OK, ready for round 2? This round will cut the field to 9 winners of this round (it was going to be a higher amount but with the limited amount of people what can I do?) It was pointed out that I didn't invite the entire community to this contest (to be honest - I didn't even know I typed that in as I copy/pasted from another contest and didn't proof read.)

ANYWAY, out of the remaining 15, 9 will move on to round 3 - of which 3 will win a prize.

So this one will use the same vase as before, but in it will be a pre-counted amount of Nickels AND dimes. Nickels are at the bottom, Dimes at the top and separated in a zip-top bag. (the weight of the bag has been determined and NOT included in the total weight.)

This round will be an over/under contest. they who gets the closest to the total dollar amount will move on.

EDIT: Round will either last one week, or if all 15 guesses come in early, I'll end it at that point and post results.

The total weight of the vase and coins is: 5881 grams

It is noted up above just above the picture.

But 1 week max, or until all 15 guesses are in - which ever comes first.

Just to clarify what an over/under contest means, is there a penalty for going over the correct amount this round, or do all guesses count whether they are over or under?
