August 5th, 2015: LEALANA-CASASCIUS HYBRID BRASS BITCOIN AUCTION




*****Carefully read this auction post in its entirety before bidding*****

Auction ends August 17th, 2015 at 3:00 PM Hawaiian Standard Time

Minimum bid will start at 0.01BTC. Bidding will be done in 0.01BTC increments. Shipping will be $30 for US and $50 for International bidders. This will be added to the winning bid after the auction.(ID will be required upon delivery for pickup) for both domestic U.S. and international customers. Bitcoin is the only accepted form of payment for this auction. Coins for this auction will ship out by August 20th, 2015.

You are bidding for the following unfunded/buyer funded coins:


ONE Brass LEALANA-CASASCIUS HYBRID 5 BTC BRASS coin (GOLD HOLOGRAM) #100 <<<<< -------------- ONLY ONE IN EXISTENCE TO BE MADE



*** There will only be one of these to be assembled/sold.

One other note is that the hologram is off centered on purpose given the difference in the layout of LEALANA coin metal recess under the holograms when compared to CASASCIUS metal recess placement.


By bidding on this auction you are agreeing to the terms listed at: http://lealana.com/tac.php

For this auction THIS COIN MUST BE PREFUNDED with 5 BTC. If you cannot pre fund all of the coins before they ship (which you can take your time on the funding if you wish), please do not bid on this auction.

THESE COINS ARE BUYER FUNDED. The winner by bidding on this auction will accept the risks involved with shipping funded coins through USPS registered mail. The coins will be valued at the price paid plus the bitcoin that is loaded on to them. Winner agrees to hold LEALANA, LLC. and myself innocent of any losses while in transit (in the small event the coin goes missing/stolen while in transit).

Any customs/VAT taxes or fees that are placed on the package while going through customs for international customers are the responsibility of the buyer/winner to pay.


Please bid in the following format (no extra precision decimals):


CORRECT FORMAT
"I bid 1.07 BTC"


INCORRECT FORMAT
"I bid 1.074839282"


Should bids come in at the last minute I will allow for the auction to extended by 15 minute increments between bids. Once the 15 minutes is up and no bidding is done after the deadline specified ABOVE, the auction will end. To be clear on the precision of the auction times in 15 minute increments we are talking about the actual MINUTE and not the seconds that are posted on the forum timestamp.

Payment address:

1LKSmbVEf7k9nD8kxugLVaShyP47rFk5QG

Please do not send payment to any winner address until the winner has been declared which I will post once the auction ends. If you would like a non-public payment address PM me and I will create a PGP signed address for you to send payment to.

Payment is due within 72 hours from the time the auction ends. Should the winner not honor their bid and not provide payment in that 72 period the next highest bidder will be required to honor their bid. By bidding in this auction thread you agree to this stipulation. In other words, please make sure you are able to honor your bid(s) in a timely manner before you bid.

I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO INVALIDATE A BID FROM NEWBIE USERS. USUALLY THIS WILL BE THE CASE IF I HAVE NEVER DONE BUSINESS WITH YOU BEFORE.

AUCTION WINNER INFORMATION SUBMISSION:

*If you win, please send me (IN ONE PRIVATE MESSAGE) immediately ALL of the following information as it is needed to ship you your coins correctly/promptly:

1. The # of coins you want to prefund. Which types and how many.

2. FULL Shipping information:

FIRST AND LAST NAME
STREET ADDRESS & BUILDING/SUITE #
CITY
STATE
COUNTRY
POSTAL CODE

3. If you are outside of the US and want to insure prefunded coins please send me PM for details.

It is nice. But why logo is not centered correctly? Looks a bit unprofessional.
Anyway, I like it, just the logo can be better centered.

Cheers!

He explains this in his first hybrid auction: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1117919.0

"One other note is that the hologram is off centered on purpose given the difference in the layout of LEALANA coin metal recess under the holograms when compared to CASASCIUS metal recess placement."
 
I think this might be why the window on the hologram looks a bit funky on this 5BTC coin.

Could I retract my bid? Since nobody has really bid on this.

I didn't notice I would have to fund 5 BTC.

I bid .02BTC.

A raw 5BTC cas coin should be worth well more then that.

Do you think I am spamming? If so, you're probably wrong.

I could recenter the hologram but it won't be #100.

If the winner wants me to rehologram the coin to make it more center I have no problem doing that.

Just know that it won't be perfectly centered given the difference in the way Casascius coins are minted (placement of the recess under the hologram).

I'm a bit confused on why you are insisting on having it prefunded with 5BTC?

I would assume:
1) face value of the coin is 5BTC so it makes sense
2) the holo is already applied and can't be re-marked as "BUYER FUNDED", so it would have to be funded to full amount to be able to match both criteria.

I could be horribly wrong tho... Wink

smoothie hand engraves laser etches them after the sticker is applied, so I don't think #2 is right.

The coin has a face value of 5 BTC and has an intact hologram on the back.  If not funded, what's stopping the winner from representing it as funded, and selling it to an ignorant buyer?

I get that it's the face value, but I figured that you could have just left it up to the buyer to decide to fund it.

And I would hope there are no ignorant buyers buying coins of such a high face value.

If there is an ignorant buyer and he gets scammed then smoothie's reputation would get harmed even though he had nothing to do with it. Forcing the coins to be funded prevents this from happening.

If the laser etching is done after than it would be possible to laser buyer funded.  Being this isnt the case with this coin im sure its by design.  Maybe there will only be 1 funded and he will make multiple buyer funded ones later maybe not.  Could be a multitude of reasons that maybe smoothie can share on this thread so possible buyers will understand more clearly.

But smoothie does sell other unfunded coins so why not this one?

I'd like to know his formula for buyer funded versus not, as well.  I have bought many coins from smoothie both buyer funded and not and I'm not sure what it is.  I have noticed that he insists that his more specialty items are funded.  Before he offered the "roll of dimes" I had asked him to put one together for me and I think he insisted I pre-fund them.  I've bought tubes of brass from him and if I don't care what I get, he doesn't seem to care if it's funded or not.  It's hard to tell.

I always thought the buyer funded clause was based on a USD threshold being mailed through USPS. I could've misinterpreted that from a long time ago last time this came up, more than likely it's just a personal stipulation of smoothie's.

I bid 0.03 BTC.

Either you own the bitcoins(private keys) or you don't. However with moneroj, nobody knows what you own.
Secure. Private. Untraceable.
