As promised, to celebrate reaching the 10,000 post mark, I am holding a simple contest. Many of you may be familiar with the idea (borrowed from @lawest) from my "5,079th Post Contest":

http://goccf.com/t/305243

It requires some basic knowledge of Lincoln cents, but mostly luck!

The Rules

You must have at least 50 posts to play!
Members from all countries can participate.
You are allowed one guess per day. The day will reset at 12:00AM ET (forum time displayed in the upper left corner of CCF pages).
No Editing! Make sure your guess will count.
The contest starts immediately after this post.

The Game

Here are the game pieces:




Here is the game board:




I have arranged the three folders in order from top to bottom. I then rolled/bounced the three small marbles one at a time onto the board from various angles and with varying force until all three had settled in a hole.

Your job is to guess a hole by date and mintmark (if any). You will also need to specify VDB, Small Date/Large Date and Copper/Zinc for the appropriate years. If you guess a hole that a marble landed in, you are a winner and advance to Part Deux for a chance at the Grand Prize!

(Part Deux will be a new thread and consist of the three winners from Part 1 duking it out to guess where the big marble landed on just one folder, but more on that when the time comes.)

The possible answers range from 1909VDB at the upper left to 2016-D at the lower right. The last blank hole doesn't count. The year 2009 only has one P and D hole - the design varieties aren't necessary. There is no 1922 "Plain" or Doubled Die holes and proof-only issues are not included.

I will update with a list of guesses periodically to make things a little easier to track.

That should be clear enough.

The Prizes

The Grand Prize will be revealed when Part Deux begins , but for now, here are the consolation prizes for the two runners-up:







Game on!

Note: as I did with the previous version of this, pics of the winning dates have already been uploaded to CCF, just in case anything comes into question.

Also, I may allow two guesses per day at some point depending on how it goes. Stay tuned!

And we're off!

@Dennman

I started this after midnight forum time, so these guesses count for Monday, eastern time. I see you're in BC, so add three hours to get the Forum Time. Also, the forum time is shown on the upper left of every CCF page.

I'm confused , shouldn't we have to pick 3 guesses if your rolling 3 marbles ?
