    They were all correct. Each one nicked a dollar while the salesman was writing the guess on the whiteboard.

    The sequence is out of order, obfuscating it, but the guesses are 58-62 consecutive. 5 guesses, so the 2 outer ones are off by 2 and the 2 inner ones off by 1, the one in the middle correct.

    60 is the obvious answer, unless there is some trick. It seems too easy.

    A salesman decided to hold a contest to guess the # of silver dollars in a jar in his store window. Jill guessed 61, Bill guessed 59, Jimmy guessed 60, Seth guessed 58 and Robert guessed 62. Only one was correct. Two were wrong by 2. Two were off by 1.

    How many silver dollars were there?

    On the subject of smoke signals, be sure to read the book The Victorian Internet. It's a short read, and incredibly interesting. It talks about the history of communication from the development of electricity (which really started around 1850, very recent) and also from the use of "signaling" like smoke signals and flag and tower semaphores.

    It also talks about telegraph-based chat systems. In those days the guys sitting in telegraph offices might sit around bored with nothing to do, so would chat in much the way we do now on Teamspeak or IRC. They were the 19th century nerds.
