u1chicago giveaway of ex-braddick collection charmed Ike (Winner chosen)
Some might have seen these threads from our very own @braddick regarding his Ike. It's a nice common clad proof Ike with an unusual non cameo grade (unusual since most Ikes of this era are at least Cameo and the coin appears to have enough for the designation, so maybe it is just a mechanical error). Well what made things even more odd was that he auctioned it three times and none of the buyers ever paid (even when it sold for $10 with free shipping). When I saw that he listed it for a fourth time, I wanted to make sure that would be the charm. I bid "aggressively" and won the coin at 27.77. I made sure to pay for it too!
In one of the threads someone suggested (probably as a joke) that the coin should be given away on this forum. Well that seemed like a good idea to me so that is what will happen.
In order to qualify:
(1) post in this thread with the words "entry post" at the beginning of your post...only one entry post per username
(2) have a US shipping address
(3) [optional but recommended] tell us a story about a coin that was either jinxed or charmed
(4) I will pick a random winner at the end of the week (evening of 10/8/22 as the tentative date)
Update: @Bigbuck1975 is our winner!
