Then Stiffwrist and WolfDog went with a guess of 418, I was thinking OK, looks like I’m gonna have to make two rings for these guy's, but then along comes Fishnnut with a guess of 416, and MTtrasherdigger with a 414 very, very close, still two ring numbers. See how much fun this is, from my side of the contest!? By now, you probably figured out who won this thing, with the guess of 415……and I’m a little worried here cause I’ve only been doing coin rings for a little under a year, and the person who won the contest, is a…….. Professional Silversmith!!!, are you kidding me!!! I’m making a ring for a pro who has probably been doing Silversmithing for 45 years and can probably make rings with his eyes closed!? Of course you all know who I am talking about, right? “Silversmith45”, congratulations on the win buddy, and I just want to say,…please, please, please! take it easy on me, when you get your price……Ok? Pm me with your address and ring size buddy, thanks.

Congratulations, Richard! Great guess! After all those years of creating hand-made rings for others, it should be kind of fun to have one made specially for you.

Nice contest, BP. Sorry I missed out! I usually get a sharp eye on the contest board, but somehow I skipped the last several days. In all honesty, I would have been a tad low...I would’ve guessed around 405, assuming an “average” age of 45 for each kid.

How crazy is this though...if you include your wife and yourself, your immediate family has more than half a millennium worth of combined life experience! My little family of 4 barely breaks the century mark!

Mr. BuscaPlata
Make sure to post a pic of the finished product! I like to reval in my jealousy.

I wish to once again thank BuscaPlata for the ring that I won in his contest. It's a perfect fit. I may have to start wearing rings again. I made so many of them and not being able to wear them around my machinery and while metal detecting, I just lost interest. Either that or after making so many I just got tired of looking at them. I never tried making coin rings and i doubt if I could make one as nice as the one he made me. Thanks again.
