Ok need to do a little calculating I think

Be careful with calculations, this is a mix of Copper and Zinc coins (ration of each is unknown - even to me - that would be far too much work to do)

Wow, I was a tad busy the last few days; guess I got right in the middle of guessing which is good. Just cents I see...

So I guess $18.32 ...

Watch me be way off Any of the 3 prizes would be useful to me if I do manage to win one...

$17.28 is my guess. For extra credit I believe they are all pennies.

... When is the deadline for our guesses?


Well ... let's see ....


Quote:
forgot to add that (again) it will run to Saturday (a 6 day week again) or until all remaining entrants have added their guesses.



So as to avoid confusion for the remaining participants any chance of adding a time?

I've no "skin in the game" at this point, so ... maybe consider letting the participants of the last round that missed the abrupt cutoff date for guessing throw a guess this round? (Seems like this might smooth over some disappointments... or not?)

Either way, thanks for having this contest Dearborn.

Words of encouragement are one of the major food groups.
We need to consume them regularly to thrive and grow.

Adding a time to cut of the contest? Hmm.. let me think.....

How about Saturday, August 20, 2022 at 1800 Local time (GMT -7) And if I lose track of time and end it a bit late, then the guesses will count up to the time I end it.

My guess is $15.55.

Looks like I'm going to reach 4000 posts soon, so I need to work on my own contest!

Hooray - looking forward to whatever you come up with!

I'm working on my guess Dearborn - lot's of complicated 3-dimensional Bernoulli geometry involved.

Some music to help while you ponder your decisions...

The biggest question of this whole contest that comes to mind is....
Does Dearborn know about Coinstar? Or does he collect varieties and errors?

All right - heavy calculations have been completed. I'm absolutely positive that the vase contains lots of pennies - in fact, if you add them up you'll come to .... drum roll ....

$15.13

Thanks to Dearborn for the fun contest and best of wishes to all the final participants.

unless you post real slow, I would think that the final 2 posts to get you to 4000 should not be that hard....

Coinstar? it that a new Australian coin set now that their Alphabet series is over?
I collect modern varieties - and I collect errors if they fall into my hand, I do not search them out (yet)
