    American Detectorist 5th Anniversary Contest WINNERS ANNOUNCED!

    Welcome to the American Detectorist 5th Anniversary Contest!

    We wanted to keep this contest simple and fun. You won't have to tax your brain too much on this one, just have fun with it!

    Below is a photo of every silver coin I've ever found metal detecting. Your task: Guess how many silver coins there are. It's that simple!

    1. Only one guess per person.
    2. Contest is open to all members who have at least 5 posts and were a member here on or before November 3, 2014.
    3. It doesn't matter if you go over, the closest guess wins.
    4. In the case of a tie, the earliest guess wins.
    5. Contest ends at 8:00 p.m. CST on November 11, 2014.


    FIRST PRIZE:
    $50 worth of merchandise from the American Detectorist Gift Shop, plus this 1804 Draped Bust Half Cent.
