coin update

The coins are here!!!! Well some of them. They were 3D printed and then cast in white brass. I have yet to figure out how to finish them. So many. First I have to cut off all of the sprues. Then they have to be pickled. Then they have to be brass brushed. Then they will go into the tumbler. Then they will be darkened. Then they have to be brushed again. Whew. Lots of work to do. NO TIME TO DO IT!!!! If anyone is bored and has nothing to do in New Paltz tomorrow or Saturday and you are somewhat familiar with metals I could use a hand. Sunday there will be a big event in New Paltz on main street to celebrate 125 years of being awesome! Come check it out. I will be easy to spot because I will probably have polishing compound in my beard and all over my fingers. I could not have done it without the help of Vegan powered cookies from Vegan Obrien Baking company or TABA casting in NY.  Thanks.
