    LordM & Friends Coin Giveaway, October, 2019

    Contest now CLOSED. Winners and shipping status of prizes announced in Post #2.

    Our spokescritter this month is my cat Clyde, back by popular demand. Even though he's up in Heaven now, he's still happy to oversee another coin giveaway, just as he did back in August and May.

    Hi, everybody, and welcome to the latest monthly giveaway!

    This month there are 7 prize lots given by 6 donors.

    In other words, there will be 7 drawings and each contestant will have 7 chances to win something!

    Your entry post must meet all three of these (easy) requirements to be valid.

    1. Please include the words "entry post" in your initial post to this thread - and only your first post. You may reply to this thread as many times as you like, but if you put the phrase "entry post" into more than one reply, you will disqualify yourself.

    2. In addition to the words "entry post", post something else that is coin-related in some way- whatever you like. (Or generally numismatic in nature- currency, tokens, medals, etc. are fine.) Beginners are welcome- you don't have to know anything about coins.

    3. To expedite the prize allotments at the end of the month, please specify your prize choices, in order of preference. You don't have to list all of the prizes if you don't want to (though that helps), but do please give us at least your first three preferences. (List your first favorite choice, second favorite, third favorite, etc., in order). This speeds up the process at the end of the contest and helps ensure everyone has a better chance at getting a prize they like.

    The fine print:

    • There are no strings attached- no shipping charges or anything.
    • If your lucky number (the permalink number of your entry post) comes up in the drawing at the end of the month, you've won a prize. Drawings are done with the random.org True Random Number Generator.
    • To see how this works and has played out before, look at some of the past monthly giveaways. (I've put an archive of those here.)
    • I will gladly ship prizes outside the USA (or reimburse donor partners for doing so), but if international shipping proves too costly, we do reserve the right to substitute prizes (such as with an electronic PayPal gift, etc).
    • If you are a minor, we're delighted to have you play, but please make sure you have your parents' permission to enter this giveaway, since if you win, we will be required to ask for your mailing address.

    Our kind donor partners this month are:

    So many thanks to them for their generosity!

    Prize #1 gallery here.
    (Prize #1 is a "pick your own" option, so it has its own subcategory.)

    Have fun! :)

    Numismatic Regards,

    ~Robertson ("Rob") Shinnick, aka "Lord Marcovan"

    (Boy, I'm sure glad to see October here at last- it is always a welcome time after our long, steamy Georgia summers.)

    Assuming that I win prize #1 I'll choose the 1876 10 Rappen assuming it is still available for my Swiss Confederation type album.

    Just looking for a clarification of the rules here: is exonumia considered "coin-related"?

    Yes. Anything even remotely associated with numismatics (coins, tokens, medals, currency, etc.) is fine.

    So for my understanding the more posts you post has more of a chance to winning? I'm not fully understanding what Im not doing. Lol
