    LordM Giveaway #85 (pick your prize)

    Contest status: CLOSED
    Drawing (@ZoidMeister won)
    Shipped 13 March 2023 (lost in shipment but eventually rec'd)

    Winner's notice of receipt


    Hello, everyone, and welcome to the latest giveaway. This will be another one of my "pick your prize" contests, so you can hopefully win something you'll like.

    The prize for this contest will be your choice of an item from one of the following three categories.

    Pick one of the following:

    Ancient Category (Coin A)

    Roman Empire: silver denarius of Trajan, ca. 98-117 AD; Mars advancing

    World Category (Coin B)

    German States (Hamburg): silver 8-schilling of Charles VI, Holy Roman Emperor, 1727-IHL

    United States Category (Coin C)

    United States: silver Morgan dollar, 1882

    To enter: all you have to do is say that you want in, and specify which item you would like if you should happen to win the random drawing. Also a word or two about why you want it, or some other coin-related comment of your choice. Only one entry post per contestant, please.

    You may enter on someone else's behalf if you do not desire the prize for yourself. Simply state who you would like to receive it, should your entry win the drawing.

    The drawing will be held sometime on or after March 1, 2023, depending on my schedule. You may consider the contest open for entries until such time as I have posted the final result of the random drawing.

    Totally free: the contest is free of charge, open to everyone, with free worldwide shipping. The only obligation is that I ask that if you win, please post to this thread later, when you have received the prize, so that we'll know you got it (that helps me keep track).

    Good luck!

    Numismatic regards,

    ~Robertson ("Rob") Shinnick ("LordM")

    Entry post for coin B, please. As I keep looking around in the world and ancient coin realm, I continually am drawn to coins that look like this one.

    Thanks for the chance, Rob!

    This is an entry post for bigtime36 on Collectors Universe, who is interested in Coin C (the Morgan dollar) because it was struck 100 years before his birth.

    Hi @lordmarcovan! Thanks for the contest!

    If I were to win, I'd love Option A, the Roman Empire: silver denarius of Trajan, ca. 98-117 AD; Mars advancing!

    Why? Because I only have one ancient coin, and he needs a brother to keep him company!

    Thanks again!

    This post is an entry for WAYNEAS on Collectors Universe, who is interested in Coin A.

    (You might see a few of these since I told the folks on the CU forums who don't have CT credentials that they could message me and I would post an entry for them over here.)

    Even though I do not have a Trajan with Mars reverse, I am going to try my luck again on that beautiful 8 Schilling. Thanks for another chance and good luck to all who enter.
