Do you have an issue with coins from the Third Reich?
Posted: 24-Sep-2016, 02:25AM in Free discussion

None. Being of Dutch-German-Jew descent I heard many stories of WW2 while growing up. Now at 70 I find they sparked a love of history for that time. I collect mainly from 2 areas-modern US coins and WW2 world coins. I have many "Nazi" coins as well as coins from occupied countries. I don't concern myself with any of the political Iidiocy- as was stated in an earlier comment- it belongs in the past. I LIKE the 3rd Reich coins. I LIKE the coins from Vichy France. I think about how fortunate I am that I've never had war on my doorstep.. So, my answer is none. No problems with any collectable from the WW2 era.

Also the 1921 was minted in high relief which made them wear more and impossible to stack. The design was changed in 1922 to eliminate these problems. This is why quality 1921 coins are hard to find.

World coins chat: USA
Posted: 6-Sep-2015, 09:37AM in Free discussion

Jokinen- Because the govt. has been printing so much currency with nothing to back it, the dollar has less value year after year. There is some talk that it will be replaced as that "worlds" currency in the next five years. It has been suggested that since we have so much debt to other countries-particularly China and that they have bought so much gold-that they will replace the US as the world money standard and perhaps go back on the gold standard.

Thinking of slimming my collection, thoughts ?
Posted: 25-Jan-2015, 11:12PM in Free discussion

I've been collecting for 60 years and until the end of 2013 it was strictly US coins. In 2013 I found numista-hoping to trade some of the "foreign" coins that I had come by over the years. Reading the forum I came across a comment about collecting Nazi coins-Nazi coins hmmm. This led me into occupation coinage which brought me into Vichy and other coinage and eventually into " one (at least) from every country". I'm involved heavily with the NGC Registry and getting all the raw world coins has caused a lot of cataloging headaches. I find myself trading for coins that I already have...  Thinking about downsizing and sticking to my original interests. I'm not sure how much I want to keep. Maybe all. I just seem to be spread out too much trying to find all the coins that catch my interest. Besides several of my Registry sets are top 10 and I need to concentrate on upgrading them.  

How much do you spend buying coins?

I sold coins on ebay for about 10 years, until their fees and policies became to restrictive. I sold primarily TPG coins from NGC and PCGS as well as sets that I had put together in custom plastic cases. I found I usually always did better on Buy it now items. I still have MANY coins and sets for sale (or trade) and am thinking of selling there again.

Posted: 13-Jan-2015, 06:47PM in Swaps and trades

Phil has a very good point at the end of his post about people looking for silver and trying to rip you off. I disagree with his point about buying for melt though. All coins have a numismatic value and there are several websites that can give you current market values. Try Numismedia or the NGC price guide. There are also grading guides available like photograde or the ANA Grading Standards.

Posted: 2-Jul-2014, 05:54AM in Numismatic questions

Quote: Walder CoinsIts about provenance. The fact that a coin once belonged in a famous collection means it is held in higher regard than others. It is less likely to be fake doctored or mistreated. At least in theory. Also there is the snob factor, a collector can say that they have a coin that was in the great collection of Joe Blocks expert and connoisseur etc...     And yes... generally they do go higher on the auction sites and shows.

Quote: erdvillaTo you guys, which is the easiest Country/Territory to have a complete coin type set? I mean, a country maybe with few coin types and all currency and common ones, or a country with a little more coin types but cheap and easy to find. • I ask this because there are some countries that for an amateur, and even a professional collector are impossible to complete even by types only, example of this Mexico, as it has over 1000 types to date, one third are gold coins or bi-metal coins with gold in them, so that is quite expensive (up to 1kg gold "coins"). Then, the remaining 2/3rds nearly 5/9ths are pure or partially silver, many of them not so expensive, but a lot of colonial and proof expensive ones. And that leaves only a 1/9th of common types of cheap currency to be collected.       South Arabia- counting the proof coins a total of 8 coins.

Some ideas for the Numista website
Posted: 20-Jan-2014, 05:47PM in Numista website

Quote: PajaSkotThis happened to me few months ago.. A person I've never seen before knocked on my door and I opened and he asked for my name... He said that we arranged a swap on Numista and he was passing through my town, so he decided to personally bring me coins, without notice or previous agreement. • It turned out that he was a friendly and nice person, but situations like this can also be creepy. Creepy?? I think I would enjoy the fact that someone I had made as a friend but had never met would bother to look me up because we shared a hobby. I believe that 99% of life is atttitude. If you go through life thinking only negative things about people then that's all you'll see in your everyday relationships. Your life will be so much better if you're not always looking for someone to mess you up. I'm not saying you shouldn't take some precautions because there are always those who live just to "get one over" on other people. Just enjoy the g[...]

Idea for swap List. Show only coins addition

Quote: Diego KnyteHow about being able to filter the Coins to Exchange list by metal type like silver.  It'd be cool to browse someone's silver list for something sassy to swap. • Just a thought. Thanks in advance.    I personally don't like this idea. I generally don't list my silver because on my very first swap here someone tried to rip me off. If my silver coins need to be involved I message a list to the other party. Saves me a lot of hassle.

Quote: ArnoVHere's some more to learn for crruisercharlie: • The Netherlands do not have a personification of the nation, like Marianne or Britannia. We do have some national symbols: windmills, tulips, wooden shoes and cheese. When I come to think of it, awfully little of this is used on coins. • Windmills: Never depicted on a Dutch coin. • Tulips: Twice! • On a 2012 5 Euro to celebrate the 400 year relationship with Turkey: • And strangely enough on the WWII occupation dime. (If I would ever occupy a country, I would be reluctant to use national symbols on the new coins.) • Wooden shoes: Never depicted on a Dutch coin. • Cheese: Never depicted on a Dutch coin but to judge from the shape, I suppose that the Wisconsin state quarter depicts a Gouda type of cheese. Wisconsin cheese making was founded by European settlers, among them many Dutch. Wisconsonians even share the same derogatory name with the Dutch: cheeseheads, kaaskoppen! &[...]

Coin holders 2x2 self-adhesive vs. for stapling
Posted: 13-Jan-2014, 07:49PM in Numismatic questions

Which flips ?

Quote: Mark240590I have been using card 2x2 flips but if I want the coin it's a chew on getting it out and may even be the death of it (more so the self adhesive). I'm considering plastic wallets now, but what's your opinion. Either the 2 sided type to write notes or just singles ? • What's the long term effectiveness of these ? I presume no damage as I've found some bloody old ones in my time too !  I usually use the staple type cardboard flips. Some times instead of staples I use scotch tape. Also I use Loctite plastic holders - the 2 halves snap together - and have a little notch in the corner so you can reopen them. I also have a few Capital holder that the halves screw together.

Quote: kommodore • • For this coin why is there a 1882/1 (82) MS-M entry, and a 1882 (82) MS-M entry? • ThanksWell... not really being familiar with the coin I would suggest this: Wrong (old 1881) dies were used at the beginning of the 1882 run, were restruck with new 1882 dies and then the run was finished with the new 1882 dies. This gives you both varieties.

Posted: 13-Dec-2013, 01:11AM in Numismatic questions

Quote: ALLRED1950That ok about a year ago i used some 2 dollar bills and the casher call her manger to see they could still take them.  LOL          There is currently legislation in the US Congress to do away with the paper dollar currency and replace it with a dollar coin. There are several different reasons behind this. One is that it is cheaper to make dollar coins in the long run because they last longer than paper bills. The "life expectancy" of a dollar bill is 2 years - whereas a coin will generally last at least 10 years. Another is that because the dollar coin has been "less than popular" - there are millions of them sitting in Federal reserve vaults. SBAs would be resigned to collector status and all circulation dollar coins after them would still be legal tender. The dollar bill would be fazed out in 4 years.

In 1971, coins were issued in the name of "Democratic Yemen", changing to the "People's democratic Republic of Yemen" in 1973. That year, aluminium 2½ fils were introduced, followed by aluminium 10 fils and cupro-nickel 100 and 250 fils in 1981.

Quote: antonpieterI'm curious what the thoughts on Numista are about the future of using coins, with the coming technology of 3D printing. Seems to me that with these techniques modern coins could to easily be forged, or I'm being a pessimist?  There's legislation in the US Congress right now to do away with the dollar paper currency and use dollar coins. The average use expectancy of a dollar bill is 2 years. A dollar coin is 10 years plus. It costs just a little more to mint a coin but over time is much more cost effective. The govt. saves billions of dollars. There is some talk of also doing away with pennies and nickels - there's more than a penny's worth of copper in each penny - not cost effective at all. Both coins are also used less in commerce. Usually they end up in somebody's jar-or here on Numista being traded.

First trade
Posted: 3-Dec-2013, 11:35PM in Swaps and trades

I'm new to this site--was attracted by the fact that people are willing to trade coins--and I think I've figured out how to make these transactions. My point is: Does everyone on this site expect some kind of lengthy negotiation or are there a lot of people who are trying to 'get over" on you? I'm pretty fair and expected to be treated that way also. My first trade offer was so ridiculous that I immediately turned it down. I wanted about $16 worth of coins and he expected me to give him $100 worth of silver  coins in exchange. I messaged him and he said I need to learn to negotiate if I want to be on this site. All I can say is that I wasn't born yesterday and I'm a little disappointed in the trade offers so far. All I've asked for is equivalent value in exchange. I have managed to make 1 trade-it seemed equitable to me-and have a couple more in the works. I'll wait and see. Maybe I'll just keep selling on ebay.
