beautiful! and congradulations!
What contest sponsored by whom?
Oh and congrats on the prize!
It was sponsored my modern coin mart, and it was a voting contest. What you had to do to enter was write a very short (1000 character) essay about what you would do if you were director of the mint. I managed to get the second highest amount of votes, so I picked this prize since it has a higher value then the other prize I could have picked. There were 3 prizes- a 2012 early release MS70 $10 gold eagle, my prize, and 2 out of the 5 silver eagles of the 2011 set graded PF70 and MS70. They have contests every once in a while.
Hey nice job wheaty. You really had some great ideas. Do you still have the link?
I think you should share your essay here and let us know what you would do in the big chair.
Where is your essay posted? I'd like to read a winning essay. Seems it would be very interesting.
Or recreate the essay in summary form.
