    As the title says, I am requiring a 100 post minimum for entry and the contest is simple: guess how much I paid for the books and coins below. This isn’t the Price is Right so no “without going over clause”. It’s just whoever is closest. I will ship outside the US so everyone is welcome to play.

    This contest will last 1 week and end next Sunday morning, 18 Nov at 10am EST. The prize (or prizes?) has not been determined yet. When the winner is declared, I’ll do some research and try to match the prize to the winner’s interests.

    So with that out of the way,
    I had a good day at one of my local stops. I’m not into paper money but I do love books. So here is the stack I bought with all the titles and authors visible.

    Also picked up some silver. The keychain is stamped sterling which I believe is visible. The 5 euro French coin is a .500 fine circulating commemorative coin from 2008. The small one with the hole is a sterling piece engraved “Aug 4, ‘45” but isn’t a love token. The others are easily identifiable.

    So good luck and good guessing.

    $35. It hurts my heart to see that Mexican 5 Pesos turned into a keychain :( It is one of the few silver Mexican pesos I'm missing in my collection. Can't find one at a decent price. Hope you got yours for a good price :)

    I thought I was going to be insulting at $147.50 but feel better about it. :)

    $20, but if I win, I just want the Fuld, and you can send the others to the next one. Jim

    Check eBay as I’ve seen a few MS 63 certified ones sell for under $30 (raw UNC can also be found in that price range).
