I'll start the bidding at 1BTC

Thank you for your bid.

Hi all.  I decided to drop by.

Some info from the Encyclopedia.  These were special made by Casascius and I can confirm only 8 exist.

Its nice to see this mentioned again. 

I don't come to the boards often anymore, but do lurk around every now and then.  Yeah, as mentioned, it was a huge effort contacting the people, not to mention I contacted many others, since I made an effort to contact just about every coin maker known up to that time (except for Mike Caldwell on purpose).  Plus the time and effort with mailing and handling the items themselves.  I wont be doing it again for sure and am not aware of anyone else taking it over.

Thank you all for the kind words.

I saw this product mentioned a long time ago but dont know if any were put up for sale.  I've personally never saw one listed on our forum.
5  Economy / Collectibles / Re: Infinitum Coins - is this "company" a scam? on: April 12, 2018, 01:49:08 AM
I have a name, address and phone to the owner of Infinitum, based in Dubai.  I wrote them to get his signature for the encyclopedia, but after a lot of emails back and forth, they never signed them.  If the community feels like its ok for me to disclose it to a trusted person, I can send it. 

I dont wish to Dox them publicly, but I'm happy to help if its ok to do so.

Interesting list thanks. Not a replacement for the Encyclopedia of Physical Bitcoins and Crypto-Currencies though.

This list predates the Encyclopedia of Physical Bitcoins and Crypto-Currencies if I'm not mistaken.

Thats correct.    Elias started doing a Casascius-only online version, then I believe started considering doing a comprehensive physical book in April '15.  I believe I joined the project a year later.   But it still took a while until the Encyclopedia was published.

This list is also what got me started in collecting physical bitcoins.   I owe my thanks to the OP.

How much do the originals go for? By original, I mean the edition that was signed by everyone.
. The softcover also came in a Signature Edition with 4 signatures.

You can contact minerjones or Elianite.  Iím not sure if there are cheaper options to your country other than Amazon
9  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [WTS] Weekend Sale Bitcoin Coldcoin Spy coins on: January 27, 2018, 02:06:50 AM
Agreed, they are impressive and actually work when fitting together/opening with the tool which I didn't expect. 

They were sold on ebay and I believe through a website that was built for the coins.

I believe the website was coldco.in if I recall.  These are pretty rare.
10  Bitcoin / Meetups / Re: Looking for 3 tickets for BTCmiami on: January 17, 2018, 11:18:53 PM
I'm going to it, and have been to the last 4 in Miami.  Its normally a good conference.  This year is too focused on ICOs, with half the content on people making their ICO sales pitches.  I paid $500 for 1 ticket, which I think is steep, since its much higher than previous years.

I looked at the btcmiami.com website, and they are price gouging now at $2500 per ticket!!  What a ripoff.
11  Bitcoin / Meetups / Re: Anyone attending the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami next week? on: January 17, 2018, 11:13:40 PM
I'm going to it, and have been to the last several in Miami every year.  I would say its normally worth it, but this year half the conferences are ICO pitches, so I'm frustrated by the repetitive ICO content.  Previously the price was much less.  Now its $500, which I feel is steep.

Hey smoothie,

Welcome back  Smiley

Are you suggesting that I remove the note about only the Paperback Collectors Signature Edition having Mike's signature?  Or is that a special version that you have there.  My understanding is that the hardcover autograph editions did not have Mike's signature (which was done as a way to reward early supporters of the paperback).  

The hardcovers nor the loose label sets had Mikeís signature that I provided.  Youíre correct.  I didnít want to cannabalize the softcover Signature Edition.  I wanted to keep that one special by having Mikeís signature only there.

Iím guessing smoothie asked Mike to sign his book.

Thank you hybridsole.  Nice job.
14  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [Auction] Encyclopedia of Physical Bitcoins Etc.. (Makers Edition) on: January 14, 2018, 06:26:24 PM
With regard to any autographs or holos not included but listed on the COA, there were a couple makers who didnít supply signatures at all, such as Ravenbit and bhcoins, but I included their holos.  I only had 20 of bhcoins, so only the Auto Ed. got those.  

I think the non Auto Edition got something different  instead to make it fair, such as Genesis holo, if I recall.

For a couple of the low number loose non AE sets, I added Matthew Rippon, the co-author, as I only had a few of his.

So both the AE and non-AE autographs sets were nearly identical.

For the books, the premium paper can be identified when there is a wording in the top right corner, saying Premium Color Edition.  This pic doesnít show that.

Refer to my sig below for more details on the label sets.
15  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] Encyclopedia of Bitcoins with COA #2 of 50 (lowest available!!!!) on: January 09, 2018, 02:36:21 AM
Does anyone know who had #1 Mike Caldwell Signature book, and the #1 Autograph Edition Books?

Elianite would know for sure, but my guess would be monkeynuts.
16  Economy / Collectibles / Re: [AUCTION] Encyclopedia of Bitcoins with COA #2 of 50 (lowest available!!!!) on: January 07, 2018, 03:09:34 PM
This is a #2, he said the lowest available to the public.....I wonder who got #1 Huh Still a NUMBER 2 in ANY collectable is way more respectable than a #3 and up, any way you slice it.

monkeynuts purchased the #1.  I sold it privately.  

I'm happy to see these reselling well.  For anyone looking for more info about these, see my sig below.  They have been sold out.

Its a less expensive way to closely replicate the Hardcover Autograph Edition (AE) where I was told by elianite that 4 books sold for $5000 each (or equivalent value) several months ago when the price of BTC was much less.  While those AE books are stamped and strictly limited edition, they came with the same set of autographs and holograms, as well as COA.   The AE were given COA's #31-50.



Is that the version I have and tried to sell a few months back?

If I recall, you have a limited numbered & stamped "Maker's Edition" where I believe 35 were allocated & offered for sale to all the coin makers who signed but only 25 or so were sold.  Labels were added to your book.  I dont know for sure the Autograph COA for yours, but possibly #21.

mj is offering in this auction a regular un-numbered non-limited edition book with the labels added.  The Autograph COA is #2.

For reference, there were also another 25 limited numbered & stamped  "Autograph Editions" made.  One book was lost in the mail.  All of these have the label sets added, and were given COA's #31-50.    

So the difference in this auction and yours, blazed, is in the limited book edition, as well as the Autograph COA number.    But otherwise, they are similar.

18  Economy / Collectibles / Re: (Auction) Recalescence Coins 1000mBTC Silver Sparrow, loaded on: December 13, 2017, 10:59:11 PM
These coins came as either funded by the maker or later on as DIY in which case a holo was not supplied and it was up to the buyer to furnish their own holo.  The coins came in either a silver version or more rare gilt version.

Either variety is quite rare these days.

Thank you for the information.

Is there any way to verify these are loaded?

I am certainly not going to take the OP's word and certainly not going to trust some one-off coin maker from a couple years ago.

Unless the balance can be verified, I would consider this coin unloaded with no digital value......

EDIT:
I see the COA has a QR code on it... Can this be scanned to reveal the public address or show balance?

Iíll check my Recalescense COA.  The holo and number on the COA should match the number on the coin at minimum, to be of any use.  But obviously, OP needs to provide proof of the coin and COA, just for starters.

Is the chart shown above still accurate for the Gold?  Only two of the 10 coins have been peeled?  I still have mine.
