​H.A. Sternberg showed a very clever coin puzzle in The Numismatist in 1928.. "The trick is to take seven coins—half dollar, quarter dollar, nickel and four pennies, totaling 84 cents—and arrange them in two rows, five coins in each row, each row totaling 82 cents. Sounds impossible, but it can be done. Try it."
