    Entry Post:
    Wow, what a chance, thanks to @dwhiz for this opportunity (I really like Kennedy halves so any of these would be a great addition to my collection, especially the '95-S) :)
    I'm 18 and have been collecting for a little over 5 years, I really got interested when my Dad took me on a trip to the UK and I made it a goal to get one coin and note of each denomination from each country we visited, from then on I haven't stopped!! :)

    So here's my pictures, I know to a lot of you older collectors this is nothing really special because they were made during your lifetime, but to me these old-ish bank notes are really interesting because they are a different style/design and were made before I was around (1985 for these particular ones), also paper money doesn't normally last more than 4-10 years on average so when I find one in circulation it gets me really excited that it lasted 35+ years and is still in reasonably good condition.
    IDK, maybe that's just odd and not many can relate, but... I think its really cool! 20210221_193438.jpg 20210221_193524.jpg

    Good on you for your continued generosity, @dwhiz! :)

    I've edited your title to reflect the contest being closed, but I'll wait a while before locking down the thread completely, so your winners will have time to post about the receipt of their goodies.

    Thank you so much, dwhiz! I'm very surprised and happy -- this made my day! I'm sorry to have delayed sending you my address. The past few days have been very busy for me, so I appreciate your patience. Running this contest was extremely generous of you, and I can't thank you enough. Booker T. Washington was a fascinating guy and definitely one of the most deserving people ever commemorated on any US coin, not just the half. And thanks to all y'all other young numismatists who make this community a great place to be as well.

    The wooden dollar goes great with his @lordmarcovan wooden dollar :)
    Thanks again for the contest!
