I have no doubt this will overtake HFBCWG.

I don't have any ideas (need to figure out a fresh overall approach to this). So with pepactonius, jbuck and Spence on board, I would like to see what your challenge is, january1may!
Unfortunately, there are several problems with my challenge...

1) it doesn't follow jbuck's "count the similarities" rule
2) since I was fairly certain that I wouldn't win, I forgot to prepare for it - i.e. I will still need to take some photos of the intended host coin
3) as mentioned, I very much doubt it would be quite as good as you seem to believe
and 4) Arkie is ahead of me in line, anyway.

If it turns out that Arkie doesn't want to do it either, I'm willing to attempt it, but if I don't manage to write it up in another day or two (which isn't that unlikely), it's going to be either a free-for-all, or jbuck will have to come up with something.

Again, not a rule, a suggestion.

I will give someone, anyone, until after the GTP 3PM deadline passes to do something or I will post my challenge.

None of my contingency challenges follow that rule/suggestion, either. They all involve posting the largest/smallest, oldest/newest, most/least, highest/lowest, strangest, oddest, etc. coin.

Again, just a suggestion to address complaints. No need to make this a rule when it is not. Whatever you want the challenge to be, just do it.

I have not come up with a challenge yet. Feel free to jump in. If not, maybe I will have one tomorrow.

Okay, since j1m is skeered , I will post a coin I really like and you guys can attempt to match the most characteristics with ONE entry.




Here are the aspects that count for points:

Bimetallic = 1 point
Denomination of 2 = 1 point
Bears multiple languages = 1 point
Bears multiple stars = 1 point
Bears a hemispherical view of the Earth = 1 point
Coins dated in the 21st Century = 1 point
Bears any reference to bees, their hives, combs or honey = 3 points

How about that? One entry per person and any ties go to the first poster. Let's give this till Saturday night, unless someone posts an exact match. That would be an automatic victory!

I know it doesn't count for anything but it is a 2 headed coin.
