I am going to put together a group of coins that will probably be of interest to a newer collector. None of them will be terrible but there could be some problem coins in the group. I haven't pulled them all together yet but there will be a variety of coins totaling maybe $100 or so in value. I'll try to get a good cross section in there.
So with that being said, if you are a collector who would be interested in a group of random coins please say so below to be entered in the giveaway.
When will it end? Let's go with Tuesday evening, I'll choose a winner by random number generator.

Collector, occasional seller

    Don't want to spoil, here's a blurry photo of the pile I have together so far. More might be added as I organize.

    Looks like fun. I like giving away coins, but I don't have that many lower value ones without personal significance, so this could refill my stock.

    As Joey said. Very nice gesture. Some new collector will be happy and get an educational experience.
    At over 5,000 posts I’m anything but new so please accept my praise but these need to go to a new home where they will become a part of their collecting experiences.

    Shane isn't it awesome.
    That Peace dollar looks good. Now your hooked......
    It's better than expected what a positive thing to do for the community.
    Just when I was feeling a little bummed out about my mistakes I was lifted up.
    This forum has some good members!
    I'm going to do a giveaway soon myself. Sometime in March.
