Ever had that eerie feeling that wouldn't go away? It was picking and picking and I couldn't get it to stop. And with Halloween around the corner and it being my favorite time of year I decided to make a MB styled Halloween coin! As I have thorough annoyed my wife with how much time I spend on the computer with Corel Draw I decided to make sure that people would be as interested in Halloween as I am before I carve my path into a possible divorce!( :blink: ) This is a preview of one side of the coin. I will post all artwork as soon as I receive the approved artwork. It will be a 1.5 inch trackable coin with some glow in the dark features and some MB stylings! Let me know if anyone is interested in a Halloween coin!

Looks promising! Glow-in-the-dark is always a plus, and I do like the 'Big Boo' ghosts from the Mario games.

Very cute. Love the Mario styling. Glow in the dark is desirable! Price them right & I would buy a bunch! :sad:

I'd take one in every finish you are running. I like black nickle the most so if that's an option I'd take 2 of those as well.

Thinking about our plating options but still undecided. I will keep black nickel in mind though I don't know how good the webbing would show up with the black background. I have some sample plating coins coming soon so we can get an idea of which to use and will post the results here asap!

Sorry. We are currently not trading as we are two people and coins are hard to split down the middle!

Very cool. We (me , my wife and son) love the designs on these coins. We do not have any as of yet (we never find one that is unactivated) but I would love to collect them. Would love to see more about this as the work progresses.

Just send me a msg if you are wanting any of these coins as there are in the minting process and seem to be going fast(on the reserve list of course!) Let me know what platings you want, physical addy(for shipping purposes) and name (email addy too if you PM me in the forums)
