Here are the details for the first competition. Thought I would post info a little early so you have time to prepare😋 NOTE info on the type of coin you will be searching for will not be posted on this thread until late the night before or early that morning of the start date.
All members are welcome and encouraged to join in from the ‘new to the hobby’ to the pros. It would be nice if the mystery coins/s you find had a wee mention in show and tell as well along with other bits and bobs you collected on that hunt, but only if you wish to do so.
For these competitions to be successful and have a future, they require 100% honesty, so no cheating. As time goes by we can mix things up a bit more but for starters simple is best. (Hence the changes )
PLEASE NOTE THE NEW SIMPLIFIED PICTURE/PHOTO CHOICES
Sorry to change things already but like anything new it sometimes happens. Hopefully the changes will make things easier for all who wish to enter
Start 9th September @9.00 am
Finish 18th September @ 9.00 pm
You are searching for one type of coin only (to be advised) with a mystery date which I have decided on.
First to post a pic on THIS THREAD with a matching coin and date wins, if comp finishes with no match then closest to the date wins, a draw? then first of the two members to post wins… Simple enough.
It’s completely optional whether the following image features in your photos and your mystery coin pics can be taken either during the hunt or at home once your coin/s are cleaned up. But please ensure your photos clearly show the coins date
Finally no enteries accepted after 9pm Sunday.
I will take a pic of the prize (not trying to put you off but they are basically worthless) and the said mystery coin before the comp starts.
Good luck to all and have fun… Hope I haven’t missed anything Mmm yes that’s right the winner once notified will need to PM me a name and address to post prize to
