Dockwallipers metal detecting finds contest.


Recommended Posts

During the Calander year 2006 I recovered exactly 5055 coins with my detector.

Of that total 143 were Foriegn(non-US)

That leaves 4912 coins with a face value of $336.91.

 

Here's the contest part....

How many of each coin did I find?

 

Cent

Nickel

Dime

Quarter

Half dollar

dollar

 

You guess a number for each denomination, I will respond with, Too high, too low or correct. First to get all the numbers correct wins.

 

You can guess again when the time stamp on your last guess is 12 hours old.

 

The prize will be a coin that I recently upgraded in my collection.

 

Good luck
