Hey guys. I wanted to do a contest. And the prize isn't too spectacular, so I didn't want to make it too difficult. Also, I'm not very creative. So here's the contest.
Yesterday I wen to my nearest coin shop. I bought some of the Lincoln Cents, a couple coins to give away and another coin for my collection.
WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO is guess what that coin I got for my collection is. You need to guess the type, date and mintmark if you think there is a mint mark. Example of a guess would be "1950-D Jefferson Nickel"
You MUST be a forum member with at least 10 numismatically meaningfull posts here to participate. Everyone gets 2 guesses, which you are to post in this thread. Contest ends on Saturday the 18th of this month, at whatever time of day I feel like ending it. I'm just giving those 2 weeks so people who don't check in as often have a chance to enter.
I hope thats all clear. Please ask questions if its not.

P.S. I will choose the winner by whoever I think came the closest. That decision will be final.

My only clue, is that the coin you are trying to guess is not another Walker for my set  Grin

Thanks for participating guys. Remember, everyone gets 2 guesses. You can make both of your guesses right away if you want, or wait untill closer to the end of the contest. Whatever floats your boat. Cheesy

By the way, I advertised this over on coinnetwork, hoping to draw some new people here and get some more discussions going as well. I hope no one minds  Smiley

That's kind of like guessing how many stars are in the sky. It could be any thing. Could it be that you have already got hold of one of the Puerto Rico quarters? 2009-D I almost forgot to put the year and mint.  Huh

I am thinking it has to be something totally different, or somehow related to Walkers.  Adam, I thought you did not do anything but Walkers?  Diversifying?  Jeffies maybe?  I hear they have quite a following with some folks here!
