One might ask if there are non-noble numbers with this Lyapunov exponent, and indeed I think the answer is yes. The trick to this is constructing numbers with lots of 1's in the continued fraction. For example, , where there are 1's in between the 2's, might work. I do not know of a good characterization of the set of all such noble-equivalent or `nearly noble' numbers.
