signature token 2009
This is what you would call a limited edition. 2009 was a bit of a rough year for me and my geocaching and token making time suffered for it. I did make a 2009 token which you’ll see below but I believe I only got around 8 of them finished before the mold snapped in two.
I tried to repair the mold but to no avail. Then, before I knew it, it was going to be 2010 and it seemed silly to put a lot of time and energy into a token for the year before. So, if you’ve found one of these you’ve found a rare collectible! If you’ve got some negotiation skill you might be able to use it to buy some used chewing gum. If you’re REAL good you might get a whole cup of water!
The images on the token are pretty self-explanatory. Again, like in 2008, the stars represent the latin words rideo, venatio, and fortuna which means “Laughter, To hunt, and Luck.”
Here’s the token for ID. If you’ve found a token and it’s led you here then please leave a small comment. It’s a great deal of fun to see comments from people!
Last year I did promise to make a photo tutorial on these and I aim to make good on that promise this Spring as I finish up on the 2010 token.
