Default Coin Ring Contest- win a Silver coin ring! Contest closes for guesses Saturday august 8th 2020 at 11:59 pm

Simple rules, guess the ages of all my kids put together, we are a blended family of 9 kids.
One clue: Wife and I are 72 and 73 and our ages will not be included in the guess.

Contest closes for guesses Saturday August the 8th 2020 at 11:59 pm.

1. Only one guess per member. Duplicates are OK. If I have 2 winners I will make 2 rings,
If we have no winner, the one closest to the correct guess wins.

2. No editing of guesses. (Note- you can quick edit your guess for a minute or so after posting without it being stamped as edited. If it is stamped edited, it is invalid)

3. I reserve the right to clarify the rules as needed if I forgot something!

4. Winner will be sent one coin ring made by me.

6. After I receive ring size from the winner, or winners, ring will be made out of a Silver Quarter or Half Dollar, Depending on ring size.
7. If you donít know your ring size, you can go to a jewelry store and get sized. I can do a size 4 to 15, anything above 15 makes the ring too thin.

Sorry, but one question, for clarification:
Your parents ages are 72 and 73, and we are guessing the ages of the grandkids, or you and your wife are 72 and 73?
Thanks
