Series II Challenge Coins (Update #2)

Hi all-
Jack Wylder here once again with your Series II Challenge Coin update #2.
Finally got word from the mint: the estimated ship date on the entire order is on or about 10/16. This means that with any luck we should be able to get all the orders fulfilled relatively shortly thereafter. I will be out of town for just under a week on a work trip so that will delay things slightly but hopefully not all that much- I will be rallying the troops and dedicating my weekends to getting these to you just as quickly as I can.

A few FAQs:

  • Q: How can I order these awesome CorreiaTech coins for myself?
    A: Without a time machine to take you back to the end of last month, you’ll have to wait for the ’round up’ coins to go on sale once all orders have been filled. Sorry- we DID do our best to make sure everyone knew when we were taking orders!

  • Q: I placed my order weeks ago! Why haven’t I gotten my coins yet??
    A: As we stated before- Phase One was Design, Phase Two was taking orders, Phase Three is manufacture (in progress now), and Phase Four is shipping. We can’t jump over Phase Three. We will definitely keep you posted right here on any updates as we have news to share. We want you to have these coins- I mean, we really really want you to have them and be done with this (so we can GET PAID) 😉

  • Q: I just ordered a patch and it cost $15 for shipping! What the heck is Wendell doing to me here??
    A: Ok, that’s on me. I’m going to readjust the shipping back down for all new orders BUT I am not going to be able to go through and just ship the orders that don’t have coins. I’ve made a note on the swag page that all orders are going to ship in the order they came in (so if you need patches just hold off for now.) If you absolutely HAVE to have the patches ASAP for something, drop me an email at CorreiaTech1911@gmail dot com and we’ll work something out.

  • Q: Where can I get one of the original PUFF coins?
    A: The only way to get one of the original PUFF exemption coins is to somehow convince someone to give theirs up. (Seriously, the number of times I’ve been asked this is just staggering. I would love to have a box of them unearthed in the vast CorreiaTech swag warehouse but I just don’t see it happening, folks. Sorry.)

  • I will update this just as soon as there’s anything new to say about it. Thank you all again! – Jack

    1. With respect to getting a PUFF coin, your best bet is to hit eBay and set up a notification if one is put up for auction. I managed to pick up a Frank’s and a G-gnome coin awhile back when someone sold an entire set. Pure luck that I stumbled across them, and the last I saw the PUFF coin was going for $85+ by itself.

    2. I was there when LC first saw the finished challenge coins. Why? Because I showed him my coins and he totally geeked out, as he hadn’t yet seen them in real life.

      Yes, the International Lord of Hate believed it was more important for his evil underlings to deliver on his promises than to send him even one coin.

    3. Jack, thanks for the update! My anticipation is only being held at bay because 1) it’s a new semester and students are quite demanding of my time, and 2) it’s football season and I’m a huge Steelers fan (and Pirates fan too, and they’re in the postseason). I eagerly await that lovely box arriving on my doorstep in late October!

    4. According to Larry…I was the only one at Rose City Comic Con to present my Smiley coin. I am eagerly awaiting my new order and hope to ave them for Larry’s return to town on the 4th
