April 13, 2013: Auction for 10 rolls of fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins.

See my blog, http://casascius.wordpress.com

Minimum bid: face value (50 * 1BTC = 50 BTC per roll).  Please bid in 0.1 BTC increments.
Shipping cost is a flat $35 for US Registered Mail, $50 for international Registered Mail,
regardless of the number of rolls won.

Unless otherwise specified, you are bidding for ONE of the eight rolls.  You can bid in any of
the following ways:

1. "I bid 51 BTC for any available roll".  If your bid wins, you'll win one roll.  You will not get
to choose which roll you get.

2. "I bid 51 BTC for roll 13B-A."  You will either win roll 13B-A for 51 BTC, or you won't.

If you post more than once with a bid that exceeds your prior bid, I will probably deem your
new bid as a replacement of your old bid.  Please be clear, preferably repeat all of your active
bids with each subsequent bidding post.

Unlike my last auction, the price you are bidding is your MAXIMUM bid.  The price the highest
bidder will actually pay is the second highest bid plus the minimum bid increment (0.1 BTC), plus
shipping.  All other bidders will pay their actual bid plus shipping.

The end time of this auction is April 14, 22:00 UTC forum time (approx. 24 hours from
now),  but any valid bid will extend the auction to 2 minutes past the timestamp of the post
containing the bid.

Roll 13B-A: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13B
Roll 13B-B: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13B
Roll 13B-C: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13B
Roll 13B-D: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13B
Roll 13B-E: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13B*
Roll 13C-A: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13C
Roll 13C-B: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13C
Roll 13C-C: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13C
Roll 13C-D: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13C
Roll 13C-E: Fifty 1 BTC Casascius Coins made April 13, 2013, with address prefix 13C*

Note that A,B,C,D,E are not sequential: all of them are essentially random selections from the
200-300 coins that were made from each lot (max 300, actual production varies based on
mistakes, discards, etc.)  Of all these coins, they are essentially identical, other than that the
13B's were made just before the 13C's were made.

Of rolls marked with *, I may use some coins from other lots in the event that the lot runs out
before I can get the full 50 coins from it.

I reserve the right to cancel the auction if necessary for reasonable cause, as an escape
hatch just in case I've missed something critical.

Secure payment addresses (if you win more than 1 roll, OK to combine into single address)
(Please wait until winners are ranked before paying an address.  Please contact me if you
would like a different, non-published address, PGP signed of course).

Just an interesting discussion topic:  I was thinking, not for this auction, but for a future auction, including a potentially valuable giveaway available only to those who have ordered 100 or more coins from me before I shut down my order taking, or those who are visibly and actively reselling coins.

The giveaway would be: One uncut original sheet of 330 private keys from the series 1 set, which I will not be using due to the holograms having the spelling error, and are otherwise garbage.  The holograms would not be included.  I have maybe 10 such sheets, and giving them away would be no security concern because the keys will never be used in coins.  They are the only copy of the keys they contain.  This would be offered to deliberately prejudice the bidding toward those reselling the coins.  Others could bid but wouldn't be eligible to get the bonus item.  The sheets aren't something I'd sell separately (I consider it cheesy to sell "self-memorabilia"), but might make for a prized giveaway to honor and reward those who are making local markets for these.

I'm interested in feedback on the idea to help me decide whether to offer that.

I would like to extend this auction so its ending time is 22:20 instead of 22:00.  The other auction shall remain at 22:00 (UTC).  This way, I don't have two different threads ending at exactly the same time, which might be a logistical problem for those trying to bid on them both.  Any objections?  I realize that the earlier auction might end up getting extended due to bidding activity, but at least there won't be a mad rush targeting the single moment of 21:59:59.
