Notice: This contest is over and the winners will be contacted for mailing info. Thank you!




I missed my 10k post which probably occurred last week but I still wanted to run a 10,000 post contest for CCF members. I attempted to keep the rules as simple as possible. If there is a discrepancy in the rules or something I did not consider let me know and they will be updated.

Disclaimer (proof sets in cases are tough to get photos without reflections.oh well)

Rules
1. Members must have 50 posts to qualify

2. There are 3 coins in the contest to be given away as well as one proof set

3. Only the reverse will be displayed

4. One guess per day per member -guess the date & mint mark to win that item

5. Members may ask one Yes or No question per day in their post

6. Members may make a guess on any or all remaining items in their one daily post

7. First person to guess the item correctly will receive that item. The winner as well as the item will not be eligible for the remainder of the contest. In other words, you can only win once

8. Contest will continue until all items have been given away

9. Post will be updated with correct guesses as they occur as well as any questions and their answers at the discretion of the OP (which is me)

10. Sorry but I can only ship to a U.S. address. All items will be mailed at the end of the contest

Winner & question/answers are listed after the photos






Questions:

Does at least one of the non-proof coins have a mint mark? NO

Was either of the first two coins minted during the last year of issuance for that type? YES

Winner: (I will contact each winner when all items are gone)


Updates:

Coin#1 - 1941P Mercury

Coin#2 - 1963P Franklin

Coin#3 - 1897 Barber

Proof set - 1992S proof set





halfamind guessed the Franklin half (1963P) that was quick. Congrats!

jason39305 guessed the Barber quarter (1897). Good job

Zurie guessed the proof set (1992S). Congrats!

Numisma guessed the Mercury dime (1941P) Congrats!

Thank you @panzaldi. I appreciate the opportunity to compete. I'll step back now and let the rest of you duke it out. (FWIW, my screen name is a play on my enchantment with the half dollar combined with the words we heard growing up when we misbehaved: "I have half a mind to ground you for a week!")

I'm fairly new to this forum but have been coin collecting for decades. Recently, I've been learning more about errors and varieties thanks to Dr. Coop and others.
