Where and how do you log benchmarks, coins, and/or benchmark coins? I believe I read somewhere on GC.com that if you find a coin or benchmarkor benchmark coin that you can log it whether you move it or not. (guess you can't move benchmarks anyway). Any ideas?

You cant log canadian benchmarks and benchmark coins are just trackable geocoins.

OK, thanks. I knew I saw it somewhere, but when you want to find it again, you can't.

After QuigglyJones pointed me in the right direction I went and had a look on GC.com. The reason for all this is because I noticed a Canadian Benchmark Micro coin in a cache I visited yesterday. I took a couple of pictures, one of each side and included it in my log. When I did some homework on the Micro coin it said that it had started it's journey in Nova Scotia along with two other sibling coins.
The strange thing I noticed about the coin pictures when they were being sent off in Nova Scotia is that the tracking number had been blanked out in the pictures shown by the coin owner. What might be the reason for that?

I immediately went to GC,com and deleted the picture I had postedin my log showing the side with the tracking number because I thought if the owner did not want to show the number, I shouldn't show it either.

People don't use the tracking numbers in pictures to prevent virtual logging of a coin. Some people will log a coin even if they have never seen it if that can get the tracking number.

You CAN log Canadian Benchmarks there just not at geocaching.com. Go to waymarking.com to find them or just check my signature!
