Merp. Tomorrow being my 1 year coin talk anniversary I wanted to shout a big THANK YOU to everyone on the site! The knowledge, enthusiasm and fun I've gained from you all is priceless...in USD. Probably about 2 mil in euros (that's a joke and a favor to those of you who have yet to bid in an auction "across the pond". The Dollar to Euro ratio can be pricey if not observed). Looking at the numbers: I've posted just over a thousand comments and received just under five thousand likes. So I'm averaging about 5 (under that a bit and I know it) likes per immature comment or schwaggy coin I post. Coin talk says I am, at this point, worth 113 points. A couple quick questions: How many Denarii is that? And how do I trade these points in for said Denarii? Anywho, within a month and a half of when I 1st came onboard it was @Severus Alexander's anniversary. He did a very fun giveaway, that I won! It wasn't so much about the winning (its always about the winning) but more about the heart this place has. We can learn and share and give together and to eachother. It was an eye opener. And one of the many reasons why I keep coming back. That all said (shut up Ryro and get to the free shiz), time to give away a really amazing book that covers just over nine thousand years, or so, of activity on a small, but amazing, island called Cyprus. And a beautiful"ish" coin that was made there. Entering is simple. 1st: Have somewhere in America that I can send the coin to. I'm not against any specific country (other than music) but have 3 young dudes to think about on a plebs salary. Oh, and a wife with a healthy Amazon obsession. 2nd: Type "Entry post" if you dig Cyprus. New or experienced to coin talk. Young or old (I'm neither, so don't qualify for my own giveaway). 3rd: Share your favorite CT post, moment or coin. Whatever makes you smile bout da joint. And to whom goes the coin and book?? As my 2nd boys namesake will tell ya, "To the strongest." (jk. He's eleven months. All he'll tell ya is, "Goo goo ging ging."
