This is a scaled claim that pays out according to the price of 100 grams of Carbon 60 (buckyballs, or buckminster fullerene), 99.5% pure, in U.S. dollars, shipping and handling not included, on Sept 30, 1999. The Payoff for YES coupons (in credicents) = (price-$1000)/15. If the price is > $2500, the payoff is 100 cents. If the price is < $1000, the payoff is 0.
The lowest price I could find is $2495, as of August 1, 1997 from Southern Chemical Group. Dynamic Enterprises Limited sells the same stuff for $2750.
The price must be available to anyone; government or educational discounts do not apply.
Update 1999-03-29: The claim will be judged using the lowest price available. Current value of one coupon is 1.00 FX$.
The help and expertise of claim holders that supply reliable information sources is much appreciated. If you find other price lists on the net, please let me know. On request, I will withhold submitted information.
From about 1999-08-31 opinions should be voiced on fx-claims with C60$99 in the subject line.
If the wording is found to be ambiguous I will judge on the basis of the perceived intent. If the intent is ambiguous I will judge on the basis of precise wording.
