Same, off hand I think I knew 2, but it was fun to research and definitely cool figuring out you can find so much out about a date other than those 4 numbers. Could possibly help if I find a worn date coin you never know!

Thanks for the info on PM, Zurie. PM = email at CCF. I was able to send you a message when I looked at the tabs where Errers and Varietys instructed me on how to edit a post. Even though I blindly sent you a message, I know that you or the others can direct me if you didn't get my guessed answers. LOL. come on coiniacs, you are not making an assessments of the coins, your skills are not tested, you are guessing the dates. This contest is about guessing skills. LOL. NOW YOU KNOW, NOW YOU DON'T kind of thing. Just guess. Join the fun.

No no guessing first you need to know what coin you are looking at then if it has an error or variety then you find out what date that exact variety is. I used PCGS website for every answer I didn't know. No guessing

Mrzllewellyn, hmmmm it seems like you are the one & only contestant who got all the production years of the coins right. You used high tech resource ( PCGS) , I used traditional (books- the Red Book) was the book that helped me the most). You used certainty, I incorporated guessing. It would be nice to know what the other contestants used.

Hi, Mrzllewellyn. No offense intended. Just thankful that Zurie is giving a contest for everyone who joins to enjoy. Well, the result will be out after last day of submission (Tuesday). At least, the others will have ideas to use PCGS and/or Red Book, plus whatever resources they want to use. So, have fun everyone.

The contest is officially over, and here are the winners!

Congratulations to Mrzllewellyn for a perfect score, impressively submitted less than two hours after the contest started.

Spruett001 takes second place with 14 out of 15 correct.

SilverDollar2017 and nss-52 tied for third place with 13 correct, and SilverDollar2017 graciously offered to pass his prize on to the next in line, so nss-52 will receive the third prize.

It looks like the toughest date to identify was the 1891-CC Morgan spitting eagle, and the next hardest were the 1878-S Morgan long nock and the 1814 Bust half E/A.

But given how well everyone did who entered, I have decided to give an honorable mention prize to the non-winning players, including BStrauss3, Mister Kairu, sosicoin, and YNumismetals Collector. If any of you want to receive a proof pre-1960 silver Roosevelt dime, just PM me with your address and I will put it in the mail.

Here are the answers to the contest:

1. 1937-D Buffalo nickel, 3-legged
2. 1859 Indian Head cent
3. 1946 Walking Liberty half dollar, DDR
4. 1794 Liberty Cap large cent, no fraction bar
5. 1935 Connecticut commemorative half dollar
6. 1853 Seated Liberty quarter, arrows and rays
7. 2000-P Sacagawea Cheerios dollar
8. 1883 Liberty nickel, no cents
9. 1891-CC Morgan, spitting eagle (VAM-3)
10. 1814 Capped Bust half dollar E/A (O-108)
11. 1861-S Liberty Double Eagle, Paquet reverse
12. 1945-P Jefferson nickel DDR
13. 1878-S Morgan, parallel arrow fletch, long nock
14. 1922 no D Lincoln cent, die pair 1 reverse, die crack through O
15. 1905-O Barber dime micro-O

Thanks again to everyone who participated! Hope you had as much fun as I did putting this contest together!

I really enjoyed it thank you. I learned a lot. And have learned from past things that need research I need to do it fast or the wife gets mad. Thank you it took about a hour 21 mins to get all my answers and I used PCGS for all of them I didn't know and I knew 7 off hand which was amazing to me that I have learned that much from all of you guys on here thank you for the fun!
