Coin premiums

Coins | CoinLady

My favorite bookstore is relocating in the next month or so. I dropped in the other day and had a nice chat with the owner. He plans opening day festivities,  including appearances by local authors. He asked yours truly to take part. Of course I agreed!
When authors have booksignings, panels, or other events with readers, premiums or giveaways are often part of it. I had a booksigning when "Concord" was released. I gave away 2009 cents with the Capitol reverse. My heroine travels to DC in 1862, and this is how the building would have looked.
My novel "Run to You" featured a hockey player hero. I had a raffle for a 1993 Canadian Stanley Cup silver dollar.
The 1873-S Seated dollar is the star of my novel "Wild World." I'm looking for a copy of this coin to give away at my next event. I see ads for copies of famous rarities, but I'm still looking for this one. Hope to find one by the time the bookstore opens!
