Normally I print out small slips with our booth number on them and we take turns walking around handing them out to kids. Well I had a different idea this year. LiveanDieVarieties donated a ton of rolls of BU 60's Lincoln Cents. I'm gonna write the booth number on the 2X2s and we'll hand those out.

Has anyone ever tried handing out empty 2x2s with instructions (written on the flip) to come by the booth to fill it up with a free coin? I may try this at our next coin show.

BTW, great donation and great work.

Or walk around with maybe some coins (cents & nickels) and tell them there are more prizes at our booth :-)

You could get the pages to invite all the kids since most of the pages are kids :)
