Guessing Comp - How much and how many?
« on: July 29, 2017, 22:04 »
Hello all!,
Well, my decimal coin ice-cream container was full, so last week it was banked.
It had all my decimals coins, since 2013, and the volume went up and down, as
coins were raided for school lunches etc :) .

So I thought I'd put up a guessing comp post, to see who the good guessers were!
No prize, just the kudos that you got it!
Conditions:
  • Runs until 8pm Sunday 6 August 2017. Totals posted ~8:15pm Sunday 6 August 2017
  • One entry per member
I like statistics, so for those astute fellow  Detectorists,

Q1) What's the total $?
note: cut coins not included in total
Q2) How many coins(cut coins are included in total)?
Q3) What was the decimal coin I dug the most number of?
Q4) What was the decimal coin I dug the least number of?
Q5) How many cut coins did I dig?

Goodluck, and beware the guard-cat!

Edit: 2L ice cream container

Does the winner get the cat?  I could say something else but will keep it clean!  Is that a normal size ice cream container?

Hi. I'm guessing total coins to be 428.
The total value $316.00
The coin found the most if anything like me and can be bothered digging them would be 5c pieces although I don't think I see them in the piles?
Cheers Chris.
