# How many coins are possible?

Calvin put 2001 coins of 1, 2 or 3 dollars in a row. It turned out that between any two 1-dollar coins there is at least one coin; between any two 2-dollar coins there are at least two coins; and between any two 3-dollar coins there are at least 3 coins. There are $$k$$ three dollar coins. How many values of $$k$$ are possible?
