Korea Finder (special spare change edition)


One of the many things I did on my recent return to Korea was fishing my coin-filled honey jar from my car so I could take it to a local bank in Hawai'i and cash it in (literally).

As a contest for regular readers, I'd like to have people guess the value of the coins inside (all US). If at least a dozen people participate, I may consider giving a free Starbucks coupon to he person who guesses the closest, as long as it's within 5% (one guess per person).

This could be more fun than McD's Olympic gold sweepstakes.

Contest closes within one week or after I go to the bank, whichever is later.

UPDATE:
Though I originally posted this on July 31, at 6:23 p.m., I'm going to try to leave this at the top of my blog until I finally have time to go to the bank.

  1. O.K., I'll bite (first). My guesss is $8.00! Will you let me know how much it was, even if less than a dozen people participate? Just curious.

      Okay, perhaps you are right about changing the rules.

    1. Gah? What's a Heidemann?

      Anyway, thanks for being a good sport about this.

  4. It's a neologism I just came up with, with the meaning of: 'Shamelessly exploiting an unfair advantage for an undeserved second, third and fourth chance to take the win away from someone who truly deserved it', named after Britta Heidemann, the German fencer who exulted over her dishonorable win over Shin Ahram.
