Of course we have three bills in an envelope that were pulled out of a bag of 12 bills. All the bills have to be $20 or under denominations. Closest guess wins under or over. Earliest guess wins. Prizes are already shown in the announcements.

READ CAREFULLY! Your guess must be on the Subject line underneath this very post not inside the message or anywhere else on the site. If your guess is not there you've just disqualified yourself. Emailing or messaging your guess further disqualifies you. If you are confused look what everyone else is doing. You've been warned.

Good luck...

Here's the first and main prize this time.

Herodian Oil Lamps, also known as, Knife Parted Lamps, are dated between 37 BCE and 70 CE. They have a wheel made round body and the nozzle was separately made and later attached. These lamps are very seldom decorated and if there are any decorations they would be simple dots or lines appearing on the nozzle. The Herodian lamps are usually found in Judea and Jerusalem, therefore it seems they were mainly used by the Jewish population.. A few were also found in the Galilee and in Transjordan.

Bronze-Age Hunting Point, Luristan Culture (Persia)
A Near Eastern Bronze Age arrowhead, dating to the Late Bronze Age approximately 1200 - 800 BC.
The bronze arrowhead with sharp points and hollow shafts, designed for insertion into a wooden tang, now long since perished.
The tri-sided type is thought to have been developed for improved accuracy and piercing capability, a deadly weapon for both hunting and battle.

Arrows such as this were used by the Early Cultures of Babylonia, Assyria and Anatolia. The Near East was at that time one of the most advanced regions on the planet and has been referred to as the "Cradle of Civilization". This arrow would have been used by some long-forgotten soldier, perhaps belonging to one of the mighty armies of Biblical King Nebuchadnezzar, approximately three Millennia ago.
Condition: Unrestored, in exceptional condition, with attractive patina. .

Approximate length of each arrow: 1 inch

One coin, two pictures front and back.

"Constantine the Great (Latin: Flavius Valerius Aurelius Constantinus Augustus;[2] 27 February c. 272[1] 22 May 337), also known as Constantine I or Saint Constantine,[3] was Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Constantine was the son of Flavius Valerius Constantius, a Roman army officer, and his consort Helena. His father became Caesar, the deputy emperor in the west in 293. Constantine was sent east, where he rose through the ranks to become a military tribune under the emperors Diocletian and Galerius. In 305, Constantius was raised to the rank of Augustus, senior western emperor, and Constantine was recalled west to campaign under his father in Britannia. Acclaimed as emperor by the army after his father's death in 306, Constantine emerged victorious in a series of civil wars against the emperors Maxentius and Licinius to become sole ruler of both west and east by 324."

"When I was fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have him around. When I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years."
Mark Twain (1835 - 1910)

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical." Thomas Jefferson

"Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy; its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery." ~Winston Churchill

Bells and whistles are nice, but nothing will substitute for the basic understanding of the hobby.
