Title: Easter Competition 2009 . . .
Post by: Neil on March 20, 2009, 06:35:57 PM
Welcome to the Second official DetectingWales.com competition!  



Once again the rules are really simple. To enter all you have to do is either have made over 5 posts since DetectingWales.com was formed OR to have made 5 (sensible please) posts before midnight on Saturday 12th April..

To enter, simply estimate how many buttons are in the pile - it really is that easy!

The winner is the closest person to the correct answer and will win a silver 1800's coin that several members have been struggling to find!

The closing date for entries is midnight on Saturday 11th April. The winner will be announced at ten a.m. on Easter Sunday.

Good Luck everyone.

Neil

Post by: Neil on March 29, 2009, 06:13:56 PM
Several of you have got very close, but no one has got it right yet. Obviously it will go to the person closest at the end of play if no one gets it spot on!

Anymore members out there want to have a guess? ::)

All I will tell you about the prize is its quite a lump of Silver, not a Very Fine condition coin, but decent all the same - made before 1890 and several of you have struggled to find one over the years! Need I say any more.

Keep guessing guys

Neil

Happy Easter everyone - we have a winner!

Thanks for taking part - there were numerous answers which were close - and some that were miles out! ;D

The correct answer was 131 buttons and the person who got it spot on was Melonhead!

Congratulations Melonhead, you have won a 1851 silver Half Crown of Victoria young head). If you can PM me your home address I will pop it in the post to you. Alternatively I can hand it to you at the next DetectingWales.com Rally - up to you!

Theres another competition planned for the Summer, so watch this space.

Well Done
Neil
