Good on you for not assuming, however. Here's a link describing the tx format. I recommend extracting the inputs from the tx using Core commands. This way, you're not trying to manually monkey around with the bytes. You can safely post the addresses of the inputs because an address is just a public record index in the blockchain that is associated with an unspent output. Once you've confirmed whether the inputs are still funded, then it's a matter of trying to resubmit the transaction.

    To check any address or transaction ID for yourself, just go to blockexplorer, copy-paste it in and then press enter.

    Addresses, block numbers and transaction ID's are always 100% safe to show to others. You should exercise care with public keys - while they will not compromise your funds if they are exposed, exposing them is equivalent to address-reuse which is discouraged on the basis of long-term security considerations. Of course, showing your private keys is equivalent to giving away cash, so take utmost care with them ... just avoid handling them as much as possible beyond the minimum required to make sure you control your funds and have proper backups, etc. And, yes, you have to specifically export your private key in order to expose it (please don't do this, even locally). This is why this usage is discouraged. Instead, people are encouraged to "sweep" private keys, which just submits a transaction moving your old coins to a new address with a fresh private key.

    When you have some spare time, consider reading over this amazing blog post to demystify the mechanics of Bitcoin transactions. Even if you're not a techie, just skim over it to get an idea of what's involved. Think of it kind of like looking under the hood of a running car ... even if you don't understand all the whirling gears & levers, you still get a feel for what's going on inside the vehicle.

    If you decide to re-broadcast the transaction, you can use this page unless you have Core, then there's probably a way to do it from there.

    Hope you get your coins back!

    When I try to rebroadcast the raw transaction I get this...

    Does this offer any more clues?

    "Enter the address containing the stuck payment into the first text field, then click Load. Even though your transaction is unconfirmed, Coinbin should display the value of the pending payment."

    Coinbin doesn't display the value of the pending payment. Instead it's reporting zero outputs and inputs.

    I also did a -reindex and that didn't work either.

    No idea...

    Never encountered your situation or even seen anyone else with the problem.

    The only way that could have happened though, is if the transaction was dumped from the mempool before it was mined, or it was malformed somehow and rejected, but I'd assume it'd show as rejected in that case.

    You'd have to ask someone more knowledgeable, like a bitcoin developer.

    My guess it was dumped from the mempool, and wasn't retransmitted, but that's just a guess.

    Can you log onto the mining pool you used and see what it says. Maybe you'll get lucky or something, or show them, and they can send you a new transaction.

    Just posted on reddit to see if I can get any help there. Price has gone vertical since I started this thread. I would really like to get my money out before the bubble bursts.

    Haven't really thought that far ahead yet. I have other cryptocurrencies. First I would just like to prove that I can get some of it out of my wallet. Then I'll figure out what to do from there. Whether that's dollar-cost-averaging, or liquidation, I don't know.

    BTW, I was able to unlock this wallet using an old password in an attempt to send coins, but it still reports the balance as zero. If this was an empty shell wallet that was never used I doubt I could get my password to work on it. There is a reason why the blockchain is reporting these transactions into my wallet.

    Have you posted in reddit, or on bitcointalk? There are experts who know the inner workings rather well there
