"Win LordM's Loot" Giveaway #4

Deadline for entries: Midnight Eastern US time, Monday, September 30, 2019.

This will be a random drawing at the end of the month, using the random.org True Random Number Generator.

Winner will get his or her choice of one item from my "Pick Bin & Giveaway Goodies" page. (Give that link a moment to load.)

To enter:

(1) Please include the words "entry post" in your initial post to this thread - and only your first post. You may reply to this thread as many times as you like, but if you put the phrase "entry post" into more than one reply, you will disqualify yourself.

(2) In addition to the words "entry post", post something else that is coin-related in some way- whatever you like.

(3) Please view the list of prizes and specify your first, second, and third choices, in order of preference.

You may edit your post to change your three prize picks at any time, but remember, only one entry post per member, and one prize.

There are no strings attached, and I pay shipping- worldwide- but if international shipping ever proves too costly on an item (or if all three of your prize picks are gone at the time of the drawing), I reserve the right to offer you a different prize or a PayPal gift instead.

Note that the prizes are drawn from my pick bin list. Ignore any pricetags you see. The list is subject to change throughout the month. Items are subject to prior sale or trade. But new items might also be added.

This is why I want you to list first, second, and third choices, and encourage you to periodically check the list for changes and new additions, and edit the selections in your entry post if you want.

Good luck! :)

For some idea of how these work, here is last month's contest.

    2) 2017 Canada large copper proof medal for Canada Sesquicentennial
    3) 1967 Panama Silver Proof Half Balboa ICG 68

    Buy stuff you teally like, not stuff other people are buying. (Unless you like that too, in which case, go for it.)

    Try to pick coins that combine eye appeal and history both.

    Mix it up nicely. Combine many different themes to make it truly eclectic.

    Do mot be afraid to cautiously strike out in new directions to explore the unfamiliar.

    Buy the most appealing examples you can find on your budget. They do not have to be Mint State or perfect, but they should be both attractive and interesting.

    Actually, you can even toss out the "attractive" requirement, if you're chasing rare quarry.

    You make your own rules.
