Has this reverse been turned or ..? I still can see from reflection the lettering. There is no hole in the centre though it looks so on the picture. •

Coin shops and markets in Tallinn, Estonia
Posted: 27-Jun-2014, 09:47PM in Free discussion

Unfortunately in Tallinn there are no good antique shops or markets where you could buy coins with reasonable price. Prices in markets are seldom way overpriced and same thing is with antique shops. • If you would like to buy modern Estonian coins you should visit Estonian Bank Museum  - not far from City Centre - there you can buy commemorative coins with right price. • Only market near old town or harbour is Jaama market where you can find coins for sale. But as I mentioned - prices are from another dimension. • Sven

How do you store and manage your collection?

Quote: nosouvenirsIs there any way to make this available to people if they want it, and promise not to reshare? I've wanted a really good way to be able to SORT my coins on a database for ages. I'd love to be able to see all the statistics that you can see with your website at a glance, for my own coins.Maybe even an exchange this program against certain number of coins could be considered as option?

Will add them in the future if anyone is interested in. • Sven

Germany 1 Pfennig 1950
Posted: 8-Dec-2012, 03:43PM in Coin identifications and valuations

I found a 1950 1 pfennig coin from a bulk.  But material looks like Bronze instead of Copper-plated steel. • I do not have precise scale to weigh it but has anyone seen such a coins before? • I took one picture also. •

Are these coins?
Posted: 30-Nov-2012, 09:02AM in Numista catalogue

These weren't in catalogue. In ebay some of them were sold and marked as Medals in description. I assume that these are not commemorative coins but I'm not 100% sure. • Maybe some Danish people can tell more about these silver "coins/medals/tokens". • Sven

Belgium 1 Franc 1993 (French)

Is this kind of error common? Coin on the left has number 3 in date connected with border. On the right is normal coin to compare. • Thanks in advance, • Sven

Swapping etiquette
Posted: 14-Nov-2012, 10:57PM in Swaps and trades

I have a question for everyone. • Some collectors collect coins by type and some by date. And if I have certain type of coin in my exchange list and I have 5 different years of it. Let's say • 1990 1 pcs • 1991 20 pcs • 1992 20 pcs • 1993 20 pcs • 1994 2 pcs. • Then quite often so-called "type collectors"  choose 1990 or 1994. Have you guys noticed such a pattern? I find it weird. It is obvious that 1990 and 1994 should be a bit more rare that the others. not by value usually but by mintage. Is it important for type collector which year he will get? As I collect world coins by type also I will try to select most produced year or the coin that my swap partner has most. Other thing is that if he selects 1991 or 1992 or 1993 coin I could offer him coin with better quality as I have a chance to choose it. Another thing is that if I do not choose that "rare" coin then some collector who is collecting by year can s[...]

How old are you ? What's your job ? And other hobbies ?
Posted: 12-Nov-2012, 01:01PM in Free discussion

Hi Everyone, • My name is Sven and I'm Estonian. 30 years young and I've been collecting coins since i was 10 years old. Working as technical support in refrigeration business but studied logistics in university before. I'm a hobby collector - usually I'm buying some bulks or coin lots and then searching them through and discovering new coins all the time - it is an activity where i can have time with myself. My goal is to have European 20th century coins by year and World coins by type. Never expect to accomplish it but it's good to have a big dream   • I've been Numista member almost 2 years now - but now became active and started to add all my coins couple of months ago. Still in process as it takes a lot of time. • Best Regards, • Sven
