spruett--4 points
CollectionMaster--4 points (not copper)

Because I'm just this way, I wanted to point out that bd251's coin does not have two different calendar dates. It is the same calendar date (1955) written in two different languages.

Congrats pepactonius!

I think CollectionMaster's coin should get credit for two languages. That would give the coin 5 points. Any discussion?
If I can count Latin on mine, then so can we all.

Victoria large cents 1865-1896 for Newfoundland

composition - .950 copper, .040 tin, .010 zinc

I do not want to take over any position, just posting this so any one reading can see that they are copper.

I guess we need to wait to see if the 95% copper coins qualify as copper, before proceding. If so, the first of the 5-point coins should win the round. I was not trying to win this round (so soon after the prior win) -- If so, I would have posted an 1890 German East African 1 pesa coin:


I guess I shoud await the final decision of the CCF staff?

In my opinion, 95% counts. Maybe even 90%, but nothing less (no cupro-nickel).

New Challenge:
---------------------

Post your coin/slab with the lowest NGC or PCGS cert number.

1) For NGC, the cert number is before the dash

2) For PCGS, the cert number is usually after the slash (except on Regency slabs, which don't have the usual slash)

3) Coin/slab is awarded points equal to the cert number -- see (1) and (2).

4) Note: low cert numbers don't mean the slab is old, especially for PCGS. Some sample slabs have number 00000000, and will receive 0 points.

5) Posts without a valid/complete/readible cert number will receive 99999999 points, but may win if there are no valid posts for this round.

6) The slab must still contain the coin.

7) Photos must show at least the side of the slab with cert number. Optionally, closeups of the coin itself can be included.

8) The post with the fewest points wins. If one user submits multiple entries, the one with the fewest points is used.

9) In case of a points tie, the earliest post involved in the tie wins.

Challenge slab:





This slab would get 121929 points.


This round ends at 20:00, 2019/06/16 (Sunday)
