Hello Coin 2000

Posted: August 31st, 2010 | Author: | Filed under: production | 5 Comments »

I didn’t expect to have coin 2000 show up so soon.  But sals have been brisk, there were an awful lot of pre-orders, and before I knew it, coin 1999 went out the door.

Luckily, when it was looking pretty much like coin 2000 was going to come and go, I called up the Monterey Company and ordered another 1000 coins, a considerable expense, but a required one. GET LAMPs come with coins.  They were able to move as quickly as possible, and minted them out before I began the JET LAMP tour later this week.

I BELIEVE this will hold me for the rest of the year, but no complaints if I’m proven wrong.  I expect that very soon the delay between ordering a GET LAMP copy and it going out the door will be a matter of hours.

Bye, coin 2000!

    My copy arrived last week and I still haven’t gotten the time to watch all of it–from what I saw so far it’s phenomenal–but I did notice something odd about my coin… The ‘number plate’ isn’t quite centered relative to the compass rose, which lends the coin an annoyingly unbalanced look.

    I know this sounds like nitpicking, but the flaw is pretty obvious and the coin is pretty awesome.

    If you want, I can swap it out, free of charge. It’ll be a different number, of course.

    Thanks for the kind offer, but no need. Like a stamp with a flaw I’m sure this coin will be worth millions some day. Millions!

    Plus, I prefer a low-ish number *grin*

    Believe it or not, the number on my coin is the same as the PIN number from my first ever cashcard.

    @ TDB
    My compass is a few degrees off so my assumption is that all of the number plates are the same way.

    I can’t say enough how much I enjoyed BBS and Lamp. Whatever your next project Jason, I’m in.
