Dunno if that was an overly complicated challenge, or the thread is just no longer so active.


I know I haven't been as active here. Anyway, I just saw this so give me a bit to come up with a challenge.

Okay, let's make this a simple matching game. I came across this little guy earlier:




1937 Liberia half cent

An exact match wins! Otherwise, points will be awarded accordingly:

Liberia - 2 points
1937 - 2 pts
Half Cent - 2 pts
Elephant(s) - 2 pts
Star(s) - 1 pt
Palm tree(s) - 2 pts
Any other tree(s) - 1 pt
Sun(s) - 1 pt
Ship(s) - 1 pt
Bird(s) - 1 pt

An exact match would be 14 points. Entries will receive either one or two points for all trees present, not both. Points may be received for both sun(s) and star(s) as generally depicted on this coin.

I think that about covers it. Let's see whatcha got!

So a bird does not get you a point?

Yes, a bird or any number of birds receives one point. That's why I added the "(s)" after the elements. It means it doesn't matter how many of that thing there are, they are only counted once for however many points are alotted for that element.

I hope that makes sense. For trees, any tree or number of trees gets one point, but if any of them is a palm tree, you get two points.

A depiction of the Sun gets one point, but does not get the point for the star(s) even though it is technically a star. The challenge coin itself demonstrates what the difference I'm looking for is.

We'll figure it out!

My bad. I looked three times at the points list and missed this.

At this rate, posting any coin might get the win.

Edit: jinx.

It's been about two days now. I don't think there's any need to extend this beyond the norm, so I'll give it one more day.

Here is the only Liberian coin that I own. Looks like a 3 pointer:

10 points? Easy pickens, folks. These coins were minted from 1973 to 1979 and some of the dates are quite scarce. I gobble these up.
