Here is what appears to be the results:

Roll 1 - k99 - 40.1
Roll 2 - paulgruber - 36
Any - Melbustus - 40
Any - Melbustus - 40 (2nd roll)
Any - 1John8Lare - 35.9
Any - k99 - 35.8
Any - paulgruber - 35.7
Any - otoh - 35.5

Anyone see any issues before I go and PM requesting payment?

Companies claiming they got hacked and lost your coins sounds like fraud so perfect it could be called fashionable.  I never believe them.  If I ever experience the misfortune of a real intrusion, I declare I have been honest about the way I have managed the keys in Casascius Coins.  I maintain no ability to recover or reproduce the keys, not even under limitless duress or total intrusion.  Remember that trusting strangers with your coins without any recourse is, as a matter of principle, not a best practice.  Don't keep coins online. Use paper or hardware wallets instead.

@Bogart - which country are you in? I assume the US as you didn't say.

@Casascius - can I just use the previous address that you gave me for paying these & keep it as a permanent payment address, that saves having to sign a new one each time, also is it possible to defer shipping until I buy some other coins from you & combine shipping at the $50 in order to make more than just a single roll being sent for that price. A great assessment of the present situation on your blog, calm & balanced, many thanks.

Now that we have discovered a price of around 50-60% above face value, is that what non-winning people here expected? What do you think of the 'value' now?

I would be inclined to think, they will easily resell for BTC1 per piece, so this secures a fair profit for all participants.

The probability that these will fetch BTC5 per piece in optimal selling circumstances some time in the future is high, imho.

The crash in USD/BTC naturally cuts the 'profit per transaction' for the middlemen.

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

I have prepared the following Bitcoin addresses to accept payment for the rolls.

I will use $200/BTC to calculate the shipping (which favors the buyer greatly, as compared to the
currently displayed exchange rate, which I think is bogus).  So, if shipping to the US, please add
0.175 BTC for shipping.  If shipping outside the US, please add 0.25 BTC for shipping.

Roll #1,6: 126458fQpss7h1QPCP5e8v658NTNU4B5T3 - k99 - 40.1+35.8+shipping

Roll #2,7: 12r6Njk3BgBKdG2UJbte8A23VSDuVjhzZF - paulgruber - 36+35.7+shipping

Roll #3,4: 12vzGoyXn2mGo1nGBeborGD2eobHYBUc6q - Melbustus - 40+40+shipping

Roll #5: 136noaQzVdo76yL12rdZHjmyRs5Q9n3PQB - 1John8Lare - 35.9+shipping

Roll #8: 136Qw6rYi2LaWZ37oN8vQU4ea2eM2SRMCc - otoh - 35.5+shipping

Please PM me your shipping address and I will have these out right away.

Please let me know if I've made any mistakes with the above (other than the bitcoin addresses -
they're sweet two-factor paper wallets I just printed and I guarantee they're mine and secure)

No hurry.

I'll throw in my obligatory plug for paper wallets.  Blockchain having issues doesn't affect me, because I don't keep coins there, nor on any web wallet.  I have never heard of anyone losing their coins on a paper wallet.  So low tech, so high security.  Blockchain can scan QR addresses and private keys via your webcam and they make it super easy to get funds in and out of paper.  I import, transact, and then withdraw my full remaining balance to paper wallets every time I am done using my web wallet.
