Does this mean I get to post another challenge again, or do I have to declare a winner?

Well, in that case for the next challenge, post a PCGS or NGC certified (the grean bean) CAC'ed coin, any grade or denomination, the larger the denomination, the better chance of winning the round...

Here is my only one, 1916-D Merc dime, AG-3

This is the problem, with your rounds @mrwhatisit.
What is the best chance of winning, compared to the least chance of winning?

I do know some of you have CACed coins out there; wether or not they play this game is unknown, so thought I would ask...

Perhaps I am trying out various different angles to this game, pushing out in unusual directions... So anybody can post if they have a CACed United States coin...

All I'm saying, is that we have no idea of how you will decide the winner. It's more like "Post Your" and you will decide.
No rules no target

Well, I will pass the buck off to Keith12 and declare him the winner since he posted a CACed coin, which is a really nice one...

Ok, here's my crazy idea:

This a Russian 5 Kopecks

Year - 1773
Value - 5
Weight - 51.2g
Size - 42mm

Only using these 4 numbers of your coin 1 time
Via: addition, subtraction, multiplication or division (use these how you like)

Hit this target number 2161.49

1773 x 51.2 + 5 42 = 2161.49
As always, an exact match wins.
Please show your math
I hope that makes sence

Is this just your opinion or a conclusion ?
It was my opinion since no points table was presented by the host, so I assumed all three elements were equal. Keith had 2/3, you had 1/3.

My comments are only ever a conclusion if the host does not choose a winner. The host re-hosted, that round has since ended, so it is now moot.

Your math is incorrect as you did not follow the order of operations...

(1773 x 51.2) + (5 42) = 90,777.72

You should have presented it like this:

(1773 x 51.2 + 5) 42 = 2161.49

So, as long as we are allowed to group operations with parenthesis, the round should still hold.

1976-S 40% Silver Eisenhower dollar Proof



Year - 1976
Value - 1
Weight - 24.6g
Size - 38.1 mm

If I can use an operator more than one time ...
1976 + 38.1 + 24.6 + 1 = 2039.7

If not...
1976 x 38.1 / 24.6 + 1 = 3061.39
