Curaçao or Suriname
Posted: 25-Jan-2019, 05:52PM in Numista catalogue

I don't think that it is a good thing when we leave duplicates be. 'Who cares...' ? Well, I think it is messy and confusing. It also messes up statistics of the site and of the collector. Besides, if it wouldn't matter to anyone the discussion wouldn't have been started. • A voting is fine with me. As long as the arguments are reflected carefully.

Suriname 100 cents edge variety
Posted: 19-May-2018, 02:10PM in Numismatic questions

Hi, • a user reported a edge variety for 1989 type. I cannot find any reference of this edge variety in the literature nor on the internet. • The variety would be that one type has a sharp (flat) edge reeding and the other is beveled (wired). I'm a bit worried that this might be contributed to wear, althoug he is claiming that the coins are in rather high quality. In my own coins I can find the beveled edges, but these might very well be due to wear. • Any insights on this matter? Maybe someone can check his/her collection to see whether they a differency in edge type. • Thanks in advance, • Chilian (referee of Suriname)

How should the ruler's name be written?
Posted: 7-Jan-2018, 11:08PM in Numista catalogue

Well then. Shouldn't the same rules apply with the ruler? I didn't follow this discussion that well, but browsing through the catalog I assume the endonyms are used right now (i.e. Gulden instead of Guilder). • Just thinking out loud. Maybe a mouseover option could apply for these names as well? Just like we use for the description of the designers. In this way (relevant) 'other' names can easily be seen as well.

Beautiful commemorative coins that cost less than €10
Posted: 5-Jan-2018, 06:17PM in Free discussion

A few times a year the Dutch National Mint (KNM) issues commemoratives with some great designs, if you ask me. Most of the times they include a 5 euro coin which are sold for 5 euro; Red Cross, Johan Cruyff, Stelling van Amsterdam, Jheronymus Bosch (you gotta love Bosch ) •

Quality of postal services for countries
Posted: 4-Jan-2018, 02:55AM in Swaps and trades

Netherlands: • Good quality postal system. Usually delivers the next day when posted nationally. The last few years it might take a day extra. Usually nothing gets lost, although once or twice it might, but I don't think it gets stolen. • Anyway, good, reliable and trustworthy postal system, if you ask me. No need for registred mail on this side. • Costs: reasonably, in my opinion.

Posted: 24-Dec-2017, 02:25PM in Numista catalogue

But, doesn't that create a new problem? Then the coin is listed twice on Numista. That would mess up statistics, as well as personal, as Numista's.

Difficult to identify the mint in '1 Franc - Baudouin I Dutch text' Coin
Posted: 30-Oct-2017, 01:23AM in Numista catalogue

Hi Marcelo, • there are 4 kinds of this particular year of this particular coin. The key is in the orientation (coin or medal alignment) and in the signature of the designer Marcel Rau. • 1951: 'normal'; coin alignment; signature says: "RAU" • 1951: medal alignment • 1951: coin alignment; without signature (No "RAU") • 1951: coin alignment; signature says: "RAU." (with a dot afterwards) • I hope that helps. • Kind regards and good luck

Change alarm
Posted: 6-Aug-2017, 10:35PM in Numista website

Hi, • I would like to know when a change/update has been made to one of the coins in my collection. I could make a mental picture of all the pages and check them regularly... oh wait, no, actually I cannot. • Is there a way that I can get a message when an item is changed? I tried RSSowl, but maybe I did something wrong. • The reason why I would want to be notified is because I want to make sure that I have the right variety, for instance. This goes especially for the coins in my swaplist. Sometimes a new variety is added, of which I didn't know. The wrong variety could be in my swaplist which makes it a bit awkward in the swapping process (or even when the swapper get the coin at home). • Thanks in advance.

Hi, • I'm looking for a nice trade. I've got coins to trade from all over the world, but mostly Europe (and a load of Dutch coins). • I mainly collect types, but in the end also different years and varieties.

French chambres de commerce coin

Hi, • can anyone help me out with these coins from the chambers of commerce? Like this one: • I'm wondering what the mark underneath "CENTIMES" is supposed to be? Is it a cornucopia as well? Which would mean that the mint Vincennes would bear the same mark as Pessac/Paris later? • Also I would like to know what the "BR.AL." stands for. • Thanks in advance! • Kind regards

Double finches
Posted: 3-Apr-2015, 01:43AM in Numista website

Okay, I'll admit it: I have a double check mark fetish (a 'finch' translated to/from Dutch). • And I absolutely dislike the fact that I can't have a double check mark on a coin, simply because I don't own a proof quality or an error or anything else. I'm simply not interested in those coins. • Is it possible that an extra box after 'Exchange' (for instance) is added to check/finch, signifying that I'm not interested in these coins? • This could also help swapping, since those coins wouldn't have to appear on the swapping charts. • Kind regards.

Colombia leper colony
Posted: 27-Apr-2014, 02:03PM in Numismatic questions

Thanks for your input, I really apreciate it. • It still seems a bit off to me that coins with such small differences would have different designers... Or that only on one kind of coin the designer initials are mentioned. But, then again, it would be as good as an explanation as my mint mark theory. • Maybe there is someone with a Colombian coin catalogue at hand?

How to suggest changes to the Krause Catalogues
Posted: 6-Nov-2013, 11:55PM in Numismatic questions

I always wondered what the sources of Krause are. Do they get their information first hand from the mints? Do they rely on 'specialists' from each country? Do they use local catalogs? Do they do their own measurements?

Suriname 10 cent 1988
Posted: 21-Oct-2013, 12:25AM in Numista catalogue

According to my Dutch catalog (Suriname was a Dutch colony in our sinister history) and according to Krause, the alloy is cupro-nickel instead of steel-plated... which would make it non-magnetic.

Netherlands 10 euro cent 2012
Posted: 17-Oct-2013, 05:10PM in Numismatic questions

The Dutch mint (KNM) states that legal tender is used, so that it officially is. But, it does not guarantee that it will be accepted at all stores. Does that make it a token? At our website we sorted it as a token, but Numista would have to decide for it self. • Link in Dutch

Coin microscopic photography

Hi, • I would like to make some pictures of details of coins. The problems I have so far with my scanner and a relatively cheap USB-microscope is that it just does not meet the resolution. Another problem I come across is the lighting. • I see a lot of high resolution, good quality images on the site here. Although I'm looking to blow them up even more. • Does anyone have an easy solution for these problems? Or a good advice which microscope to purchase for a reasonable price? • Thanks in advance.
