    Contest***contest***contest (WINNER - SirCray)

    So here it is folks. Guess how many marbles are in the container. Please look at all previous guesses as the second identical guess gets tossed out. If guess is tossed the Guesser will get another guess, I will try and keep a running list of all guesses in this post.
    RULES:: One guess per member. Closest guess under or over to the actual number wins: If there are two guesses the same count smaller and greater away from the actual number, the one that is under will win. We will keep the contest open until we go 48 hours with no more guesses. Sorry no hints or clues I will send 100 of the marbles in the jar to the winner along with a few more. I will be adding a prize every 10 guesses.(with pic) So get to guessing!!!! And spread the word on the other boards and Facebook groups!! There is a sticker on the back of the container with the number of marbles written on it. PLEASE GUESS IN THIS THREAD!!

    423, because that is my number.

    I actually made 372 as my guess when I counted up the marbles. But 423 is my number. So if I ever didn't guess it and it turned out to be the winner, I'd kick myself.

    So, 423.

    We passed the first 10 guesses so here are some added prizes. PeeWee Bennington, A Bulgarian Handmade, a nice mint CAC swirl and a Fred Wilganowski Hand made Guinea mimic. Just 7 more guesses and I will add another group of marbles (they will get better and better, so get some folks to come play!!!!
