OK! the packages are signed, sealed, and addressed for mailing tomorrow.
I sent out an e-mail to each of you with your tracking numbers to watch (I paid for the absolute slowest form of delivery I could find )
I hope you will like what you get in the boxes-

(I also added 15 1930's Wheat cent coins AND 2 very rare error coins to each of you as well.)
I look forward to your responses when you get the items.

Thanks, looking forward to getting it! I'd bet I'll get it first, too, since USPS won't have much ground to cover!

My tracking currently shows Friday delivery. However, if it goes through the Little Rock distribution center it'll probably be here ahead of schedule, but if it's Memphis I'll probably get it next week sometime .

Once again, Dearborn, congrats on the big milestone, and thank you for the contest!

Yep about 15 miles as the crow flies!
But about 150 miles as USPS drives......

As predicted, I got my package and prize today! Love it when USPS can do next day shipping! Thanks so much for the RFK silver dollar and JFK silver half dollar set. I had never seen the RFK commemorative dollar in hand before. The bonus 1930's wheat cents look great. And to top it off, I got two truly rare (and possibly unique) mint errors that I've pictured below. The Washington quarter is especially amazing--I can't believe they let it escape from the mint like that. And the Shield cent struck on the wrong planchet! Hard to know how they even found a blank planchet shaped like a bowl! I'll add some pics of the RFK and JFK coins tomorrow. Thanks again for the fun contest and excellent prizes!

Dearborn, I just received my prize. Can't wait to play around with the microscope in the coming days. Also, thanks for the wheaties and the error coins. I've never seen a coin like the quarter with what looks like a sandwiched, recessed reed. Thanks again for a wonderful contest.

I received my nice prize from Dearborn today. Here is the beautiful 1990 Prestige Set I received (sorry about the quality of the pics, I just took them sitting at my desk).


And, like Zurie, I was fortunate to receive some extras from Dearborn that he must not have realized had great value! Both are incredible mint errors; the first is a Washington quarter which obviously had some serious problems with the die and/or planchet. It must be really rare. And, before you say it, NO, you don't need to see the other side of the coin nor do you need to know the weight - it's obvious this is a mint error! The second is the really astounding one, though - a concave Lincoln Memorial cent! I know the mint has made concave coins before, such as the baseball, basketball and Apollo 11 commemoratives, so there must have been a huge mixup here! This is most likely unique!!! The fact that the first concave coins were not issued by the mint until 6 years after the last Memorial cent is completely irrelevant. I can probably sell this one for thousands on Etsy. Sorry, Dearborn, your loss is my gain...


All kidding aside, this was a wonderfully generous prize, and once again I'd like to thank Dearborn for this and his interesting contest. And, one last congrats on the milestone!
