New swap list
Posted: 26-Apr-2020, 05:16PM in Numista website

Hi Xavier, • What a shock to see the new swap list for the first time! It is change and we have to get used to it. It will take some time. But I like the feature to only see items that you do not have. That makes it a lot faster. • And now we also have banknotes! I added a lot of the missing ones but it will take a few weeks to get it all up to date. At least I can drop Colnect, a site I really never got used to. I like Numista a lot better! Time you start charging a little bit ($10.00?) for members? • Thanks for all your hard work. • Ben

[solved] Improved Add a personal comment.
Posted: 23-Aug-2019, 10:06AM in Numista website

When someone selects a coin from my swap list and I fulfill the order I mark it off his request list and I mark it it off out of my inventory, so that the next collector can not select it. • However sometimes I notice that the physical coin has a different grade or needs a personal comment. • I add that to the coin, but because it was taken from my inventory it will not show. • Could you make any comment changes on an active swap be preserved? • I hope I explained this well and if you can take it under consideration. • Best Regards. • Ben

[solved] Would it be possible to show the last date of the members activity on the Profile page
Posted: 5-Aug-2019, 03:50PM in Numista website

Hi, • Next to the Member Since could we add Last Activity date. • I think that some members left us and all this information is still showing. • Maybe we could select for swap only members that were active in the last X years. • Thanks for considering this suggestion. • Ben

What was the reason for deleting the proof/unc sets from Numista? Can we revisit this issue?
Posted: 5-Aug-2019, 03:43PM in Numista website

I would rather that the proof sets are not included. • Most of the time when I see proof coins on the swap list it is selected by accident. • It also does not allow a double check showing that a series is complete. • In any case it is not a big issue for me, just a little more time consuming. • Best Regards, • Ben

Excel download
Posted: 1-Nov-2018, 11:06AM in Numista website

Hi Numista, • It would be so much better, easier and logical if the downloaded Excel is in the exact same position as the swap proposal. For Instance a Macao coin shows 11th in my swap list but when I download it it shows on 34th position. This happens frequently and it might have to do because some countries got realligned (Macau got put together with China). • Your solution is much appreciated. • Ben

Hi! • I am trying to get a Hong Kong dollar without a security edge. A few collectors show this coin. However so far they sent me coins with security edges.

KM versus L and other index numbers
Posted: 11-Mar-2016, 09:03PM in Numista website

Please start all references to the index numbers of in the same way. Please take KM first and Y second as that are the most often used index numbers. By mixing up the order it also show incorrect in the "edit your collection" and I for one had to re index number my 2 by 2 cards which is messy. (see eg Luxembourg 1 franc (KM 55) shows as L 305.

Hi Xavier, • Thank you so much for putting this back. This layout is better than before with the country names on each line. • A possible improvement for a future revision might be to add the comments in the bubble, as that is where we write our grades and prices. The mint column is nice but not so important (at least for myself). • In any case thanks, thanks, thanks!

[solved] I wish to get this coin / I don't wish to get this coin
Posted: 5-Mar-2016, 10:50AM in Numista website

Can this be set on each line item? • When there is a number of coins listed for a specific KM #, I would like to only wish a specific year of that coin, not the whole range. • Also if I wanted to get an improved coin I could show that I have a VG coin but I still wish to get a better grade. Right now the exclamation mark would not show on other swap lists. • Conversely I would like to specify "I don't wish to get this coin" also on a specific line item so I can filter out the varieties, rare coins, proof coins, mint sets etc.

Old members / gone members
Posted: 29-Jan-2016, 05:46AM in Numista website

I am sure that nobody wants to remove anyone who is active on this site. Swaps or no swaps. However if one has not posted anything, has not added or subtracted any coins or does not respond to messages for over two years, we might consider placing their swap list on a separate server to be reactivated when they so request. You do not want to clog up this site with obsolete information. And to use the site only for your own collections is a very valid use. And so is any research, identification of coins or other ways of using this site.

[solved] Philippine Piso 1989 KM 243.1 and KM 243.3
Posted: 13-Sep-2015, 04:10PM in Numismatic questions

In the Krause is says that the 243.3 has smaller legends and design elements. I have the 1990 Piso that should be a 243.3 (as 1990 is the only year of 243.3) however I do not see any differences with the 1988 and earlier Piso's. Any help to clarify this, so I can classify my 1989 Piso's, is appreciated. • I will move this request with pictures to the coin identification forum.
