Rules for the 1st Annual “Show Off your Toners” Contest

Rather than send people away from these forums and to the competition:


Rules for the 1st Annual “Show Off your Toners”


1. Anyone entering a coin MUST be a member of the TCCS

2. Coin(s) entered must be owned by you.

3. If you’re a Dealer, coin must be part of your collection and not part of your Inventory that is currently for sale.

4. Only 1 coin can be entered in each category per person. (We only have limited space - 1 case - when its full entries will be closed)

5. Must be at the Scheduled Meeting at 11:30 am Thursday August 19th in Room 323 David L. Lawrence Convention Center to put your coin(s) in the single case that we will have for display purposes. (Thanks to Tonekiller for agreeing to supply us with a case).

6. Your coin(s) MUST have your name on the side that is NOT up for display. Raw coins in some type of Holder are acceptable but PLEASE NO coins that are not in some type of protective holder.

7. Best toned coins will be determined by ballot - only TCCS members can vote - If there’s any interest, we may consider a “Best of Show” award.


I have no clue as to what prizes the winner will receive, maybe a certificate, maybe a toned coin (we’ll determine that when we get to Pittsburgh) - but we will publish the winners on our website and if anyone has a digital camera we’ll try and take photos to upload as well.

(Note to self: In addition to Eureka’s Scotch, Bring digital camera!)

It's too bad I can't make the show, it would be terrific to see these coins and I would make an effort to dredge out some of my best, too.
