[CLOSED] Giveaway: 21st anniversary on the forums (2 drawings)
FINAL EDIT: this contest is now CLOSED.
@ajaan won the Latvian coin.
@Aotearoa won the Shield nickel.
Hello, everyone. I was just astonished to win a generous prize in @jessewvu 's 16th anniversary giveaway. It reminded me that not only was some "pay it forward" gesture appropriate, but also that my own 21st anniversary on the forums happens this month.
So here's something for my Darkside friends and something for my Liteside friends.
One entry post per member. Choose either the World/Darkside prize (Latvian coin) or the USA/Liteside prize (Shield nickel). Both are cleaned coins, but not harshly, and each is likely a $60-ish+ piece as-is.
I'll do a drawing for each coin on or shortly after my 21st anniversary (August 17th). Should this be delayed by my absence, you may consider the contest open for entries until such time as I return and announce the drawing.
Prize 1: Latvia: silver 5-lat, 1929, PCGS UNC details, cleaned.
I never noticed the cleaning, myself. This would be a $100-ish coin without it, I believe. It's a lovely piece, regardless. It is a silver dollar sized coin, if you’re not familiar with the type.
Prize 2: USA: Shield nickel, 1869, ANACS EF40 details, cleaned.
Really not bad looking despite the label notation (and these pictures). Numismedia trends $72 in XF. Ex-Julian Leidman. This would be a good Dansco 7070 album coin if cracked out. That's why I bought it, but I ended up using a different one in my 7070.
Congratulations on your milestone LordM and thank you for the opportunity. (Liteside)
Congrats, quite a milestone worthy of celebration. Nice prizes to anticipate. The 5 cent is my huckleberry. Have a good day. Peace Roy

Wow 21years ? I've got like 21 minutes here. Both ends of the spectrum. Congrats! I look forward to sharing and learning from the vets. I like the shield.
Wow, 21 years, or 7,655 days. Did some quick math and with the number of posts you've made here on the forum, that averages to 5.53 posts per day for over two decades - no wonder I always see your name popping up in discussions and comments here ! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity, I'd love the shield nickel should I win, and congratulations on the upcoming anniversary!
Thanks for your many giveaways and generosity!! I have a bunch of raw jeffs and a few raw buffs, so that nickel would be a welcome new addition
