Clue 3 = canopic jars.

Clue 2 correction. Hydrogen was the real clue. It was unintentionally mispelled. This is important to clarify as misspelled words can be an additional layer of clues. Thanks to foxfriend and jampersandj.

Mystery Postal #419 NEW round of clues

There were six correct answers to this theme. Continuing on the original course most likely will not yield any other correct answers. So I will now give an additional clue that pairs with the original ones. The next clue will be 1A which combined with clue 1 may help with the answer.

I will to 2A and 3A if needed.

Clue 1 was primary colors
Clue 1A = Valknut

Enjoy!

The answer to Mystery #419 is PI. I mentioned my son earlier. He has a master’s degree in Math and has a PI tattoo. Ironically, his favorite symbol is infinity (∞). Choose PI so he didn’t have to explain why he had a sideways 8 on his arm.

The first tell was the start date of 3.14.19 which was predated to the tracker creation date of 3.15.19.

Clue explanation:

The clues this time do not go together as in previous mysteries. This time they were all associated with specific numbers. Once the light bulb went off, the numbers were PI written out to 3.1415926.

3 = There are three primary colors and a Valknut is a three triangle design.
1 (the first time) = Hydrogen has an atomic number of 1 and a unicycle has one wheel.
4 = Canopic jars come in a set of four. Quadrilaterals have four sides
1 (the second time) = One is the loneliest number according to Three Dog Night (amazing that also has a number wmhahaha)
5 = Chanel Number 5
9 = The curse of Scotland refers to the 9 of diamonds. Trishee even connected this to the Battle Culloden, which is the town in my mailing address.
2 = The two faces of Janus
6 = Insects have six legs.

Congratulations to those who experienced the aha moment. Thank you also to all who tried to solve this one. The next one will be a more traditional mystery.
