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 don’t 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.

Hey! That's my guess too. We must have done the same math.

Hope we both win!

This contest is over!
Thanks to everyone that participated in this contest. And I just want to say,
I sure am glad Roscoe didn’t win this thing!…sure would a been tough making a ring for that little fellow.

So this contest started off with Ice Scratcher guessing 427, and I thought, man! we’re gonna have a winner in no time at all here! 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.
