Hello all!

Sheldius and I are both quickly approaching the 1000 post milestone, and we thought we would do a joint giveaway!

So, the contest is fairly simple. There are two prizes (one from each of us):

#1 A PCGS PF-70 Silver Chicksaw ATB Quarter (Provided by me)
#2 A 1925-S Two-Feather Buffalo nickel (Provided by Sheldius)

To enter, you just have to reply to this post with your guess at each of these two questions:
#1 What is the face value of my jar of Canadian coins (see included pic)?
#2 Who will reach 1000 posts first (i.e. CoinHunter4 or Sheldius)?

You MUST enter before Sheldius or I reach 1000 posts

Whoever correctly guesses the answer to question #1 will win prize #1, and all of the people who guess question #2 correctly will be entered into a random name drawing for a chance to win prize #2.

Here are the rules:
Only 1 guess at each question (a total of 2)
You must have at least 50 quality posts to enter

Here is an example of how your reply should look (with random answers):
Guess #1 $50
Guess #2 Sheldius

The winners of the two prizes will be announced once Sheldius or I pass 1000 posts. Once one of us do pass the 1000 mark, I will count up the face value of my Canadian coin jar (I haven't yet) and figure out who got the closest (in the case of a tie, I will provide a nice die clash shield cent for the person who replied second). Also, once one of us passes the 1000 mark, Sheldius (or I) will randomly pick the winner of second prize out of the people who guessed correctly which one of us would reach 1000 posts first. Whoever wins will be expected to PM their name and address to the corresponding person. (CoinHunter4 or Sheldius).


Note: Sorry, but Sheldius and I won't be shipping the prizes anywhere besides the US or Canada.

Thought I would apply a scientific approach until I read this article:

Hey congrats CH4 and Sheldius! You two are excellent forum members, and I appreciate the time each one of you has taken to help me! (Side note: I still treasure that nice lamination from your contest Sheldius )

Interesting contest, thanks so much for having it!

Here's my guess:

$34.50
CH4

Pretty disappointed that I can hold a successful giveaway that sevres mostly Americans, yet you guys can't go outside the USA or Canada.

Really destroys the goodwill.
Loving Halfcrowns. British and Commonwealth coins 1750 - 1950 and anything Kiwi.
If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.
