LordM & Friends CoinTalk Giveaway #40 This contest is now CLOSED. Winners were announced in Post #84 and subsequent. Brought to you by Bean, the Feline Tycoon Deadline for entries: to be announced (sometime in July) Hi, everybody, and welcome to the latest giveaway! This time there are 5 prize lots given by 3 donors. In other words, there will be 5 drawings and each contestant will have 5 chances to win something! How to enter: 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 conversationally 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. Everybody gets only one entry post per contest. But that single entry post gives you a chance in all of the drawings, so you do get multiple chances when the contests feature multiple prize drawings. 2. In addition to the words "entry post", post something else that is coin-related in some way- whatever you like. (Currency, tokens, medals, etc. are fine.) Beginners are welcome- you don't have to know anything about coins. Nor do you have to be able to post pictures. Just post something- anything- generally numismatic in nature, be it your favorite coin, a question, or a story. Whatever. 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 current replies or see the past 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 for this contest were: @lordmarcovan (yours truly) @Beardigger @dwhiz So many thanks to them for their generosity! Have fun! Numismatic Regards, ~Robertson ("Rob") Shinnick, aka "Lord Marcovan" (and generous donor partners) ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ Prizes are posted below.
