Title: [SMALL] Group Buy for new Casascius Product?
Post by: johnniewalker on May 30, 2013, 10:11:21 AM
Hi,
I want a good number of these...but I definitely don't need 500. 100 maybe? Anyone else?

https://www.casascius.com/
I am talking about the aluminum coins that come in qtyx500 and only cost 1.5 BTC

I'd take 50 but I don't know where you are located. Shipping could be problematic. I'm UK based.

I can ship from US anywhere in the world for about $5..unless these things weigh a ton...not likely because they are aluminum

That'd be good. I'd not really be willing to pay much more than that since it'd just be for novelty value. They don't actually look that good in my opinion. Looks a bit like ones that were made by a very cheap manufacturer. Nothing near the quality of his others.

If you find some others willing to contribute send me a message and I'll send you the coins for my share.

Thanks.

Yes please.  I'd certainly take at least 100.

Put me down for 100 now, if there aren't a lot of takers as time goes on, I'd likely be willing to buy a bigger portion.

Hadn't seen them til you mentioned that. I don't think they're too bad. and you get 500 for 1.5 BTC, soo..
Maybe we can do a group of 5 buyers, 100 of the things each?

I suppose 100 seems to be the theme! I could buy 100. So one more person that's interested and we've got enough to buy.

They actually look quite good on the low res not-so-high-quality photo.

Anyway, I'm in for 50-100 coins if you can ship to the UK johnnie :)

Post by: dave3k on May 31, 2013, 07:44:17 PM
I'm in for up to 100 too.
Again, if the UK is fine for shipping.
Was thinking of getting some but 500 was a bit much.
Good idea.

What's the situation? I thought we could easily order the 500 :)

I assumed the OP was going to sort it out. I couldn't be bothered with the hasstle to set up the trade but would happily be involved in it.

Let's see what johnniewalker says. I might actually get a bag myself - they're fairly cheap.

If anybody else from the UK/EU would be interested in these please let me know, shipping is 0.7BTC so it would be great to order more than one bag to spread the cost.

I also got an addition to that: Mike says that it is possible to put stickers on the back. Where could we get such stickers?

I think he means make your own.

I would take 50 if still available.

Yes, but maybe we could combine this groubuy with a groupbuy of such stickers?

Well I will personally go to wallmart buy some printer stickers for $1 and print various sizes of things on to them to get the right size and then cut them out. I don't know what kind of stickers you are thinking of. Ones that are pre-cut to the correct size? Or holographic ones? I doubt he'd sell those and I don't think that's what he was meaning by make your own.

I'd be up for 50. I can probably do 100 if I need to. I'm in the Netherlands.  :)

Why not start a fixed price auction- minimum 50/person?

Post by: johnniewalker on June 12, 2013, 12:34:34 AM
Sorry, haven't been paying attention to this. I would be willing to organize this. One thing thats important to know is how much these things weigh. I can ship up to 13oz internationally for $7.50. Might need to do international shipments in 2 packages. Also, I would like to limit this to 5 people-the first ones who said they'd be willing to take 100.
As far as stickers go, I plan on just buying some address labels, print a QR code on them and sticking that on the back of the coin. Could cover it with a holo but I probably won't. I'm going to make up some business card type things saying what these are and leave them for tips when I go out to a bar or something. I'll load a small balance on them.

I would actually like more than 100 - could do whole bag... But the shipping's dear.

OK, I'll have the first 100 - or 200 if there's not enough interest.

Alright, I'm really sorry guys, but I have to bail on this. I was making up the business cards (good quality paper, perforated so you can make them yourself) to leave with one of these coins, and then I realized that [for free] I could just stick the same QR code I was going to put on the back of the coin as a sticker, on the business card. I apologize for being so cheap.

Again I apologize, and best of luck to you guys and whoever is heading this up.
