Hello members of CCF! I know it's only my 100th post, but the invaluable information I have gotten from you lot the past year I have been a member have been invaluable. As a thank you, I'd like to give back to the community with a contest.
***RULES: to enter the contest, you must have at least 50 posts. The post question is this: if your house was burning down and you could only choose one of your coins to save, which would you save and why? Photos of your coin are highly appreciated but not required.
Your post will be assigned a number, starting with 1 and going up. No limit to number of contestants, but one entry per person please. Alternative accounts will be disqualified. I will use a random # generator to get winners, first winner will get to chose their prize, then 2nd will choose one of the 3 remaining prizes, and so on. The contest will be open for 14 days, so it will close July 30 at 8PM MST. Any entries posted after this time will not be valid.
Now on to the prizes!
PRIZE 1: CLASSIC US COIN BUNDLE
Includes an example of a capped dime, a seated love token, 4 of my favorite 90% silver coin designs, and a lot of 5 cull Copper Nickel cents, one a flying eagle, as well as 2 dateless Shield nickels
PRIZE 2: MODERN US COIN BUNDLE
This lot includes a proof 1964 dime, 40% silver bicentennial half, Franklin half dollar

PRIZE 3: NIFC US COIN BUNDLE
This lot includes a 2019 Proof set(no w penny), 1973 Proof set, graded SBA

PRIZE 4: WORLD COIN BUNDLE
This lot has a great variety, including a German 100 mark note, 5 medieval tin pitis of Palembang, some attributed Asian cash coins, and a good amount of foreign "Junk" silver, as well as some cull copper coins that you can identify, and an ancient Roman coin!
*** DISCLAIMER: I will be leaving for Ireland for 5 weeks tomorrow, so due to this, I will not be able to ship the prizes until at least Aug. 21. I will announce winners before then, and ship them out right when I get back. This will give me time to acquire your address and get the winners chosen.
