"Win LordM's Loot" Giveaway #13 (aka CoinTalk Giveaway #55)

https://www.cointalk.com/threads/lordm-giveaway-55-pick-your-prize.379265/

This is another CoinTalk giveaway, but it is also open to Collectors Universe members.

When you post an entry here, just follow the same guidelines mentioned in the thread over there.

You may also post one entry per site, so if you have a CoinTalk membership you may post one there in addition to your entry here, thereby doubling your chances in the random drawing.

All entries from both sites will be tallied up in the same drawing, which should be held sometime in mid-May (2021).

    If I won I would put the winnings towards the reales. Thank you!

    I don't have a 63-D Benjie yet, so it might be that. But some of those proofs are also tempting. Thanks for the chance!

    @YoloBagels and @AZSteve - your entries have been posted on the CoinTalk thread.

    This was received in change at the Pizza Shop. Notice the strong die gouge or polish line in the field next to Lincoln’s face.

    Man, that looks like a proof. But the mintmark looks like a D? Am I just seeing things? Nice flashy find, regardless.

    It’s an S, just an out-of-focus shot. Someone must’ve busted into Dads collection somewhere. I took it home and saved it, being the hoarder that I am. Lol

    If I won, I'd put my $25 credit towards the Panamanian balboa or the Mt. Argaeus provincial.

    Anyway, to add something related to numismatics, here are a pair of recent acquisitions from a defunct local bank that I'm quite excited about.

    Cool notes! Fun vignettes and such. I like stuff like that, though I stick to round metallic items rather than paper.

    Tennessee, eh? Here is a TN token I picked up last June. I'm not thrilled with the existing photos of it. Looks nicer in person.

    That's a nice token, @lordmarcovan. I'm pretty sure I remember you posting this over on Cointalk a few months back. Regardless, it's certainly in better shape than the $2 note I posted.

    I would put it towards the 1917 Standing Liberty Quarter. Love the look of that coin!

    Entry post. If I were to win I would chose the CBH or a flying eagle cent. Thanks for the chance!

    I would put it towards one of the flying eagle or Indian head cents for my 12YO son's collection.

    I'd have to start with the 1919-P Walker, as it's both under-budget AND one I still need!! Then I could also apply the balance towards the 1899-O Barber half, since I don't have any of that series. Thx for the giveaway opportunity!!

    Did I win ?

    Hi, folks. After a hectic late spring and busy summer, with some challenges presented by “real” life, I went on hiatus from the hobby completely. I did try to wrap up all of my sale and swap obligations beforehand, but left the giveaway business dangling because I thought I’d be back in time to deal with it.

    Alas, that did not happen, and my absence ended up being protracted to nearly three months. Sorry.

    Then when I came back and caught up with everything on CoinTalk, and very belatedly did the drawing for this contest, I completely forgot to come back here to CU and check for new entries since my last update.

    This means that the last few folks who entered here were accidentally omitted from the drawing. Sorry about that. Let me check back here and see who you were, and I’ll see that you get extra entries in my new (bigger) giveaway.

    Let me track back and catch up here, and I’ll make it up to y’all.

    OK-

    I believe the following folks' entries from this site did not get tallied over on the CT thread prior to the final drawing for this (CT Giveaway #55). I notice that some of you did manage to post your own CT entries directly under your credentials there. Those entries did get counted, but just did not win in the drawing. It's only your late-breaking CU entries over here in this thread that did not get counted.

    I believe y'all are:

    @Rob9874
    @Kliao
    @MJ1927
    @Raybob15239
    @DBSTrader2
    @JimW

    Each of you has now gotten a free entry in the new CoinTalk Giveaway #57. This is in addition to any entries you may decide to post on that giveaway here, or directly on CT. At the bare minimum, you each now have one chance in the drawing, to make up for my overlooking you here in Giveaway #55.

    I don't see an entry post for you here in this thread. If you entered over on CT, you did get counted. But regardless, no, you didn't win- someone from CoinTalk did.

    Sorry I was away so long.
