[solved] wish list posting

I think there is also the issue that until you have added 1 coin yourself to your swaplist, the number of coins of interest to both parties is not shown on your profile page ( So just add a (virtual) coin for swap in your collection ... a Lincoln cent for example ... then I can for example immediately see how many coins in my swaplist would interest you. • You can also open a swap with me, were you can mark the coins on your wishlist (with a heart) that you would want from me. Like that I (as a potential seller) can immediately see what coins (by type, year, mint) interest you. • good luck!

[solved] An extra French two franc listing...
Posted: 18-Dec-2019, 03:26PM in Numista catalogue

The point is that, but this info is missing on the english page!, the first coin was minted with a different edge (fine reeding) as production had started before the final agreement on coin specifications had been made. The whole production was then destroyed (waffled) but some were recovered before remelting. • So the issue is not the waffling, but a different reeding. Most of the recovered coins with this reeding have been wafled, but there also seem to be some that got out undamaged. • • The English page clearly needs an update with all this extra info. If nobody else does it, I'll give it a go one of these days. I'm quite sure this coin with different reeding deserves its own page.

Variable weight
Posted: 8-Dec-2019, 11:25PM in Numista website

Weight seems to be a discussion point quite often, as we most often do not know the variability of it. • I have noticed in some threads that people try to make a list of measured weights, to get an idea of the average and the variability. Maybe, just like with the buying values of coins, we could add weights to the coins in our collection. Like that an average weight + standard deviation could be derived for the coins (per year if necessary, as some cointypes have varying weights per year), also taking into account the grade of the coin. Just like with buying values it would be a totally voluntary thing to add these weights, but it could result in quite an interesting dataset. • Just an idea ...

Token with griffin - Livonian?
Posted: 8-Dec-2019, 09:22PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Found this strange (copper?) token at an auction, but cannot find anything about it, but it looks old and interesting. • On one side it has a shield with a griffin with sword, that reminds me of the coat of arms of Livonia. • The other side has a wreath and then some flowers with in between what looks like: "II", 2 I's in a cross, 2 I's making an upside down V (lambda?) and then tho bent I's forming a circle. The center is not visible as it seems to have been turned into a button or badge at some time. There also seems to be a seam of some kind between the wreath and the floral section of that side (or could be part of the design as well as it's only partially visible on both ends of the coin and nothing of the kind visible on the other side). • I am waiting for some info on weight and size, but I'm guessing about 12 to 15 mm. • Didn't find anything in the catalogue yet, nor did mr. google be of any help (he suggested it was a dime ) • Anyon[...]

I don't collect these coins, but shouldn't we ignore the differentiation made by Krause and join both on one page (with a variety for 1898, which happens to have its own KM#)? To me they both belong to one type ... with a minute difference in design size (not even in design). • I know there are more coins like this that only differ by minute designsizes ...

Improve swap page to also select coins not in your swaplist yet and select collection
Posted: 3-Sep-2019, 10:59AM in Numista website

More and more often the people wanting to swap don't have any coins that interest me for my collection. Sometimes they want coins I have a lot of and we can do a swap for coins I don't yet have in my swaplist. Like that we still both profit. • Would it be possible to add a button on the exchange pages "I don't have this cointype in my swaplist" to make it easier to find them? • Additionally it might also be useful to select different collections on this page to check coins against, as one sometimes has overlapping collections and might need a coin in both collections. (eg. I already have a Greek Drachme in my Europe collection, but I'm still missing this owl it in my nature collection)

underweight 3 Reis 1764 ?
Posted: 6-Jun-2019, 01:36AM in Coin identifications and valuations

I recently made another wonderfull swap, but one of the coins seems to be off. In the swap was included a Portuguese 3 Reis from 1764 . It is not a very rare coins and many are found online (for sale and sold). The coin I got though was very underweight (2.56g) compared to the numista coinpage (3.8g !). Online I have found weights between 3,0g and 3,94g, but none yet weighing as little as mine. Is there any source for the weight range for this kind of coins? The coin is also rather black than copper-coloured, but that doesn't seem to be unusual for this coin (sale of 3 coins with different colours), it also has some "nice" verdigris which I guess also points to copper. • Here are pictures, it is F/VF, so weight loss from wear is is unlikely to be the reason: • Is it just a normal underweight pre-standardisation coin?

Posted: 13-Mar-2019, 12:51AM in Swaps and trades

I think it is all about a bit of common sense and building up a reputation. If you've built up dozens of succesfull swaps, you'll most obviously not screw someone up for a few coins in a swap. While the new member will still have to build up his/her reputation little by little. • The only times that a swap didn't happen after asking the other side to send first was when I already had doubts about their intentions (very fast agreement on swap, agreement on very uneven value, even asking me to send first). So let's hope your swap partner can understand the reason for you to ask to send first, otherwise it might be a first red flag! • Happy swapping :)

Does your post office allow you to send coins?
Posted: 20-Feb-2019, 12:08PM in Numismatic questions

For letters or padded envelopes and if you don't want to lie/disguise the content when asked: just weigh the envelope yourself, get stamps and just drop it in the mailbox. Once it's in the system they don't seem to bother anymore to check if the content is allowed or not (and they definitely don't come to check it out at the sender's address ). • Experience from Estonia an Belgium, but I'm guessing it will work just as well anywhere else. • PS: And adding some cardboard helps to avoid detection as well.

Post office: "What does the shipment contain?"
Posted: 7-Jan-2019, 10:40PM in Numismatic questions

That's all true for shipments with custom forms. But when you want to send cheap, like me, you send as a letter (a normal envelope). Those are normally only allowed to contain paper, with maximum 5mm thickness. Even with well concealed coins, the clerks can notice there is something non-papery and as such should be sent as a parcel (much more expensive!). These last few months there seems to be an international crackdown on non-paper stuff in envelopes, judging from comments on the forum and personal experience in Belgium and Estonia. • So yes, a little lie might be necessary. If they insist, you can always say it's one of those cards with an annoying song inside. Or just buy stamps and drop it in the mailbox yourself. Never yet did I have a letter returned ... fingers crossed. • Bram

[solved] delete coins from swaps
Posted: 4-Sep-2018, 01:04AM in Numista website

I already find it confusing that I cannot track the changes that are made in a swap, unless the partner sends me a message explaining what was selected/unselected. So the possibility of making coins disappear altogether is pretty scary ... Having the possibility to delete a coin that is selected by either party is definitely no-go! • The easiest option might be to add a button "hide unselected coins", like that you can just make the ones that neither of the partners have selected (and are thus of no interest anymore) can just be hidden out of view (but can return if necessary).

In my original idea there was a more hierarchical structure (multilevel), where we can tag something as animal (if no more specific tag is available), as a bird (if not recognisable or very specific) or as an eagle. Then when you search for bird you get both those with a bird tag and those with an eagle/penguin/owl/.... tag. Now you have to select all birds or mammals separately if you want to get them all.

That's almost as much as I already have in my collection (about 3100), but getting harder everyday to swap (silver, older, commemoratives, low mintage, ... are the ones missing).

Record data is of course not always comparable, if someone collects up to 5000 coins of the same type ... yes of course they'll have a high number of coins in their collection • It's quite impressive to see how many different coins have been collected by some of the users here and to see the different ways some users collect (type, year, by countr, by continent, by theme, only 1 or more than one per year, ...), but as everyone collects in his own way I don't think comparing them is of any use. I recently started to collect original rolls of €2 commemoratives, but if I insert them in Numista there's really no point comparing this amount to someone just trying to complete the San Marino cointypes.

A Canadian token I am being offered (so no weight or diameter yet available). I've already narrowed it down to 4 types in our catalogue, but there seems to be an endless amount of varieties. Our Canadian tokens-lovers seem to be around for the moment so it's the right time to ask! • Can you identify the variety from these pictures (ampersand is very worn, but ship is still quite nice)? And if so, does this "common" token still have value in this state? • The obverse seems to go towards VF according to Coins and Canada and the reverse I guess is more like F • Is 30 CAD (€20) a correct estimate? • Thanks you all for your help, as always! •

[solved] "Topics that I have posted in" should have a link for each sub-forum

You have to have the possibility to start swapping at some time. I don't think some specific cutoff numbers can prevent all problems. • As you said yourself be careful and start swapping with members who have proven themselves trustworthy over a longer period of time. • Good luck!

I should have said most common materials, as I think it would also show porcelain or plastic, if it is common enough (top 10). Therefore it's very important to have uniform names in the material field .... bimetallic and bi-metallic would be counted separately like mentioned by cncote10. • Being able to see a full overview of all materials could help to find those inconsistencies.

[solved] Number of coins in collection vs for swap
Posted: 16-May-2018, 01:58PM in Numista website

It all depends a bit. The new layout is indeed a bit more work, but gives more flexibilty. Not only can you add coin values or state the grade of the coins you have for swap, you also have the posibilty to offer coins for swap in different conditions (eg. 2 VF, 1 XF, 2 UNC) and the swapper can choose the condition he prefers. Also the comments are separate for the coin in your collection and the coins you have for swap. • I guess just a matter of how much detail you want and if you are prepared to add that little extra time when inserting • Don't forget that (IIRC) you loose all the extra information when switching back to the old system!

[solved] Change of Reval's Flag + Narva, Danish Estonia, and Ösel–Wiek
Posted: 14-May-2018, 08:37AM in Numista catalogue

If Ösel-Wiek gets it own flag/CoA, then we should do the same for Reval and Narva I think. If we order them grouped by Swedish and Danish Estonia we could still get the best of both worlds, both the Swedish/Danish flag for the subcountry + the local flag for the issuers themselves ... • For Reval we could then use the three leopards CoA (as seen on most coins) and for Narva the CoA with the 2 fish and 2 swords (also on the coins). Then they get a bit more of local identitiy ;)

Some specific fields to be added (probably not in the right box, as text could be too long): • - watermark • - security thread • Just wondering about "shape", I guess there might be some square notes (but that you can see from dimensions), but are there any other shapes around? Otherwise it could be left out. • And I would use "material" instead of "paper" to designate what it is made out of. • For layout, I would let the banknotes use up the whole width of the page and move the box below or put the two pictures underneath each other. Unlike coins they need a bit more space horizontally ... • PS I like the totally overvalued banknote prices on NumisCorner (shouldn't that also become NotisCorner ;)) • PPS Let's keep pushing and suggesting this, hope one day (in a future not too far away) Xavier will give in to scrap-paper collectors.

Some Automatization of the swap procedure
Posted: 17-Apr-2018, 11:35AM in Numista website

It does sound like a nice idea and I've also been thinking about it. Only, you need to be able to disable it, as quite often during a swap you get the "I don't collect by date, just pick the nicest one" and unless you ask the partner to re-pick that new specific year/mint, you'll end up having the wrong coin automatically deducted. • It's probably useful if you also get the possibility to chance a swap-proposal more easily (eg. change year/mint) without having to go back to the swaplist.

If we're doing suggestions to improve the map, why not include a time-function? • Now the map just shows all aggregated currencies for certain areas. What about a function to select a certain year (1850) or period (1801-1900 or 3rd century BC) to see from what countries/territories/issuers you have coins. Especially nice for collectors who collect from certain periods, as to avoid issuers that did not exist at that specific time. It could also for example avoid the map-hierarchy problem mentioned by JustForFun and the Greenland-Denmark issue, as in 1990 Danish coins are indeed used in Greenland, but when you look at 1930 (or somewhere thereabout) it indeed had it's own currency (I think). • It's an idea connected to this post about creating currency-timelines: So it would need extending the map with periods in which the coins were in use in certain areas. There would also be some overlap of course during certain periods/areas,[...]

So that indeed does not seem to be way to distinguish. I was wondering if they would also change the die in the middle of 1981 at the same time they change the alloy? So probably need help to distinguish brass from bronze. • And is the KM849a from 1981 supposed to be in copper like the comment on the sheet states?

Maybe even with a date function to search for coins circulating on a certain moment in history, though at the moment that would give very incorrect results as very few demonetized dates have been inserted (sounds like a new CCIP project!) and then we should maybe also add emission dates (not always the same as the year a coin was first minted).

Sounds fun, count me in ... • Maybe you can also add more than 1 banknote if you feel like it, so the next person has some choice when picking a note ... or more if he/she adds at least the same amount of notes. Like this the selection of notes can increase a bit during the trip and you can decrease the possibility of receiving a note you yourself already have in abundance (especially if the trip is planned with sending on to local or neighbouring collectors). • And BTW ... I'd be more than happy to receive some Notgeld :-)

Quote: "ngdawa"​ • Quote: "Cricket"Minus whatever country that never used animals but I bet you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere modern that has never utilized a type of animal/fish/bug whatever on a coin!​That would be Sweden. I don't think Sweden ever had any anmals at all on its coins. Just the King's head or his monogram on the obverse, and the denomination on the reverse.​The most animal'ish coin from Sweden will be the silver 1 and 2 krona coins from Oscar II with two heraldic lions holding the shield ... that also contains 2 lions ... that's 4 in total (a group of random male lions seems to be called a "coalition") • this might be the easiest one to obtain:

Prussia - 1764A 1/12 Reichsthaler - Friedrich II -which one?
Posted: 16-Apr-2017, 09:42PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Hello, • I got a 1764A 1/12 Reichsthaler from Prussia in a lot and as these German States coins are (still) out of my field of experience, I need some assistance. • This is the coin: • Diameter: 22,5 mm (should be 24 ... that's 1,5 mm off) • Thickness: 1,1 mm • Weight not known • Ice-test confirms silver • In Numista the only coin for 1764A is KM#298, but the portrait is different, the 12 has a bigger curl and the flowers next to the 12 differ as well (5 petals on my coin and 4 petals on Numista). • There is also KM#311 for the same period, but not for 1764A. The design of the 12 is the same as my coin though. Flower and portrait still different. • In Standard Catalog of World Coins, 1701-1800 I found a third coin, that also has 1764A: KM#297. There is a picture included with flower with 4 petals and a very curly 2. • Online I find different coins from 1764A: • for sale on ebay, looks like KM#297 • in t[...]

Varieties on Thailand 25 satang - Rama IX
Posted: 27-Feb-2017, 02:58PM in Coin identifications and valuations

Hi, • I have 11 coins of this type. Five of them seem to have a "fatter" font and they are all from 2009. I have "thin font"-types from 2008, 2009 and 2010. • As I can't find any info on varieties for this coin, I'm wondering if it might also just be an optical illusion due to the wearing off of the lustre, though that would be weird that they're all from this same year. • • Please have a look, can you find the difference? • Here the two (possible) varieties from 2009. • Thanks for looking • Bram
