South to lead at no-trumps.  North-South to win seven tricks.

Thanks to Dick Yuen for noticing that this is isomorphic to Problem 114 in the Coffin collection.  It seems that Coffin made the same oversight in the 1940s as mine 60 years later.  The solutions to these two problems in his book are identical apart from the obvious changes and some minor changes in wording.
