I like the idea of the monthly giveaway that Don's been doing, so I thought I'd piggyback and offer one of my own. I don't know that I'll do one regularly, just periodically. We'll see how much interest it generates.
Unlike the previous SCF donation giveaways I've held, there are no strings attached, no donation required (although I'm sure SCF would appreciate one if you're so inclined).
A month is a bit long, so let's run this through midnight central time on October 15. All those who have entered by then will go into the random number generator and I'll pull a name.
1. Anyone who is an SCF member may enter, one entry per person.
2. Enter by replying to this thread with an image of your one favorite U.S. revenue item (stamp, document, ephemera, etc.) from your collection. If you don't have any in your collection, post an image of one you've seen somewhere that you like. Also give a brief reason WHY it's your favorite. What about it trips your trigger?
3. I'll cover postage, both U.S. and international.
The prize for this first giveaway is nothing major, a few random and sundry revenues shown below. Faults to be expected (the $5 Conveyance, for example, is torn).
