    This post (#21) is an extra bonus entry post for Azjedi on Collectors Universe, because he is a 9-year-old YN working on a Dansco 7070 album, which I think is super cool. So if the random number generator hits #20 or #21 when the drawing comes around, he will win.

    1947 Panama Un Centavo starting to turn a lovely color.
    I would choose your United States: proof Jefferson nickel, 1962, PCGS PR66 as it is my Birth Year

    Nice Panamanian! Even better, it's a Balboa, not a centavo!

    I got that 1962 nickel you like as part of an inexpensive 2-piece lot of PCGS Jeffersons. I kept the other one, a 1965 SMS, for my collection, since it was from my birthyear.

    (PCGS SP67)

    Yep, I noticed that, too. He probably meant to type "Balboa", and "centavo" slipped out instead. I catch myself having little brain hiccups like that fairly often. Sometimes I don't discover them until long after the fact.

    I'd much rather have the Balboa!

    @expat- I am tired myself. It is only 6:21 PM in Georgia, but I have been up since about 3:30 AM. The typos will begin any moment now, if I haven't already made several and overlooked them.

    @Bradley Trotter - I like the flava' of your Flavian!

    FFFF= Fabulous First Flavian, Friend!

    Here is a posthumous issue of the same fella.

    Welcome, @VRSilver! As you know from our prior conversation, I am a fan of Hungarian denars. Never had one as early as yours there, though. Looks like you aren't having any image posting problems here, which is encouraging.

    I have a stray 1577 denar around here somewhere, which will certainly be an obtainable prize selection for this giveaway later, once I get pictures of it uploaded.

    Nope, normal options to post pictures here. Totally different for me than in that album. Very cool contest, and yea working on getting types of earlier rulers here and there. Love how Game of Thrones this thing looks, super pretty design.

    True, I did not read it all, but it's OK. I hope whoever wins, enjoys.
