This alphametic has numerous solutions. The couple I've found so far are

$1 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 8 = 27$
$1 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 9 = 32$

All other permutations of $N, U, M, B, E, R$ also work, as addition is commutative.


Edit:

Assume A1Z26.

$14 + 21 + 13 + 2 + 5 + 18 = 73$

This is a unique solution, given these constraints and the new tag.

    $\begingroup$ Unfortunately, people have been editing tags without understanding the question. Original tags say only include cryptography $\endgroup$

I found this one:

$1+3+4+5+6+9=28$
