I use a regular digital pocket camera, set on macro mode. I place the coins on a countertop under a bright fluorescent desk light with some tissue paper over the bulb as a diffuser... then take about a dozen pictures of each side. I pick the best two, resize and merge them together with PS, then erase all the background, soften the edges and blank out the tracking number. I try to do that with every coin I activate, but it takes 30-45 minutes per each to do a good job.

Maybe that's why I have a stack of coins here I haven't activated yet...

OK, good advice!! I do not think my pics will come out as good as yours, but you have given me some great advice.

Bert works in a chemical plant and at 4AM he can get off the track sometimes, but I'm pretty sure he was still talking coins.

It costs about $2 to ship one or two coins via US Mail. I accept PayPal!

HC - I haven't run into you since you offered these up. I guess I'd like to go ahead and get mine mailed. Unless you are going to LogDawg's event next Wednesday.

I have an idea. Put one on the Fridge Door. Now that is a good idea.

Sorry, I'm in Ohio through Monday (watching the wife run 26.2 miles). I plan on going to the SETX Octoberfest event at Lake Livingston SP next month.

I took Baytown Bert's Houston Control HGCS geocoin with me on my recent cruise. I then dropped it off with a German Cacher headed for a 19 country tour. Should be fun.
