I wish there was some way to find out if coins have been found.....hate to buy like there is no tomorrow just to find out someone found it two days earlier. Also...what is the deal with putting it out before the 21st...that is really not fair!
I am trying not to get too confused by conflicting clues...keeping my nose to the grindstone..can anyone tell me if they get more specific towards the end or are they still "go east/west/north/south from this random location"?

Totally hooked, got clue 28 today. I'm zeroed in on the greater northwest treasure. I do hope the coin gets put in place the 21st. I've got to fly to the place or drive 8 hours. If they wait till like 23rd and I've already left - that would blow.
I'm zeroed on the virtual hunt too. 2 more clues and you better have faster fingers to dial than me

The only one I know that's been found is the virtual coin. I don't have the link on hand, but apparantly someone screwed up his answer, called 10 min later, and it was found, roughly 20 min after the posting of the phone number to call.
I called the verification number today, to inquire about whether or not my territory's coin had been found. They said they had no idea, but I wasn't the first caller in my area to ask. The verification number said that only Dr Pepper had the information, and that they'd be posting on their site regularly. Needless to say, that wasn't the case.
At present, my guess is that the coins were placed on the same day the virtual coin went 'live'. I'm still going to hunt tonight and all day tomorrow and wednesday, but I'm not optimistic. It's a really small area now, and anyone with a day off today has beaten me to the punch.
I'll keep you posted if any surprises happen though.

I censored the unnecessary language in that post above (but i left the typos in place).
In many contests with a single prize, I have also seen people post discouraging things like, "don't bother looking any further because I already found it," hoping to convince people to give up before it is really over, thus giving themselves a better shot at winning later for themselves. Trust no one on the internet who posts as an anonymous guest.
That being said, stay away from my coin! We killed ourselves wandering a certain park yesterday, only to get the next clue at midnight which told us how much of that area was out of bounds. I wish there was a way to know whether the coin is still there -- or whether it has even been put in place yet.

are you serious, your that little kid that found the code in oil creek state park pennsylvania and told abc news you only used 18 clues? ive been working on this forever and i finaly narrow it down with 28 clues and drive 4 hours after calling out sick from work. I finnaly get there and this little 14 year old is in my spot with the coin. i swear if they let your parents claim the prize for you im gonna spend my time figruing out where you live because i know you got an inside tip on this, theres no way you couldve found the coing with only 18 clues. sleep with 1 eye open kid, that money shouldve been mine

I am nuts!
I am so addicted to this...we are having so much fun with the clues...made all the more exciting to have figured out that we are maybe 20 minutes away from the prize!!! I am going to be out and about on Wed morning! I just wonder how many other people are doing the same? Any ideas?

Anybody know if any coins have been found yet?
Do you think they are already placed?

i just started playing this today because of your post here, its fun! i don't know if the coins there or not (21st and all) and my 3rd physical clue told me it was in my state! neat!

also adds a bit of 'chance' as well, since you'd really have to check back regularly after the 'maybe' date passes... if you don't and you only check once, but it's not laid yet, you'll never know if you're right or wrong. It bugs me a bit that they don't state a certain time when it will be dropped, but hey, it adds a level of dedication to give a better chance to people who are the (much) more determined to find the coin. *shrug*
Phone # for the virtual hunt may be released on Sunday. Get all your clues!

"Might not be". So they may or may not already be in place.
I suppose they want the option to wait until later in the contest to avoid someone accidentally finding a coin (ala metal detectors) without participating in the sweepstakes.

Anyone speak legalese?
The Coins: Each of the Coins is worth a separate cash prize, varying in value. The Coins will be golden in color and may be contained within a small bag or other container within its hiding place. Each Coin will feature a Dr Pepper® logo, along with the words “The Hunt for More”, a unique prize number, and a special toll-free number (the “Coins”) to call in order to claim 1 of 23 separate cash prizes (the “Treasures”). THE COINS MAY NOT BE PLACED IN THEIR HIDDEN LOCATION UNTIL FEBRUARY 21, 2007. The timing of the Coin placement is at the sole discretion of Sponsor.
Does this mean that the coins -won't- be dropped until the 21st, Or that they -might- not be dropped until the 21st?
Also, keep your bottle-tops. Just in case.

The Docusource Crew
What region is everyone in.
Myself and a couple of friends are doing this hunt from work. Were in New Orleans.
This is a fun game we only have 9 clues so we have to catch up. I would like to know if there are tons of people doing the same thing. Good luck to all.
