Yep, That was my coin at the CCCCC event. It was retrieved by some new cachers who still have it :(

It doesn't appear as if they have been caching since. :oops:

All too familiar story im afraid....it annoys me so much when people take the coins or anything with no intent to move on, log out or in, it amounts to stealing in my books.

I agree, but after a quick PM to the holder, explanations were given and all is fine.
Hope Tegator meets with the same success!

As it turns out the coin i saw was one of same series, that had not been activated. so not your coin at all.

perhaps we should all think back to the days when we were new at this ( for some it is longer ago than others) and remeber how new everything was. Everyone makes mistakes, forgets things, doesnt know what to do with TB's and coins. It is easy when you are a noob to get discouraged by negative comments.

Pesky, comments were not directed at any individual, they were general comments about my opinion on coins that go missing
