Finland 1918 5 penniä, KM# 21


I really miss the original matching challenges from the early days of this game, so this will be a modified version of that.

Scoring

Country:
Finland - 3 points
Shares a land boarder or unobstructed straight line across water - 2 points
European country farther away from Finland than a bordering country - 1 point

Year:
1918 - 3 points
1908-1917, 1919-1928 - 2 points
1898-1907, 1929-1938 OR any '18 year (2018,1818,1718, etc) - 1 point

Denomination:
5 cent equivalent - 2 points
Any other 5 denomination - 1 point

Composition:
Copper or bronze - 3 points
Brass or aluminum bronze - 2 points
Other non-precious metal or alloy - 1 point


Bonus: One point for matching each of these design elements. Your coin does not need to earn any points from the above criteria to qualify for these.
- trumpet
- flag
- wreath
- flower
- Finnish writing

Exact match is 16 points

You can post multiple coins, but only your highest score will count.

I should have made that one more clear. With the old matching challenges, you would get points based on how closely you matched the challenge coin in certain categories. More points for a more similar coin. "In Europe" should be "European country farther away from Finland than a bordering country." I was lazy with the wording, sorry. I'll change it.

Also, you can post multiple coins, but only your highest scoring coin will count.

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

Me too.


Something simple this time.
Let's see your coins with centre holes (that are meant to be there, not drilled coins). One point for each different coin type. Any shape hole is acceptable.
Post as many as you like. You can keep adding to your tally in new posts.

Here's one to get us started.
