[solved] Subcategories in the catalogue

Quote: "oggy"​I think this is a good time to discuss this. It could be implemented in a variety of different ways. • ​ • ​Instead of having separate countries for things like 'German States' and 'South Africa - Boer Republics' we could enter the parent of Germany/South Africa, and then allow them to have children. This was will make the catalogue a lot easier to search, and cut down on the number of countries in that big long list. • ​ • ​So for example, the parent Germany could include the children: • ​ • ​- Weimar Republic • ​- Prussia 1800-1869 • ​- Nazi Germany • ​- Germany (1950+Present) • ​ • ​Russia could have: • ​ • ​USSR (Soviet union • ​Russian Empire • ​Modern Russia • ​etc etc etc • ​ • ​And Tokens could include • ​ • ​- Medals • ​- Bullion rounds • ​- Old grocery tokens • ​ • ​Exonumia could includ[...]

1 euro Error or Fake?
Posted: 15-Feb-2014, 06:31PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Thank you all for your fast responses. I appreciate it. My first thought when I saw the coin was that had been forcibly separated. However, after a careful examination of the coin's surface I noticed continuous abrasions on both materials of the same side. Another thought is that if anyone had forcibly extracted the ring of the coin, the re-positioning process would have not led to such tight fit between the two coin parts. Additionally, I would like to know how much the current state of the coin (abrasion, strikes) affects its collectible value.
