    Entry post. Thank you, once again, Lord M, for doing something you don't have to do, but yet do it so well!

    I'd pick something from Caesarea, something related to the Holy Land (Palestine, not Norway) and have it sent to @Johndakerftw.

    I'd use my 25.00 credit towards the nicest Barber Half you had in stock at time of drawing. Otherwise I'd grab a Walking Liberty Half.

    If I get lucky (actually, luckier), I will likely go with one of the 2-cent US coins; I still want one for my collection.

    As always, thanks for the opportunity to get involved with one of your fun giveaways.

    If I am lucky enough to be picked I'd use the $25 credit for the Philippine Peso (Inventory #210819-07). I like the look of the coin and it would be a very interesting new addition to my collection.

    If I win, I would lay claim to one of your 2-cent pieces.

    Thanks for the contest, Me Lord!

    Thanks again for your continued generosity.

    The silver Capped Bust Halves are calling my name. Have none and those are beauts.
    I also have no FE cents, so those are on my radar too.

    Good luck everyone!

    Awesome and diverse prizes as always LordM!
    A few years back I put together a complete 20th century type set. About 80-90% of which I accrued through circulation, coin roll hunting and as gifts. My mother works at a bank so she was able to acquire a Peace dollar and Walking Liberty half for me, among other coins, at face value. That type set remains one of the most prized pieces of my collection!
    I would like to start making a concerted effort at putting together a 19th century type set, much tougher task than the 20th century.. but as they say, "The thrill is in the hunt!"
    Therefore if I were to win id select a 19th century US coin. Most likely a flying eagle cent. Though maybe I'd spring for a 2 or 3 cent piece. Can't go wrong either way.
    Thanks for the contest, as well as your other philanthropic endeavors to promote interest in this wonderful community! Best of luck everyone!

    Entry post, the all the kitties in the picture. If my current four kitties would let them move in an' totally turn our abode into a real cathouse. Otherwise, no prize for me :(

    You can always enter the contest on someone else’s behalf.

    As to having a house chock-full of cats, I can’t see any reason at all you wouldn’t want that! :p;)

    We have one cat (a Sphinx, which is technically hairless, though they do have fuzz), a dog, 2 Lovebirds, 2 Herman's Tortoises, a snake (female Sand Boa), a fish tank full of guppies and a Chinchilla.
    Though the cat doesn't leave any hair piles, when she uses her litter box, it will literally drive you out of the room. She has 2 litter boxes, one upstairs in the kid's playroom and one downstairs in my daughter's office, where i'm at right now at my desk.
    Except for the stinky cat, we have no problems with our animals, even though the Lovebirds are sitting on their third clutch this year. So far, the young birds have been easy to give away.

    Are those the peach-faced lovebirds? We (the ex and I) had some, back in the '90s. Beautiful birds. Ear-piercingly shrill, though!

    I like guppies and bred some I'd caught in the wild when when I was a kid. I don't know where the place was, now, but just imagine being out in the woods and you look down and there's this clear stream full of colorful guppies! It was really neat. A magical kind of place.

    Maybe that was in Africa? I dunno. I was pretty young. Actually, I think it was in Florida.

    Entry post - if I win it and the prize cannot be one of the kittens, I will settle with the Ionia, Teos griffin.

    You may adopt one of the kittens soon, if you're near Glynn County, Georgia! ;):cat:

    Little Jughead, the black one, is the friendliest. I just had to evict him from my desk. He wanted to help me with my typing!

    Unfortunately the distance is about 5.461 miles (just checked) :)

    So you're saying it's walking distance. Or less than a tank of gas.

    I read that distance as under 6 miles.
