    At the hardware store

    Howdy Brainbenders,

    I went to the hardware store to pick up something that I needed for the house. I found that 1 cost $2.50, 48 cost $5.00, and 1582 cost $10.00. What was I buying?

    Good luck!

    13 views and not a single guess? Alright then. I'll up the stakes. The first person to answer correctly in this little contest will win the following coin:

    At one point, it was the oldest coin in my collection, and I still remember how thrilled I was to find it.


    Kindest regards,

    Re: At the hardware store

    Hello All,

    Congratulations to Montana Jim!! He will now be the proud owner of my 1917 Wheat cent once he PMs me his address or PO Box. The correct answer is: Numbers for the outside of my house, so that the pizza man can find me from the street. Each number costs $2.50.

    Once again, Congratulations Jim. I was actually born in Great Falls, and love that part of the country. PM me your address and I'll send out your prize shortly.

    Kindest regards,
    Kantuck

    Re: At the hardware store

    Hi Ivan,

    I'd heard and correctly answered this one a couple years back, and thought I'd post it here from memory. I was just throwing out random numbers, trying to show that each number would cost $2.50. You are correct though, 1482 might have made it a bit easier to solve. I think I've got another wheat cent in really bad shape sittin' around here somewhere. PM me your address, and I'll mail it forthwith.

    Kindest regards,
    Kantuck
