1  Economy / Collectibles / Casascius Silver 1BTC FIRST-OWNER PGP DOCS -- RESERVE AUCTION -- ADVANCE NOTICE on: October 17, 2017, 01:14:07 PM
Hi folks

I am planning to offload a coin via reserve auction. The auction will likely run for the entire month of November.

Why am I telling you about it now? Because I want to give everyone *plenty* of warning, and make sure nobody misses out.

WHY A RESERVE AUCTION?

Because I'd like to reserve the right to keep the coin if I'm not happy with the top bid. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT BIDS LOWER THAN RESERVE WILL BE REJECTED. IT MEANS THEY WILL BE ACCEPTED OR DECLINED AT MY DISCRETION.

More details and stuff to come in a couple weeks. Not many first-owner coins with PGP docs floating around, so this might be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the collector who has it all!

3  Economy / Collectibles / [INTEREST CHECK ONLY] Casascius 1BTC Silver, original owner w/ PGP docs on: November 05, 2016, 04:13:39 PM
Thinking about selling my last remaining 1 BTC Casascius silver.

Ungraded, immaculate condition, PGP proof of ownership + signed PDF, has not been in anyone's possession except Casascius himself and the mailman, who probably didn't know what he was carrying.

I am thinking about selling this coin some time in mid-December, possibly by auction but probably by EOI (expression of interest) only.

Please note that because the coin is still in the possession of its original owner, it is expected to fetch a higher price than one which has been in an unknown number of hands over the past several years.

Photos won't be shared at this time, interested buyers are expected to do their own research on my background and what sort of condition my coins are kept in.

Cheers Smiley
4  Economy / Collectibles / [AUCTION] Spirit of Satoshi Cert of Authenticity ARTIST'S PROOF [only 2 made] on: August 04, 2016, 11:36:40 PM
I am clearing out the studio and thought someone might like this.

Several years ago, [in]famous (former) forum member Goat asked me to design and hand-print a series of Certificates of Authenticity for a physical cryptocurrency item he was producing. The item itself never got off the ground, but I did go through quite a large amount of effort designing and producing exactly TWO copies of the CoA. One copy was sent to Goat for approval and I retained one copy as a colour proof for the production run. My copy is now up for auction, as I figured this may pique the interest of the collector who has everything!

ONE OF ONLY TWO COPIES IN EXISTENCE. HAND-SILKSCREEN PRINTED WITH GODL Wink INK.







Bidding starts at 0.15 BTC (actual production cost) and increases in 0.05 BTC increments.

Auction ends exactly 7 days from the time of this post.

No sniping. Get your bids in early.

The only payment address is 18eQJRj5dMVtT1TeGr3sVesmFBruCq6f8F. If someone tells you to send to another address, it is a scam.
BE PREPARED TO SIGN A MESSAGE FROM YOUR OUTPUT ADDRESS IN CASE OF PROBLEMS.

Just like the title says. Just like my signature says. Anyone interested in being the second owner of a 1 BTC Silver Casascius coin? Don't think there's many others still with their original owners.

7  Economy / Collectibles / Brokerage for high-value Bitcoin collectibles on: March 06, 2016, 03:39:08 PM
As many of you know, I've been pretty hard into Bitcoin collectibles over the years. I'm mostly out of it these days, but I'm occasionally contacted by people who are looking for one collectible or another.

TO THIS END, I figure there's a decent chance I could act as a broker -- if you're looking for a rare item, check with me. If you're selling a rare item, check with me.

Most high-ticket items on this forum are purchased via PM, and a lot of the high rollers I've dealt with over the years rarely, if ever, post in threads anymore. Brokerage is an opportunity for private buyers to obtain items without having to reveal their identity to the world, and it's also an opportunity for newer/unknown sellers to sell their goods in a manner that the buyers can trust.

Fees negotiable, high-ticket or rare items only.

The main thread for this can be found in the Service Announcements sub here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1389466.new#new

But I figured I'd cross-post it to this sub, so you collectors are aware of it. Mods, have mercy Wink

9  Economy / Collectibles / [82/83] "What is Bitcoin?" silkscreened posters [UPDATED DESIGN FOR 2016] on: March 04, 2016, 10:11:59 PM
THE LEAD-UP:
Most of you know me from dealing with Casascius coins, but some of you may know that I also run a silkscreen printing business. I was commissioned by a client to design and print a "What is Bitcoin?" print last year, and since the last edition was such a smashing success, I've decided to revamp the design for this year and print another edition.

THE POSTER:
6-colour 14-layer silkscreen print with hand-inked details on 18x24" natural Cougar acid-free art paper. This is more than double the amount of colours used last year, and the natural off-white paper lends a classy look to the piece.
Limited edition of 83 prints.

THE TIMELINE:
The design will be finalized by March 15, at which point printing will begin. The new design will be revealed step by step as each layer is hand-printed.
Printing is expected to be completed by March 31.


Mailouts will begin as soon as shipping materials arrive.

THE PRICE:
Pricing for this print is 0.15 BTC plus shipping. Flat-shipping is estimated at 0.1 BTC and tube shipping is estimated at 0.05 BTC for North America and Western Europe.
The only payment address is 18eQJRj5dMVtT1TeGr3sVesmFBruCq6f8F. If someone tells you to send to another address, it is a scam.
BE PREPARED TO SIGN A MESSAGE FROM YOUR OUTPUT ADDRESS IN CASE OF PROBLEMS.


THE CATCH:
I've produced digitally-printed proofs of the poster design, but I'm not sharing photographs until the actual print run has commenced, because a digital proof and a real silkscreen print are so very different that one would not serve as a fair substitute for the other. I'll reveal detailed photographs of the actual silkscreened posters once the print run is complete, but PRE-ORDERS WILL BE PURCHASING THIS POSTER BLIND. If you're concerned about this, check the previous sale thread to get an idea of what to expect: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=756955.40


HOW DO WE KNOW THIS ISN'T A SCAM?
Good question! You should check my trust ratings here on the forum, as well as my OTC Web of Trust ratings.

HOW DO WE KNOW THE POSTER ISN'T GOING TO SUCK?
It's the best Bitcoin poster. You're going to love it. Not sure? Just wait for the pictures! The discounted early-bird price is a thanks for going out on a limb, but any remaining posters that haven't been claimed by the 15th at noon will be available for sale, with more pretty pictures each day so you know exactly what you're going to get.

By checking out the process photos, starting here.

THE COUNT:
As of right now, 82 posters have been sold, 1 remains. Please see resellers to obtain a copy.

Newspaper
The first-ever Bitcoin transaction had the text "The Times 03/Jan/2009 Chancellor on brink of second bailout for banks" embedded in the CoinBase.
This was a reference to a headline in that day's paper, The Times. Copies of this paper are simply not available to be purchased anymore.
Maybe a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

I need to get rid of these gross undoc'd coins. Taking offers on:

1x 2013 1.0 BTC Brass
2x 2013 0.5 BTC Brass

All in great shape, in pouches since purchase. Several brass 0.5s from this same roll have received MS67, which is the highest (so far) I've seen. All three coins are immaculate.

Pics available upon request.
17  Economy / Goods / Limited edition art books on: December 05, 2015, 04:39:13 PM
As some of you may already know, when I'm not hucking Casascius coins I run a silkscreen printing shop. We just published a new issue of our 100% hand-silkscreen printed and hand-bound art book, AWAOD.

Prior issues had been no larger than 5.5x8.5" but we decided to make a huge coffee table book this time. 13 pages of art from 14 different artists, 12x18" in size, with sewn bindings that allow the book to be disassembled into individual art prints, suitable for framing or gift-giving.

Standard edition is printed on Cougar 100lb Natural paper (100% tree pulp, acid-free, archival quality).

Deluxe edition is printed on Stonehenge 250gsm Cream paper (100% cotton rag, buffered, archival quality).

Both editions feature thicker Cougar 130lb covers to support the book and protect the prints within.

Each edition is hand-bound with 100% pure linen thread, waxed by hand with 100% natural beeswax.

100 copies available to the general public (75 standard, 25 deluxe), with the rest of the edition going to the contributors. Roughly 250 hours of work was involved in the production of these books, not including the countless hours of toil by our gracious contributors, without whom we would not have the opportunity to do what we love. Well over $300 worth of individual prints in this collection.
