    Hi. Since the regular July giveaway got postponed (I'm working on it, but there are lots of donor contributions that need to be photographed), here's a special, simpler giveaway.

    You see, I was recently on the end of a very lopsided and generous deal, whereby a kind stranger knowingly sold me what is essentially a $500+ coin for the princely sum of one dollar.

    So I've got some "paying it forward" to do.

    The prize here is just a modest bauble, but hey, it's old gold.

    Winner of the drawing at the end of the month will get one of these cute little gold fanams from Southern India, circa 1700-1830. They are extremely tiny, but that kind of adds to their appeal, in a weird way.


    As with the regular monthly giveaways, all you need to do is post the words "entry post" in your initial post to this thread, and only your initial post. Reply as many times as you like, but if you put the phrase "entry post" into more than one post, you will disqualify yourself.

    Winning entry post will be selected by random number generator on or shortly after July 31, 2019.

    Good luck, and thanks again to my benefactor.

    I believe the design is supposed to represent the goddess Kali somehow.

    (Possibly upside-down in the coin photos above.)

    She's just some circles and shapes on these coins, but quite a bit fiercer looking in other representations!


    Also- there is a parallel giveaway on Collectors Universe, and I'm giving away two fanams (one on each site), so if you have membership over there, you may enter the CU giveaway to double your chances.

    Aww, bummer. Disqualified for posting more than one entry post. :(

    Read the directions, y'all. They're even simpler than usual, and you don't have to solve a riddle or write a poem or stand on your head.

    Really, there's only that one rule this time around.

    Multiple discussion/chatty replies are welcome, for the sake of conversation, but only one entry post per member.

    (Per forum site, that is. You may of course also enter the parallel contest on Collectors Universe.)
