So,
I have made a ton of money on eBay selling Casascius blanks as loadable coins. To people on eBay, its practically the same thing as a Casascius coin with the original hologram. A while back I bought a roll of 5 BTC blanks when Casascius was selling them. I bought some holograms and either prepped the bitcoin to load or sent instructions and materials to the customer so they could do it (its quite simple). NONE of them at auction sold for less than $127, and a couple sold for more than $150. If you need money fast-list these "Buy It Now" at a reasonable price and I'm quite positive you will sell them all the same day. I did. AND that was a 5 BTC blank, not a 2011 Spelling Error one!

The mistake I made (otherwise I would be selling them myself right now) was to include a SMALL bitcoin balance (I'm talking .1 or .05) . PayPal saw how successful those listings were (they went for $127+/ea) and "limited" my account. It has been that way for about two weeks now. I have called PayPal twice, sent TONS of emails and still nothing. Its true-PayPal sucks.

So, if you sell this as merely a loadable coin and DO NOT include any bitcoins in the sale, you are safe from f*** PayPal.

Considering what the 5 BTC blanks made loadable sold for, I believe this would sell for $150+ EASY.

If you are interested, make an offer on here. If I see one I like, I'll take the person up on it. But this is not an auction, I will not definitely sell the blank.

Also included would be plenty of holograms and instructions to include to send to the customer.

Anyone interested?





(pictures are of the one I made for myself, yours comes with a bare (no hologram) back. I'll include a case, too)

I have no idea what these are objectively worth, but I know I want one.  I don't even care what kind, I just want a Casascius coin (blank) for the novelty.  I'll have to talk to you about this.  I see that your problem was the bitcoin balance - if you clearly sold them with no bitcoins on them at all, then I guess you'd be OK.

Actually, that could be worth doing.

Care to start off with a minimum offer?  At this stage this seems like it's meant to be a bidding war where you retain the right to take or leave the best offer at the end.  If you'd more or less like to sell it, then a base offer might encourage folks to outbid each offer - or to decide that they just can't afford it / don't want it at a price you're willing to accept.

If I've been able to help out, donations are always welcome.

I am interested but I don't quite understand your procedure on how to sell these.  Can you post a link to your eBay feedback?

Never mind, I found it.  You need to edit your OP to be more truthful.

I have sold these coins for less than the amounts I described, but only with the"Buy It Now" function. I'm a poor college student and at certain times I needed cash. It killed me to sell them for so cheap, but I had to.
Still, every coin listed as an auction sold at over $150, except for one I missed that went for $127.xx
I'm not trying to be malicious or anything here. I'll change the title, I'll just say $100+..because that is true for me.

Oh, also I realize some of those auctions included .05 Bitcoins to be loaded by customers. But literally the greatest bitcoin value any of them had was .05. A number of coins I had (NO bitcoins included) sold for at least $127.xx
