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.
