No, you're definitely not too late! And I can't tell if you're way off, because I can't figure out which of your dates corresponds to which coin. Sorry. (Please repost your guess in another reply; sadly I was too busy to answer earlier, so you unfortunately won't be able to edit your existing reply.)

As for the 1 year - check the dates carefully

Incidentally, just for clarification: yes, you (any of you) can post another guess if it's been a while since your previous one. However, I'm not sure how much "a while" should be exactly (but you're probably safe if I've already commented on your previous guess and it's been at least a few days).
Yes, that means that all of the existing participants can revise their guesses (which were all made over a month ago - except for the last one, obviously, but I can't figure it out, so it also doesn't count).

The others as per Joseph!
(although the 10 Lepta is more likely 1894 or 95)
Though I can't work out what the top left coin is.

Let me give this an uneducated guess.

bottom row, middle coin: 2005.
middle middle coin: 1882
top right coin: 1938
bottom left: 1797

The other two are too vague for me to identify.

It said in the rules to guess the dates of the three big copper coins. So the one I listed as top was the one on the top (top left if you count the other coin that wasn't a big copper). And the ones listed as left and right were the big coppers on the bottom, on the left and the right. Most everyone else was following the rules and only guessing the three copper coins.

top(top left) 1775
left(bottom left) 1792
right(bottom right) 1938

That's what I thought you meant, but the 1938 date surprised me (like, it's not even in the correct century for the bottom right coin).

It was obviously a complete stab in the dark at a coin that looks like a blank planchet. No need to be condescending to someone else who's here to learn.

Sorry. I agree, "looks like a blank planchet" is a good description for that particular coin (though the other side is a little better, and even this one in better lighting would probably have been enough for identification).

It's just that the specific date 1938 was what everyone else suggested for the upper right coin (which is not included in the three big coppers).

So is there a winner? Or can we guess more than once? Just curious about the end result lol.
