    If I were participating this year, I would either wait until Christmas, or open it, take photos, and then wait until Christmas to share. Wouldn't want people to think I have no self-control :p

    Same thing goes with the packages my mom sends from Alaska....she gets sooo mad. But it works, so this year, there will be plenty of fresh baked goods! I just hope she dont wait till the 20th ugg.

    Can't rip open what you don't have yet!!!!!!!!!

    I consoled myself by going out and buying some tree ornaments

    Just to let everyone know, I will be sending out the last names of the year tomorrow. I'll also provide some statistics for us to ogle until we get to see some coins.

    ct1.jpg ct2.jpg ct3.jpg ct4.jpg ct5.jpg ct6.jpg ct7.jpg ct8.jpg ct9.jpg ct10.jpg Thank you SS! This year I received 2 mint sets, 1966 and 1967. Also a 1909 VDB cent in a better grade then anything I have. So I am really happy about that. A 1943s in unc condition, this also exceeds the best specimen I have in my collection so far. And finally, a 1940 dime that looks to be in unc condition. Thank you very much!

    This long wait (yeah, it's Dec 6 and nothing yet) is going to end up overcrowding my small tree. Had to go buy another two of these to feel better about waiting.

    Okay Folks, I've officially closed out our 2019 Secret Santa. We have a total of 49 participants, 29 states, Germany and Thailand. Our first gift has already been opened and posted, and we have a lot more to come! Only 7 of the 49 (~14%) replied with the specific request in my SS instructions. :p And I only managed to send one person the name of someone they had the previous year, but changed this when they let me know. Here's a map to show the states breakdown:

    It was a real pleasure working the secret Santa, and I cannot wait to see the rest of the gifts as they arrive and are opened. I will be happy to help you confirm a gift arrived, or manage a situation where you can't get a gift out. Merry Christmas and post those photos!

    Edit: if you've not received a message from me about who your recipient is, please message me! If you have received who your recipient is, please acknowledge receipt of that message.

    As I will be abroad during the Christmas holidays, I decided to open my gift a bit earlier... and I have to say, it was quite a surprise! No bullion (thanks, don’t need it, don’t like it) but instead Santa brought a number of Cabel&Kauffman trade tokens, a 1969 medal of the Indiana State Numismatic Association as well as... yes... you got it... two ANCIENT coins! Boy, this is new territory for me :-D

    thank you, Santa
