    @Mr_Spud nice choice. How did you get the black background with it? It looks better with the black background.

    I changed it to black using Xircle App, an app that does nothing else except crops pictures into circles and let’s you change the background to whatever color you want, and then I merged the 2 images using the “collage” function in Photoshop Express.

    @Treashunt One of my favorites. Color is lighter than the TruView, but it has an excellent strike for a 23 S.

    @Namvet69 kinda beat me to it, but

    I like your 1877-s Trade Dollar because it resembles my latest coin pick up

    Thanks for the giveaway chances!

    It's all about what the people want...

  • gumby1234gumby1234 Posts: 5,362 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @alaura22 Glad you figured it out. The 1844 half was posted and members said it was whizzed so I sold it off. Got $400 from a dealer who pointed out it had been messed with.

    @alaura22 No you aren't eliminated from the giveaway because I sold the coin. You still have the same chance as any of the entries.

    @Paradisefound and @DBSTrader2 You are supposed to post a coin that I own that you like. Noce coins both of you by the way.

    I went for a non-US (but still US) coin. Love the color of this centavo and has a very interesting history too! Thanks for the opportunity and happy 4th to all!

  • gumby1234gumby1234 Posts: 5,362 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @MJ1927 good choice. I will probably get it certified someday.

    gumby1234: I tried to copy & past your pic of your (or at least I thought it was yours) Trade Dollar from one of your posts, but it created it in a format that this forum doesn't accept. So I went online & found a similar 1877-S pic, in the hope that it would qualify in the spirit of the giveaway......... Does it? Thx!

    @DBSTrader2 I guess if you are having technical issues that we can let your entry count. :)

  • First I want to say thanks for letting me join my very first giveaway here second of all I have to say it's this toned coin very pretty although I don't think you own it anymore

  • gumby1234gumby1234 Posts: 5,362 ✭✭✭✭✭

    @Nikkibabyblue2000 Nice choice. Welcome to the forum. Actually I do still own it and it twin sister. They look almost identical.

    You'll be weeding out the technologically challenged but luckily I figured out that I could just copy your picture from another thread and drop it here. ;)

    Sorry @Mr_Spud but you picked my coin also. Nothing saying I can't repeat, just that I must like it. Right? Shame regarding the spots, but is what it is. I have several 16's with woodgrain effect, but none this attractive. Thank you for the generous contest. gumby.

    I picked it from what I thought was your list. I dislike computers and the whole internet.
    How about your 49s Roosie with your favorite toning. I’ll never find a picture of it but that’s ok.
    Sorry 😉🙀🦫

    @crazyhounddog Theres probably a better pic of that coin somewhere. That is one that I got from Ron Pope shortly before he passed. Ron was such a great guy.
