Flash Giveaway! Nice GB mixture - closes tomorrow morning!

Post by Bill H UK »

I've been sorting my latest auction buys and, as usual, ended up with a pile of surplus GB.

I have a bag of a couple of hundred to give away - nothing too exciting, all predecimal, mostly QE2 commems, with a lot of mint, some KG6 and a few older. Here they are:

If you'd like them, please respond below. Don't want to spend too much time on this, so you have until 10:00 am UK time tomorrow (14th June) to put your entry in.

Winner will be selected by random number draw shortly after. (post free anywhere). Might be a couple of surprise bonus additions, too, if I sort them in time!

Good luck!

Winner is no.6 - PHRAGG99!
Thanks for showing this Bill. I keep thinking I must do a giveaway when I have time. Your short time scale limits the number of participants and keeping it to one per person limits the admin involved. Lastly there is the RNG, but I see how you did that as well, having just searched; there was nothing like that on Google results when I last looked - but that was many years ago!

There's loads of RNGs available, Ian, some quite elaborate - spinning wheels and the like!

I've been picking up so much loose stuff at auctions there is always a surplus, and I think it's nice to move it on, let someone else pick what they want, then they'll probably give the rest away, too. That's fine.

If it's a decent prize then I like to make a bit more of an event out of it, and just offering stuff to the 'first to claim' is a little unfair, I think. But for a pile like this, this method worked OK. Doing a long running, enter many times comp like some do creates an awful lot of work at the end - I won't be doing that again! :lol:
