I have a 1856 (Slanted 5) Braided Hair Large Cent that is slabbed PCGS Genuine (Questionable Color) that I would like to give away (free shipping too) to a deserving young numismatist or an enthusiatic but financially strapped collector.
The coin appears to me to have Uncirculated or at least high AU details and has a very eye pleasing dark brown (with hints of green, esp on the reverse) look to it.
A really pretty 155 year old piece of history for free!
To win the contest, simply post your story. Some ideas ...
- how you got started in coins and/or
- why you like collecting and/or
- why you would like to have this coin
The winner will be selected by the member in this thread with the most "LIKES" attached to their their posts after 1 week (5 pm EST Monday, Nov. 21st, 2011). If a poster posts more than once and recieves likes in multiple posts, I will add up the likes. Also if there is a tie, the first person to have posted amongst the tied entrants wins.
Post your story, and hope that other CT members give you "likes". (BTW, likes on non entry posts wont be counted)
