Your explanation is too vague, can you describe "It" with a little more panache

First time entering a competition here! It's super generous of you to have international postage too (I'm in the UK)
I really like #8. It's such a quirky shape, and the lion on the obverse is fantastic. I also collect ancients, and this would add some variety to my collection. I don't actually have any coins in holders, so even one in a 'nonsensical' holder would be cool!
I can't help it.
I gotta get #22.
I am truly a Barber nut!
I like the look of the coin, and I don't have any Braided Hair large cent coins yet.
Love Walking Liberties and don't have a 1917-s reverse.
Nice Commodus sestertius, I dont own one yet, would live happily between my other Sestertii.
What happened with that sweet little kitten Penny, her nose is damaged ?
In dutch its called a lapjes kat= multicoloured.

Gota get me them errors. I love when machinery screws up, it use to keep me employed.
This is Adora Sergeevna Kakeshkina, she is two years old now but still kitten sized and kitten meowed. She thinks her meowmmy would like #7 the Tang Dynasty coin, because she collects coins from China.
I like to search old pennies for any and all variations of irregularities and interesting finds.
#27. (100 coins) United States: bronze Lincoln Wheat cents; two solid-date circ rolls, 1927 & 1952 (likely all Philadelphia mint coins) (+ "mystery bonus" items)
How about #32...I have saved rolls of these from circulation, but no silver clad ones.
Chose #34 at last drawing...deferring to seniority... the penny rolls look good ...have hunted through so many ...this might be exciting .! Someone likes this also...let's go with #17... I've always appreciated the class of the older American coinage ...this would be a good start for further involvement...!
ANY PRIZE would have me doing cart wheels but #s 13, 15 or 16 are of particular beauty to me as I especially enjoy Reales and/or do not own a braided hair.
Good luck all.
Dear Grumpy Kitty,
I personally love the 1964 Proof Coin because I used a 1964 quarter to dance light and shadow into a waltz, spinning the invisible elephant in the room into a visible rainbow. Jesus said he was going to make the invisible-visible. Whats 2k years when your having so much fun with your friends. And when I thought I was saving Earth, the Nebulas was saving me. That quarter would be a visible keepsake to memorialize my friendship with space elephants. Remembering their patience, guidance, understanding, wisdom, companionship, endless laughs and most importantly the love they always shined into my heart.

#24. Mexico: silver peso, 1923-M
I love the design and would certainly give that piece a nice home.
I was tempted by the Mexican silver peso – it has a snake in it. ColonialCoinsUK ’s posting “What does the snake represent?” showed up on CoinTalk January 6th. I forwarded the discussion to my son who is a naturalist and who has done research on, keeps, and teaches about snakes. He really enjoyed the posting and appreciated the linked resources. He emailed me that he liked that “the snake is a symbol of public safety”. So now I want to get a “snake” coin for him, but I used the excuse of the peso’s snake getting eaten by the eagle to instead go with the Barber half for me and keep looking for a “healthy, uneaten” snake coin for him.
Entry post. I choose 31. Cuz I love this giveaway. Love free stuff. The prizes are beautiful And good luck to all
#24 I like the design of the Mexico Peso and don't own one yet.
Thank you for your generosity.
@Clavdivs in my place instead, because last month he put up a contest for new collectors in the Ancients section; since in my opinion it was a very noble and generous thing for him to do, I'm nominating him as a sign of respect and appreciation for his desire to help others get started in our beloved hobby.
