I've been doing some organizing, and I've decided to clear out some space by giving away some BU and proof Lincoln cents. These will go to one young numismatist who has an interest in collecting Lincoln cents. Guess a number between 1 and 50, and the closest guess wins when the contest ends on Monday 5pm EDT. Ties for the closest will go to the one who guesses first. The only stipulations are a minimum of 50 posts, age under 21, and address in the USA. Good luck!

Yeah, I'm sure you're under 21, T-BOP!

Although if I don't get any YN's that are interested, I may have to open it up to a wider age range...

My daughter is 12 and collects cent varieties as well. She is a YN with ANA (Atabby66) and reads these with me occasionally. If acceptable to piggyback on my account - She would like to guess her age - 12.

Your daughter certainly qualifies, especially as an ANA YN!

Well, we have 2 eligible entrants so far (and one supportive Dad), so that makes a contest! 2 more days left for guesses by YN's.

I guess there aren't many YN's out there, or they don't collect Lincolns... only one more day before the contest ends! Since it's Father's Day, any fathers with kids that collect can enter on behalf of their child.

The contest will end later today, and if we get no more guesses, the two entrants will have pretty good odds! One last chance for any YN's to get their guess in.

Congrats to @That Coin Dude for coming closest to the correct number! The number is shown in the photo below. Even though there weren't many guesses, you were so close that you probably would have won even with more guesses. Please PM me with your address, and I'll get these coins shipped out to you.

And @sheldius, since your daughter came in a close second, I'll send her a consolation prize if you PM me your address. Thanks for playing!

Congrats That Coin Dude.
Zuire, to bad more YN's didn't see or didn't participate. It was a great idea for a contest.

Thanks again Zurie. Received the package. She is quite pleased, especially with the semi-key dates.
