I apologize to jbuck if I wasn't actually allowed to let the first entry count if it was superseded by a new entry that turned out to be worse; by the wording of the new contest restrictions, it sounds like I probably wasn't, but I'm not sure if this interpretation was intended...
For the record, I do not think we should penalize anyone for posting a second entry that ended up being "worse" than their first if it was an honest mistake, whether a misunderstanding of the parameters, a calculation error, etc.

With rounds like these that require calculations, mistakes will be made and that is okay. In these cases, I believe it is best to defer to the round host since we all should agree that they know best what matches their requirements!

Sounds like you need to build an Ike set then.

Fun fact, the Ike in my 7070 is also a 1974. A 1974-D to be precise.

Nope!

Remember the new rule. We are no longer doing the "post all your things that match this for the most points" thing.

Unless you meant because it is Cu-Ni, which if I understand the rules does not count as copper or bronze.

Yes! I know the challenge coin is a bit on the older side for this game, so I tried to make the scoring inclusive for newer coins as well.

Nice use of the '74 point


Here are the standings with about a day left:

6 - triggersmob
5 - spruett001
5 - Wandering Circle
4 - Princetane - do you have a source for that coin being 32mm? Numista says 30mm and NGC says 30.2mm
3 - jbuck

A couple notes
- Copper nickel won't get you any points
- If you use the Google maps distance function, or other software that can trace on the globe, you'd be surprised which of your favorite countries are a straight line over water from Brazil
- Remember that you can post a second, higher scoring coin to replace your lower score.

It looks like triggersmob is the winner!

I was really hoping to see some coins from New Zealand, Australia, or Russia

Yeah, I found this perfectly straight line to Australia, but it is past noon forum time.



I thought that the 20c would be big enough to get a point but it is under 3cm.

Thanks Bd251.
I probably won't be able to get another round organised until the weekend,
so if anyone else wants to start the next challenge, please feel free.
