coins, logo items, etc.
