Tonight, I reached 9,000 posts and you know what that means!

Yep, I will be holding a contest when I reach 10,000!

That's a solemn promise, but, come on folks! No contests at all? Let's get some juices flowing. Prizes don't have to be expensive. I have received items from other members for free without a "contest" and that can certainly translate into a game of sorts. Maybe Spring Cleaning could be a motivator?

Spring cleaning uncovered an open roll of bright and shiny uncirculated 1980 p Lincoln pennies.

Willing to give one per member till gone, if there is any interest.

Not sure how to cover postage if there was to be a big response.

Any thoughts?

Maybe mail an envelope with address and stamp to you. Would a penny go through the mail? I think a 1980 B U cent is worth that.

Maybe I'll award you a bonus point when the actual contest comes around. It is several months away, I am sure.

One cent in a 2x2 can be sent in an envelope with a Forever stamp, but T-BOP's idea would be more simple on your end and lower on shipping, as he said. Either way, feel free to start a new topic in this forum to get the proper attention.

During an inventory of the safe I came across an open roll of 1980 p Lincoln cents.

So we'll have a little contest. This day and age most questions can be answered quickly by your phone, Siri, Alexis ... so after searching the following riddle the results are a bit vague.

The first 10 correct answers to the riddle and pm me with name and address will receive 1 bright and shiny BU penny !! Woo hoo

I have 3 digits. The tens place is 3 more than the ones place the hundrends place is 2 more than the tens place. What number am I?

Good luck!

Sorry wrong place !

By the way, I am still planning to hold a contest, but it will have to wait for at least 740 more posts.
