Hey guys,

due to popular demand, I'm selling 1 BTC Casascius coins using a simple, fair and straightforward pricing mode:



Offer

1 Casascius Series 2 physical Bitcoin: BTC 1.60.

Recurring customers (people who have already received coins from me) get a 5% off bonus.

Limits

You can order up to 2 coins at a time.

Shipping

please note: I'm shipping from germany. To the US it can take quite long at times. I've seen anything from 3 to 20 days (1 letter even got lost). Most likely ETA seems to be something around 6 business days.

How to order

Just post how many coins you want (either here for my reputation or via PM for your privacy). I will reply with an address and once you pay, the order is confirmed. Then PM me your shipping info exactly as I should print it on the letter, including country of destination. If you fail to pay within 48 hours I am not bound to honor my offer.

More Details / Rules:

  • I will pay for tracked shipping (you will receive the tracking number on request)
  • If postal service loses the letter we will wait until I receive my insurance money (this can take up to 5 months!!). So please don't buy if you can't afford to have the money in limbo for that long.
  • If tracking service of Postal service says: "received" or "could not be delivered, needs to be picked up" or similar, it's on you: the coin is considered to be delivered at that point
  • In case of trouble/dispute I am allowed to publicize the tracking number (this does not reveal the receiving address)
  • On request, I will publicize the tracking number here in the thread
  • Upon receiving the coin(s), it would be nice if you posted that fact here.

If you have suggestions for or problems with these rules, please let me know.

Status

Here's the public google sheet I use to track stuff: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Au-mVSBh0PA4dEE5R1VMNVpNa2NWYk1pRW9xd3pXS1E&usp=sharing

Theres a FAQ in second post.

Since I get some questions frequently I thought I'd make a...

FAQ

Do you ship to country xzy?

Most likely yes. Here's the list of countries I ship to (taken from post.de site and google-translated from german to english):

Afghanistan, Egypt, Albania, Argentina, Armenia, Australia, Belarus, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, People's Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, El Salvador, Estonia, Finland, France, Ghana, Greece, Britain, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Iceland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Canada, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Colombia, Croatia, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Maldives, Malta, Morocco, Mexico, Monaco, Nepal, New Zealand, Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Austria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russian Federation, Zambia, San Marino, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Switzerland, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, South Africa, Taiwan, Thailand, Czechia, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine, Hungary, Uruguay, Uzbekistan, United Arab Emirates, United States of America, Cyprus


How long does shipping take

Weirdly enough, it doesn't really depend much on the country of destination (Italy seems extremely slow). Canada and US are about 10 business days (variance is high, though). Up to now no letter has taken longer than 23 calendar days (except the two that got lost).

What happens when a shipment gets lost

Long answer: I'm insuring every letter (in fiat currency unfortunately). This means you will get either the coin(s) or your money back at some point in time. But please be patient, I have to be sure the letter is definitely lost. I can only be sure once the postal service admits it. They contractually have 3 months (!!) measured from the point in time I trigger the investigation to either admit having lost the letter or produce proof of delivery. So in the worst case, the customer will have to wait for about 4 months. I will be really sorry about that, but won't be able to do anything about it. So please, don't use any money for this that you might need within the next 4 months.

Short answer: You will get either your coin(s) or money back, but it can potentially take a long time (up to 4 months).

The coins are brand new (un-used, contain a private key with 1BTC)?

The coins are brand new. I've not touched them without gloves and put them into plastic bags right after taking them out of the roll they have been delivered in. The coins have been loaded by Mike Caldwell (Casascius) with 1 BTC each.

What material are the coins made from?

Brass, I think. For the specifics of the coins let me refer you to the supplier site: http://casascius.com

How can you sell so cheap?

I buy bulk (>=100 pieces) from Mike (no special deal, anyone can). Mike decided to offload shipping of small orders by increasing his price to BTC 1.50 for volume <10 coins. This is what I do: take care of these small orders. In addition I do this mainly for gaining experience and getting these beautiful coins into the hands of as many people as possible, so I don't require a big profit margin... just breaking even is ok for me.

Why shouldn't I order directly from Mike Caldwell?

If you buy 10 or more coins you definitely should. My offer only makes sense for small volume.

Why can I order a maximum of 3 coins only

I plan to offer higher volume shipping in the future. But I'll first have to restock. I like the idea of shipping 1 coin to 10 people more than shipping 10 coins to 1 person.

How many coins do you have available?

Currently (as of 2013/3/18) about 25. You can order a maximum of 3 coins. If you notice the price going up it might be an indication that I'm running out. If I'm out I'll put a big note into the OP.

Well I did give one to my digital culture tutor.
I told him to buy in November and he was all "ummmmm, ahhhhh". I bought a load with my student loans in January and made a nice and tidy profit (bought at £10.70 and sold at £28.78). He gave my a fist bump....


Molecular: BTC Sent, PM'ing you address now (though I haven't moved in the last month Tongue)

payment confirmed.

For information: nethead ordered 1 coin before from the fire sale thread and now increased his order by one coin to 2 coins. So one of "his" coins is in both google sheets.

I will send tomorrow. Please keep in mind that international shipping can take a while, even for letters, even within Europe (seen 16 days to Italy once)
