    As you can see it bears Maria Theresa Thaler image on the REVERSE - that coins discussed in another thread.


    Some rules:

    No Rules - closest price wins, with preference given to LOWER price as in example below



    closing spot ie. $30.84

    bidder A : $30.89 ( 5c over )
    bidder B: $30.79 ( 5c under )
    all other bidders outside of this range

    than bidder B wins the prize !

    - any questions feel free to ask -

    Yes well done, congratulations.

    The birth of my son one year ago, bought out feelings that i never knew existed within me.

    I'm sure you will experience the same, all the best.

    There seems to be this phsyco barrier so i'll go for:

    $29.30

    Cheers

    It's great to see another proud Dad, congratulations, I think being a parent is the best job in the world. My 1st is a 5 week old boy and he has given me feelings I can't put into words, it's the best thing I have ever done.

    As I didn't budget for the baby bonus he's getting some 2010 coins put away for his 21st!
