Numisma Gothic Florin is a Florin = 0 points, you can't post an identical coin to mine. Not all Florins are Gothic, but all Gothic Florins are Florins (Of course a Gothic crown would be a points scorer).

Jbuck - 4 points, the size of the 50 cent coin is 30.5mm which is over 30mm

I should make it clear 28.0mm to 30.0mm not 30.9mm.

If it's round, shiny and silvery I will love it.

I have two sources that say otherwise... It is 30mm... Not 30.5...

What I see in the rules is that they're not prohibited, but just don't get the extra point for being British:

Arkie - Great coin - 19 Points

Dorado - It is common knowledge here that a entrants coin should not be the same or very similar to the exemplar's coin.

I have got time for debating and interpreting legalese, I am not some slimy New York Lawyer looking for loopholes.

0 points for the coin and disqualification from the round for being cheeky and questioning my rule.

J Buck - very half dollar I see is at least 30.5mm including the modern ones - so how could it be a 180 year old one is smaller yet weighs 13.36 grams when my 1977 proof one weighs 10.98 grams?

4 points or nothing - your choice.

Princetane, here are two heavily worn 19th century half dollars. The upper one is a seated liberty, the lower a bust half. I think it is clear that the diameter of the two coins is different. FWIW, the O mintmark on the seated liberty proves it was minted before the US Civil War.

That is completely untrue. In fact, the very first challenge was for an exact match.

In Memory of Tootallious 3-31-1964 to 4-15-2020

Oh that I was where I would be,
Then I would be where I am not,
Here I am where I must be,
Go where I would, I can not.

Why can't you guys just play the game instead of being questioning queenies.

I am the manager, my rules, don't like them - don't play.

Well, first of all, 90% silver is denser than Cu-Ni clad.

Time to get educated...

The US half dollar was originally struck out of collar, so the diameter varied (32-33mm).

The first collared half dollar, the one I presented here, was 30mm.

The Seated half dollar which replaced this design and started in 1839 was the first to be 30.6mm (not 30.5mm). This is the size used for every US half dollar minted since.

So, the problem here is you are comparing a modern apple to a classic orange.

I am not going to quibble over a single point, it is your round; however, the record will reflect that I was correct.

Hey, I'm not trying to cause trouble. Your rules never specified that an exact match wasn't allowed, and as others have pointed out, it doesn't go without saying. I'll retract my entry if you don't like it, but I maintain that I acted within the rules and spirit of the game.

I take it this comment was meant for me rather than Dorado.

I think the problem is that the game has evolved a bit since it began and newer players are rightly focused on recent precedents. With that being said, future hosts should be explicit as to what will and will not count. Nothing should be left to assumption.
