Update 5 - Cryptex from Da Vinci Code Quest on Google

Here's some pics of the Cryptex from the Da Vinci Code Quest on Google.

1) Cryptex in the original box

2) Cryptex out of the box with the "secret" code selected. Hint its on the back of the box!!

3) Cryptex opened

And some interesting things.

1) The Cryptex is hard-coded, and only uses the last two letters. You can see this from the last picture - there are only two notches in the mechanism. Any combination ending in "IL" will work
2) I'm betting that there's something more about this Cryptex that will form part of the last challenge. Anyone got a black light pen? I wouldn't go selling it on ebay yet, although someone was getting a bid of over $100 for one of them...

I think you're right...people are dumb and just want the money...but I hope it has something to do with it so we have a better shot at winning!

I used a blacklight on mine--inside, outside, the paperscrap, both boxes--but turned up nothing.

My buddy and I both made it to the finals, so we opened one of the cryptex boxes and left the other sealed. I have listed the sealed box on ebay click here to go to the listing. I left it sealed, and can easily replicate the original shipping label (standard 1"x3" white label)

Most of the cryptex listings on ebay have been opened and played with, but this one is still sealed. One thing that not a lot of people mentioned is that the box came wrapped in protective tissue paper that was impossible to remove without ripping, so all of those opened boxes can never be put back in mint condition. If you pick up this one you will receive it exactly the same way the finalists did.

I created a one day auction, so that someone can receive it on the 18th (if they want to pay for next day shipping.) Hope that helps ease the pain.

The period during which a developing fetus is carried within the uterus. In humans, pregnancy
averages 266 days (38 weeks) from conception to childbirth. Traditionally, pregnancy duration
is counted from the woman's last menstrual period, which adds roughly 2 weeks to gestational
age. This is how physicians arrive at a pregnancy length of 40 weeks (280 days)
