COINTEST: ACTUAL COINTEST HAS ARRIVED

Recommended Posts

well, i sent my answer but i swear i saw at least three coins! :angry:

 

 

I'm laughing because I was going to say the same thing when I saw your post. I counted at least two coins, but also have a couple of "iffies". I went with my first find. I'm not sure of the name of the coin, but I think I recognize it. I'm curious as to how many others have found more than one coin.

it apears there are many things in the display that look very similar to GeoCoins!!

Let everybody keep guessing for a while, but if you get the slots filled, let us know so we know we're just playing for fun at that point. When do you want to post the answer?

I'm starting to wonder if I should cut it off as soon as I have 20 spots filled, or let you all keep playing for a while after that?

 

Oh so you're going to tease us for awhile!!! LOL :angry::D:D

oh cut it off and let us know where the coin is! there are many cointests left in this right, over the summer?

 

RSG - a tad impatient :angry:

If I cut it off too quickly I won't be able to keep it up very long, unless you want each round to last a few hours, then wait a week for the next round.

Hmmm....I think I agree with nashuan. It would be good to be able to keep guessing. What if you announce who filled which spots and then allow some time for people to continue to guess before revealing the answer?

 

If I submitted an answer (which I did...) I am like RSG and am eager to find out if I am right or not. If I missed being able to send in an answer because I stepped away from the forums to, I don't know, sleep or eat, :P I would be interested to see if I COULD have found it. But all of that adds quite a bit to your inbox....

OK...Let's see how long I can drag this out. these were the first five correct answers, in order...

 

Sent in my answer! Fingers Crossed.

I sent mine answer as well, but upon further inspection I may have jumped the gun with my answer.... guess I'll need to wait 24 hrs before I answer again :P

 

email sent

The top twenty spots are filled for the drawing, now I'll let you all discuss your answers in public. Is anyone willing to share an answer that they know was wrong??? I need to take care of some other business, then I will hold the drawing for the first Coin, but not today.

 

I think I have made this too easy.

I can't believe I got that right. :P I looked back over the picture after I sent my email and thought I saw a couple of coins located somewhere else in the picture. Then I thought my answer was wrong because it just seemed too easy, thought maybe I picked a decoy. Had me going on this one!!!

Yahoo! A right answer, now its up to the luck of the draw I guess. Good luck everyone who got it right.

I didn't even notice some of the keyrings that looked very much like Coins were in some places that looked hidden. That store certainly could do a little work on the display!!

 

This brings to mind a detail about submitting a second answer. If you submit a second answer that is wrong, but you were already in the top twenty, you will not lose your spot. Once you are in you are in!!

Ok I'll bite even though my name wasn't in those listed.

 

Here is the description I sent to WSR

 

It is on the shelf just below the first yellow pig counting from the

left of the pig banks. Just below the price tag that says $3.99 is a

shot glass with a coin in the top of it. It may be one of the Utah coins.

I hope that is a good enough description!

After I sent my email I looked at the picture again and thought I saw another coin. If you look on the bottom shelf there is a box of cards. It looks like there is a coin leaning up against the end (top) of the pack of cards in the middle, front row. This would have been my second guess.

Just adding this post to move the image to this page, so you all don't have to go back to see it.

OK, Here's your first ACTUAL COINTEST image. Good Luck...

We thought it was on the first shelf just behind the orange shot glass.

If you look directly above that spot, you'll see what that is, a keyring with a spinning penny in the middle. You can see the tag to the left a little.

Okay so is it 3rd shelf from bottom

Behind the 7th price tag from left

In the shot glass?

The third thing I saw that I thought could have been a coin is on the 3rd shelf down, right behind the 3rd $2.49 price tag from the right, there is a square shape showing through the glass shelf. I thought maybe that was a coin laying on top of something on the next shelf down. It looked kinda like the back of the 2008 Allegany coin. Would have been my third guess.

I was wondering about the lowest shelf of keyrings. Just below the middle price tag is something red and oval. I thought at first it might be one of those christmas ornament geocoins or maybe an egg geocoin

Yeah, that looks like it could have been an Easter Egg geocoin.

WOOHOO! That was my initial guess and it was right even though I had second guessed myself after looking again.

This was my second guess, as I thought my first guess was a decoy and didn't expect it to be so easy...

I'll have to say it was easier than finding that dang alien in a few pics...

:laughing::P:laughing: just the luck of the draw now! good luck everyone and thanks WSR!

OK, I'm using numbered tokens 1-50, and drawing one at random. The numbers are assigned to the correct answers in order(with the first correct answer getting numbers 1-10, and the 20th correct answer getting the number 50)

 

The draw brings up number 5, so the one who answered correctly first is the winner in this round!

I sended email too, but It is too hard for me!

I do not know many coins so everything looks.... :P

 

I hope I am right!

Email sent...

 

But, as I said to WSR, this store really needs someone to put things in order.... there are so many things out of place that it makes it harder to tell if something is a coin or just some merchandise in the wrong place!

I found this one hard!

 

The other one I did the same as some others, I spotted the right location but then started to second guess myself and picked somewhere else instead.... :P
