This is it! It all comes down to this... the final meeting between Ugly By Nature and Ugly By Design.

 

 

Ugly Coin Competition 2014

Ugly By Nature Winner

ikaros' 1986 US Cent

Even Coinstar wouldn't take this one. It was found in the reject tray. Looks like even a little bite was taken out of it!

Ugly By Design Winner

Art's 2005 Luxembourg 2 Euro Commemorative

Placing two portraits on the surface of a coin is at best difficult. To make the two portraits reside in the same small space and present them attractively is almost impossible. In this case the portrait of Adolphe has a strange appearance. The nose is sharply pointed and the large blob directly below it - his mustache in reality, is really unattractive. They could have done better.

I didn't even remember until today that I hadn't closed it out yet! Three votes is a lot less than we've been getting, where is everyone?

How's about shutting it down and letting it end in a tie? I'm good with that.

Where are our other three usual votes? There were seven votes in almost all the other matchups... okay, I'm going to follow thedeadpoint's advice and shut it down Monday, thereby extending it a week, and hope they turn up.

 

Now watch, we'll turn up another vote and end up with eight... and tied. :D

Stopped wearing ties when I left the forces in '78. Don't like 'em. this includes competition ties. Surely there's someone else out there that can end the deadlock? :read:

Still hoping for a tie on this one. Come-on tie! Come-on tie! Close your eyes. Click your heels! Utter the chant "Ties are good!!".

I've just voted - but I'm pretty sure I'd voted before??? Can you check. I was really surprised when the indicator showed that my previous vote didn't register.

Now I've defeated my own stance! :shock::swoon::crazy:

I don't know of any way to check who has voted. Sorry.

 

BUT I'm not sorry that it's a tie. :yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo::yahoo:
