Quote: "Choucas"​Hello, • ​ • ​First of all, I don't want to take a position on this 'drama'. I don't know what happened, and actually I don't care who's right or not. That's not my business. • ​ • ​Whatever, the angry people are often the ones who are speaking louder, they said, so maybe happy people should express their opinions as well. I'm posting this message to say that I've already dealt with Marcos, and it was a real pleasure. He kept his word, communication was friendly and I cannot point a single problem. • ​ • ​That's all, folks, have a nice day. ​I have dealt with Grinya, he is great as well! I had had no problems with any of my communications with him. Yay for positivity!

Hey everyone • Happy New Years! Anyone up for some swaps? US swaps preferred due to shipping costs

Posted: 21-Dec-2019, 04:43PM in Swaps and trades

I’m up for a swap if you see anything on my list of interest!

Posted: 15-Dec-2019, 10:44AM in Swaps and trades

I actually really enjoy the sales posts and have bought some coins that I have enjoyed quite a bit. I think that moderation of the sales is key, I didn’t have a problem with Andy289 selling but agree that rules should be enforced equally across all members. I also support the recent sales rules changes.

open for more swaps if anyone wants!

Posted: 19-Sep-2019, 06:22AM in Free discussion

I began collecting mostly US coins, then expanded to any world coin I didn't have by KM#. I have scaled back on that a bit, although I still buy the occasional US coin and will trade for world coins I don't have, but most of my purchasing has progressed to medieval coinage, some Roman coins, and coins from countries/issuers that I do not have yet (which happens to be mostly medieval and older coins). The medieval coins are absolutely fascinating to me. Collect what you like!

Quote: "cro321"​ • Quote: "derf"​ • ​ • Quote: "cro321"​As far as I know the system uses the median value, not the average. • ​​ • ​​ • ​​ ​​​​​Interesting. I had no idea in English mode, median and mean are all together grouped as average. Seems a bit confusing to me but it's probably just a language barrier. But I guess I'm not the only one since I remember the discussion on the subject when values were first introduced and I remember other members also making a difference between average and median. Thanks for clearing that up. The mean is the average, the median is the number in the middle when the numbers are arranged from smallest to largest, not the average. ​Mean, median, and mode are not the same in the English language.

Thanks everyone. I have had swaps with my home address as well, I just have moved and am considering the PO Box for extra security, but the cost may not be worth it. I appreciate the viewpoints from you all as I consider. Although I think my wife would prefer a PO Box so that’s probably what I’ll end up doing haha

I live in Utah currently and love it! You are right, there are few reasons to leave the mountain west! Your rig you take to Moab (from the other thread) looks awesome! I plan to go there with my mountain bike this summer and hit some of the epic trails in the area. We go to Idaho and Wyoming frequently and have some trips planned there for the summer. • Not sure how close you are to Texas but I did live in Texas for a while and I do miss some Texas BBQ and blue bell ice cream mmmmmmmmm
