    Update: this giveaway has CLOSED for entries, now.

    Please see the link in my signature line for the current giveaway.

    Happy March, everybody!

    As per my usual practice, this will be a totally random drawing (two drawings, actually), with the winners selected by the random number generator at random.org.

    Last month we had a big sack of tokens and 10 trillion Zimbabwe dollars from me, and a Red Seal $2 bill put up by @ace71499.

    This month I'm giving away another rather large lot o' stuff, and @dwhiz was also kind enough to offer up a prize as well.

    So let's get on with the March giveaway!

    The only thing you need to do to enter is put the words "Entry Post" in your initial post to this thread, to distinguish it from any secondary commentary posts. If the random number generator lands on the number for your Entry Post, you've won a prize. One entry post per member, though you may post as many chatty comments as you like.

    If you like, you may also post your personal feelings and/or plans, now that Spring has almost sprung!

    This month there will be two drawings, like last month, and the prizes are shown below.

    Winners will be drawn on or shortly after April 1, 2018. (No foolin'!)

    The @lordmarcovan prize:

    (60) assorted World coins in 2x2 holders with printed labels, all inside a little H.E. Harris stockbook.

    No duplicates. No silver, but some UNC coins and older pieces. Good mix of countries. An ideal "starter" lot for a young collector or someone who's wanting to delve into World coins for the first time. Maybe enough variety to provide some fun for an established World coin collector as well.

    Sorry the photos aren't the best.


    The @dwhiz prize:

    A proof 1980-S USA Susan B. Anthony dollar in a "TruGrade" slab.

    I dunno about @dwhiz's offering, but I can definitely state that the photos of my lot do the coins no justice at all. There are some pretty pieces in there.

    Case in point: there's one of those lovely so-called "Flying Nude"* Italian 20-centesimi pieces from the early 1900s in there. The KM#44 type.

    My photo of that page is so poorly focused you can barely see the coin.

    (*Liberty is not really nude on those- just rather wispily-clad, as she soars aloft with her torch.)

    OK, I see the mods have moved this to the Contests forum, so that's where I'll post them from now on.

    Wasn't sure about that, since I had figured "contests" implied skill or knowledge, and these are outright giveaways, and random.

    But "Contests" forum it shall be.

    Perhaps I will finally get off my rump this spring and rent a metal detector and try it out. My back is not the greatest and I need to see how long I can take it before I buy one.

    Looking forward to spring and going up to the cabin. Unfortunately, spring doesn't come there until June, give or take a couple of weeks.
